It's been one year since THE BRIDAL PARTY opened for business. Time sure does fly! After 2 years of procrastination and apprehension we finally registered as an LLC July of 2007, however ... in hindsight the timing was perfect and our successes continue to humble me every single day. Our first year has truly been phenomenal, exceeding expectations, and we've had the pleasure of working with so many wonderful people. All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

THANK YOU to our clients who trusted us to help make their once-in-a-lifetime events as memorable and special as they could possibly be.

THANK YOU to our vendors who help build our reputation, ensure our clients are receiving the very best of service and keep our standards at the highest level of excellence.

THANK YOU to our assistants/staff who never cease going above and beyond for our clients. Your dedication is truly appreciated.

Our second year already looks promising! I don't want to spoil any surprises, but there will be quite a bit of growth and expansion for THE BRIDAL PARTY over the next 6 months. We are truly dedicated to our clients, therefore, it isn't possible for us to be stagnate and not roll with the punches. As a service provider, we are charged to be ahead of the game at all times in providing top-notch service, thus the only place to go from here is UP!

So, watch out world ... year #2, here we come!!

"Farm Sweet Farm" 1st Birthday Party

My husband and I celebrated our baby twins, Jonah & Gia's, 1st birthday with a "Farm Sweet Farm" party last weekend.  The party was held at our home (aka The Anderson Farm) and our closest family and friends excitedly attended.  Honestly it's still difficult for us to believe a full year has gone by since they entered our lives, but one thing was clear from the beginning --- we had a lot to celebrate and we intended to do just that!

Everyone had loads of fun; they would've partied until the cows came home if we let them.  And since the guests of honor LOVE animals, the theme proved to be absolutely perfect for them and their guests.  To most, I'm known for planning amazing weddings and bridal celebrations by means of THE BRIDAL PARTY, so it was really a lot of fun to step outside of my comfort zone and show off my versatility and range.  I can't deny, this was FUN!  I'm still quite "giddy" about it all.

Aidan & Jonathan: Enchanted Forest

We shared snapshots of our Enchanted Forestwedding just four days ago and somehow, SOMEWAY, professional photos became available last night!  (an unbelievable world record ... calling Guinness after the holiday)

As mentioned before, we were brought on to plan and execute this wedding just 3 months out, at which time 90% of the vendors and service providers had not been selected.  But I must say, we couldn't have had a better team of professionals bring this event to life if we'd started a year ago.  

The ceremony was held in the evening on the outdoor patio of Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, NJ.  On this brisk mid-November night, our teams successfully achieved a loving and warm ambiance by having clear tent wall covered by swags of 21-foot long fabric hung on the outer perimeter of the space.  This treatment allowed for the bride's dream of being married near nature but also kept the couple's beloved friends and family comfortable.  A blooming birch-branch …

Lola & Lekan: Golden Gala

We shared snapshots of our Golden Gala wedding last month, but now professional photos are in!

This season we've been extremely blessed with virtually perfect weather, and for this event it was no different.  A traditional Nigerian ceremony was held the day before, featuring a host of absolutely stunning elements of the bride and groom's African culture.  The traditional American ceremony, the next day, was held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Englewood followed by a really fun-loving reception at The Royal Manor in Garfield.  Almost 500 of the couple's family and friends partied into the night, enjoying a gorgeous mix of Nigerian and American culture ... plus our romantically designed "Sweets Sideboard" that followed their white, ivory and gold color scheme was a huge hit!

It was such a pleasure working with Lola and her family, which is why we couldn't wait to share some of the best moments of the beginning of her new life with Lekan below, tha…
