Cultivate Retreat is an intimate learning environment for wedding professionals.

Join us this August in Highlands, North Carolina, at the Old Edwards Inn and Spa for three days of learning, sharing and cultivating with some of the best and brightest in the wedding industry.

Founded in 2012, Cultivate’s mission is to provide relevant, actionable education content for wedding professionals at a reasonable price. We combine authentic, engaging speakers with delightful meals, thoughtful design and meaningful interaction to create one of the best creative educational events anywhere.

Who is Cultivate for?

Any creative in the wedding industry!

Each speaker has been hand selected because of his or her expertise in the wedding field – all of our speakers have extensive wedding industry experience and are a wealth of resources for any wedding professional. Planners, photographers, stylists, florists and other wedding creatives will all find content about branding, marketing, sales and more that will help to cultivate a stronger wedding business.

Aside from fantastic group sessions, we’re also offering a choice of some phenomenal breakouts! You’ll be able to choose from hands on creative sessions such as centerpiece making, brush lettering, and film photography (complete with camera rentals for you to practice with) as well as practical sessions on finding your niche, using technology solutions, and balancing a “side hustle” among many others!

We hope you’ll consider joining us at our next event- we can’t wait to meet you and help you cultivate your wedding business!
