Hong Kong by way of New Jersey continues...

Hello Everyone,

Now that a few weeks have passed, I would like to look back and revisit the May 2, 2009 wedding of our most wonderful clients, Denise and Henry from Hong Kong. This couple had a traditional Chinese Wedding to including a Tea Ceremony, honoring their elders before their banquet.

First off, I would like to thank the wonderful team of vendors who worked with me to make this day possible. Special thanks to Jorge Garcia (Jorge Garcia Photography), Janice and Mike Celeste (Celeste Studios), and Lisa Miller for the catering service.

For this wedding, we at À Votre Service Events not only took care of coordinating all wedding details, but we also took care of all floral arrangements from the personal flowers to the towing 6-7ft Cherry Blossom centerpieces.

As one will see from the pictures, Jorge is an amazing photographer and just a wonderful talent. I look forward to working with him on many more events. Please visit our website for more photos (

Fantastic NAWBO-CJ Board Meeting...

Happy Friday,

Today was a wonderful day of networking, learning, just a wonderful day hanging out with my fellow Board members of the Central New Jersey Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-CJ).

This national association is made up of over 9,000 dynamic women business owners from all walks of life. Because NAWBO is so diverse, it is networking, nurturing, and support for other business owners at its best!
While this non-profit organization is a great resource for start-ups, it also consist of women business owners whose companies generate millions in Capital yearly! This organization supports emerging entrepreneurs' development through various programs and initiatives.

Having joined this organization, I am seeing first hand what women are capable of. When we put our heads together with common purpose towards personal growth, we can also serve as a great resource and support system for one another.

In this time of economic uncertainty, the members of the Board, as well as all NAWBO-CJ members, provide me with a sense of optimism and excitement about the future!

Everyone, meet Tammy and Tony!

Happy Mother's Day!

Today, I would like to introduce the Lovely Tammy, and her oh-so-kind Fiance Tony. A little while back, I received another wonderful surprise in the mail, the couple's save-the-date shown above.

A little about Tammy (affectionately known as Tam)... I still remember the very first day Tam and I met. She and I had been communicating for a while over the telephone, discussing her wedding plans. A few weeks later, finally the day came when Tammy and I met in person. What never left me was the warmth with which Tammy greeted me. It felt like we had been friends for years. At that moment, it was clear what a lovely, and generous soul Tammy is, and I was all the more excited about her wedding.

Tammy and Tony are a beautiful example of the coming together of family and culture. For her wedding colors, Tammy chose deep red, orange, copper tones, with hints of ivory. For their venue, the couple chose a swank Supper Club. A Flamenco guitarist will jazz up the ceremony; Nick Russo and band will perform for the cocktail hour, and a phenomenal bilingual DJ to round out the evening. For ambiance, the couple envision something casual yet super chic.
Tammy and Tony's wedding is only 7 weeks away, and what a party their affair is going to be!

I feel fortunate that we at Á Votre Service Events were chosen to bear witness to this union!
