It may have taken five months to coordinate schedules but Ty and Liz from Twirl Talk Podcast (and Twirl Boutique) finally made it to the studio and we got to record my episode of Twirl Talk! Ty opened Twirl around the same time I started my business, so it was fun to reminisce and see how we’ve grown together.
I talk a lot about inspiration (surprised?) and how important it is to design your wedding around things that you love and value. As I’ve said so many times, weddings are so special because they are a true blending of you, your significant other, and your families. No wedding should be the same because no two people are the same. It’s a beautiful thing to create your own traditions and plan your own experience for your guests. This is something we honor and respect when designing and planning events for our couples – you should feel safe in being yourself and trust that we will represent you and show/tell your guests your beautiful story.
At Journey + Jacobs we feel all the same things are true. Your home should be filled with the things you love. Why not surround yourself with things you feel connected to? The more fluff you throw in just because you think you are supposed to doesn’t make anything more beautiful, peaceful, or impactful. It’s just fake fluff. This applies to weddings too – a centerpiece is meaningless if you don’t care to have a centerpiece on the table – you can spend that money on a massive entry way arrangement FULL of the blooms you love and instantly show your guests what is important to you. Or, if you don’t like flowers, don’t have flowers. Spend that money on a spa day for you and your bridal party instead or put it towards your honeymoon, or hire a nicer caterer. Think freely and and choose what you love. Life is about relationships and experiences. Figure out what you value and respectfully design around that.
