Sexy Pumpkin at the Westmount CC

We had the honor of working with Justine and Steven for the last 15 months and then watching them exchange vows last weekend. What an amazing and sweet couple! The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful Basilica of our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn, NY. Following that was a fabulously over the top reception at the one and only Westmount Country Club.

Interesting story...
When the Bride came to me back in 2007 she asked us to help take her vision of an elegant fall inspired wedding and turn it into something unique. She showed me this mini pumpkin (couldn't have been more than 2 inches high) that was covered with colorful bling. While neither of us felt it was the appropriate decorative touch for her event, I did get inspired by the sexy-ness of that small pumpkin!!!! From that moment on I coined her wedding design (jokingly) as SEXY PUMPKIN! Somehow the phrase stuck and 15 months later....Justine and I both agree that her wedding was SEXY PUMPKIN and BEYOND!
We incorporated deep browns, merlots and reds..and accented with touches of matte gold. Add some crystal, candlelight and gorgeous textured linens...and we had one beautiful wedding design!

A big thanks to the amazing staff at the Westmount, especially Stephanie and Karen. Of course we have to give a huge kudos to Matt and his team at Atlas Florists, Tricia Catenaro for beautifying the bride, Santos for the reliable transportation, and Cloth Connection for the rentals.

And these amazing pics are courtesy of Vito at Jasmine Photo.

Justine and Steven....we loved working with you!!!! Hope you're having a great honeymoon!

Whose Wedding is it Anyway? It's a wrap!

We recently wrapped filming another WWIIA episode this week. This storyline is sure to please! When the network asked me for some "tv" worthy couples...I immediately thought of Divina and Aaron. They auditioned for the show and the network couldn't resist their spunk and outgoing personalities. There was some very light drama (trying to successfully orchestrate an interfaith ceremony with an MIA Cantor, a wedding planner trying to learn to dance the Hora at 7 months pregnant, etc.) but in true WWIIA fashion, everything worked out perfectly and Aaron and Divina had the wedding of their dreams! I can't tell you too much about the storyline...but I can say that everyone's hard work paid off and the bride was brought to tears when the room was revealed to her. Her tears became my tears...and it was just a fabulously emotional night!
Special thanks to all our amazing vendors...Seasons, Touch of Elegance Florist, Sounds to Go, Palermos Bakery, Michelle Loconte of I Do Hair and Makeup, Jackie Cantaneze of Facez Portfolio, and Scott Photography. I also want to extend a HUGE thank you to my girls (Monique and Demetra) for their hard work that day. And of course, I have to extend a great big thanks to the production team at True Entertainment/Style Network. You guys rocked!!!! We will be sure to post professional pics asap, but for now, please enjoy these shots. Divina and Aaron, congrats to you both...we love you!!!

Amazing cake from Palermos (Can't say too much, but books played a big role in theme)

Picture really does the design NO justice (prof pics will be posted soon) but colors were deep red, gold and burgundy. It was simply rich and divine...

The good looking couple

Rebecca and Will: Autumn Fun...with a twist of Halloween!

PBW would like to extend a huge congratulations to our super fun couple, Rebecca and Will! The couple were married October 25th at St. Valentine's Church in Bloomfield. Melissa and Adhari were on hand to make sure all went fabulously.

Lots of quirky and fun touches made this wedding really unique. Along with a vibrant autumn palatte of reds, yellows and oranges, small hints of Halloween popped out...and rightfully so, with the candy filled holiday only a few days away, you couldn't deny the couples need for a fuzzy spider here and there!

Another unique touch was the specially brewed beer for Will and Rebecca, they took this element and made it so functional...they served as the guest placecards! Each guest was able to walk to their seat with a special wedding day brew! Made for a wonderful presentation and was fun..just like our couple!

The best part...the amazing antique cars used to transport the bride to church and the couple to the beautiful Mayfair Farms in West Orange...take a look at that great!

It was a fun filled night and we want to thank the staff at Mayfair Farms for all the help for set up. We especially would like to thank Scott Bush of Scott Photography ( for the fantastic pics!

Congratulations Rebecca and Will!

Whose Wedding is it Anyway? New episode airing Tuesday November 11th!

For all our WWIIA fans, we've got a new episode airing on Tuesday November 11 at 10pm. We were extremely fortunate to get our hands on a copy of the show before it aired and it's hysterically entertaining! ....Just an fyi...the planners on the show don't actually see the show until it premiers. They watch it for the first time with the rest of the world!
This episode features Jenny and her adorable and fun loving clients Yezenia and Regina...(PBW's first lesbian couple AND the first to ever be featured on WWIIA.) Be sure to tune in as Jenny, who was 3.5 months pregnant during filming, tries to make Yezenia's and Regina's wedding dreams come true without being overcome by nausea, fatigue and all the other annoying pregnancy symptoms you can think of!

Tune in on November 11th to watch all the fun!
