During a trip to Paris, you can’t help but get swept away by the rich romance of the city. For this editorial, we found our inspiration in the ever-present vibe of desire that surrounded us. The backdrop of the city created its own sense of imagination with lavish structures possessing both traditional and innovative features, so we sought to capture images that expressed an equally classical and contemporary beauty. We chose to let this shoot bring the bride into focus and explore all the places her mind would be on her wedding day. In the black and white images, we get a sense of mystique and longing giving way to complete vulnerability. Raw, understated images portray the weight of these moments of solitude before the dress, before the guests, before the vows.The dress is somewhat of an embodiment of Paris itself – simple, romantic, yet unique and alluring. Her hair is swept into an à propos chignon, allowing her back to be exposed. Because we wanted the floral to complement and not distract from this beguiling dress, creams, peaches, and rose-colored blooms from a local nursery arranged with bright greenery parallel the monochromatic coloring of the architecture and the sprawling ivy seen throughout this old, enchanting city.

Welcome to the blog

Hi! I'm Jessica Zimmerman, top wedding planner and floral designer.

Born and raised in Arkansas, I’m a proud wife and mama to a 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old twin boys. A true believer in freedom, flexibility (and of course, incredible flowers), I’m wholly devoted to creating a life I love to live every single day–not just on the weekends. From travel to business to weddings, this blog is full of features designed to inspire other busy mamas (and businesswomen) to make a living from their passion without giving up their lives.
