What if your wedding business was always profitable no matter what was going on in the world?
Imagine if you had...
A trusted referral network that funneled you amazing clients every month
Visibility in local & national wedding industries that consistently brought you big opportunities
Solid business friendships to rely on during challenging times (hello, 2020)
A proven way to make mutually beneficial connections in a changing landscape
Membership in aligned associations to support you in good times and bad
Introducing the Wedding Summit Series: Community Edition
Because community is what wedding professionals need most right now.
If you’re thinking…
“Community is nice… but what I need is more revenue!”
...then here’s what you’re missing:
A better community = better clients with better budgets (and increased income).
And on a personal level, our work is truly about relationships, and right now we're all feeling a little alone. This summit will be a virtual gathering place to learn, make new connections and start this season with a fresh perspective.
Unsure About Your Current Referral Network In Our “New Normal”
Feeling Disconnected and Disheartened About the Past Year
Eager To Network & Get More Business - But Don’t Know Where To Start
It's time to expand your circle, gain more referrals, and level up your networking skills for 2021 and beyond
Our single-topic summits help you truly master one important skill at a time.
Summits that tackle the entire scope of running a wedding business can only scratch the surface of every topic. This can have attendees feeling like they’re leaving with more “to-do’s” and “to-learns” than actual new skills.
That’s why the Wedding Summit Series focuses on ONE TOPIC at a time. We go deep to ensure that you leave having MASTERED the topic area and are ready to implement right away!
We’re kicking it off with THE topic that will make the most difference in your wedding business as we leave the strange season of 2020: leaning into your COMMUNITY.
Monday-Friday, February 22-26, with a variety of presentations and panels to choose from every day.
Virtual. Right from the comfort of your computer or smartphone!
Each day there will be 4-5 recorded presentations, which will be 20-25 minutes in length. They will be released at 9am PST each day and available for 24 hours to encourage you to take action.
Hear from wedding associations and industry leaders on everything from finding an aligned community and getting on preferred lists to social media best practices. There are several panels to choose from each day.
Yep, we're going to start showing our community spirit with a private Facebook group. Panels, daily giveaways, live Q+A's with our speakers and more will all happen inside this group.
After registering, you'll have the opportunity to get the All-Access Connector pass. This includes premium bonuses, additional panels, VIP networking sessions and lifetime access to all the summit recorded content.
Hear from community builders, educators, team leaders and trail-blazers from both in and out of the wedding industry.

MEET YOUR HOST
Hi there - I'm Margaux Fraise.
I’m the founder of Harmony Creative Studio, a wedding planning studio for stylish and busy professionals.
In 2014, just three years into my wedding planning business, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer. Since then I've had the opportunity to figure out what's really valuable in love, life and business.
What I learned? Community is the key to it all.
A proud WIPA member, Rising Tide Tuesdays Together LA Leader and founder of The Los Angeles Small Wedding Collective, I'm living proof that leaning into your community can help your business flourish.
For the Wedding Summit Series: Community Edition, I've gathered leaders in our industry to share their knowledge on how building community can help you and your business, especially in times like these.
I hope to see you there!
