Happy Holidays everyone! I wanted to take this time to wish everyone a wonderful and safe holiday season and a FAB new year! It's been a crazy year with this tough economy but the last few months of 2008 have proven to be a frenzy for new clients and some amazing new events that we've been fortunate enough to have been hired for in 2009 and 2010! To all our past clients from the year we appreciate your business, and to all our new clients we look forward to working with you over the next year or two!

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Rebecca & Andres

Christy recently was thrilled to work with Rebecca and Andres, they were THE sweetest couple! Christy and the couple started the planning process well over a year ago for their September 21, 2008 wedding. It was a smaller wedding and Christy said she had never met more gracious guests and family, it was just a pleasure. Cindy http://floraldesignsbycindy.com created the most gorgeous arrangments for her, Carolyn from http://belladia.com put together a stationery suite that had the guests raving from the moment the save the dates went out. World of Illumination http://worldofillumination.com helped create our orange and green theme with a gorgeous wash of color that changed after the entree was served.

Check out the slideshow by the one and only Henry Chan, he captured the emotion and feel of the day perfectly!

The Gals of Oh So Fab wish you and yours (I love saying that) a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We all have a lot to be thankful for, a new year coming, with a NEW Fab president, and hopefully positive changes to the economy!

I am thankful for my amazing family, and wonderful children. And I am grateful for my fantastic staff and of course where would I be without the support of my fabulous friends!

We have had a great year at oh so fab, it was a BIG year for change and for new opportunities in some really amazing high end TV shows and Magazines. We are looking forward to all the great events we are working on for 2009 and 2010 and we thank all of our clients and future clients for their unwavering support!

Here is what I am most thankful for. My beautiful babies who inspire me to be better and do more every single day....

I hope everyone enjoyed their day!

Bar Mitzvah Showcase

Today we were at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, NY all day for a Bar Mitzvah Event Showcase. It was a great day, our booth was buzzing all day long. We couldn't rest for a moment, as we had potential clients devouring our candy buffet and taking our water bottles all day. We met a lot of cool vendors and had a great turnout. Here are some pictures from the event. A special thanks goes out to Sharon and Jenn for staying there with me from 9am until 5pm! And to GG for creating the beautiful candy infused floral display that caught the attention of SO many potential clients! Also thank you to Carolyn of Bella-Dia Custom Invitations who cranked out the adorable water bottle labels and straw tags for us, AND to For Your Party for getting the candy bags to us so quickly!

Died and went to Pleasantdale Chateau

It's hard to believe that with all the gorgeous weddings we have planned over the years that we have never had the pleasure of working at the famous and absolutely stunning Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange, NJ. Well that is all about to change as we are designing a gorgeous event that will take place at The Chateau next June with our lovely couple Erica and Joe. Erica came to me before she event booked a venue and on a whim I said "Go see Pleasantdale" She pretty much booked the day she went on her first site visit and you can see why. It was great to meet Lisa who is amazing and we look forward to working at this historical and elegent venue next year!

Upcoming Press!

As usual, oh so fab is cranking out 3 more features in up and coming bridal magazines that will all hit stands in January.

First NJ Bride will feature Tina about wedding planning with some fun Q&A with Molly Tully, NJ Bride Editor.

Second, a lovely couple we worked with last Summer, Jill and Michael will have their wedding featured in the newly re-vamped Contemporary Bride Magazine. GG planned this beautiful event at The Palace at Somerset last August.

And finally we are SO excited about the National feature of the fantastic funky and fun centerpiece that GG and Tina created for Brides Magazine that will be a part of their next issue!


Just got word that three of our amazing weddings from this fall will ALL be featured in 2009

Our gorgeous wedding from October that we shot for Platinum Weddings will be featured in the one and only INSIDE WEDDINGS.

The Long Branch South Beach inspired wedding of Liz & Andy is getting picked up by The Knot AND the beautiful wedding of Lauren and Billy that Amy and Tina worked on for months at Skylands Manor will be a feature in the next issue of (201) Bride Magazine!

Nothing is more rewarding than a happy couple and then some well earned publicity in an amazing publication. We work so hard to make our client's happy and it's really the icing on the cake to be chosen to be a part of these great magazines!

A Beautiful Day at the NJ Botanical Gardens

WOW! Amy and I designed a gorgeous event on the 11th at Skylands Manor in Ringwood. I think it's safe to say that the room was COMPLETELY transformed and looked fabulous! Our clients wanted pink and purple and we gave them just that, with an infusion of butterflies in all the elements that were created by who else but Robin K Design! The weather was gorgeous, so the outdoor ceremony was really breath taking. The day was topped off with a spectacular coture cake designed by the one and only Ron Ben-Isreal. Special thanks to Joy Glenn Photography for snapping these great detail shots, Robin K Design for all the spectatular stationery, Jeanne Costello Designs for the fantastic draping and ceiling treatments, and World of Illumination for the professional lighting! And also thank you to Metropolitan Plant Exchange for stepping in late in the game to help out with flowers!

No one does the Jersey Shore like oh so fab...

Leave it to us to turn the good ol' Jersey Shore into somewhere as chic as South Beach! We recently did a gorgeous wedding for a fabulous couple, Liz & Andy, down at Avenue in Long Branch,NJ. The day was gorgeous, and the design was so much FUN! We loved the colors and enjoyed working in a really funky beach environment. Cindy Zack of Floral Designs by Cindy created STUNNING and completely drop-dead gorgeous arrangements for the day, omg, that Chuppah!!!!! Carol from A Starry Night really kept the music pumping all night long, and it was our pleasure to work with a new vendor Rock Mellon Videography. As always, thanks to our friend Carolyn at Bella Dia Custom Invitations who created a slew of amazing day of items to bring the look together!

Robin's Favorite Thing....

So recently we started *Your favorite oh so fab moment* with some of our absolutely amazing photographers that we often work with here at oh so fabulous. I wanted to also show you some of the favorite products from weddings we have collaborated on with our Custom Stationers. Robin Kornett of Robin K Design (no s in Design, people there is NO S lol) has shared her favorite invitation she created for us last year for one of our favorite couple's Grace and Joey Prudente.

Here is what Robin wrote:
I simply loved the invitation I designed for Grace and Joey......
I feel like they really set the tone for the wedding, and I was really proud of how we were able to generate that "wow" factor within Grace and Joey's budget. The whole design just flowed, from the brooch itself and how it was incorporated into the invitation, not just stuck randomly on there for decoration, and the fact that I designed it to be a wearable keepsake for all of their guests... to their names, which I embellished with swirls and scrolls by hand which set the stage for the elaborate "P" monogram I created for them later... to the colors, although neutral, still provided enough pop to make things interesting. This invitation design has since inspired other couples to follow suit, with different color schemes or design motifs, of course, to suit their own styles. It has become one of our most popular invitations, and anyone that walks into my studio always makes a comment about it. Definitely one of my favorites... if I was getting married again, I would probably go with Grace and Joey's design!

Thanks Robin. Your designs ALWAYS inspire and amaze us! Log on to www.ohsofab.com to see Grace & Joey's gorgeous wedding, which is also currently a featured wedding in the new issue of NJ Bride!

Lauren & Billy "Thai-ing The Knot"

We are pleased to present this gorgeous Thailand themed shower that we recently created for our clients Lauren and Billy who are getting married this October. Lauren's mother approached us and asked if we would design Lauren's shower because she wanted to make it really special and drop-dead gorgeous!

Amy and Tina had a ball with this! It was so fun and we were so inspired by all the bright colors and tropical flowers Thailand had to offer.
Special thanks to Taos Restaurant, Robin K Design, Floral Designs By Cindy that gorgeous CAKE design by Stefanie Sancho from Cakes By Stef! and of course, most importantly to Desiree from dmdc photography who took these amazing detail shots for us!
