Samantha and Jeremy - Featured Wedding on

We were so thrilled when we learned that Samantha and Jeremy's wedding was chosen to be featured on the always fabulous website. The couple had an elegant autumnal wedding just a few short weeks ago.

Special thanks to Linda and Jill and the entire team at for designing such stunning floral arrangements and bouquets. And of course...a big kudos to our very own Melissa for her top notch design and coordination work!

Autumn Elegance for an awesome couple: Samantha and Jeremy

PBW had the pleasure of working with Samantha and Jeremy to help plan and coordinate their October 23rd wedding in Monmouth County. Melissa met Samantha and Jeremy fall of 2008 and they hit the ground running... booking venues and vendors and designing a clean and elegant fall fete that would wow their guests. Over a year of planning together proved to be quite a fun time, as this couple always made things interesting...and always made Melissa laugh. Erika was brought along for the ride and shared in the fun as Melissa's right hand day of.

The couple exchanged vows at Mary Mother of God church in Middletown..then headed to Deep Cut Park for pics. It was a bit chilly...but judging from the amazing pics from Elisabeth Millay at Elisabeth Millay Photography ( ..I'd say they didn't mind a bit!

Then it was off to South Gate Manor in Freehold for the reception. A wonderful cocktail hour...complete with a Virginia Tech Hokie ice sculpture (yes, they met there!) kicked off what was sure to be a most memorable night. The reception room was gorgeous...high and low centerpieces with vanda orchids and dahlias...accented with willow branches...totally set the mood (thanks to the lovely ladies at Rose Petals and Lace , along with lovely amber uplighting from Infinity Studios. Beautiful day of stationery by our fabulous Cam Turner ( matched the decor perfectly!

Sam and Jeremy definitely wanted a party...and they sure had one! The dancefloor was packed all night...thanks to Johnny Budz and his team at Elite Sound Entertainment. Josh Lynn and his awesome photobooth from NJ Photobooths ( was a true always!

Special thanks to Chris, Matt, Bobby and the staff at South Gate Manor for being so accomodating. Also, thanks to Rob at Rob Adams Productions for documenting the day so wonderfully on video.

We are so happy for you Samantha and Jeremy...we had a blast working with you and wish you all the best!

Wedding and Event Planning 101 Course - Last Call for This Sunday's Class!

We have a few spots available for this Sunday's (Nov 8th from 10am to 4pm) Wedding and Event Planning 101 Class. Due to unexpected family commitments, two of our students had to unfortunately cancel. I keep my classes small (prefer an intimate learning environment!) so we only have 2 spots available. This is your chance!!!! We will not be holding any other sessions until after the holidays.

About the class:
If you're new to the industry or are looking to find out if you're a good fit for the business, then this class is perfect for you!

Lunch will be served, and useful documents and tools will be handed out. For more information, just email me!
