Illuminate Masters: Wedding Marketing and Wedding PR Wonderfulness

Well I know they say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” but alas, rules were made to be broken yes? 🙂

It’s no secret that I love offering Illuminate: the Workshop, my half day, cost effective seminar to my colleagues in the wedding industry. And apparently, I’m not the only one as we’ve consistently sold out each workshop along the way.

I’ve found, however, that there is a need for those who want more education but may not be necessarily looking for retainer services. Illuminate: the Workshop is a fast paced day and while jam packed full of information, yet ultimately,  it hardy scratches the surface for what needs to get done to get the bride.

So with that, I am pleased to launch Illuminate: Masters this coming August 2.

In short, I’ve created the Masters session for those who sincerely want to take a comprehensive look into the top challenges at successfully marketing one’s business. We’ll dive into Bridal Sales, Wedding PR, Partnership Marketing and Wedding Trends. The content will be fresh, inspiring and normally  reserved for OFD clients only.

We’ll be at Five Star, Five Diamond Jefferson Hotel here in Richmond, Virginia. If you haven’t had the pleasure of attending an event here, then you are in for a treat!

Fair warning- this is not your standard wedding marketing and wedding pr workshop.

There will be homework (yes, homework!), candid discussions and a complimentary one-hour follow up session individual with each attendee.

Here’s the kicker- we are limiting the registration to 12 attendees total. I softly launched the Masters program after Illuminate: the Workshop and we already have a few folks registered.  Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Ready to get the last of the tickets? Click HERE for more info.

Please note that registration covers breakfast, lunch and parking.

Also a BIG congrats to Honeylyn Armstrong and Stephanie Yonce, who have won the complimentary tickets to An Artful Wedding on June 12! I’ll be in touch soon ladies!
