Life & Work with Patricia Galceran

Today we’d like to introduce you to Patricia Galceran. 

Hi Patricia, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Well, we started because my husband and I had our wedding, and well it cost us a lot of money. We ended up buying everything for the wedding and I had thought to just sell it after. But after making everything, and creating everything, I decided that I wanted to become a place where couples could save money, and not have to hold back on the way they want their wedding to look like. It has been a joy seeing couples happy and saving money. I’m a person who loves to give and make people happy, and this company allows me to do just that, especially because all tese couples want is to just share their love with their loved ones and make it look beautiful for the pictures so they can look back at them. Ad that’s where the name comes in. It’s called, “Con Amor” because the meaning is “with love” everything I have, everything I made was sourced, or made, “with love”. Being that I am Hispanic, I really embrace my Hispanic side with my brand. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
There have been several struggles! Having a place to store everything, and as well a place to make the rental process easier. I’m currently working on my website where couples can just click a wishlist and everything gets automated to an estimate. I have a background in design, and my husband and I build branding for direct-to-consumer brands. So, with our experience we were able to set the look and feel of the brand ourselves. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I personally am a designer. I do a lot of product/wardrobe styling. I’m also a graphic designer, and help strategize brands. All these experiences have helped build Con Amor Rentals. I have handmade pieces that you won’t be able to source. And everything is affordable. We pride ourselves on being affordable and working with budgets. We hope to grow and see more couples happy. 

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
I’m a really happy person, and a lot of things do. But one of the most things is being creative, and making things with my hands. Seeing people’s visions come true, and being a part of the process is really fulfilling.
