A Walk to Remember

Bride inscribes 55 feet of linen for her ceremony at Sodo Park.


Spring/Summer 2018

Talk about making an entrance: For their November 5, 2016, nuptials at Sodo Park by Herban Feast in SoDo, Karyn Mai and Jason Perlman created a sweeping aisle runner that not only lent a wow factor to the decor, but a special poignancy to their ceremony as well. The duo decorated all 55 feet of linen fabric—which Karyn bought at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft and then commissioned calligrapher Crystal, owner of The Fancy Cat Studio, to inscribe using a beautiful, looping cursive—with a combination of love quotations that celebrated their individual families and heritages. Jason’s Jewish family chose sayings in Hebrew; Karyn’s, in her native Vietnamese. The couple also mixed in English quotes to represent their new life together as husband and wife.
