Lush Micro Wedding, Oaklands Presbyterian Church

Achama + Igwe

A young vibrant Nigerian couple who although they had their traditional West African wedding, they wanted to have an intimate micro wedding in the states. Their wedding day took place on a warm, crisp fall afternoon. The vibe was soft and romantic – with the space full of lush blush flowers with a touch of gold accents.

The Venue – Oakland’s Presbyterian Church

Laurel, Maryland

Lets first talk about the space. It was not your usual venue –the bride chose to transform the lobby area of Oakland Presbyterian Church located in Laurel, Maryland. The ceremony took place at the church and transitioned over to the adjacent transformed lobby. It was the perfect space for an intimate wedding of 10 guests

The second piece to making this romantic day happen, was getting the right decor. We worked with BCG Events for the floral designs and The Light Source company for draping and lighting. Table and chair rentals came from Nostalgia Events and the flatware from Something Vintage.

“She has a great eye for detail. She asked really great questions and thought about things I didn’t even remember / consider. She helped me with finding food and drink vendors. The wedding was perfectly time managed…”

The Planning Process

In speaking to the bride, she mentioned she found me through Instagram and reached out to me about 5 weeks prior to her wedding day. It was a short window, however I was able to secure her caterer, Chops by Rera and bar tender.

During the rehearsal walk-through of the ceremony space, we noticed the sound system was not functioning. I quickly was able to provide speaker and microphone to ensure the celebration went without a hitch!

Yosira is extremely thorough and professional. From your initial meeting and calls throughout the process before the event, all details are taken care of.

She was professional, punctual, and was able to provide advice that helped us accommodate last minute attendees while staying within budget. Our memorable event would not have been successful without the help of “Events by Yosira”

I recently had the opportunity to work with Yosira on an art pop up shop. Since this was our first event outside of the tri-state area, it was crucial having her as our woman on the ground in the DMV area. Yosira communicates effectively, ensuring that every detail is accounted for. From securing a beautiful space for our event, to creating a marketing plan, Yosira brought our vision to life. Her creativity, professionalism, and work ethic are unmatched.
