Mentorship From a Pro Who’s

Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the industry and all things DMV weddings, she is such a giving person who only wants to see you succeed in your business.

Meet Your Mentor

Courtney-Rose Dantus here — I’m a wedding planner and designer who throws modern, multicultural fêtes for Washington, D.C. area couples.

But before I found my voice as a wedding planner, I was probably very similar to you: a natural planner and organization freak with excellent taste, a fierce sense of independence, and a lot of uncertainty about this whole entrepreneurship game. I’ve spent the last decade paving my own way to a thriving wedding planning business, but damn if I would have appreciated some quality advice along the way. And that’s why I’m here now — to offer you support from an experienced planner who has been there, gets it, and isn’t shy with her secrets.  

Have a Question?

How long are MENTORING sessions?


Each mentoring session is 90 minutes (1.5 hours) and held via video call.


How can I best prepare for a MENTORING session?


We’ll send you a quick questionnaire before the session to help you collect your thoughts. In general, though, this time is yours, so please come prepared if you’d like to maximize the full 90 minutes together.


Do you offer a discount for MENTORING bundles?


Absolutely! Those who purchase a bundle of three sessions will get their fourth session free.


Do I need to live in the DMV area to work with you?


No, we offer mentoring virtually via video call. That means we can help wedding planners everywhere, whether you live in the D.C. area or not. 


What if I want to discuss a topic you didn’t list?


That’s not a problem, but please do let us know what topic you’d like to discuss before the call so we can prepare our thoughts.


Is it possible to shadow you on a wedding day?


We offer select opportunities to mentoring clients that have completed at least three mentoring sessions, to work with our team on a wedding day. This is a custom experience, so please inquire for more details.
