A Bash full of Beachy Bling:Tom and Tina's Wedding

Another double header has passed us by, but we had to share some pics and fun with you before we fall behind!

June 20th was a great day for Jenny, Melissa and Monique as they finally saw Tina walk down the aisle and marry Tom. It was truly an adventure working with Tina....her infectious laugh is something we are going to miss! Establishing a bond with our clients is so important and it makes it that more memorable for us when we see our brides GLOW with excitement and happiness. That is exactly what we saw that day.

Tina and Tom were married at St. Barbara's Greek Orthodox Church in Toms River in a lovely, traditional Greek ceremony. We could not stop dabbing the ever flowing tears of happiness from Tina's eyes after the was priceless to see so much love there! Tom could not keep his eyes off his gorgeous bride..he was constantly telling her how beautiful she was...ahhh, every girl's dream....
We were then off to McLoone's Pier House in Long Branch for beach pics and reception. Check out the awesome pics from Josh of Josh Lynn Photography...just beautiful--thanks! The party got underway shortly after...and boy, do they know how to PARTY!

And then came the special surprise....FIREWORKS! Our couple arranged for a wonderful fireworks display for their guests right on the beach. Guests were amazed...Tom and Tina absolutely LOVED IT!
Thanks so much to Pyrotechnico for all the prep and for lighting those suckers up! Anyone on the boardwalk in Long Branch that night definitely got a treat.
Big Thanks go out to to Sal Consentino and crew from Magic Moments for the fantastic music and to Bob of Visions Lighting for the ambiance. Thanks also to Kelly Samm-Adams of RSVP to me ELITE in Red Bank for the fabulous invitations and Kristin of Kreative Creations for the wedding day stationery. And of course, for the fantastic decor and centerpieces, Linda and Jill at Rose Petals and Lace--fabulous job ladies!

Congratulations to you Tom and Tina....we wish you all the happiness in the world!

We've got more for you hang tight!

Perfectly Pink: Courtney and Jason's Wedding

Our Memorial Day Weekend whirlwind of weddings ended with a blingy blast of sophistication, as Melissa, Adhari and Monique joined forces for Courtney and Jason's wedding on May 25th.

Our adorable couple (high school sweethearts) said their I Do's at St. Henry's Church in Bayonne. It was a beautiful ceremony, topped off with a showering of rose petals as they made their exit..Jonathan and Melinda of Milton Gil Photography were on hand to capture all the fun moments..great job guys!

During bridal party pictures, the PBW crew headed to the Brownstone in Paterson to assist in the set up. Thanks, once again, to Lisa and crew from A Touch of Elegance for the decor...three different centerpieces throghout the ballroom with varying shades/types of pink flowers, a structure of hanging votives behind the bride and groom and elegant napkin treatments, with ribbon and a little touch of bling. And, what room is complete without wonderful lighting?! Thanks so much to Bob Lo Bue and crew from Visions Lighting for providing the tools for the transformation!

A sneak peek of the room was given to the bride and true PBW fashion. What can we say....they LOVED it! Such a great feeling to have them see their design in front of their eyes!

The party was fabulous! Dancefloor was packed, thanks to Elite even had our crew shaking it--definitely a wonderful conclusion to a PACKED wedding weekend for PBW!

A HUGE congratulations to you, Courtney and Jason! Best wishes for a wonderful life together--we had a BLAST!

Elegant and Chic...with a view!

We told you we would bring you more!!

Another fun, young and fabulous PBW client tied the knot on Memorial Day Weekend.

Is there a word for BEYOND fabulous?! Kim and Jared's Wedding

We know, we know, you have just been DYING to see pics from our weddings this past Memorial Day weekend...haven't you?! For us, it's been worth the wait to see these AMAZING images from CLB Photography from the wedding of Kim and Jared.

Kim and Jared are a fabulous couple from the Jersey shore. They hired PBW with a not only wow their guests, but to completely BLOW THEM AWAY! And believe me, that is just what they did!

On Saturday, May 24th, Kim and Jared were married in a beautiful ceremony at ST. James Church in Red Bank, NJ. They had been waiting a LONG time for this day!

As Kim and Jared enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of fun pics with the bridal party, Jenny, Lisa Plociniak (with the amazingly talented crew from A Touch of Elegance), and our PBW crew started the pre-reception set up at Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club in Farmingdale. A set up that included custom linens in a vibrant palette of gold, fuschia and burnt orange...everything was made to order...from the overlays and chivari chair backs, to the fabulous napkin treatments.

The centerpieces literally made our crew gasp...constructed from scratch on site; gold branches with hanging votive holders in different shades, hanging crystals and wonderful balls of fuschia flowers embedded within.

And that's not all...the design included a magnificent Moroccan themed lounge, with custom drapery, pillows and furnishings! Enhancing the entire room was strategic lighting in shades of amber. The whole crew worked tirelessly to ensure all was completed to perfection!

The pics speak for themselves..special thanks to CLB for capturing every little detail!

Of course, with such an elaborate and exquisite set up...the bride and groom had to have the first peek. We stood aside and just waited for the reaction. As soon as they opened their eyes...jaws dropped, a couple of excited shrieks ...followed by repeated uses of the phrase "OH MY GOD!!". That was EXACTLY what we were aiming for! Jared was speechless...Kim was in awe--truly PRICELESS!

Even more Priceless were the guests faces as they entered the reception we stood in the corner extremely proud of a job well done!

We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the entire staff of a Touch of Elegance for helping us take this concept from paper sketches to a wonderful reality! Thanks to Linen Stock for the custom linens that made the guests shake their heads in amazement. The entire staff from Eagle Oaks...appreciate the patience and wonderful service! Rob Adams of Rob Adams Productions for being available to us for video--thank you!

And of course, to Melissa, Ariel, Kristin and Demetra for all your hard work throughout the day!

This wedding was spectacular in all aspects and Jenny and crew were so honored to have been a part of it!


For all of our readers: Stay tuned for more weddings from our triple header on Memorial Day weekend!
