Professional pics from Laura Bruen!

Here are some fabulous images shot by Laura Bruen of our May 25 wedding at the Meadowood Manor. I adore the green/purple color combo! And the vintage inspired textures and special touches (brocade linens, pearl treated brooches, floral designed plates and gold rimmed chargers, etc.) truly lent themselves to a gorgeous garden-esque design. Just had to share these with you!

Blythe and Adam - Better Late Than Never!

This post is a bit more ways than one! PBW clients Blythe and Adam were married last month at the gorgeous Palace at Somerset Park after being together for 17 years! Melissa worked closely with the clients and helped them pull off a beautiful and uber fun wedding! It was a super elegant affair for a super fun couple. Mitch the minister performed the ceremony for the couple's 140 guests.The design: rich purples and golds, with white florals. Gold beaded overlays by Table Wraps lent to richness of the affair. It was subdued...but added playfullness and sparkle to the table design. An outdoor cake cutting ceremony kicked off an amazing fireworks display. Guests were truly wowed and danced the night away! We wish the fun couple all the best! We really loved working with them.

Special thanks to our fabulous vendors:

Pink Comb Salon, Gloss and Shadow, Tackeff Photography (Brooke Ismach captured these fabulous images), John Carlos Borja on Video, Table Wraps, Touch of Elegance, NJ Photobooths, Elite Enterainment, Elegant Ensembles and Cam Turner Design.

Asia and Sean - A Castle Wedding With a Twist...

Sean and Asia are definitely not our average wedding planning couple. We typically have face to face meetings with our clients, join them on site visits, invite them to our office for design discussions, etc. But with this particular couple, the circumstances were anything but normal. Sean and Asia were serving our country in the military throughout the entire planning process. Needless to say, there were many obstacles. But we at PBW have such admiration and respect for the men and women protecting our country. So when the couple called us last year and asked us if were up for the challenge, we were honored and ready for it! After a year of many Yahoo chats and Skype calls, we were able execute a flawless event for our clients and give them the wedding of their dreams. The wedding was held at the beautiful Castle on Hudson in Tarrytown, NY. Guests flew in from all over the country to attend. It was simply a perfect day.

Sean and Asia may serve our country...but it was OUR pleasure serving them...and giving them a party they'll remember forever was our way of saying "thanks" for all they do for us.

Asia and Sean...thank you for the amazing experience. We wish you much love and safety as you venture back overseas.

Jenny and the PBW team

And let's not forget the amazing vendors who helped make the day fabulous!

CLB Photography, A Touch of Elegance, Jar of Ideas, Sounds to Go Djs, Cheryl Kleinman Cakes, Table Wraps, Gloss and Shadow for makeup, Something Different Party Rentals, and Scott and his team at Castle on the Hudson. Thanks to everyone...I really appreciate all your hard work.

Here are some images I snapped...CLB's photos will be posted soon.

We've been so busy doing sample meetings over the past few weeks. I thought I'd share one of my's a very romantic garden-esqe inspired design that's going to look absolutely beautiful in the ballroom at the Meadowwood Manor. We layered a gorgeous floral motif plate with a gold rimmed charger. Then we dressed up a simple satin napkin with a spring inspired ribbon and an antique looking brooch. We're so excited for the big day...which is coming up later this month. With florals by Touch of Elegance and rentals by Party Rental Ltd, the design is sure to impress guests!

A Bridal Shower That Rocked!

It's not very often a client tells us "just make it fabulous...and WOW my daughter!" That's exactly what the Mother of our July 2011 bride Samantha told us when she hired us to design her daughter's bridal shower. If you knew Samantha, you'd know she's beyond cool and deserving of a bridal shower unlike any other! We decided to make it a "rocker chick" theme, incorporating black, silver and deep purples. And as you can see from the pics, it was quite cool! Special thanks to A Touch of Elegance for the amazing centerpieces, Table Wraps for the funky linens, Jar of Ideas for the rocker inspired stationery, and Il Tulipano for hosting the fun event. We're so excited to wrap up the design for Samantha's July wedding at the Venetian...we'll be sure to post those pics too!

Congrats Sam! You're one cool lady! Love ya!


Congrats to Michelle and Steve!

This past weekend was a busy one for PBW. We're most excited however to share the details of Michelle and Steve's wedding! We've been working with this great couple for well over a year. And on Sunday the couple exchanged vows at St. Patrick's in Chatham and then celebrated at the gorgeous Liberty House in Jersey City. Below are some images taken by the always impressive Josh Lynn. I have to thank my A-Team Monique and Marcia...they really rocked it out on Sunday and helped me tremendously! A huge thanks to all the other vendors who helped make the day unforgettable!

Not your typical baby shower!

Babies, babies and more babies! While the name may fool you...Pampered Bride Weddings does alot more than just weddings these days!

The only event we love more than a wedding is a fabulous baby shower! Our very own Melissa, along with the creations by Lisa at Touch of Elegance, designed a very unique baby shower for one of our most favorite clients! PBW had the honor of planning Vanessa and Patrick's gorgeous Venetian wedding last year. When we found out she was expecting her first baby, we just knew the baby shower would have to be beyond fabulous!!! Forget everything you've heard about pink pacifiers, onesies and nursery rhymes...this shower ended all stereotypes!

Here are some pics by from last Saturday's "animalistic" baby shower! Special thanks to Raven and the Peach and all the amazing vendors who helped make the puuuur-fect :)

Congrats to Jenna and Chris!

Last week we had the honor of helping Jenna and Chris on their wedding day! Jenna, owner of Sensibly Sweet (a vendor we use for custom cookies all the time!) had her dream wedding at the beautiful Manor in West Orange. Here are some amazing pics taken by We wish the awesome couple all the best!!!!
