while in #30a (gulf coast of florida) this week, we were reaching out to our @airbnb owner to find out where the beach access was so we could set up chairs - important questions right? she took a while to respond and finally let us know her fiancรฉ had been killed in afghanistan and she was in DC for his memorial, apologizing for her delay in response but also letting us know her head wasn't quite in the game. we found out her fiancรฉ had been in the armed forces for 37 years, was a green beret at one point and was just about to retire but went back for one more deployment under special forces for the CIA. this was such a sad reminder for us to always remember and be thankful for our heroes who have given their all so we can enjoy our everyday freedom we can take for granted so easily. sending our love and gratitude to those who have served and those who have lost their loved ones, and honoring all of you today on Memorial Day. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

out of office is on, phone is being tossed in the suitcase and unplug mode is in full gear for the next few days. wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’™

if you've been with me here on IG for a while you may have seen this before, but it's one of my favorites. we created a flower crown for each guest at p's champagne bridal luncheon to kick off her napa valley destination wedding festivities. can't think of a more enjoyable afternoon than champagne tasting + flower crowns with your best gals surrounding you. ๐Ÿ“ท @tecpetaja, planning/design/florals @jacinfitzgerald

thanks @martha_weddings for sharing my tips (in good company) on creating the perfect wedding day timeline. want the gist? don't allow too much time for cocktail hour. sure, it's officially the kickoff to the reception and everyone is having a great time, but if you extend this timing too long your guests will start to get restless or, worse yet, stock up on the open bar before the party has even fully begun. you want everyone to have a chance to mix and mingle, grab a cocktail or two and enjoy a few bites, but like every great tasting menu at the finest restaurants, you want to give your guests just enough so they still want more (without ruining their appetite for the amazing dinner ahead). ๐Ÿ“ท @tecpetaja, planning / design / florals @jacinfitzgerald, venue #BeaulieuGarden, catering @paulaleduc

we kept the ceremony decor light for m+p's @pebblebeachresorts wedding (featured on @martha_weddings) because we didn't want to compete with that gorgeous backdrop. sometimes less is more. ๐Ÿ“ท @tanjalippert, planning / design @jacinfitzgerald

working on a design plan for a fun "today show" segment coming up in a few weeks and I've realized my non-wedding client designs always seem to gravitate towards my favorite places. channeling new england summer for this project - surprise surprise, right? happy friday! ๐Ÿ’™ (ps we planted 8 different varieties of rosa rugosa (beach roses) in our front garden and I swear it's the sweetest scent in the entire world).

throwing back to e+a's @wequassett wedding in cape cod; love seeing my clients celebrate milestones after the big day - baby b is due any time now! ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ“ท @staceyhedman, planning design florals @jacinfitzgerald

the first time we pulled around the corner and saw this view I wanted to cry. one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. ๐Ÿ’™

scenes from one of my favorite neighborhoods in rome, "monti". side note I am probably the only wedding planner/designer on earth without a blog (ditched it a few years back and swapped out with a FAQ page instead) so I'm sharing some favorite italy pics from our travels here on IG this week as we pull together the design plan for r+j's italian-inspired welcome dinner. ๐Ÿ’™

working with a client on their italian-inspired welcome dinner design plan as a nod to their shared affection for this beautiful region and can't help but get lost in all the memories we have from our own travels here. sharing a few favorite pics this week as we finalize plans for what is sure to be an enchanting evening for this sweet couple and their guests. // photo from our travels to positano - if you want the skinny on our trip check out #ti12daysinitaly for our travel itinerary and tips. ๐Ÿ’™
