Wedding Planner Workshop
As someone who recently graduated from college, LVL Academy was the perfect step towards a career in the wedding and events industry. I learned valuable skills through discussion and hands on learning and left feeling equipped with all the right tools to go out and continue to pursue my passion.

Thank you!! And thank you SO much for everything. During the academy you said some words that truly hit home for me... and I’m forever grateful for it. You ladies are absolutely something I aspire to be; to be a super awesome planner AND be a mentor to other planners.

I only wish I could keep a recording of the two days.
— Kristen Moux, Owner of Kristen Moux Events
I had a fabulous time learning from all of you. I will continue to share with others and on all the social media forums to spread the word about your academy. There really is nothing else out there like this and it is exactly what I was looking for at the perfect time as I start my new career. So grateful that my friend, Teresa at Rickety Swank, told me about it when she did. I feel strong and ready to kick 2017 into high gear!

Thank you so much for the excellent weekend at LVL Academy. The content was top notch, and I learned much more than I thought possible. Definitely a case of you don’t know what you don’t know! It was great getting to meet you all, and its easy to see why your business has been able to flourish as it has. I am so glad that I found LVL Academy at this point in my entrepreneurial journey, and can’t wait to put all of your best practices into use!

I would highly recommend attending LVL Academy if you dream of planning weddings, just started planning weddings or have been planning weddings for a couple of years. There is so much knowledge and experience that comes from the instructors who each have 8-20 years of experience planning weddings. No question is off limits and you gain a community that is extremely rare to find in this community. If you are on the edge about attending then consider this your push off the ledge! You should definitely attend, the investment is SO worth it.

The LVL Academy far exceeded my expectations! The first thing that comes to my mind when I reflect back on the experience and the people is how giving they were. Giving of their information, their time, and themselves. The academy was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I was on the fence about whether or not I wanted to leave the security blanket of my corporate job for all of the unknowns that come with starting your own business, that’s SCARY! After spending 2 days with the ladies at LVL and hearing from all of the amazing vendors, I left feeling confident, prepared, and exhilarated for taking the next step. I left not feeling like I knew everything there was to know... that’s not what they promise; but I left feeling informed. After the 2nd day I heard myself saying, “Yes, this will be challenging, you will make mistakes, but that’s normal...you can thrive, and now you have the tools necessary to get started.” I truly feel like LVL was the opening paragraph of a new chapter I’m going to write in my life and I can already tell I’m not going to want to stop writing!

LVL Academy is the first place you need to go after ‘I want to be a wedding planner’ idea pops into your head. The course is filled with the fundamentals of wedding planning as well as insightful information about the wedding industry as a whole. Lindsay, Kerri and Heather have perfected the introductory course to learning about weddings. They are full of information and happy to share it. Their presence during the course and knowledge of practically every wedding topic you could think of solidified for me that I made the right choice to take the course, not to mention they are all wonderful, lovely, and hard working girl bosses. I have been working in the industry for 8 years and still came home with a notebook full of notes and information to apply to my business. From novices to intermediate experience, LVL Academy is the place you need to go to educate yourself on all things wedding.

LVL Academy is on my top list of recommendations for those looking to build a career in the industry. The academy is two days long but beyond worth it. Even though I have dabbled in different areas of the industry over the years I still had so much to learn. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t reference back to my folder of knowledge that I received from the academy. Not only is LVL about the knowledge but it’s about the experience and the connections. To be able to learn from and connect to like minded individuals such as yourself is always comforting and inspiring. I will say that I left this academy feeling more excitement than I’ve ever had about building a career in the industry. Thank you Lindsay, Heather, Keri and the LVL Academy team for putting this all together for myself and others who are interested in growing in this industry.

LVL Academy was well worth the time and investment!! I can’t speak highly enough of Heather, Lindsay and Kerri. The days were well planned out, packed with useful information and the speakers were amazing. In addition to classroom style learning, there was hands on experience including cake cutting, bow tie tying and much more. Not to mention great networking opportunities!! Thank you LVL Academy!

The LVL Academy team truly cares about each member of Academy, and is extremely generous with knowledge and insight. I would highly recommend it to anyone starting in the industry or looking for some formal education!
