Meet Our Founder, Adair Currie
Three years ago, I dreamt of a way to combine my love of education with my passion for weddings. Utilizing the skills I learned from my Masters Degree program while also planning numerous weddings every year seemed farfetched at the time. But, I knew it had to be possible. Little did I know, what I was crafting in my mind would eventually be the Academy we know it as today.
Three years later, we have hosted the Academy in Jacksonville and Orlando, educated over 75 brides, moms, and maids-of-honor, connected with talented wedding professionals, and created a truly one of a kind experience. It is my life’s mission to keep creating memorable moments and curate special surprises to spoil the attendees, all the while encouraging them to plan their wedding in a manner that is smart, deliberate, and purposeful.
Recently an Academy graduate told me that attending our workshop was amongst her top five favorite moments from her entire planning process. Hearing those words made my heart leap!
Words cannot express how glad I am that you are here today. I simply can’t wait to meet you at our next Academy!

Most importantly, we’ll be bringing fun back into the planning process, while equipping you with all the tools and knowledge you need to plan a budget-friendly (not necessarily budget friendly, it is to show you how to be smart with your budget and make educated decisions when booking your vendors and after they book their vendors how to work with those professionals in the best way with clear expectations, beautiful wedding!
