Re-inventing Damask for the last day of the year!

We are so excited about our New Year's Eve Wedding this year at Florentine Gardens.

The clients are amazing and were absolutely blown away at our sample this past Thursday night.

The bride is lucky enough to have a very talented and gracious cousin that is a very talented floral designer, Mary of Ciao Bella! flowers in NYC is going to create the stunning centerpieces you see here from the sample this past week.

We decided on a damask theme with hot hues of red/hot pink OVER A YEAR AGO. And I say that with passion as last year the "damask overload" was non-existant. This year you can't open a magazine, or look at a blog without seeing some sort of damask in the design. We tiptoed on the cusp of the craze 3 years ago at our (now apparently famous) Wedding Central Episode at The Liberty House where Robin K created an amazing brown/cream damask look that we ran with for all design elements.

So then after I saw it popping up everywhere (and not always very creatively) I got concerned that our gorgeous design would become old news before we could even say Happy New Year!

So Mary, Sharon and I got together to really try to blow the doors off the damask you've seen in the past year. We really want to wow everyone and make this the be-all-end-all of damask designs. It is still a work in progress BUT we had to share. So excited
Thanks again to Mary for such a beautiful sample!
Stay tuned!

New Press

Recently GG was asked to give some valuable editorial content about how hiring the right planner can truly be a wonderful asset to a Bride and Groom.
This article was really interesting (even for ME) to read because some of the examples Giovanna gave in the article were so right on, and boy did they bring back some memories! It's hard to believe what we do sometimes all in the name of making it perfect and most importantly NEVER letting the bride know that something went wrong!

Great job GG, make sure you pick up a copy of the new issue on newsstands now and read all about what goes on behind he scenes of your big day!

Pink Veil Event

oh so fab is so honored to have been invited not only to attend but to design this amazing Breast Cancer Event at Exquisite Bride on October 4th.

The Pink Veil Event is an annual event that is held at Exquisite Bride and is a fundraising extravaganza chock full of all the BEST and most HIGH END wedding vendors in the Tri-State area.

We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful event, for a wonderful cause.
Please come down on October 4th to help raise awareness, sip some champagne and enjoy some of the best of the best in the Wedding Industry.

Beautiful Views, Beautiful Night!

This weekend we had the pleasure of working at The Chart House in Weekawken, NJ. The views are spectacular, and so was the design if I do say so myself! Last year a wonderful couple named Tiffany and Matt came to us with great taste and the willingness to allow us to create their beautiful vision for their big day.

With the help of some of our favorite vendors we were able to create an elegent, yet modern event with a slight Asian twist. The couple was delighted and so were we. This is one of my favorite designs as the colors are my absolute favorite pairing of chocolate brown, white and bright green.
Special thanks to, Jeff Vock, The INDREDIBLE Floral Designs by Cindy, Cakes by Stef!, The World of Illumination, Cloth Connection, Party Rentals, ltd., Carolyn Stith of Bella Dia Custom Invitations, Laura Hooper Calligraphy, Media Worx, Carols Bakery, Signature Event Rentals and last by not least the talented and very helpful staff at The Chart House!

Beautiful Christening at Studio Square

Last weekend we had the pleasure of designing our first "real" event (ok so the kick off party was "real" but you know what I mean!) at Studio Square. It was a GORGEOUS and I mean GORGEOUS Christening for a lovely little boy. We created a modern but soft teal/aquamarine and chocolate brown color palate and it looked vibrant and fresh in the very white ballroom.

Special thank you's go out to....
Jeff Vock for shooting these amazing detail images. Glenn at Stem & Co for coming up with these sensational floral pieces for both the kids area (love those blocks!) and the adult section of the party. Jeanne Costello for the custom floor pillows for the kids and the beautiful decorative pillows around the room. Bella Dia Custom Invitations for the adorable but chic invitations and monogram design, Cloth Connection, Signature Event Rentals, Something Different Rentals, and last but certainly not least thank you to the worlds most professional man, Peter Fazio and staff at Sterling Affair for the amazing and delicious food. As always, your staff was on point, the food was sensational and your presentation was fantastic!
