Today, we’re so excited to share with you the 56th episode of our Wedding Industry Insider podcast. For this episode, Eddie had the privilege of sitting down with world-renowned event and floral designer David Beahm and his incredibly talented right hand, Christina Matteucci.
David is the founder of David Beahm Experiences, an iconic NYC event design firm responsible for producing elevated events around the world—including acclaimed weddings for Hollywood’s elite (like Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas) and coveted corporate affairs for brands like Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Perrier-Jouet (to name a few). David often takes to the stage as a motivational speaker—and he also earns praise as a part-time flower farmer at Thistle Dew Farm in PA, where his home-grown blooms go from farm to tablescape.
