What I liked about… Keiko and Mark’s Wedding


DIY weddings are becoming more and more popular and I love the creativity of every couple when they incorporate elements that tell about their story and personality.

Keiko and Mark are a perfect example of a wedding celebration that tells about the love of two wonderful people thanks to personal details. Who said that simple and organic can’t be fun?!?





Sweet Ribbon Events made all the flowers and provided the specialty linens.



Mark created this unique escort cards display (“It was quite an interesting project,” he said) and I printed all the escort cards with the same pattern from their wedding invitation (a delicate green fern).




Centerpieces were arranged with personal belongings from Keiko and Mark: favorite books, potted plants that they bought at a local garden store, and framed portraits from their trips together. I printed the table numbers with the same fern pattern of their invitation and escort cards.


Sweet Ribbon decorated the sweetheart table with blossoms in Keiko’s favorite colors over a delicate lace overlay.


Villa Capri catered the reception with an authentic Italian menu. Appetizers included tray-passed hors d’oeuvres and a delicious display of assorted cheese, artisan breads, and fruit.


Rentals were provided by Raphael’s Party Rentals and they also installed fun string lights for the party to go on until late in the night. There were a lot of dancers among the guests!



Keiko fell in love with Cupcakes Squared because of the unusual square shape and the couple decided to have a cupcake cake and a variety of cupcakes to satisfy every taste – gluten-free included!


Favors were another DIY project: Keiko and Mark purchased little jars and filled them with nuts and candy. They personalized each one with different labels for a pop of color.


It was a privilege being part of Keiko and Mark’s wedding, congratulations to the couple!

Thanks to Inner Song for the fantastic pictures!
