WELCOME TO
BEHIND THE VEIL 
ST. LOUIS

A Floral and Event Design Workshop to help you

EXECUTE

and unleash a greater Entrepreneur.

Presented by Atosha Barboza-Bennett
Founder & CEO of Behind the Veil Academy

I founded Behind The Veil Academy (BTV)  in 2015 after struggling with the business side of the wedding and design business for many years. Yes, I have designed events for celebrities and traveled all over the world doing what I love.  And was booked every weekend. BUT GUESS WHAT? I was tired and broke. And I know that I'm not alone! My husband told me something had to change.  And it did.  I decided I was going to take my 'business" seriously and stop treating it like a glorified hobby. 

I started Behind the Veil to share my industry knowledge and uplift fellow event designers. Get ready, it's time to EXECUTE!
