Designer Christian P. Nelson has been in the industry since the early 2000s.
He started his career in the mid-1990s, when he was already a designer, working on many of the industry’s first big projects, including the wedding dress, and then a line of wedding accessories.
In 2006, he cofounded Christian Design, a company with a focus on wedding and bridal designs.
He also cofounded Wedding Designer, which has been around since 2007.
In 2015, Nelson moved from his original company to a new one, Christian Planning, which makes design for weddings, anniversaries and celebrations.
He now has a new company called Christian Planners, which is in the same space, as well as the Christian Design Group, and the Christian Planning Company, which focuses on wedding design.
In 2018, Nelson took a job as the lead designer on a wedding in England.
He and his wife, Joanna, were married at a private event and the couple were in London for a week.
Nelson, who works for Christian Planning on all of their projects, says he has seen an uptick in demand for wedding planners, but that the demand is not as strong as it used to be.
He says there’s a lot of new ideas, new technology, but not as much money in the way of resources and design.
“The market is saturated, and that’s the challenge,” Nelson says.
He also points out that the trend in the business is not for wedding designers to be more traditional.
“We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel,” he says.
“What we do is give you the flexibility to customize to your wedding.”
But if the trend continues, Nelson says he believes the industry could see a lot more growth.
“This industry is really a very unique industry in that there is a very large variety of design,” he said.
“If you look at the market, there are a lot and it’s very flexible.”
“We want to make sure that people are satisfied with the product that they’re purchasing,” he adds.
“They have choices and they can tailor their experience to them.
That’s the real benefit of a wedding.”
