Introducing Karell of Kaki Camara Weddings (MD Wedding Design)
I absolutely believe in the mantra “community over competition.” Without other wedding vendors adopting this philosophy, my business would never exist. The support of like-minded wedding professionals and photographers is what helped launch my business this year. I want to give back!
Every week, I am going to be highlighting a local wedding vendor and professional. I’ve interviewed a number of local vendors about their business and what they love most about serving couples in this area.
Choosing the right vendors can be the make or break of your wedding day. My hope is to provide you and your fiancé with a resource that helps you build your wedding day dream team!
I’m delighted to introduce you to Karell Camara, owner and lead designer of Kaki Camara Weddings & Events (MD wedding design).
I’m so happy to see this blog series expanding to other states in the DMV region, giving couples more options closer to where their wedding will be!!
Let’s jump in and chat with Karell!!
My name is Karell Camara, and I am the Creative Lead Designer at Kaki Camara Weddings & Events. Kaki Camara Weddings & Events offers event décor and rentals. Our mission is to serve multicultural individuals who are celebrating milestones dear to their heart and culture. No matter the background of the ones we serve, it is our desire to highlight the cultural identities of all families through authentic celebrations.
I have been in business for about a year in MD wedding design.
I was encouraged by family and friends after I did a surprise intimate reception for my cousin and brother-in-law’s wedding.

THE FRENCH WAY
As a product of the French culture, we infuse poise, personality, class and elegance into every event.
Delegate, delegate, you don’t have to do it all.
My first official wedding, with a rustic elegant theme. It was scary and outside my comfort zone, but the results were worth the sweat.
I would trust them enough to give them full creative control. I came to them because I loved their work. And I should trust that they can bring my vision to life.
My current goal is really to develop a good marketing strategy which will turn my leads into clients.
I recently assisted with a kid’s party styled shoot with Elevate Décor and Just Kids Party rentals, and that project turned out to be very beautiful. Tolu from Elevate Décor is so creative. I am happy to have participated in that project.
After checking out Karell’s work, I was really impressed by her dedication to authentically representing her clients’ cultures and vision. I could easily tell she takes great care to try to fully understand the details and desires of her couples in order to design an event that feels true to them.
