It's the end of summer and the end of wedding season. You are burned out, in need of creative rejuvenation, and to find your people.
We got you.
Our Radical Wed Retreat is geared towards creatives and wedding professionals who seek to or are conquering the social justice space and integrating parts of that into their businesses. We just want to meet you and hang out with you for a few days.
Spend 3 nights, 4 days in Austin Texas with us.
Rest & Relax
We're shacking up in a colorful villa with lots of areas to get cozy, mingle, sit outside, and relax. We’ll be able to provide catered meals from Heart of Celebration, a private pool, and make sure you have a few rejuvenating activities to participate in. Enjoy spa night, a couple of speakers, a dance party, and overall a weekend you’ll be looking forward to this year.
We're also hosting another styled shoot in Austin, TX.
Hone your styling skills, floral skills, photography, etc. and leave with some refreshing content to take home with you.
Food as a Form of Remembrance
We are so excited to have Mary-Beth from Heart of Celebration with us! Mary Beth will “make every single meal at the retreat an act of resistance, resilience, and celebration of the survivorship of Latin America. At every meal, we'll honor the country and culture's who's food we're about to partake in. We'll take space, silence, and palo santo to honor the deaths of enslaved and colonized people throughout Latin America, and confront the messy histories that have led to their rebuilding today.” See more of her work and find inspiration for your own meals at Heart of Celebration.
