Hello there! I’m Maria Chi, Peppermint Weddings’ Creative Director. I am in LOVE with creating designs that are sophisticated, refined, romantic and timeless.


 Leaving behind aspirations of working in the engineering field (uhm. yeah. totally not for me.), I started to pursue my love (and obsession!) for design, details, logistics, style and organization. 


In 2012, when wedding involvement found me, I knew it was a perfect fit. After seminars, trainings and internships in the wedding industry (and my hip-hop swagger skillz!), I courageously founded Peppermint Weddings. Since then, our team has grown and is now composed of a group of talented designers and coordinators.


Being able to do what I LOVE (designing!) and being able to work with amazing brides and wedding professionals make me super excited to get up in the morning and start my day!

SIDE NOTE:  Before the wedding industry, in a far away kingdom, I hold an international degree in Electrical Engineering and a diploma in Business Administration. I used to work 2-3 jobs at a time – in customer service, administration, sales, hospitality, marketing and engineering – trying to figure out what will resonate with me. BUT it was only when I got involved in weddings (randomly!) that I found my HAPPY PLACE’. Since then, I have created my own kingdom and never looked back.

XO, Maria
