The Business of Luxury Weddings Podcast

Jack Ezon

In this episode

We’re joined by travel industry icon and founder and partner of EMBARK Beyond, Jack Ezon. He shares his journey, what sets his team apart, and why travel matters. He also shares luxury trends in the wedding industry and beyond. 

As luxury shifts from conspicuous consumption to conscious consumption, we have to change how we think about the services we provide. It’s not that people are spending less money, they are just choosing to spend smarter, and putting more meaning behind every buying choice. 

In the luxury travel space, crafting a great experience shouldn’t start with the location, it starts with the feeling people are seeking. It’s about focusing on the ingredients of the experience rather than the deliverable. What they want, not where they want. 

This is especially true in the destination wedding space – where travel intersects with celebration, meaning, and connection. How do we deliver experiences driven by meaning, not money? What is the secret to building relationships with luxury vendors? Where is luxury travel headed and what does it mean for weddings?
