From Our Editors
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
_ You know how weddings shows are terrible? Well, we decided to change that. In addition to music, films, and photography, we are the creators and producers of The Lovesick Expo, a wedding event proudly representing the unrepresented. Lovesick is the nation's largest alternative wedding expo bringing together cool and unique wedding vendors that appeal to couples having trouble finding their voice represented in the traditional and often high-pressure wedding market. The ever-growing show is expanding year after year thanks to our partnership with Offbeat Bride! For our 2015 shows, we united more than 3,000 cool attendees and vendors in Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, LA, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Lovesick is the creation of Tom Wright and Jon Holmes – two friends who bring their diverse passions and a ton of wedding experience together to bring your event to life. Our journey began as "Hi-Society Entertainment," a word-of-mouth DJ duo that soon had Tom and Jon live-spinning at seventy weddings each year for clients that were looking for something beyond the traditional. Throughout the seasons, we found that we kept seeing the same small handful of vendors at every wedding. It became clear to us that our clientele was actively seeking like-minded, progressive wedding professionals. So, we decided to produce an event that put all of those original vendors and couples in the same room at the same time -- The Lovesick Expo. In 2011, we brought another love of ours, filmmaking, to the wedding world, utilizing Jon's shooting and editing abilities to create wedding films unlike anything out there. We built up the team by recruiting the most talented people we know so that even more couples will get to experience what a truly fresh, creative event can feel like. And now with the addition of our photography services, Lovesick has become an eclectic one-stop-shop for those looking to challenge the wedding mainstream. We work mainly in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, but often travel throughout the East Coast and to destination events around the globe.
