Brijal, Assistant Event Coordinator & Event Designer

Brijal Vadgama is an event coordinator and event designer for Graceful Gatherings and also works as a freelance graphic designer. Along with also working in retail part time, she also has previous experience as a hostess and receptionist. Brijal has an associate degree in graphic design and is currently in progress of achieving a bachelors degree in business management. She always felt event coordinating was a career that compliments her personality and interests. When she’s not working or at school, she is usually out with close friends, working out at the gym, eating out at a restaurant, or spending time with her dog, Bentley. Brijal’s first memorable event was a Hawaiian theme birthday party she planned and decorated for herself when she turned 11 years old.

Jessica, Assistant Event Coordinator

Jessica Fossum graduated from Sierra Collage with her associates degree in photography. While event planning and coordination was not initially her passion she uses her photographers eye to help create a picture perfect event. Jessica’s eye for detail and love of art spill into her full time job as a manager of a custom frame shop. It’s not enough just to capture the moment, but displaying it beautifully helps you to relive the moment forever. Outside of her busy work life Jessica enjoys a number of activities ranging from being a total geek who plays magic and videos game; to improving her skills in the archery range one arrow at a time. However sometimes nothing can compare to relaxing at home with a good movie or intriguing book with a nice hot cup of tea.
