Boutonnières are not my favorite to make simply because there always seems to be a large number of them to produce and monotony is not my strength. I get bored after the second one. I do, however, adore how they look when they are all completed, when we line them up on a beautiful backdrop and photograph them.Read More
Have you ever thought any of these things:
“There are new wedding planners/floral designers popping up in my town everyday.”
“It seems to be the new trend in my area to become a wedding planner.”
“There are so many people in my area doing higher budget weddings and I don’t know what they have that I don’t have.”

This week was hard. It was really hard. It was one of those weeks where nothing went right, no matter how much I tried.

It really is amazing what can be accomplished with a team of people. The past two weeks have been full of meetings. I'm working with six different people from all over on one main project.

Have you ever been really, really sick? And in those dark moments when you’ve got your head in a bucket, or a pile of tissues the size of Mt. Everest beside you, or you’re counting the number of days you’ve been taking cough medicine just to make sure you haven’t surpassed the legal limit, you think to yourself…
“I will never take another healthy day for granted. I will never stop rejoicing when I wake up and don’t need to vomit, or sneeze, or cough, or run to the bathroom. Every day is a gift! If I ever feel normal again, I won’t waste another second!”
Inevitably, after a few weeks of healthy days, we totally forget that feeling.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.
