Workshop Announcement!!

One of my biggest goals of AVE was to host a workshop. In the planning world I found there was little education and community among planners. There are literally endless opportunities for photographers and florists, but nothing that catered toward planners! After ending the first Creative at Heart Conference and seeing the initiative other businesses where taking I talked to Tricia and decided the time to launch this thing was NOW! This summer we will be launch our first ever workshop out of our farm in Warrenton, VA! I am so excited and extremely nervous!!


For those that want more information on it, see below!


The first day will be classroom style. We want to go over all the ins and outs of wedding planning. Where to start, how to attract your ideal client, where to invest, creating packages and pricing, the works!! We will share our contracts and planning templates as well!

Breakfast, Lunch and Happy Hour will be provided!


The second day will be all about styling. Krista A. Jones Photography and Amanda Veronee will be joining us too for an informal Q&A to answer any questions you have! YAY! The morning will have a short classroom session on Press and How to Get Featured and then we will jump into a full on photo shoot at my farm! During the lunch break Krista will be taking new head shots for everyone too! The photo shot will be totally interactive that we will work together to style. We will have a style bar and we'll work piece by piece to put it all together!

Breakfast and Lunch will be provided!

We are so excited to be a apart of the Community of Competition movement and hope to you come join us this summer! To sign up or for FAQs's please see registration site, here!

Till next time, happy planning! Cheers!
