MORNING SESSION - 9am to 12pm
Bouquet Demonstration: We'll start off with a blossoming bang as we jump right in with a luxurious bridal bouquet. We'll walk through the bouquet design process from mechanics to flower choices, to design techniques and finishes to catch attention and set trends.

Tablescaping: Luxury designs require more than just beautiful blooms. During this part of the workshop, you will learn about the elements that go into creating a polished, over-the-top wedding look that high-end guests will love.

Centerpieces: Luxury isn't one-dimensional! Throughout this portion of the workshop, you will learn to create centerpieces that encapsulate the luxury experience through all layers of design. Expect large-scale flowers on the tabletop, spilling over with beautiful blooms!

LUNCH - 12pm to 12:30pm
This is a great time to get to know your fellow designers! This is an awesome place to connect with people who share your passion.

AFTERNOON SESSION -12:30pm to 3:00pm

At the end of each workshop, designs will be transformed into a spectacular editorial display captured by Styled Shoots Across America as well as the Intrigue Media team. Designers will be provided access to content for use on social media and for portfolio-building purposes. This is a spectacular opportunity to experience luxury wedding design from the early stages of design through to the finished product. Designers can anticipate 100+ images from each workshop.

LUXURY SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING MASTERCLASS DETAILS
In 2023, the Intrigue Team is going on tour from coast to coast and bringing all of our social media and marketing strategies with us! Social media marketing has been the key to Intrigue's rise as a leader in the wedding floral industry, and we are NOT keeping our strategies secret. 
 
"It is NOT the people WHO ARE THE BEST at what they do that find success, it’s the people who have FINE -TUNED THEIR MARKETING that find success, because they know how to TALK BEST about what they do."

This course is built to propel your business to the next financial level by delivering transformative marketing education that focuses on social media in a way that speaks specifically to unique wedding industry experiences. We are creatives; however, what we experience in the course of running our businesses is much different than the average creative. We work with a perishable product, in a fast-paced environment, that requires organization, patience, procuring clients, and a lot more than just a bit of good luck! We need to approach our marketing with intent and strategy in order to continue to grow. The marketing world is changing faster than ever before, and staying current is vital to business security. 

This is a wedding-focused class, but we will not be playing with flowers, tablescapes, or big beautiful parties. We will be concentrating fully on our businesses. Being able to conceptualize and create amazing weddings is only a small cog in the wheel of wedding industry success. Our businesses are built on marketing! Without having the transformative techniques and most efficient strategies to power our designs, the longevity of our businesses suffer, and profits fall flat. We are in this industry because we love it, and in order to stay in business, we need to generate income that excites us!

This in-person course is a power-packed session full of the strategies Sarah has used to build her brand, as well as what she uses during the Private Social Media Mentoring Program which is priced at $15,000. During the group class, you will not have the luxury of having Sarah implement the strategies for you, but you will get all of the proven strategies, experience, and insight all compressed into one intensive day. This class is for those of you who are ready to make big changes in your business.

Who is this class for?
When curating this course, I thought of the struggles that plagued my early years as a wedding florist: money wasted advertising in the wrong places, the trial-and-error of learning how to build a marketing strategy that worked for my niche, endless hours squandered trying to figure it all out, the overwhelming anxiety that overtook me as I struggled to find the right clients. I thought back to the pain of having to figure out my marketing strategy all alone. There was no one around me that had found success and was willing to help or share. Then, I thought about today's social media-driven world and how it is even harder to cut through the clutter with so many conflicting 15-second pieces of marketing advice that seem to create more confusion than clarity. From this, I found my answer. This class is for people like me, or like the person I was in my earlier years, when I knew I had the passion, the drive, and the gumption to make a big impact in the wedding industry and create financial success for my family, but I didn't know how to get anyone to notice my business. This class is for the motivated, the driven, and those who are excited to build a strong brand through the use of social media.

I have spent my career working to ensure that no one has to struggle their way to success. I want to be the teacher, guide, and mentor for you that I wished so badly to have in my own career. You will leave this course with a weight lifted from your shoulders, inspired to take your marketing strategy to the next level, and you’ll know exactly how to do it. You are not ALONE. I am coming to visit and I am bringing my strategies with me!
