Winter Magic at the Venetian: Lauren and Brian's Big Day

It was such a pleasure working with this wonderful couple!

Lauren came to Melissa with a few months to spare, needing assistance in bringing her design elements and special touches together for her white and silver (with bling, of course!) winter wedding December 4th. They hit the ground running (without even meeting in person until weeks later!)...securing fabulous linens, chargers, a custom runner, beautiful silver chameleon chairs, and revamped the couple's design concept with a new floral designer (the amazing Lisa and staff at A Touch of Elegance!). Lauren was amazingly laid-back and loved all the options we set before her...a total breath of fresh air!

The day was seamless...without a snag in any detail of the whole day...a rarity in weddings (most planners and vendors will tell you this!), especially with a bridal party of 24! Lauren was a vision in her couture Kenneth Pool gown..bridemaids were gorgeous (all 12 of them!)...and Brian was uber dapper along with his groomsmen.

The Venetian Palazzo Ballroom was simply stunning ...people were almost afraid to walk in the room (and we loooove that!). Three gorgeous centerpiece designs from A Touch of Elegance set the sophisticated and opulent atomosphere our couple was looking for!

Thanks so much to the fabulous team of vendors that came together to make this day perfect:

Floral Design: A Touch of Elegance (

See a glimpse of their day here!
Limos: Danaro Limousine (

Linens: Cloth Connection (

Chargers: Something Different Party Rental (

Silver Chameleon Chairs: Classic Party Rental (

Custom Runner: The Original Runner Company (

Entertainment: The Kevin Osbourne Band of Hank Lane Music

Lighting and Montage: Magic Moments

An extra special thank you to Carlos, Jimmy and the staff at the Venetian...another amazing job, as usual! And to the incredibly talented and tres magnifique Berit Bizjak of Images by Berit ( for capturing all of the special details of this day...the sneak peek of images we received has us salivating for more (And we will be showcasing more for sure)!

And last, but not least, a special shout out to our very own Adhari and PBW intern Alicia for being on point as Melissa's assistants...way to rock it out, ladies!

Cheers to you Lauren and Brian...much love and happiness always! Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your perfect day!

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

Greetings and happy holidays! My apologies to our readers...I've been a very bad blogger. This December was one of our busiest and we simply couldn't find time to update our blog. Our new year's resolution will undoubtedly be to blog more!

We had so many great weddings and events in December. Congratulations to our December brides: Laura, Lauren and Katie. And for the first time in years PBW has a New Year's Eve bride. Very exciting!

I promise to post pictures from all of these gorgeous events asap, so be sure to check back after the holiday.

But for now, let me take the opportunity to wish you and yours a very merry Christmas!!!

Wish Upon a Wedding - NJ's Launch Party

It's that time of year again...parties, celebrations, and lots of holiday cheer. It's also a time to reflect and be thankful for all the generous gifts we receive.

I must thank all the vendors who have reached out over the past several months offering to donate services to Wish Upon a Wedding brides/couples. Words simply cannot describe how grateful the entire board is for your generosity! We will soon be granting wishes and utilizing your services...but first, we have to celebrate the launch of one of the organization's newest chapter...NEW JERSEY! Our board has been very hard at work planning a fabulous launch party! The event will be on January 18th at 6:30pm and will be held at the amazing Florentine Gardens. If you are a vendor wishing to get involved with the organization or a wedding professional of any kind, or just someone looking to learn more about our NJ are invited! Please email me for details!

I hope to see all of you there!
