After planning her own wedding in 2008, Andrea knew event planning was her passion. With the help of her mom Jackie, the mother-daughter duo successfully planned Andrea’s large-scale wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. No detail was overlooked; from the cigar roller, to the personalized matchboxes, to the custom drink menu, no stone was left unturned. After numerous special requests for their services, Andrea and Jackie decided to open Andrea Joy Events in 2010.
