Here we are again, Etsy’s unofficial fan club presidents! And today we have for you a self-proclaimed lover of the small business platform, Joy Proctor.
I don’t tend to get starstruck – having lived in New York City for nearly a decade you get used to weird encounters with celebrities. (Fun fact, I watched my beloved Seahawks win the Superbowl at a Manhattan taco joint with Alec Baldwin).
But let me tell you, having recently moved to Portland, there’s been a bit of me wondering how I’ll handle one day running into the incredibly talented, world-renowned wedding planner & stylist, Joy Proctor. I can just picture myself gasping for air, fangirling over Joy at the flower market or ribbon store (places I frequent, of course).
Anyway, embarrassing admission aside, we all should have plenty of reason to covet Joy Proctor’s tip-top event & wedding design. She’s long been heralded for her fine art flair, creating wedding scenes & suites that are both nostalgic in air & modern in taste. It’s likely for this reason she’s often tapped to lead the world’s best workshops & plan celebrity weddings (looking at you Sophie Turner!)
Beyond that, she’s even been called to design a few beautiful Etsy items herself! You all know how much we die for Bella Belle Shoes. Well, the popular bridal shoe designer was smart enough to see that Joy’s design talents stretched beyond wedding planning, collaborating with her on the most stunning & whimsical shoe collection.
We could go on and on about how much we adore her work, or you could let the photos of her many stunning weddings & editorials do the talking.
When we asked Joy (with our fingers crossed) to share her favorite 2020 holiday gifts on Etsy, she was actually one of the first to say yes! Being a lover of Etsy she knew exactly what she’d be gifting and asking for this season…
