This spring I went on a mastermind retreat in Austin, Texas. It was a mastermind with other wedding planners brought together through Refine for Wedding Planners. After meeting monthly over zoom for a year and a half, we finally got to meet in person!

I had actually met Darcy last fall when she assisted me with a wedding, but I met Becky and Amanda for the first time in person on this trip. It was like we had already known each other forever! All of our personalities jived so well together. We had a wonderful few days of work sessions, the best food, and amazing drinks.

We also took some time to get new headshots and group photos while we we were together. I love a good photoshoot and our Airbnb was the perfect setting! Darcy’s dear friend and incredible photographer Hailey of Hailey Merlo Media captured us perfectly!

Here is an itinerary of how our week looked:


Work session, spend the afternoon exploring South Congress , ciders at Austin Eastciders, and Maudie’s for dinner


Work session at Easy Tiger, photoshoot, Dinner at Qi, bar hop on West 6th


Meet Amber from Refine for brunch at Josephine House, tour Canyonwood Ridge where Amanda works, work session at Thyme and Dough, Night out at First Thursday at South Congress Hotel then bar hop on Rainey Street


Head home!

We had the best week full of fun and leveling up our businesses on this mastermind retreat. Oftentimes we just work in our businesses, but this week was really an opportunity to work ON our businesses to be the best we can be for our clients. I love continually learning and this incredible group of women is always helping me do that!
