hello there.

For anyone who's spent time in the event industry, we've all experienced the highs and lows of what this elaborate, yet ever evolving market has to offer. Every season is filled with new challenges, exciting accomplishments and moments of beauty, leaving us invigorated to carry on, while simultaneously striving for rest, re-envisioning and growth. 

With over 30 combined years of experience, the mission Maria, Amanda & Kaleb have set off to create is a gathering of like minded, wedding industry creatives, of multiple backgrounds, longing to discover new inspiration, grow in their passions and take time for themselves to remember why they began working in the ever changing world of weddings.


Taking place in the serene beauty of Santa Barbara wine country, attendees will have the opportunity to learn, relax and grow, while taking part in a 3 day retreat, filled with conversations on business development & growth, hands on styled shoots where photography students will be shooting the elaborate creations & installations of floral design students. Each student will receive a one on one meeting with Maria, Amanda or Kaleb to look at your current portfolios and discuss specific techniques for growth, improvement and encouragement. Le Collectif will take place April 30th-May 2nd.
