8-31-14 Alex and Jon- San Diego Wedding Flowers

Beautiful Blooms by Jen does weddings in San Diego?!  We sure do!

How and why, you ask?

It all began when my dad and Alex, the bride’s dad were best friends from Illinois. Alex’s dad got a job in Toledo and helped my dad get one here. Alex’s family moved on to San Diego and we have been here every since!

When I was chosen for an internship at a flower shop anywhere I wanted, during college, the Fiorina’s were kind enough to open their home for me with a place to stay. Little did we know that I would become a part of the family and Alex was the sister I never had!

When Alex and Jon got engaged,  I knew that I definitely wanted to help with the flowers. Little did I know that she was going to ask me to be a bridesmaid, and I was going to be pregnant!  I was hesitant, but they knew I could handle it and I’m so glad they talked me into it! The Fiorina’s found me an awesome assistant, Janella, and Kyle and I went out to San Diego to plan in July. It all came together beautifully.

First, I had to make sure that everything was perfect for my brides in Toledo before we left. Everything came in beautiful and my employees were set to cover our 5 weddings in Toledo. Kyle and I flew out the Friday morning of the wedding. Janella had already processed all of the flowers for me and I began work in Alex and Jon’s garage.

It was pretty toasty in there and once we checked into our hotel room, we saw there would be plenty of room to move things to our hotel. The flowers would be much happier there. Since the wedding was on Sunday, we were able to work all day on Saturday in the hotel in the air conditioning.

Then when we went to the rehearsal on Saturday night, we brought all of the flowers with us to the venue. We unloaded and had a wonderful rehearsal!
