Nicole Miller event

Pampered Bride Weddings was the exclusive wedding planner at an invitation only event at Nicole Miller in Livingston on October 21st. Jenny and Melissa had a fabulous time meeting brides and networking with our fellow wedding gurus!
Lisa Placiniak of A Touch of Elegance Floral Design (far left) provided us with a beautiful arrangement for our table and joined us as we greeted many a bride.

NJ Bride was the official sponsor for the event...here is a pic of Jenny with Carla Gouraige (on the left), advertising exec for NJ Bride. Thanks so much to the ladies of Nicole Miller for being such gracious hosts and for allowing us the opportunity to meet such lovely brides!

Beachy Bonfire Bliss...Janine and Dave's Wedding

A heartfelt congratulations goes out to our most recent married couple, Janine and Dave. They were married October 7th and had a fabulous beach themed reception at the Ocean Place Resort and Spa in Long Branch, NJ. Decor was breathtaking...cake was fabulous...special thanks to Rose, Petals and Lace for the amazing centerpieces, wreaths and potted arrangements. Thanks to Sounds to Go for all the fantastic music at the reception and bonfire. Yes, we said BONFIRE! Janine and Dave thought it would be fantastic to have the family enjoy the sand and surf that evening with a huge bonfire....they were absolutely right! Ice Cream sundaes, hot cider and coffee, doughnuts and drinks---AMAZING! We also want to thank CLB Photography for being on hand taking tons of pics.

The Pampered Bride crew was on hand to make sure all details were taken care of---THANKS SO MUCH LADIES!

All the best in love and happiness to you, Janine and Dave--we love ya!

A Reunion...A Wedding....A Pampered Couple!

Pampered Bride had the distinct pleasure of working with Allison and Chris and assisting them as they prepared for their September 29th wedding. Our first meeting was a reunion...Jenny realized she went to grade school with Chris as they are from the same town...knew the same people and were friends--just lost touch! Though Jenny was unable to be at the wedding, she attended the rehearsal with Melissa, their Day of Coordinator, to meet up with some old friends. It was a lovely time and we want to thank Chris's parents for allowing us to "feast" with the family. Here is Jenny and her old buddies from Maywood....the groom, Chris, is 2nd in from the left.

The next day, Allison and Chris were married and had their reception at the beautiful Venetian in Garfield, NJ. The bride and groom met before the ceremony and they had their "first encounter" in the garden..Chris was overwhlemed...and we want to thank their photographer, Josh Lynn, for capturing all the emotion throughout the day. Melissa had the honor of being their Day of Coordinator that day--Kristin assisted and did an fabulous job with her placecards, programs and table signs.

The candy buffet was gorgeous and was a total hit!

An amazing day for an amazing couple! Thanks for letting us share in your special day!!

Here is a pic of the filming crew with Jenny and Monique...Jenny had a great time "roughing it" while planning an elegant destination wedding for Stewart and James. FYI...Stewart is actually the bride!
