The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” – Aristotle
Cathy, Eunice, Linda and Nhu created Lumiani after being constantly asked by friends, “Will you help me on my wedding?” This seemingly innocuous request involves hours and hours of decision-making, imagination, research (online as well as physically going to vendors and venues), organization and hard work. With each friend’s wedding, we learned more about this process and felt that it was shame not to put all of that knowledge to use. More importantly, we learned that we love everything about weddings. We love the couples, the excitement, the industry, and all the little details that are all part of those special celebrations. We started with one friend, then another and, before we knew it, we were getting paid to coordinate weddings for people we didn’t know. We continued to grow by word of mouth passed along from friends and family. That’s how we started more than 5 years ago.
The secret sauce to Lumiani’s success is friendship and passion. We value each other’s ideas, strengths, and contributions. We value the friendship that comes with each of the couples that we work with and we make sure that our friends’ special days are exactly as how they picture it. With each couple, our team leans on one another to give our couples the wealth of experience we have acquired through our experience. We truly believe that every wedding is a team production! We strive to support your ideas and identify your perfect team of artists, from your photographer to your mixologist. Our mission has always been to provide personal service and then some because we go beyond our duty for each of our couples.
Lumiani is a full-service event planning and production studio that caters to a limited number of weddings per year. With Lumiani, you are part of the family.
