We’ve trained hundreds of wedding pros! Take it from one of our trainees, Laura Weatherly from Engaging Affairs:
“I was one of the attendees at your seminar in DC on gay weddings. I wanted to share a fabulous wedding that we did as a direct result of all the wonderful things I learned from you! When the brides hired us they specifically said that they liked the fact that our website used inclusive language and addressed gay weddings directly. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge. We are having so much fun working with same-sex couples now that DC has seen the light. It’s a real privilege to be involved in these joyful weddings!”
