zenju weddings

Yanicke Lim Sang is from the island of Jamaica and has a unique diversity of cultures in her heritage, such as Chinese, African, and Indian.  Being from a multicultural family she always had an interest in diversity. 

Her eye for detail and colors allowed her to pursue a career in fashion design.  After receiving her degree at Miami International  University of Art and Design she remained in the fashion industry  for a couple of years until she traded the runway for motherhood.  Yanicke worked as an apprentice with a few planners and photographers for five years. Then she had the opportunity to work for  an online record company on Miami Beach coordinating concerts for new talent.

With several years of coordinating and design experience under her belt, she decided to launch Zenju Weddings and Events of Hawaii in 2010 after she relocated to the island.  She named the business after her two sons, Jude and Zen, and holds her business very close to her heart.
