Hey there my friends,
How about some small talk to introduce this episode…lovely weather we’re having, isn’t it? (or perhaps not so much, depending on where you’re reading this from)
Weather plays a huge factor in the outcome of events, especially weddings. And who better to tell us all about it than our guest this week on Episode 176 of Talk with Renee Dalo “Talk About Wedding Meteorology with Andrew Leavitt”.
Andrew is the founder of Ironic, a concierge wedding meteorologist service. However, he started his career in events over 20 years ago. First in private event planning, then moving his focus to large scale festivals and concert tours as a specialist dedicated to event meteorology, crowd management, safety, and risk mitigation in partnership with AEG Presents, Goldennvoice, and Live Nation.
Andrew founded Ironic in 2020 in order to help wedding pros better understand how to manage the forecasted weather they have to work with, as well as creating a safe environment for couples and guests, and limiting legal risk as much as possible in the event of severe weather. Andrew is all about keeping safety a priority. On this EP we cover the importance of knowing what to expect when it comes to an event, success and safety, as well as the importance of having all the facts. We also talk about the benefits of having your own personal meteorologist ready at hand for your big day, and the difference it can make.
Not to mention, Andrew is a self proclaimed Alanis Morissette superfan, so if you’ve ever wondered what my personal favorite Alanis song is (I know you’re curious), you’re just gonna have to tune in to this episode!
So grab your coffee or your tea, put on some Alanis Morissette in the background, and let’s get ready to talk about it.
