I would like to introduce ourselves behind the scenes. My name is Lima and my husbands name is Eddy. We launched Ooyoot Market & Events September 2022. It has been a year of highs and lows. Many challenges and growth opportunities happened throughout the year. We have also launched Storii Coffee, a mobile coffee cart for events earlier in April of this year. We would like to be very transparent and share our journey in our journal posts. We have been quieter on social media, and instead networking in person a lot more. Understanding the power of social media, we will try to be a lot more present and active online.
I have a passion for creating, designing and coffee. We knew we wanted to start a business that would be something we enjoyed and had passion for. Eventually we decided on a smaller niche- luxury tabletop rentals. Lots of time was spent sourcing and curating a small dreamy collection to start with. I appreciate quality and amazing craftsmanship so much and wish more people had the opportunity to experience it. A beautiful, high quality place setting is not only beautiful and makes all of the pictures more beautiful, I think the food in such plates tastes better. I enjoy creating mood boards of mock ups and helping either brides or planners choose that perfect place setting. We have been sourcing more beauty to add on, and cannot wait to do so as soon as we are able to.
In this industry I realized the importance of Trust. Not only clients but also other wedding/event professionals. Being honest, transparent, friendly with great customer service skills is vital.
My family is my world, and my goal is to spend the most time with them, while our business flourishes with the help of the best team (dreaming). Our faith is our foundation. Only by God’s grace we are moving forward and not giving up, using the talents that He gave us.
Thank you for reading my first journal post as I opened up a little more about us.
