My Planning Client Contract

How to use this contract:

This is our exact planning client contract for 2018. I ask myself after every wedding we do, “What did I like and what didn’t I like?” For example, you can now see that we have a section in our contract with the heading “vendor communication.” We added this section so that we could be the sole people to talk to our client’s vendors

Everything Changed When I Shifted My Focus

I remember when I first started my business and all these big dreams I had of my work being featured. My focus was more on the potential press than it was on the work.

How I Add a Month to My Year

Before I had Stella, when it was just Brian and me, I would wake up at 5 am every day. I’m one of those rare introverted extroverts: when I’m on, I’m totally on, but I need time to myself to re-energize and recharge. I loved having time all to myself, before Brian was up, to prepare for my day.

Then I had Stella. After being up all night with a baby, the last thing I wanted to do was wake up at 5 am. Shortly after, I had the boys. Same thing. Somehow, five years have passed since I regularly woke up at 5 am. And I miss it.

Let’s say the average person wakes up at 7am everyday.

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.
