A while back I was on the beach in Puerto Vallarta with my friend Lindsey Meyer. We've been friends since we were eight years old. We talked nonstop for four days. We laughed and drank margaritas and I can't remember the last time I had that much fun with a friend. We talked a lot about sisterhood. My sister died when I was young. I adored my sister!

I’M STARTING A PODCAST!
Yupp, the Zimmerman Podcast is coming your way November 2019. Six months ago, I could have sworn I would never start a podcast. (One day, I’m going to learn to never say never. Whenever I do, I end up doing the very thing I swore I’d never do!)Read More
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 was one of those weeks where my team needed things from me and I was constantly behind schedule. I'm a person who admittedly likes to be in control and there was a lot out of my control this week.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.
