Beautiful New Professional Images

Thanks to Marie Labbancz for these beautiful images of the classic and sophisticated wedding of Lina and Charlie this month at The Venetian. The event was designed by Christy with the help of Floral Designs by Cindy, Laura Hooper Calligraphy, Party Rental ltd. , and The Cloth Connection. This event was filled with special vintage touches and some very personal and culturally important Portugese traditions as both the bride and groom have roots in Portugal.

Well, I must say I am super excited to announce yet another oh so fabulous production that will be featured in another magazine spread this year!

The adorable, warm & fuzzy Cape May wedding of Michelle and Paul this October will be featured in the Summer 2010 issue of (201) Bride Magazine.

This couple was simply amazing, probably the most laid back couple we've ever worked with. We wish them nothing but the best and we can't wait to see the spread in the coming months.

Special thanks to Desiree at DMCD Photography for capturing the most gorgeous images of the day, our very own GG for the amazing floral design, and Laura Hooper Calligraphy for the custom , well EVERYTHING!

NEW PRESS: Favors favors favors!!!

We were delighted to collaborate with Laura Adams, Editor of (201) Bride Magazine on this fun styling project. The challenge? Find a way to make three very common, humdrum everyday edible items into something interesting and unique for your guests to take away at the end of the night. I am a strong believer in usable favors, which usually translates into anything you can eat or drink. So our solution was to come up with three different favors, and show you how to showcase them in two very different ways.
I have to thank my ingenious and forward thinking staff, especially GG for going on a mission through the streets of Bergen County hunting down cool favor packaging with one condition from yours truly "Don't come back with anythign we've used before, get CREATIVE" and that she did! She went everywhere from Home Depot to the Container Store and just about everywhere in between. What an amazing result! Jenn was my style maven who stepped in to really help make them look outrageous at the photo shoot.
Special thanks to Photography By Rebecca for the beautiful shots, Carolyn at Bella Dia Custom Invitations for the adorable hang tags etc. and to Laura Adams for allowing us to flex our creative muscles and bring this great favor story to life!

Let's Find a Cure

For all of you on Facebook, here is a chance for you to be a part of something really incredible. One of our planners, Allyson, lost her nephew Owen to a terrible disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is the #1 killer of children under the age of two. Chase Community Giving is donating $1 million dollars to the most votes, but hurry voting ends on January 22nd

If you are on Facebook please visit http://voteforsma.com/ and cast your vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, to help us achieve this wonderful goal of $1 million dollars toward a cure for this awful disease.

All the time spent on Facebook writing on walls and updating status' this only takes a minute. We are close to discovering a cure for SMA, so do it for Owen and all the other children suffering from this cruel disease.

A wonderful "marriage" of vendors!

We are beyond delighted to announce the brand spanking new relationship between oh so fabulous and one of the most beautiful and successful event spaces in NJ, The Estate at Florentine Gardens.

We are so excited to be a part of this family of professionals, as we will be the recommended event designer on their recommended vendor list. We have been approached by several venues to get on board as a recommended vendor, but we've always been very careful as to make sure we associated our brand with venue that had a great reputation in this very unforgiving industry.

After the amazing event New Year's Eve, we can't wait to get in there and design tons and tons more!

Here's to a successful 2010 and beyond!

Dare I say it...EVEN MORE PRESS!

Today we were delighted to find out that the beautiful over the top Greek Extravaganza that we designed for the adorable Mariella and Mitch who were married this past October at Naninas in the Park. The wedding will be featured in the upcoming issue of NJ Bride
....And to boot another amazing wedding (one of my faves) that we designed for Tiffany and Matt at The Chart House in September is being picked up for the following issue in NJ Bride!

And last but CERTAINLY not least we are THRILLED to announce that the gorgeous wedding of Tricia and Raheem at Studio 450 this past November is going to be in the next issue of the one and only Inside Weddings magazine.

We are so excited and appreciative that these amazing editors have given us these wonderful opportunities to be a part of their very highly regarded publications!

Stay Tuned!!!

Hello 2010!

What better way to end a great year than with a fabulous wedding..and I can't think of a better way to start a new year than with another fabulous event!

Christy designed a gorgeous, vintage inspired event for Lina and Charlie, a beautiful couple that she's been working with since the Spring. The event was at The Venetian, in their new gorgeous ballroom. We love working here and the staff is always so great!

Christy created a black/white/silver color story with lots of hand written calligraphy from Laura Hooper, and plenty of bling from none other than the one and only Floral Designs by Cindy.

With beautifully rouched white pintuck overlays from The Cloth Connection, tall crystal glass vases with crystals and tiny touches of pink and green, Lina's vision was brought to life with the help of Chrsity. The strong and unexpected black chivari chairs with pewter cushions helped make the pinks and greens pop, and the soft and elegant classic glass chargers with silver beads from Party Rental, ltd really completed the design!

Pro images to come soon! Congrats to Lina and Charlie!

Happy New Year!

Well it is a new year and we already have a beautiful new wedding to show you! Thursday night, we had the pleasure of ringing in the new year with one of the most adorable and gracious couples we've ever had the honor or working with, Marissa and Marcus! This couple was super fun and trusted us 100% to make their black and white New Year's Eve vision come to life. Over a year ago, we presented them with the idea of black and white damask....a year later it started popping up everywhere so we tried hard to really make the design stand out and used fun and non floral props like lamps (I mean literally from Homegoods people!) and lots of damask fabric in our design. We turned up the color with pops or red/burgundy/hot pink ONLY in the flowers and room lighting. The big fun surprise of the night was a custom cigar heated cigar lounge we put outside that Marissa surprised Marcus with after midnight. He went absolutely nuts and so did the guests. I have never seen so many people enjoying cigars as I did this night! Such a great way to ring in the new year!

A very special big oh so fab thank you to:

The Estate at Florentine Gardens, Noelle, Sal, Patrick, Denise and all your amazing staff, thanks for making us feel like a part of the family! Cakes By Stef!, Laura Hooper Calligraphy, EventLights, Cloth Connection, Something Different Party Rentals, Photography By Rebecca, Darling Occassions (for the amazing custom damask pillows, cake stand, and so many other cool details) Tony Santana Cigar Company, Valley Tent Rentals, Toppers With Glitz, Signature Event Rentals, Creations Music (Kim Sozzi you ROCK) and to Alison who was on top of it all night long, and to our three great interns, Jenny, Glenda and our "little Sarah" Leann! Thanks for really bringing this very hectic night together.
I wanted to give a special shout out to Mary Mazzone, cousin of our bride and her company Ciao Bella Floral Design....she gave Marissa the most amazing gift of her time and skills as an amazing floral designer and she worked up until about 1 hour before the reception started as her florist and then changed her clothes and returned as her cousin to the wedding! Mary I hope this is the start of something huge for you, you are very talented and your work is amazing, it was such a pleasure collaborating with you on this fun venture!! xoxoxo
