Covid-19 wreaked havoc on several industries. And if you were working in event planning of any kind, it's likely you were furloughed or let go completely. We said farewell to concerts, conventions, festivals, and weddings. Whether you agree with it or not, city and state mandated protocols to deal with the virus have prevented us from living normal life.

Personally I have known three couples who have had to postpone their weddings. John Moug from Moug & Angie Mornings postponed his wedding twice before finally eloping at the Capitol Building in the beginning of the year. He and his now wife were just one of thousands of couples who found themselves in the same situation. And for every one of those couples there was a wedding florist who lost work for the year.

Slowly but surely things are getting back to normal as the vaccine continues to roll out across the country. Restrictions on events are loosening and being lifted, leading more people resume previously canceled events and planning new ones. I'm going to a wedding at the end of May that originally was postponed for 2022. This means more people are returning to their jobs. Specifically, wedding florists are getting back in the game.

Rust + Thistle is hiring extra designers for large scale events this season, starting March 2021. So if you've been out of work for a while, this is your time to shine! Email your resume along with your portfolio to rustandthistle@gmail.com. Take a look at the Rust + Thistle Instagram for an idea of their general aesthetic.
