When I offered full service wedding planning services together with my floral design services every client received a tablescape design mock up as part of the planning process we went through together. Most of the time these multilayered meetings were done in person with my clients and many of the respective vendors contracted for the event, but there were a few rare cases where clients couldn't be there in person. As such, I became really good at executing virtual mock ups, which is the next best thing to the face to face version.
It seems that because of covid and still-strict social distancing policies, a lot of industries have had to make massive shifts toward virtual work environments, including those of us in the weddings and events industry. So, pandemic or not I wanted to share more about how a virtual mock up can be a tremendous value to you, your team of vendors, and of course your clients.
Scattered throughout this post are photos from a most recent virtual mock up, which was done in February here in my home, in anticipation of a NOLA wedding that was scheduled for this past March of 2020. Unfortunately, the wedding never unfolded due to what was then a very new pandemic, and was postponed until 2022 when hopefully covid has passed and it feels safe enough to proceed with original plans. Either way, a giant thank you to Samantha James Photography for coming to capture this experience so our clients in Hawaii, and the Sapphire Events planning team in NOLA could be a part of this work, too.
