Meet Your Teacher

Wendy Kay

Named a Top Wedding Planner and Event Designer by Martha Stewart Weddings and Best Wedding Planner in America by BRIDES, Wendy really is an "Idea Machine." Whether cozy interiors, artful window displays, or wizardly worlds, Wendy uses her love of set design as inspiration to translate the stories of her clients through unexpected details.

Thriving at creating something from nothing, Wendy welcomes the creative challenge and complex logistics required to (literally) build an event from the ground up. From design conception to collaborating with the creative team and directing the day-of execution, Wendy respects each stage of the wedding planning process, considering the journey just as important as the destination.

Wendy's clients connect to her calm demeanor, sharp wit, and surprising knowledge of pop culture. A diplomatic straight shooter, she guides her clients through potentially sticky situations with transparency, tact, and most importantly—humor.

Today, after 12 years of owning her own planning and design business, much of Wendy's time is focused on educating other vendors on best business practices to transform their own businesses through honesty and "tough love" with Educate | Empower | Encourage.

What Students Are Saying

Sarah Schrieber, BRIDES
“When I think about this industry's power duos, Charla and Jennefer are one of the first pairs to come to mind. Infectious, understanding, and genius, these two are masters of their craft, something I have seen time and time again on the editorial side of the business. Their brainchild, Develope Academy, is a culmination of that shared expertise—it's a trove of advice, insight, and creativity. What a privilege it is, to learn from these women, these beautiful, vibrant manipulators of light, color, and motion!”
Megan Kay
“I’ve invested in a lot of education, and a lot of times, content is repeated or watered down because people don’t want to give away their secrets. But Jenn & Charla don’t do that. I’m always learning so much new information from them! They don’t want to hold anything back; they want to engage, and they want to answer all of your questions.”
Sarah Reeves
"I actually just found Develope Academy and dove head-first into a few Glowups. I've learned more in the last few weeks than I have over the last 10+ years I've been shooting! I feel like I'm bffs with Charla & Jenn now, even though it's a one-sided relationship, haha! Anyways, thank you for creating real and raw education that I am glad to be a part of, because I know I will get something out of it every single time, along with several laughs!"
