Another HUGE Congratulations....

I am SOOOOOO pleased to make this announcement! Our very own Monique recently graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in social work. Monique joined PBW over two years ago as my assistant. She has blossomed into an amazing wedding coordinator and floral designer and I could not be any prouder! She's a go-getter who possesses a positive attitude with everything she pursues. And as if this news isn't great enough, she just got accepted into Forham's graduate school!!!! There's nothing this PBW lady can't do! Please join me in congratulating Monique! We love ya girl!

We LOVE our interns!

For the last four months we've had two amazing interns working in the PBW office. Erika and Georgia, both students of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, have been invaluable over the past season and we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to them for all their help and support. They have both brought such a wonderful sense of style and ingenuity to our business and we could not have done all we did without them. While Erika has one more semester ahead of her, Georgia recently graduated and I had to take a few moments to congratulate her on this amazing achievement! She plans to pursue fashion marketing full time but she will also continue to be part of the PBW team on her days off! Erika will also remain on board as an assistant wedding coordinator. I feel so lucky to have such cool ladies on my team!

Hats off to these fabulously talented fashionista divas!

Megan and Patrick Tie the Knot!

We recently had the pleasure of working with one of the sweetest couples...Megan and Patrick! The two were married on Saturday in Hoboken and celebrated in style at the one and only Liberty House. The couple mixed shades of corals and pinks and complimented with striking black and white damask patterns. The room looked spectacular! Special thanks to Touch of Elegance for the amazing florals, Josh Lynn for the beautiful photos, Rob Adams for video, Jerry Kravitz for entertainment, Cloth Connection for the linens and Danielle at the Liberty House for helping with all the details. It was a major team effort and we thank everyone involved! We wish the happy couple a fabulous honeymoon and a lifetime of happiness!

PBW Ladies Make Adorable Babies!

Thanks to Facebook I have been reconnecting with so many former PBW clients. I love hearing good news from everyone and I especially love learning about expanding families! So many of our former clients (and we're going back 4 and 5 years) had babies and/or are expecting their first bundle of joy! I just had to share with everyone some adorable baby pics from a few of our former clients. These babies just melt my heart!!!! (And of course I had to throw in a pic of my own cutie pie at the bottom!)

Congrats to all our clients on their beautiful families!

Boudoir pics CAN be classy!!!!

I have seen alot of boudoir sessions and not all of them have been elegant and classy. It takes a very talented photographer to produce sexy AND classy images of a woman. It's very easy to go down the "raunchy" we are fortunate to know some talented photographers with mad skills that we can recommend to our clients seeking boudoir pics.

Our good friends at Scott Photography ( have launced their boudior photo division...and I have to's fabulous!!!

If I hadn't just had a baby...I would definitely book a session!

Check out these amazing images...these ladies are brides to be...not models!!!

Just breathtaking...
