For Wedding Professionals

Imagine a space where wedding vendors learn from each other: veterans and newbies, photographers and florists, numbers-minded and not-so-great-at-math types. Now imagine all these vendors share your off-the-beaten-path sensibilities. They're diverse, funky, progressive (even feminist!), equality-loving, bold, game-changers who aim to work with couples having fun, creative, crazy-in-love weddings. 

{un}convention is that place.

{un}convention is a special kind of workshop: the kind that comes to you! In November 2014, Catalyst hosted the first {un}convention in Richmond, VA. With a sold-out group of wedding professionals from Philadelphia to Virginia Beach, the event featured peer critiques, networking, headshots for all, and a collaborative styled photo shoot that was featured in the Spring 2015 issue of Catalyst Wedding Magazine. In December 2015, we brought the experience to Brooklyn and hosted 60+ wedding professionals at the glorious Atelier Roquette. March 13, 2016 we're headed to San Francisco, where {un}convention Part Three will be taking place at Honeybook HQ. Buy you tickets now!

For Couples

With so many bride-focused publications out there featuring totally unrealistic aspirational photos of 14K-gold-dipped tapers floating magically above succulent-drowned dinner tables (no offense meant to tapers or succulents), it's time to focus back on the point of weddings: to celebrate love. Catalyst Wedding Magazine may very well be the first wedding publication that doesn't totally overwhelm you. Each issue features:

  • Gorgeous photo spreads featuring diverse couples
  • Personal stories that transcend the nitty gritty of wedding planning and tap into universal themes
  • International journalism about the state of same sex marriage in different parts of the world
  • Photos from our twice-yearly (un)convention (a gathering for awesome wedding vendors)
  • Satirical wedding advice and humor pieces
  • Useful tips ranging from how to DIY your wedding cocktails to making a marriage plan
  • Features of businesses we believe in who are shaking things up in the wedding industry
  • Calligraphy & illustrations by talented artists
  • Quizzes & horoscopes (duh, why else would you buy a magazine?)
