The Wedding Industry hits Wall Street

Today is a very special day for anyone who works in the wedding biz. Our good friend and one of the talented Editors from The Knot, Rebecca Crumley, told me today that their CEO would be ringing the closing bell this afternoon down on Wall Street!
Congrats to The Knot on all your continued success!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I would like to take a moment to reflect on a crazy year in the industry. This past year when the economy tanked, many people in the biz got very concerned very quickly that this amazing work we did for clients would not have a place in the wedding world. This year proved to actually be one of oh so fab's most successful years, not only for press and featured weddings, but for growth both personally and professionally. And for that, I am thankful.

This Thanksgiving, I want to thank my family for always supporting me, my wonderful Husband and two beautiful children for being my reason to live...for my amazing network of girlfriends who have been nothing short of incredible and continue to touch my life every single day. And I especially want to thank my amazing and loyal staff, Christy, Allyson, GG, Jenn, Joanna and Sharon. You girls are simply the best. You've been there for some pretty amazing events this year, and in years past. I especially want to thank my "original three" GG, Christy and Al for being my steady fabbies through and through, knowing I can count on you is what helps me bring this company to the next level. To Jenn, Joanna and Sharon we are so glad you're on board with the team and look forward to many years of continued growth.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors we work with, and thank you to all the planners and designers out there who continue to inspire us to create amazing events.

And finally thank you to all our amazing clients, both past and present....thank you for entrusting us with one of the most important days of your lives, we are so honored to be a part of your wedding planning experience.

Here's to a wonderful Holiday Season, and we can't wait to ring in the new year with the most fabulous NYE event to date!

Enjoy this day and be thankful

Vintage Chic in Long Island

It's not every day that you get to have the pleasure of designing the wedding of the sister of one of your very close friends! Recently, my girlfriend Nicole from college recommended that her younger sister Brooke who I've known for years, hire oh so fab to help her and her mom bring together all the details for her November wedding. It was amazing how we pulled together all the colors and ideas that were swirling around Brooke's head! She had a vision of vintage inspired soft looks combined with a hip chic loungy feel which was brought to life in the GORGEOUS Temple Lawrence in Long Island. Here are a few (terrible) pictures I took with my little camera Sunday night, I will post pro pics when we get them! Brooke you looked gorgeous, and I wish you and Ronen all the luck in the world! Congrats to the new Dr and Mrs. Elefant!

Our Big Fat Fabulous Greek Wedding.....

It's not every day that we get to plan a wedding with a couple as gracious and sweet as Mariella and Mitch. Mariella came to us last year with two crinkly old fall leaves and paint chips. Yes I said paint chips. She had a vision, and she clearly had a color story! With the help of some of our favorite vendors we created an amazing design for Mariella and Mitch that intertwined her love of all things fall with her insatiable craving for bling, bling and more bling (my dream come true)
As you can see, the couple looked gorgeous and the backdrop of the fantastic over the top room design really helped set the tone for the guests as they partied it up Greek Style till after midnight the night of the wedding.
Special thanks to Milton Gil for providing us these lovely detail images, Floral Designs by Cindy for once again creating art out of flowers, Cloth Connection for all the 30 amazing custom linens (damn you oval tables!), Something Different Party Rentals, EventLights, Cakes by Stef (omg that cake!) Robin K Design, Laura Hooper Calligraphy, Jeanne Costello Designs (that room draping totally transformed the entire room!) and last but not least a special shout out to one of our great interns Jen who really truly did the work of 3 interns (literally) that day and was a true asset to the team.
You will see this baby in print soon, stay tuned and congrats to Mariella and Mitch!

My Best Friends Wedding....

I haven't blogged much about it, I've been super busy and I've been waiting for the right post to introduce you all to Jena my gorgeous bff who is getting married to Vinny next June. Besides being her Matron of Honor (oh am I really a Matron?) I am her bonafide wedding planner and I couldn't be happier.
Jena is lucky enough to have Christy working with us for the planning, she's known Christy since she came on board with oh so fab from the beginning and I am thrilled to have her on the team.

Recently we met with our floral designer Cindy Zach of Floral Designs by Cindy to see her gorgeous table top sample. We are so excited to work with this amazing color combo of navy, beigh and a pop of lavender. Thanks to Laura Hooper for the gorgeous menu sample!

Stay tuned for more posts about the wedding, it's going to be fab!!!

The Hottest Ticket In Town...

You have to love the hottest colors of the rainbow all rolled into one wedding. This was one of my most favorite color combo's we've ever done. We had the pleasure of designing the wedding for the ultra fabulous and totally chic Mr. and Mrs. Raheem and Tricia Brown, who came to us two years ago after seeing us on an episode of Wedding Central.
Believe it or not, these aren't even the professional pictures from their talented photographer Punam Bean, but rather a series of images from the bride's good friend Melanie Burge who was kind enough to allow me to use them on the blog. Thank you Melanie!
We will post Punam's images in a week or so, but in the meantime I had to get these images to you so you could see how outrageous the event was!
Special thanks to all our amazing vendors, it was a tough day but we made the room look amazing!
Thanks to: Stem & Co for the outrageous flowers, Bella Dia for the amazing custom day of stationery, Jeanne Costello Designs, World of illumination, Universal Light and Sound, DJ D-Nice, Party Rental ltd, Cloth Connection, Signature Event Rentals, Triumph Display Group, Wonderful Graffiti (you didn't even SEE the stuff we did with this, wait till we get Punam's pics!) Studio 450 , Cakes By Stef, Tony Santana Cigar Company , Sweet As a Cupcake, and last but certainly not least, to my very best friend Jena who worked this wedding with me (busy weekend for osf we were all at different events so when in need call on your BFF!) and she was INCREDIBLE, and to Jenny and Glenda our two fabulous interns who hauled you know what ALL day putting together these amazing favors, and helping pull it all together!
Congrats to Tricia and Raheem xoxo and enjoy Thailand!
