5 Steps to Attracting High-End Wedding Clients with André Brown

From the moment we start our businesses, many of us aspire to cater to an upper echelon of wedding clientele, each for our own reasons. Perhaps you are enamored with the beautiful decor, or you’d like to boast about the people you’ve worked with—but I think we can all agree that we want to make the big bucks! Whether you are in year one or year five of your business, finding these clients can be a mystery. I’m sharing my five keys to attracting, booking, and best serving your High-End Clients.
