Welcome! My name is Sam Roccapriore, Owner of Rose Rocc Weddings & Events. I am a certified meeting professional with over 10 years experience in the events industry. When I am not wedding planning, I enjoy baking delicious treats (French macarons are my favorite), kayaking and lifting weights (it helps that my partner is a strength and conditioning coach!). My new show obsessions are Ted Lasso and Insecure. I have a pretty eclectic taste in music and listen to everything from Donna Summers to Santana to JCole to Dirty Heads and more. The last concert I went to was Dreamville Festival in North Carolina. Thank you for visiting my website and I can't wait to learn about you and your wedding vision!
WHO IS ROSE ROCC?
Let's start with Rocc. These are the first four letters of my last name and has been a family nickname for decades. On occasion, my mom used to call me and my siblings pebbles (she's so funny lol).
Rose is in honor of my Nonna (my mom's mother), one of the most welcoming and social souls around. If you ever stopped by her house, no matter what time of night, she would make you a full meal, coffee and of course cookies. It's most likely where my love of baking came from. I was very young when she passed away, but I have such wonderful memories of us baking together, her teaching me little resourceful tricks and watching wrestling. She was amazing! My grandparents sacrificed so much to come to this country, it felt right to name my business in her honor. This was their wedding picture
