We find joy in the moments: the smiles, the hugs, the giggle, handholding, and glee in the details: the perfect ribbon, the thoughtful gift, the treasured heirloom. We are in awe that we get to be a part of something so special, so huge. We love what we do. Most of all, we love getting to help our clients celebrate their love in style.

Bre Nelson

As a little girl, Bre had her own wedding planned at the age of eight. Growing up, she collected wedding magazines and inspirations as a hobby which later turned into a passion. After graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University, Bre pursued her Graduate studies from CSU Sacramento where she studied Recreation Administration with an Event Planning emphasis. From there, she started working with Joyful Weddings and Events where her love of weddings flourished. Bringing a couple's vision to life is what accelerated her devotion for event coordination. With a degree in Graphic Design, Bre has an eye for every aspect of design and conceptualization. She enjoys collaborating with her clients by incorporating color palettes, individual taste, details, and personal design touches. She finds great joy in being able to work with such wonderful couples and assist them in celebrating their love with family and friends!
