Meet Jamie Bruce of Thumbprint Weddings & Events in Central San Diego

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamie Bruce.

Jamie, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I didn’t always know I wanted to be a wedding and event planner. It took changing majors a few times, one life changing occurrence that lead me to my first event planning experience and a quick flip through the SDSU course catalogue to finally find my career path.

From the time I graduated in 2012 until this past April my primary focus had been working as a corporate and third party event planner. In these roles I was responsible for coordinating events such as annual conferences, volunteer projects and meetings with a sprinkling of social events. Although fun, there was something missing…weddings.

In 2015, I started Thumbprint Weddings & Events as a side venture to fulfill my passion for wedding planning. I hadn’t intended to make my business my full time focus; it was what some would call a “hobby”. But after exploring different avenues and still not finding what I was seeking, I decided to focus on my business full time. I am now 100% committed to growing Thumbprint Weddings & Events and am excited to see where it takes me!

Has it been a smooth road?
It has been quite the journey getting to where I am now. Having the courage to focus on my business full time has been one of the toughest decisions I have had to make. Working in such a competitive industry I know I will be faced with many challenges especially as I continue to build my business and brand, but I’m passionate about what I do and look forward to what is to come.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
