PBW soon to launch Plush Events

We simply adore planning weddings...but we also enjoy working on many different types of events. Over the years we have designed and planned bat and bar mitzvahs, sweet 16's, corporate functions, showers, etc. but we sort of "flew under the radar" because they weren't wedding related!

It took some time but we are now offically ready to launch PBW's sister company Plush Events! This company, while still maintaining the popular PBW motto of "making it fun and stress free," will focus on designing and planning events all throughout the tri state area.

We will soon launch our new website showcasing all of the fabulous work we've done over the years. We're very excited about this new venture and hope for loads of continued success!

I recently had the privilege of being featured in the one and only Bridal Guide magazine. The article was entitled "Fabulous $5000 Weddings!" and can be found in the May/June 09 issue. I chose to design a sassy beach soiree, filled with ocean inspired decor and beachy/seaside yummies!

Special thanks to Kristen Finello at Bridal Guide and of course to the amazing Therese Marie Wagner for the beautiful photography!

You love us, you really, really love us!!!!

Great news!!!! PBW has received (for third year in a row) the honor of being chosen as one of the Knot's "Best of" for 2009!!! We just got the news last week...and we're elated! Thanks so much for voting and for being such big fans and supporters of our work. We are truly honored! To do what you love and get an award for it is just awesome! Here's to a fabulous 2009!

Charitable Couture - A Project Bridesmaid Event

PBW was elated to receive an invitation to this year's Project Bridesmaid/Planet Hope launch event in NYC hosted by Modern Bride. Project Bridesmaid is a charity that was founded by Kelly Stone (Sharon's sister) in hopes of collecting and donating beautiful dresses to young girls in need. Just last year over 2 thousand prom dresses were donated to teenage girls in New Orleans who tragically lost everything to Katrina.

The event was held at the one and only Hammerstein Ballroom and was attended by some great leaders in the bridal and fashion world... not to mention some fun and fabulous TV Celebs (see pics below). The amazing Shontelle performed and she rocked the house!

While I didn't personally place any bids, (I am far from fitting into Kim Kardashian or Julia Robert's dresses) there were dozens of designer couture dresses and gowns worn and then donated by celebs that were up for auction. These dresses were selling for thousands...so some really great money was raised to help the charity.

We always enjoy attending fun and swanky events in NYC but we felt especially honored being a part of something so charitable!

Oh how we love cool engagement sessions!

Leave it to Chris and Suzanne of CLB Photo to turn an ordinary engagement session into something totally fun and unique!
Here's a teaser photo...

I think you'll really enjoy!
