I often hear women describe their final weeks as uncomfortable, feeling large, tired, and just bleh. While I know that to be true (thatโ€™s how I felt ๐Ÿ™ƒ), I also know that with a little pampering, you can also feel more like the glowing, beautiful, expecting YOU!

Experience this 1.7-mile out-and-back trail near Bluemont, Virginia. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 47 min to complete. This is a very popular area for birding, hiking, and running. This is the best time of the year to visit the trail.

Dogs are welcome.

A short easy hike with a beautiful overlook to the west, this trail climbs a gentle 280ft of elevation along the Appalachian Trail to the Bear's Den Overlook.

Everyone is welcome to join at Bear Chase Brewery after the hike!

Close that laptop and step away from the computer for an evening of IRL professional networking!

Join us on Wednesday, November 2nd for a social mixer + business networking event for female professionals.
This event is a great opportunity to connect with other local businesses and have fun while expanding your professional network.

ยป Buy one ticket, and get the 2nd for free!
This is a great reason to invite another female business owner because:
- you've connected with virtually and would love to finally meet in real life
- you want to see them again
- you hate going to these things alone

Can't find anyone to bring with you? No problem - come anyway! It won't be awkward or uncomfortable - we promise!

20 Female Founders.
6 months.

Applications for your chance to be a student in the โ€˜23 Class open Monday, October 25.

THIS is the program youโ€™ve been waiting for.

Think Iโ€™m full of s**t?

Ok, I get it! Your feed is prob nothing but โ€œexperts/educators/coachesโ€ jamming courses down your throat promising x,y,z for โ€œjust a few small payments ofโ€ (anything more than free is too much money.)

Iโ€™ve wasted a s**t ton of money on just thatโ€ฆ complete crap.

Fun fact - one time, I actually ended up leading the cohort I โ€œwas lucky to get intoโ€ because the program leader was umโ€ฆ idk, not good.

Iโ€™ve joined cohorts and at the end, thereโ€™s like 3 of us left bc - another fun factโ€ฆ 85% of women drop or quit a business education program because they donโ€™t get anything out of it. Either the content doesnโ€™t sucks or confusing, the educators donโ€™t give a f**k about you, or you just lose motivation.

Soโ€ฆ with the help of my favorite industry experts and 15 brave women, I built my own program and the Beta was crazy successful. I designed the program to fix all things wrong with business education - at a tuition rate that makes it possible for all woman to afford.

Money should never be an issue for women when it comes to access to quality business education, support and launching a successful business.

If you still think Iโ€™m full of s**t, just ask .cielo.cookies

Another great networking event! โœ…โ 
โ 
We had so much fun watching these amazing women connect โ€“ personally and professionally! โ 
โ 
Here at AWL Creative, we're done with boring, stuffy networking events where you wander around with a drink hoping someone talks to you. โ 
โ 
We're tired of listening to one person try to sell you on something for 30 minutes, and going home with a purse full of business cards you'll never use. โ 
โ 
That's why we focus on fun! Imagine networking while tubing down a river. Or going to a DIY workshop. Now THAT'S networking we can get behind. โ

Our Story

A Wedding Loft came from the dream of the existence of a space that offered a safe, supportive environment for female small business owners, creatives, and wedding professionals to learn, create, and grow. The founder realized when she was starting out in her own business ambitions that the significant resources that were readily available in other industries were significantly lacking in the wedding industry. She quickly discovered that her own struggles finding the resources, education, and local community in the wedding industry were felt among so many others. Through that realization, A Wedding Loft was born. By identifying the needs in the industry, the founder was able to build upon them and create a unique business just as unique as the space it resides in.

From its humble beginnings over ten years ago, A Wedding Loft has grown into a thriving membership-based, wedding-focused community of like-minded professionals and is a vital part of the culture of downtown Leesburg, VA. It is a place where professionals in the wedding industry can come daily and perform their tasks, hold client meetings, have access to vital educational resources, and build a community of supportive, encouraging, and like-minded industry partners.

We hope that when you walk through the doors of our unique space, you will see and feel the same vision we have: to be a home for Loudoun County Wedding professionals and female creatives to thrive and grow their businesses in a supportive and welcoming environment.
