It began about 4 years ago, after my son proposed to his bride to be. Thinking back I realized the knack for detail, order and simply pulling things together to make beautiful things happen. The nurturing spirit inside of me led me to start purchasing items with "wedding" in mind. Being able to watch from the sideline the joy of my now daughter-in-love's preparation and the breathtaking outcome, I was convinced there was something special in it for me to share with others. Soon after the wedding the passion was heightened and I began to nourish and cultivate the dreams and visions. Within the years to follow, doors opened that solidified it was a gifted desire from deep within to create better out of the less. I continued to seek from within if the vision was what was to be. Doors continued to open while some were closed that I might pursue the vision given to me. With joy I received every enlightened detail. I never had to take notes because the details stayed apparent in my mind. As time moved forward more and more happened to bring me to where I am today. There was no name initially given, yet when I sought and listened..I heard "Joyful Creations..for You". Well, why "Joyful Creations" I asked? The answer given was "because it gave Me joy to create mankind in Our image. The unconditional love began before creation." From the beginning of time, it's been all about love! There is no greater foundation for a solid relationship that will stand the test of time than one built on LOVE! "Weddings by" has been added to for today's technology searches.
