A PBW Triumph of UberFablicious Proportions: Vanessa and Patrick's Wedding!

March 6, 2010 was such a magical day for our gorgeous couple Vanessa and Patrick. For Pampered Bride was an honor beyond measure to plan, design and coordinate all aspects of this stunning affair! There were simply NO WORDS to accurately describe everything this wedding our very own Adhari came up with a word that took all the deliciousness and fabulously amazing details and rolled it into one..."UberFablicious"!!

Vanessa came to PBW over a year ago and it was very clear to Jenny and Melissa that this was going to be a great adventure..and boy, it really was!

It all started with a classic color palatte of whites, champagnes and golds...which we adored! A year-long collaboration with the amazing Lisa Plociniak and her team at A Touch of Elegance brought so many design concepts that we had to restrain ourselves at times! The winning reception design included using a combination of long "tuscan" tables, numerous rounds, and a scattering of square tables to display Vanessa's wish for luscious florals and jaw-dropping romantic elegance, with a pop of modern design.

Numerous design meetings, fun lunch get-togethers and many, MANY text messages all led to a day that was nothing short of PERFECTION!

Vanessa was a vision in a Platinum Collection Priscilla of Boston was wonderful having Eleanor (from the ever popular Kleinfeld in NYC) on hand for the little touch ups all day..that bustle was a doozy...but looked amazing! Our groom was super dapper and looking oh so were all his groomsmen, who were probably the most helpful set of guys we have ever encountered (Thanks guys!). The images from Josh Lynn simply speak for themselves...

We cannot go further without taking the time to thank the MANY people that helped create the MAGIC we saw throughout the day!
