Gretchen Culver

Owner and creative director, Rocket Science Events

Description

“Unflappable” and “innovative” are how event industry colleagues describe Gretchen Culver, founder of Minneapolis-based Rocket Science Events, which designs and produces weddings, corporate events, galas, and experiences that have won international awards and been featured in print. When Covid-19 struck, Culver innovated again, launching Minne Weddings to produce “micro-weddings,” a trend that persists as couples look for more affordable yet stylish options. Last year, she expanded the service, adding Windy Mini Weddings in Chicago. And she didn’t stop at three: Culver launched another brand, Culver Creative, in 2021, providing coaching and consulting services for creative professionals.
