FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
are you an event planner or floral designer?
Both! Planner first, floral designer second. I’ve done florals for nearly 200 brides as well as planned and executed many big and small weddings over the past seven years. I love the floral aspect (who wouldn’t!!) because I view them as the anchor to the design of an event, although it’s just one small aspect in the grand scheme. Along with choosing your design details – paper, linens, floor layout…etc, I am the one who will be coordinating vendors, securing hotels, writing your timeline…etc. With the help of the rest of my team members, the wedding day will no doubt run smoothly!
For some brides, I do a l a cart florals only. To inquire about how this works, message me through the form below!
how would you describe your style?
My style leans romantic, organic/free flowing, timeless and effortless. I specialize in designing and executing comfortable, personality driven luxury events. I am inspired by unique spaces and work to enhance the parameters we are given. I love texture and am passionate about composition. I am inspired by my client’s style and story, so I believe every event is truly unique.
at what point in the planning process should I get in touch with you?
For full planning and design, sually about 9-15 months before your wedding. With floral only brides, we typically start working together about 6 months out, once most of their vendors are hired and many decisions have been made. I love being involved at the very beginning of the process, if possible, because I see flowers as the anchor to the design of the event and they play a huge role in the over all style and look.
do you travel?
Traveling to new cities and venues is inspiring and invigorating! If the destination is within 70 miles, I will drive and request fuel reimbursement plus a $200 travel fee. If the location is further than 70 miles, I request lodging, an air conditioned prep room, rental car, fuel reimbursement and a travel fee starting at $200. Inquire for more information.
To keep a personal relationship with each one of my brides, I typically only take on a maximum of 10 weddings per year. Please inquire about your date below or shoot me an email at jaclyn [at] jaclynjourney.com for more information about my services.
