Based out of Rochester, Curated Love: The Pop-Up Wedding Project specializes in intimate, fully styled, & all inclusive weddings! Curated Love pop-up weddings began when two best friends, Lea and Casey saw a void in the Rochester wedding scene while planning their own.
“We were surprised that weddings hadn’t changed much since our parents got married. The traditional wedding felt stiff, repetitive, and so expensive! The pop-up wedding concept was already popular in larger cities, but it was missing in Rochester! Launching our business about 2 weeks before the pandemic means it’s been a wild ride. However, we are determined to turn panic into purpose! Curated Love helps couples have intimate and safe weddings that are beautiful, memorable and romantic.”

Wedding Traditions with a Twist
In an intimate wedding, we are able to dedicate a significant amount of time and energy to focus on what matters to you as a couple. Our priority is bringing your vision to life. Most importantly, we’ll will work with you to ensure you get exactly what you want out of your day. We believe your wedding should be about what you value as a couple rather than what your great aunt wants for dinner. At Curated Love Pop-Up Weddings, we embrace tradition, but with a twist. Each pop-up has a unique mood board to set the theme. After that, a group of extremely talented local vendors is recruited. It’s important that our themes compliment the season, the venue, and facilitate flexibility for the couples.
A Wedding Day that won’t Bankrupt You
Curated Love pop-up weddings are budget friendly weddings, with transparent pricing. Why should you have to choose between a wedding and your financial future? We can’t imagine having to choose between having a wedding, and buying a house. Most of us are still paying off student loans! Similarly, we’d all like to have a honeymoon, right? Weddings are expensive! Our pop-up’s are here to show that you can have a beautiful, memorable experience at a fraction of the cost!
To sum it up, love is love. If you want to get hitched, we’re here for you! Curated Love Pop-Up Weddings don’t discriminate against any race, gender or ethnicity. Furthermore, we work hard to source officiants that make you as a couple feel seen, and comfortable. Our couples are embracing a modern way to wed! They’re incorporating the best parts of a traditional wedding with fresh elements, and allowing their day to be about what really matters– one another.
