Shannon and Chris - Brooklyn Bash!

On Sunday, one of my absolute favorite couples tied the knot in true PBW style! Shannon and Chris celebrated their nuptials at the one and only Stage 6 Steiner Studios, located at the Brooklyn Navy yard. Shannon came to PBW over a year and a half ago with one request...she wanted a fabulous wedding and there HAD to be black and white damask. We went back and forth for months about color and we finally came up with a winning combination! With help from Lisa at Touch of Elegance ( we designed a gorgeous, stylish and modern wedding for our bride. Here are some pics I took at the wedding. Professional pics from Photography by Rebecca will be posted soon! I want to thank for the amazing entertainment, for their hard work all day on photo and video, Lisa and her team at Touch of Elegance, Jenna at for the gourmet NYC themed cookie favors, Kelly Samm at RSVP to Me ( for the one of a kind stationery, Michelle Loconte on hair, Evelyn Abanto on makeup, and of course, John Iannello at Stage 6/Abigail Kirsch...he and his team did an outstanding job!

We're going to miss working with the Shannon and Chris...but we're so honored they allowed us to be part of their wedding planning process and big day!

Here's to the happy couple!

Congratulations to Dorothy and Raymond!

Please join me in congratulating another PBW couple, Dorothy and Raymond! The two exchanged vows on June 20 and celebrated at the Mill at Spring Lake. Everything was simply gorgeous. Dorothy's eye for detail and use of color really showed! Guests were so impressed by the decor and as you see from the pics, the bride and groom celebrated in style! PBW ladies Aimee and Adhari were with the bride all day to ensure everything looked perfect. We wish the happy couple all the best!

Lauren and Allesio....True Italian Romance!

One of our most stylish and detail oriented brides recently got married and PBW ladies Angela and Monique were there to ensure the wedding day went off without a hitch. Lauren, a former PBW employee, met Alessio while visiting family in Italy. The two fell in love and as they say, the rest is history! Lauren and Alessio tied the knot on June 19 and celebrated in style at the beautiful Rockleigh Country Club. As you can see from the pics above, the couple had the wedding of their dreams! Everyone did a fabulous job...special thanks to Laurie and her team at Laurelwood Designs for the amazing decor! Everything was simply Bellisima!
