“My life and business have done a 180 since getting connected with others in the C@H Facebook group and through Round 8. I really honestly don’t know how I did this business thing before getting connected with so many amazing women.

Abigail, Round 8

next



“At C@H, I was able to hear from mentors and industry leaders who I've followed on social media and admired for years.” 

Amber, Round 8

next


“The depth of knowledge the panelists & speakers bring is priceless. From beginning to end we were taught, nurtured & encouraged to do what our hearts are passionate about!”

Jamie & Stacey, Round 6  

next


“C@H is way more than just a conference to me: it’s a community that I keep coming back to over and over again because it feels like a creative home.

Caitlin, Round 4 & Round 7

next

After my first round I was given the confidence to grow my business enough to quit my full time job and shoot weddings full time. After my second round, I had a better foundation under my feet for a business that was growing faster than I was prepared for. After my third round, I learned that it was possible to peak, but to continue pushing to find new ways to challenge myself!”

Loren, round 2, Round 5, and round 7

stop. We're blushing!

IS THIS SPECIFIC TO THE WEDDING INDUSTRY?

Being a creative at heart is more than just wedding timelines and off-camera flash.Over the years we’ve welcomed dozens of women who call themselves “creative” and don’t work in the wedding industry! Our content is geared toward business growth as a whole, regardless of who you serve + what you do!! Take a look at our Breakout Session topics to see more about all you’ll be learning! And, in case you’d like a non-wedding industry opinion, we asked this very question to an alum who isn’t in the wedding industry:

"Attending C@H was one of the best decisions I made for my business in 2016. All of the speakers had so much wisdom to share. After the conference, I was able to take it and apply it directly to my business. I also connected with some amazing creatives from the wedding industry and beyond and I'm still in touch with many of them today. Even if you aren't in the wedding industry, I highly recommend attending C@H!" - Katie Williamsen, Web & Social Media Strategist 

I AM A PART OF A HUSBAND/WIFE TEAM; CAN MY HUSBAND ATTEND?

Absolutely! We have had quite a few husband & wife teams attend. While the conference is geared toward women, we know that attending with your spouse is important! As long as he’s okay with being in the minority, and seeing quite a bit of pink (and tears), he’s more than welcome.

We offer a discounted ticket bundle for business partners; please email us for more details on that! info@creativeatheartconference.com

IS THERE A DISCOUNTED RATE FOR BUSINESS PARTNERS / employees?

There is!

If you and your business partner / employee would like to attend, please email us to learn more about our discounted bundle! 
info@creativeatheartconference.com

WHAT IF I’VE BEEN IN BUSINESS LESS THAN A YEAR (OR IT’S NOT EVEN A BUSINESS YET?)?

This is a new dream for you and you’re likely thinking: “What if I can’t do it? What if I’m not good enough, brave enough, talented enough?” Here you’ll get the confidence you crave to kick that feeling to the curb; you’ll also get the tools you need to create a sustainable, profitable business. Because of Creative at Heart, our alumni have launched their business, left their full-time job and started their own communities in their area! Whether you’ve been in business 1 week or 5 years… you are welcome here!

WHAT IF I’VE BEEN IN BUSINESS 5+ YEARS? IS THE CONTENT CHALLENGING ENOUGH FOR ME?

You’ve been around the block a few times. You’ve been to a few conferences (and maybe you’ve even been to C@H!).

You know the late nights it takes to build a sustainable business, struggle with workaholic tendencies & spend way too much time answering emails. Creative at Heart is for you, too.

Here you’ll be surrounded by women who think like you - women who struggle to close their laptop when their spouse gets home and ask themselves “what’s next for my biz” all the time.

You’ll be surrounded by women ready & willing to take their dream to the next level - whatever level that might be. You’ll hear about the systems needed for continuing growth, the accountability required to get it done & the freeing feeling of saying “Woah! You too?! I thought I was the only one!”

when will registration open?

Registration will open March 1 at 8pm ET at our early bird rate.

Due to COVID precautions at our venue, there are only 60 in person attendee tickets currently available. If we can open up more seats closer to Round 10, we will! 

How should I prep for the virtual conference?

Our goal is to make it feel like you're at WinMock with us... from the comforts of your home! 

We recommend blocking off the conference dates just like you're in person so you can focus on content sessions & connection sessions. We'll share ALL the tech how-to's ahead of time so you can effortlessly watch the live content & join in on live panel time. You'll also get to connect with ALL attendees and educators (in person and virtual) in the Round 10 Facebook group prior to July, and get a snail mail package from our heart to yours! ;) 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING in july?

Just yourself! We’ll take care of the rest - we promise!

(We do suggest you bring comfy PJ’s for the Late Night Treat, and your favorite on-brand outfit for headshots! Anything else in that overstuffed suitcase is up to you!)

what happens if I need to cancel?

If you find you won’t be able to attend, please email Matt - support@creativeatheartconference.com. We’ll miss seeing you but understand that things come up!

Whether your ticket was paid in full or split into payments, there is a $249 nonrefundable fee for all cancellations. For cancellations made within 60 days of the conference, 50% of all monies paid will be refunded (less the nonrefundable fee). For cancellations made within 30 days of the conference, all monies paid are nonrefundable. Any eligible refunds will be processed within 10 business days.

If you wish to transfer your ticket, you are responsible for finding a replacement. Once you find someone to purchase your ticket, email Matt and he will send them a payment link. (No monies should be exchanged between you and the replacement. We will handle sending them a payment link and refunding you.) Once they have completed the purchase, any payments eligible for a refund will be refunded to you. No refunds will be given until the replacement ticket has been purchased. The cancellation fee of $249 will still apply to transferred tickets. Transfers are not eligible within 14 days of the conference.

Next

"The depth of knowledge and insight the panelists and speakers bring is priceless. From beginning to end, we were taught, nurtured and encouraged to do what our hearts are passionate about. Upon leaving, we were more than equipped to be sent out and continue to build our dreams."

- Jamie & Stacey Greene

I had the courage to quit my teaching job and pursue my photography full-time!!! 

- Loren Jackson

Because of C@H, I made my first profit last year and this year is looking to be a game changer for me.

- Stefani Lefler

Because of Creative at Heart I decided to be brave. I decided to take a risk and attend a conference before I had even officially started by business. Because of C@H I believed in myself to start my business as soon as I got home from the conference. And because of C@H I now get to be a stay at home mom and work on continuing to grow my business every day!

- Lindsay Johnson

Because of C@H I gained the confidence to take a look at my business with fresh eyes, dive into why I was passionate about it, and move forward with re-branding my business (with a designer I met at C@H!) and truly pulling out the personality of it to attract my ideal clients!

- Bethanne Arthur

Because of C@H I quit my 9-5, became a self-employed stay-at-home mom with my own business, and even felt the courage to start my very own community & event in my city of Portland. I've never felt more encouraged or like I had a family that truly cared about me and my success!

-Devan McCabe

Because of C@H, I learned that the essence of a true leader is rooted in servanthood, and the desire to encourage, uplift, and love those around you.

- Adrienne Rolon

what are you waiting for?

with two options (in person or virtual) 

Round 10 is the 2021 event for you. Encourage your dreams + equip your business with creatives just like you by your side. 

i can't wait!
