If you are a wedding planner or a floral designer and you aren't yet on my newsletter list, here's what I want you to know: I don't just send stuff out for the heck of it. I don't look at it as a "list". I know behind every email address is a real person. I know you are working your tail off trying to grow your business while simultaneously struggling to have any kind of personal life. I know behind that email address is a wife at home in her bed with her lap top ignoring her spouse because she needs to get "just a little more work done".Read More
This is going to be a long answer. It will most likely be a very unpopular answer and many of you will completely disagree with me, but here goes:

I finally graduated with a communication degree because after five years I went to the school counselor and said, “What major will get me out of here the fastest?” And communication was the answer.

I LOVE getting feedback from all of you on what you’re wanting to learn. The other day, I popped a question sticker in my instagram stories and was so thankful for all the responses I got. There were so many, that I couldn’t get to them all! There were also some questions that I wanted to give a little more time to than just a quick story response.

In February, I got to take part in the Fleursociety Online Summit. I’m so thankful for any chance to share my story! As I often say, I made so many mistakes early on in my business journey.

In the online Summit, I shared my story and talked about how systems and efficiency can lead to business growth.Read More
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.
