In this week's episode, Jen sits down with feminist Brooklyn wedding planner Amy Shackelford of Modern Rebel and Co. to review Season 1, Episode 3 of Gilmore Girls "Kill Me Now" where the Independence Inn is host to a double wedding where twin brides marry twin grooms. They talk their love of Gilmore Girls, mother daughter relationships as they relate to weddings, and the unfortunate ableism, homophobia, and white feminism that exists throughout the show. But most importantly, they talk about Amy's fear of swans and her love of Shania Twain.
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.
Amy is the Founder and Lead Planner of Modern Rebel & Co., an alternative event planning company in Brooklyn, NY and Austin, TX specializing in what she calls, “love parties.” She plans weddings for people that sorta hate weddings and gives back to local non-profits in the process. When she's not planning the coolest parties around, you will find her traveling, testing a new recipe, or dancing like a fool to Shania Twain.
