WHY Wedventure Workshop Week:

Please join us for a week-long wedding workshop event that celebrates the vendor community as a whole! We are in this together and it takes a village. A true wedding experience comes together when we all work together. So, it’s time to workshop together too! And so we have sought out like-minded instructors and vendors to bring to the world the first of its kind: Wedventure Workshop Week! We hope that you can come hang with us to inspire and be inspired. To make new friends and learn from old ones. To be creative and to create amazing outdoor elopements, city vibes, and full-blown wedding shoots. To learn. To share. To commiserate and celebrate. To kick whatever is holding you back’s ass. And to just be with others who get it. The goal is everyone walks away from the week with new information, new connections + friends and fresh inspiration to kick off the 2019 wedding season!

WHEN: May 5-10, 2019 | WHERE: Bend, Oregon

What does the week look like?

First, let’s talk about the difference between the two types of classes we will offer:

Core Classes:

These are 2 days + 3 nights long and there are 3 sets of them: M-T, T-W or W-T. Plus, each night there will be dinner – TOGETHER – to continue the conversation and meet instructors/vendors you didn’t take a class with that day. That means ALL attendees from ALL genres of the wedding industry. If you start a Core Class on Monday, your included group are Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. If your core class starts on Tuesday, your included group dinners are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If your core classes start on Wednesday, your included group dinners are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. As you can hear, group dinners are super important to us and why they are included in your ticket price. It’s where we will all be together to talk about work, life, media, class etc. and connect.

Breakout Classes:

If you don’t want to attend Workshop Week Core Classes, you can still attend our Breakout Sessions. Each are held in 2 to 3-hour increments only, Monday-Thursday. They will be covering topics such as how to get published, Instagram, Pinterest, workflow, community, green weddings, self-care, etc. Breakout sessions will only cost $50 – $150 per person per class, and you can attend as many as you want throughout the week. Group dinners are not included but don’t worry, you can still pay to attend.

  • Wedventure TIP: Sign up for the Core Class that best fits you. Then choose from our Breakout Sessions on the day before or after your Core Class. That way you can grab some extra info from an instructor you didn’t get to work with yet, or dive deeper on a topic that wasn’t covered as much as you would like in your Core Class.

Quick Glimpse of Day One:

Each Core Class is teaching towards the creation of the wedding shoot the next day. For example, our floral classes will not only be teaching how to make a bridal bouquet but also how to receive a mood board and budget from a wedding planner and how to work within it + create the pieces needed for the wedding + how to install them at the selected venue. Cake and calligraphy classes will be doing the same, and the end result will be styled shoots like no others! You will be learning about and/or meeting your couple to be sure that what you create is in line with their vision. Your instructors will be leading you through all the questions, ideas, decisions and you will PLAN, DESIGN and EXECUTE a full styled wedding shoot that approximately 50 wedding photographers and videographers will shoot. Talk about a portfolio building experience – not to mention all the real wedding, styled shoot, business, and marketing learning going on!

Quick Glimpse of Day Two:

It’s Styled Shoot Day! We want to get ALL vendors interacting, creating and learning from each other. Planners and Stylists will be setting up with Florists at a real venue. Attendees will walk away from each class with new knowledge about their genre and real wedding experience from the first inquiry to the installation at the event. Cakes will be delivered per the timeline of a typical wedding day. There will be 10 models, wearing 10 different dresses and featured in different locations. Why? To ensure you get unique portfolio pieces that don’t all look the same once released in print. IN PRINT! That’s right, EVERYTHING happening during Wedventure Workshop Week will be featured in a full issue dedicated to the amazingness that is happening this week! And every attendee has the opportunity to be in it!

All Classes will look and flow a bit different so be sure to check out your particular genre to learn more. Specialized two-day workshops (our core classes) available: Photography Courses / Planning and Styling Courses / Floral Design Courses / Cake Artistry Courses / Calligraphy and Signage and Flatlay Courses / Videography Courses.

WHO is it For:

YOU! Seriously, YOU! Anyone wanting to build their wedding portfolio, looking to learn real wedding experience, or just need some new inspiration, want to meet fellow vendors, want to pick the brains of those who have walked down this path before, pick up tips on how to be better in your industry, learn some marketing or talk about social media and more! We can all learn something from working together and supporting each other and we hope you all can come! To learn more about our two-day core classes offered, visit one of these pages: Photography Courses / Planning and Styling Courses / Floral Design Courses / Cake Artistry Courses / Calligraphy and Signage and Flatlay Courses / Videography Courses
