What our students say...

Kelsey Reiersen
Stone & Co. Events

Enrolling as a student with the Wedding Academy was an essential part of starting my career as a wedding planner and stylist. My course was great and provided in-depth knowledge for planning and designing a variety of events and occasions.

Not only did I graduate from the Academy feeling confident in my ability to coordinate and design special events but I learned a lot about running a business too.
