Lynsey, Marketing Director and Lead Assistant

Lynsey is our marketing guru and lead assistant on all our events. She handles our social media, creative shoots, and is basically the team mom. She brings snacks to every meeting...and I don't mean chips and dip. We're talking homemade gnocchi and charcuterie boards straight off of Pinterest. She loves her puppies, whisky, and can dance to some Backstreet Boys like nobody's business.

Oscar, Bartender

His face is one of the first ones you see when you come back down the aisle as a married couple. He delivers your favorite drinks while you enjoy that Post Ceremony glow. He’s worked in the service industry for 20 years and his positive attitude is contagious. He handles all of our private tastings and guides our clients through the bar process so that the alcohol never runs out and the good times keep rolling. His infectious laugh livens up the party and he creates incredible cocktails on the fly that guests keep coming back for.

Jes Frank, Owner

Hi Beautiful,

Thank you for stopping by. I can't wait to hear all about your vision and your  story!

How I Ended Up Here:

I knew what I wanted to do early in life and haven't stopped working for it. Since 2010 I've worked for event coordinators, wedding planners, and catering companies. I’ve gained so much experience behind the scenes that it prepared me to launch my own company in 2016. I believe in ALWAYS learning, so I've gotten a Bachelors degree in Event Management, wedding planning certified by Kevin Lee, and interned for both him and David Tutera in Los Angeles.

In 2018 I bought Bride and Joy and opened up a 2500 square foot warehouse to offer specialty rentals and decor to clients.  I look forward to creating with you!

Fun Facts

I'm a cheeseburger lover, red wine + bourbon drinker, and have never turned down a bowl of mac + cheese.

I always ALWAYS look at the dessert menu first...because I'm a planner and you have to decide these things early!

Matthew 6:34 is my life verse.

I'm incredibly honored to have started a charity that turned 130 years of my family's work in Guatemala into an official non-profit called Raising Guatemala.

My Favorite Part of the Wedding Timeline:

When cocktail hour begins because that's when you know the party is starting.

Best Thing About Our Team:

We are all so cohesive. We all do our part and then some!

Most Unique Wedding Moment I've Seen:

The bride surprised her groom by serenading him at the reception.

Mini, Warehouse


Bride and Joy would not be up and running without this man. He keeps our orders organized and arriving at their locations on the right days and times. He fixes broken things and creates beautiful new pieces. He shows up to every event with a smile on his face and goes out of his way to make each big day run smoothly. When he's not at our warehouse he's snuggling with his cat Albus Dumbledore, fishing, or finding adventures.


My Favorite Cocktail to Drink:

Anything extra fruity and sweet! Don't judge me.

Did You Ever Think You'd End Up Doing Weddings?Absolutely not but after the first one, I was hooked.

Best Part of My Job:

Working with the best team!

Cody, Assistant

Cody started with us on a weekend during busy season when we were in a pinch. We needed an extra set of hands for a big set up and he became essential from then on. Our team loves him and he makes all of our jobs so much easier. His desire to absolutely nail every task given to him to make our couples happy is indispensable. He's a team player and extremely easy to get along with.

He is dedicated, flexible, and we are lucky to have him!
