Vendor Highlight // Kaki Camara Weddings in Laurel, MD


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!!

Start by introducing yourself! Tell us your name, business name, what you do, where you’re located, and who you serve!

How long have you been in business?

What is one piece of advice you would offer a newly engaged couple as they plan their wedding?

Delegate, delegate, you don’t have to do it all.

Tell us about one of your favorite projects you’ve done as a vendor!

My first official wedding, with a rustic elegant theme. It was scary and outside my comfort zone, but the results were worth the sweat.

If you were planning a wedding, what is one thing you would discuss with a vendor like you and why?

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.

Share one goal you have for your business right now.

My current goal is really to develop a good marketing strategy which will turn my leads into clients.

Share one of your most recent wins from a past project or for a past client!

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.
