This week, Jen and guest Renee Dalo of Moxie Bright Events review Sex and the City 2: The Movie, where Stanford Blatch and Anthony Marentino tie the knot at a Connecticut inn with the help of Liza Minnelli. Unfortunately, the women of Sex and the City share a lot of problematic commentary and weird stereotypical gender roles get applied to this same-sex union. The whole movie tries to develop a well-intentioned theme of everyone's right to make their own rules in their marriage, but all those good intentions get lost due to bad writing and the movie's incredibly offensive UAE vacation storyline. And in case you were wondering, yes there are more swans.
Jen Siomacco is the CEO and Creative Director of Catalyst Wedding Co. She works to mesh together her love of feminism, love stories, equality and design into the layout and brand of Catalyst while she sits on her couch and snuggles up with her SUPER lazy cats.
Renée Dalo is the CEO and Lead Planner of Moxie Bright Events, a Southern California wedding planning company. Renee is also a Leader for the Los Angeles chapter of The Rising Tide Society. A champion of innovation and education within the wedding industry, she continues to be an outspoken proponent for going against the status-quo. A born and raised New Yorker, she now makes her home in Los Angeles with her handsome husband, two scruffy dogs, and one elegant cat. Before Renée became an event planner, she was a theatre producer, director and actor. Her favorite events are the ones that marry (pun intended) all the pretty and the personal details with a flair for the dramatic. She can't say no to anything Kate Spade, a weekend getaway, or a well-made bellini.
