DESIGN A WEDDING

Are you feeling intimidated by the word DESIGN when it comes to working with your clients and growing your business?   

Design might not call to you naturally…but you shouldn’t let that stop you from building a wedding business that pays, gets published, and is the envy of aesthetics-focused couples everywhere.

We’ve built our business on custom designs that reflect our couples’ personal style! Our wedding designs have been featured in Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Southern Living and countless other publications.

Inside this wedding design course is our step by step guide to creating a stunning, publication-ready design that feels unique and personalized to the couple. Creating a design that reflects the spirit and love the couple shares, while flowing smoothly from the save the date to the farewell is time well spent.

HI, I'M SARAH!

I’m here to share the lessons that took me from overwhelmed & overworked to a well-oiled machine with weddings from coast-to-coast.

I’m the founder and wedding educator behind Chancey Charm, a wedding planning & design firm with planners all across the US and beyond.  I’m a firm believer that your business should pay you both financially and in personal freedom and flexibility, that allows you to focus on your family and faith.

With over a decade of experience in the events industry, it’s become my life’s passion to share the tips and tools I’ve collected along the way with aspiring wedding professionals who are in the same uncertain shoes I was once shakin’ in myself.

What makes me qualified to help you build a thriving wedding business?

Celebrating ten years, Chancey Charm operates coast-to-coast and abroad with a dedicated team of experienced planners, each of whom I personally mentor. We have been published over 200 times, and have served over 750 happy couples, and have been featured in publications like Martha Stewart, Southern Living, and Business Insider. I have also had the honor of championing over 6,000 wedding professionals through the academy.

who is this for?

This course is for wedding professionals that are ready to take their client’s designs to the next level and get published to grow their brand. 

If you’ve been struggling to develop a signature design process that both you and your clients will love, you need this course!

Imagine your client walking into their wedding reception and being blown away by how everything came together just as you two imagined it would! Your vendor team completely understood and executed each detail to perfection, and their vision is even better in real life. That’s the power of including a professional design mood board and blueprint into the wedding planning process.

Design might not call to you naturally…but you shouldn’t let that stop you from building a wedding business that pays, gets published, and is the envy of aesthetics-focused couples everywhere. Design is my absolute passion! Teaching it to other women—so they can attract their ideal client, build a portfolio they are proud of, and get published—is my absolute JAM.

The number-one thing to know? It’s really about a very simple process.

People tend to think of design talent as some elusive gene you’re either born with or not. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Creating beautiful designs is about stocking your toolbox with the right tools and learning when to pull them out (hello, self-editing!). It’s rooted in process. Thank goodness for that…because who has time to reinvent the (color) wheel? With the all access membership, stunning celebrations—minus the stress—are (finally!) within reach.
