Wedding Planner Workshop

YouR Top Choice in wedding planner education

Being a wedding planner can be incredibly gratifying - bringing everything someone has been dreaming of to life, overcoming challenges to save the day, and being able to take charge of your own career. But, it can also be a long road to success if you’re going at it alone. That’s why we started LVL Academy. To help planners connect with each other and learn from other professionals, all while working to elevate the future of the wedding industry together!

 Join us for one of our 2019 in-person wedding planner workshops - 3 days of panels, hands-on learning, networking, and the inspiration you need to elevate your own career as a successful wedding planner.

3-Day Fall November 12th, 13th & 14th ORANGE COUNTY, CA

LVL Academy is a hands-on, wedding planner workshop for people who want to learn wedding planning fundamentals and best practices - regardless of the stage of their career.

Or, as we like to say - LVL Academy is everything we know about wedding planning packed into just a few days!
