Why Runway? It’s more than the planning we providE…

it is our EXPERIENCE.

//GET TO KNOW ME //

Hi, I'm Rebekkah Rosado and I am the owner of Runway. I am a fiery Italian, crazy dreamer, go-getter, and hustling boss babe. I also am married to the love of my life, Frankie, who is also my hairstylist. ;) I'm real and honest, I love Jesus and I love hard. You will almost always find me with a cup of coffee or glass of wine in my hand and my planner at my side. 

I grew up signing and playing piano and I spent my early college years rocking large festivals like Real Fest and stages like House of Blues as a frontman of a rock band. After a few years of being in the spotlight, I started working behind the scenes as a Production Manager and traveled with concerts and festivals planning sets and creating timelines. After a few years, I realized there was a personal relationship to be had in the event world and that made the events even more worth it and feel like I am making an impact in someone's world. I stumbled upon weddings and never looked back.

I had the amazing opportunity to plan both of designer Naeem Khan's son's weddings in Miami and New York that were featured in Vogue and Brides Magazine. I've also worked with other high profile clients providing event planning services from weddings to fashion shows. 

I have traveled to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, New York, Georgia, Michigan and all across Florida to plan and design events and had the opportunity to be featured in articles in The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, The Bridal Theory and Every Last Detail.

My experience has given me the knowledge and confidence to give you important and honest advice, share with you stress saving tips and offer guidance in hiring the right team. I'm your support system, you go to, a shoulder you can cry on but also one that will tell you how it is - and I promise to always be real with you. 

I wanted to be able to provide this experience to more couples so I started to grow the team here at Runway. With over 500 events under our belt, our team and all of our planners are experienced, knowledgeable, have a keep - it - real mentality. They are passionate and will take care of you 110%.

We can't wait to hear your story and be a part of your crazy amazing day. I can’t wait to hear more!

GIANA TRALONGO

DIRECTOR OF SALES AND OPERATIONS
Hi! My name is Giana. At Runway, we do everything in excellence and the high standards and passion of our planners is why I LOVE being a part of the team. I am a Midwest girl with a big Italian family, which means I love food, wine and talking with my hands! I am also addicted to working out and Reality TV (yes, I admit it - I never skip a season of The Bachelor or Survivor). If I am not in full wedding planning mode, you'll find me movin', groovin' and doing my famous "happy dance". I love being silly and making people laugh and I can't wait to be a part of your big day!

AMARYLIS SERRANO

LEAD PLANNER
My name is Amarylis (Am-Er-El-Is) but everyone calls me Amy. Other than helping plan events, you can find my nose in a book, working a 12 hour shift at the hospital, or dancing my heart out (Spanish, Techno, Anything really). I LOVE people and being a social butterfly. Buy me a tub of cookies and cream ice cream and you have me at your fingertips. Actually, food in general (I blame the hispanic household I was born into) makes me happy. Organization is KEY to my hectic life, so organizing and planning events are two of my greatest strengths (weakness: laundry).
