We’ll come right out and say it: Flowers are probably one of if not the most subjective wedding ‘must have’ out there. That’s not to say that entertainers, photographers, caterers (and more) are completely straightforward vendor hires — choosing and deciding among those wedding talents is totally torturous, too — they’re just a little more likely to get sussed out by overall wedding budget or what kinds of clout or press, reviews or recommendations the vendor has to their name. Florists, on the other hand, can adapt to any couples’ desires, but will also weave in an air of artistry that just confirms they understand your vibes, acknowledge your whims, and also want to pipe some extra magic into the main event. Jessica Vann-Campbell is exactly who we were thinking about when we strung those sentiments together, and if you’re looking for a flower girl who guarantees goosebumps when you see the goods on your big day, look no further.
Jessica is an adoptive mother (to the sweetest little wildflower ever, her daughter Chloe) who started a small, Seattle-based flowering business as a second career move, alongside being a mental health therapist. Her mission from the beginning has been to make couture, lush, and professional, prestige-level floral design accessible to all couples, including those on a budget. Her style is quintessentially PNW (and you know we love us some PNW style #BoiseProud) with an emphasis on local greens and blooms, and she can accommodate everything from classic and traditional storybook steps in time to modern, boho styling with a fresh edge.
While you can absolutely dreamscape your wedding day florals before meeting with Jessica, the coolest way to work with her is by coming in to collaborate and trusting her to turn it out when the time comes. This is what you get with a floral artist like Jessica.
And she does it with simple accents, embellishments, and floral focal colors that don’t bogart all of the attention (especially when it should be on you, the happy couple, always).
And she does it by continuing to grow and refine her tricks and talents as a PNW force to be reckoned with. She gets to know her congenial community of wedding professionals as much as she can and she learns all about the unique and special places you’ll be saying your ‘I dos,’ so that your flowers look as genuinely, authentically, and poetically-posed as possible on your wedding day.
And she does that with greenery that can literally lift the milestone moments in your wedding day — from your ceremony candles to your [best] dog collars — and everything in between.
"Jessica created the most gorgeous floral arrangements for our wedding that I have ever seen! I was absolutely obsessed with her work. On top of that, Jessica was extremely accommodating when we had to push our wedding back a year because of COVID and all of my design preferences changed during that year. She helped me reconfigure the color and design plan and made it all so easy. With the design I was envisioning, Jessica added an air plant into my bouquet that I can keep forever and add into my home decor so I'll always have a living piece of our wedding day greenery. For the price you pay, Jessica goes above and beyond to make the wedding day so beautiful and to make you feel so special. I would highly recommend her as your wedding florist!" ~ Katie C., Seattle
"Jessica is an AMAZING florist and I highly recommend her floral services for any wedding event. I loved working with her! She is so kind and the sweetest person. Her florals for my wedding were absolutely perfect, and her pricing is extremely fair and competitive. She is super responsive, too. All of the florals had tons of peonies, which are my favorite. I had mentioned this to her and it looks like she added a lot so I’m truly grateful! My bouquet was amazing with all white peonies, roses, and ranunculus. I wish I could have just kept them forever! Jessica is the best and you should definitely hire her!" ~ Nicole T., Kirkland
“Jessica has been so kind and flexible with us as we navigated planning a 2020 wedding with her. She really cares about you as clients and puts forth her best when creating her florals for your wedding. Everything she has done for us has been exactly what I had pictured/wanted and more! We highly recommend her for your big day or for whatever your floral needs are! Thank you so much Jessica! You are truly amazing!" ~ Briana Z., Tacoma
