Burlap to Lace is a boutique Tampa wedding planning company. The company grew out of a love and passion for weddings that only a wedding nut could understand. Meet, Lindsay Jimison.
Lindsay Jimison“I am a full time, professional wedding planner and the founder of Burlap to Lace, Weddings by Lindsay J. We are a Tampa, Florida based company and I have been planning weddings throughout Florida for over 10 years. My experience and the relationships I have built in the wedding industry will help with the planning of your wedding. Whether small and intimate or large and over the top, any wedding is possible for Burlap to Lace.
Planning a wedding can be stressful. We are here to help you with the stress and communicate your wants and desires for your big day. You don’t have to anticipate bumps along the way in your planning, that’s our job. We give you the comfort of knowing your wedding day will be just what you want and we will handle all the details.
My passion for weddings began when I was seven years old. At that age I had already planned my entire wedding. I attended the University of South Florida and graduated in 2007 with a degree in mass communications. I have worked for Manhattan Hairstyling Academy and A La Carte Event Pavilion in the Tampa area where I have planned corporate events, social events and weddings. Nothing compares to the excitement of a wedding.
When I am not working, you will find me reading books or playing in the park with the three men in my life… my two little boys and my loving husband. Life is good and I am truly blessed. Making memories with the ones you love is what makes life so special. I look forward to the opportunity to create an unforgettable event for you!” -Lindsay J.
I am truly blessed to be able to plan weddings. I love seeing how excited couples are on their special day. Executing the perfect wedding day, or wedding weekend, is all in the organization, details, and logistics. I am a here to take on the execution of any event, while consulting on the style and design specific to each couple I am working with. I enjoy helping each couple by successfully managing their unique expectations and budget. Wedding planning can be very stressful for couples, but I am here to take that stress away and help them enjoy the process.
I am a Tampa Bay native and have lived here all of my life. Creating beautiful weddings and events is a passion of mine that brings me so much joy. I am a mom, wife, wedding planner, creative soul, coffee addict, photographer, Disney enthusiast, chef, lover of life, a child of God and a truly southern girl.
As a former advertising executive, I have extensive corporate event planning experience. I have worked on events for Cadillac, McDonald’s, Tire Kingdom, and VISIT FLORIDA (just to name a few). After becoming a wife and mom, I began volunteering as a wedding planning assistant. I loved it so much that I jumped into the business and it became my natural career option. This choice has not only given me the opportunity to plan beautiful weddings and events, but has also allowed me to spend more time with my family while taking on an occupation.
I believe that every wedding day should truly be a reflection of new couples becoming one. In my opinion, a wedding should not be overly produced. It should feel more like an intimate dinner party with close family and friends.
I truly love and have always been drawn to weddings & events! I have over 14 years of event experience starting with corporate events then ranging from art festivals to regattas to pet expos to weddings and beyond! You name it, I've probably planned it! I genuinely love being a part of a couple's big day and helping out however I can! 6 years ago, I had a beautiful destination wedding and was married to my husband J.T. on the beach at sunset. I have 2 adorable daughters: Kaia age 3 and Cali age 5.
