Falling For Pink Monkey

Is there anything more beautiful than New York City in the fall? Well maybe Pink Monkey Events fall weddings. This season lends itself to beautiful warm colors and unique elements that can only be used for a couple short months. Luckily for us September and October are our busiest months for weddings! After all who doesn’t love fall in New York? Luckily in New York the weather is still mild enough to have an outdoor event in October so you can enjoy the changing foliage around you. In this wedding we incorporated pinecones, pears and colored leaves in with the roses to embrace this wonderful season. Deep reds, browns and burnt orange made for a lovely color palette. A properly done fall theme never fails because the season is the essence of warmth, which seamlessly goes well with weddings!

Chic Arizona Weekend

Our latest destination wedding was nothing short of spectacular! The entire weekend was planned to be enjoyable for all the guests as well as the couple. From the time everyone arrived at the hotel to the final farewell brunch we made sure every detail was taken care of. Jacqueline and Kevin, are such a chic couple that me made sure these events reflected both their personalities and style. The weekend began with a sexy, outdoor welcome reception where the guests  enjoyed some light bites along with plenty of fun and yummy cocktails. Let’s not forget the homemade gelato station at the end of the night! We transformed the hotel’s pool area into a ultra trendy lounge for the guests to mingle and enjoy the first night of their wedding weekend. We played with blue colored lights to set the mood of this event. The following day was the ceremony that included the breathtaking views of Arizona as the backdrop which looked almost too beautiful to be real! We incorporated the theme of hot pinks, oranges and yellows in the ceremony with a beautiful and plush aisle of colorful rose petals. Another unique detail was the hanging crystals above the couple as they said their vows that caught the sunlight to create just enough sparkle. The fun continued at the end of the ceremony when the bride surprised the groom with a traditional 2nd line band for lead them into their cocktail and dinner reception. The chic theme of vibrant colors and playful textures made this reception one to remember. The décor matched both what the couple wanted as well as their destination which was so important to us. With warm and bright floral arrangements combined with tons of candles, this party combined style with fun effortlessly. This wedding would not have been the same without the outstanding photographs to remember it by. We love the photographer Sergio for totally capturing the entire vibe of this weekend! He understood our attention to detail and captured it with ease. We also want to thank the florist Avant-Garde for bringing all of the elements to this wedding to life with total sophistication and talent!

Broadway Bash

One of our most fun and creative events we worked on was Bebe’s Broadway Bat Mitzvah. Since Bebe is such a huge fan of Broadway it was only natural for us to make her the most creative Broadway themed bat mitzvah we could! We asked Bebe what all her favorite Broadway shows were, new or old, and incorporated each table centerpiece around each show. The centerpieces were created from life size mannequins that took this bat mitzvah to the next level. The centerpieces were the talk of the party and made Bebe’s party different than all others! We decided to use mini NYC taxis to create mini “BeBe Bills” that held the seating cards. Due to the fun décor, this event was a hit for the adults and the children. At Pink Monkey Events, our main priority is to make sure our clients are as happy as possible and we were so pleased to do that for Bebe. It meant so much to us when Bebe’s mom began to tear near the end of the party when telling us “it was the most incredible thing she ever saw and it was beyond what they were hoping for." After hearing this, we knew we did our job because we made Bebe’s dream party come true!
