The Art of Gathering Digital Course — Wedding Edition 


Priya's expanded her best-selling course on how to gather better with wedding-specific bonus videos, exercises, and resources to help you plan your wedding with meaning, intentionality, and purpose.

Your wedding is one of the most important gatherings you'll ever plan together. Whether you're reimagining old traditions, creating new rituals, or navigating conflicting opinions on the guest list, the Art of Gathering Wedding Edition will be your helpful guide and companion through the process.

Let's Get Planning!

The Art of Gathering Wedding Edition helps you go beyond your color scheme and floral arrangements (of course those can be important, too!) and focus on what makes your wedding day buzz with energy and meaning.


What is the Art of Gathering?

How we gather shapes the world we want to live in. Weddings are a beautiful example of this, and an opportunity for us to learn about how to gather better, more intentionally, and more meaningfully.


Weddings are a high-stakes gathering moments that often bring together the various communities important to two different people. Yet, much of wedding planning is spent on autopilot repeating forms and rituals without pausing to ask "why" or "doesn't this really represent who we are".

The Art of Gathering is a framework. It's a set of practical lessons, inspiring ideas, and real-world applications to help you transform the way you plan a wedding celebration that reflects what you really want and need — while helping you navigate moments of tension and conflict with care.

It’s the start of a lifelong practice that instills in you a curiosity, willingness, and a generosity of spirit to ask: How might I do this differently? — for wedding planning and future gatherings to come.

I'm Ready to Get Started

Step One: 

Choose your wedding event.

This course walks you through planning a wedding event  that's important to you and how you engage your community. Weddings are many gatherings in one — ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions, showers, weekend getaways, and more. Decide which wedding event or events you want to use as your focus for the course.

Step Two: 

Choose your wedding planning team.

Your wedding is one of the most important gatherings you'll ever plan. We highly recommend you take this with your partner since it's a celebration that represents you both. Whomever you choose to include in your wedding planning support team, one digital course registration includes three log-ins so you can learn, scheme, and have some fun together. 


Step Three: 

Establish a weekly learning schedule.

While we recommend focusing on a lesson per week, the course is designed for flexibility and busy wedding planning schedules. Each lesson includes digestible pre-recorded videos, a digital and printable handbook for notetaking and planning, case studies to inspire, and supporting resources to explore. Choose a regular day and time that works for you and your planning crew to dedicate to the lesson content.

Your registration also grants you access to Priya's quarterly office hours to dive into pertinent issues faced in the Artful Gathering Course community.


Step Four: 

Continue to practice.

Gathering is a practice to nurture and refresh. Return to the core material as often as necessary. It’s an invaluable reference as you continue to shape new and creative ways of spending time with your people beyond your wedding day.
