ABOUT THE OWNER
Kendall Rose is owner and creative director of The Revel Rose. Born and raised in a suburb of Detroit, she found herself moving ever west and north after college where she earned degrees in geography and anthropology and then worked for private, public, and non-profit entities building a career in sustainable urban and rural community planning. She honed her skills in community engagement and civic planning, where she learned the value of creating experiences that make lasting impressions and influence change. Somewhere along the way she met Ryan Rose and he was infinitely better than any other plans she had ever made. They moved way south then way north as she worked for the National Park Service and ended up in Leelanau County where she had spent summers camping and visiting her great aunts on Big Glen Lake.
While working with a Leelanau County based catering team during her first summer up north she became encouraged by the entrepreneurial spirit and creative freedom found in Northern Michigan, and admired the family-oriented Midwest charm of the hospitality of such events, and started building The Revel Rose.
Bringing her background in community event planning, the hospitality industry, graphic design and visual arts, while being a self-declared ambassador of Northern Michigan and all it has to offer, she hopes to create deeply meaningful and unique experiences for people in all stages of life's celebrations.
ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE
Kendall launched The Revel Rose shortly after her own wedding in Northern Michigan in October 2017. She was inspired to reach out to couples like her; those who were a bit lost in the traditional wedding world, who have a specific vision for their day and want to be connected to the best people to carry that vision through, and who may be doing things a little differently.
WHAT SETS US APART
We are lucky enough to be surrounded by an incredibly collaborative community of wedding professionals in Northern Michigan, including a richly diverse & experienced group of wedding planners! There is a planner for everyone and every wedding, and The Revel Rose prides itself on three area of emphasis that we hope connect us with our ideal couples:
-We value the small business community and the ways in which the wedding industry can support historic and cultural venues, artists, makers, entertainers, and other small business owners! We spend a lot of time cultivating vendor relationships and offering you our very best recommendations, and hope you are inspired by our local entreprenurial spirit as well while planning your wedding.
-We value the pristine beauty of the Great Lakes and our up north living, and want our weddings to be a reflection of environmental awareness and sustainability. As a result, we prioritize working with couples who are interested in hosting a minimal waste event, and sourcing their wedding provisions from as local as possible, while working with our preferred catering & waste specialist teams to make that possible.
-Non-traditional is our jam. You won't have to spend a lot of time trying to explain that special ritual you have with your partner, feeling strange about the role your cultural and heritage customs have in your special day, or justifying why having a Tuesday wedding is what you want. We're here for the quirky, weird, wonderful things that set you apart and define the experience of you, being in love.

Wonderful wedding planning experience with Kendall Rose!
Working with Kendall Rose was a wonderful experience from day one. Kendall is very professional, pragmatic, and down-to-earth. She helped execute our vision for our special day. My husband and I would absolutely recommend Kendall as a wedding coordinator; she made our day go very smoothly. Kendall also coordinated our rehearsal, which helped us a lot. She too is very thourough and detail-oriented. Thank you, Kendall!Sent on 10/29/2019

Authentic, fun, and super talented!
I cannot begin to say enough amazing things about Kendall. I hired her for her month-of service package, and I have ZERO regrets. Kendall is the planner and the celebration. The realist and the dreamer. Her goal is to make sure your event runs smoothly behind-the-scenes, but she also is deeply invested in making sure you and your significant other have the most amazing time of your lives. She brings an energy and calmness to the chaos that is event planning that I am forever thankful for. I don’t know what our wedding and reception would have looked like without her help, but I’m so thankful we’ll never have to know. And did I mention how design savvy she is?! I would bring an idea to her (that I didn't even have fully thought out), and she would run with it and bring it to life with the end result 100x better than what I could have ever imagined. So if you want someone who is authentic, fun, and SUPER TALENTED, hire Kendall. You won't regret it.Sent on 10/11/2019

My only Daughter’s Wedding
The Revel Rose deserves high marks for both planning and execution. For a Saturday wedding, they were on site full time from Thursday until the end. Every detail was covered, leaving me (father of the bride) free to spend an enjoyable, care free night at a special wedding. Kudos to Kendall, Caitlin and crew!Sent on 09/26/2019
The Revel Rose's reply:Paul! Thank you for the kind words and thank you for giving us the opportunity to plan this wonderful and festive day along with you and Adrienne! Caitlin and I could not be more surprised or amazed by how many fun additions of color and character you all brought to weekend. I am so glad you were able to fully enjoy the weekend celebrating, and we had so much fun getting to know you throughout this past year. Take good care!
