I seriously don't know how people can plan weddings without a planner. Sure it's do-able. But I was definitely the type of person that don't want my friends and family lifting a finger and scrambling to get centerpieces, napkins and flowers set up during the big day. I always thought I was very organized well-prepared, but everything just hit me on the last couple of months before the wedding. Luckily we found Kisha so our big day flowed FLAWLESSLY!
Meeting Kisha for the first time was just fabulous! She was very professional, friendly, and had a good sense of humor. My husband and I were more drawn to vendors that approached us in on personal level and Kisha was just like that! She listened to what we wanted, she asked all the right questions, and gave us such good advice with our wedding. There were so many moments during the planning when she made me realize different things we would've easily missed. The last month, things just got crazy for us but Kisha was there all the way. She answered my texts, emails, and calls immediately, and made sure we were right on track with our planning. Day, night, or dawn, I was impressed that she would always respond back so quickly!
Our wedding day was seriously the BEST DAY EVER. And Kisha and her fabulous assistant, Belinda, help make that happen. I especially liked how Kisha waited for the right moment to start the ceremony so late-comers won't see me in my dress while walking from the limo to the church. Belinda stayed with me and our bridal party in the cold rain. She held up my big gown so it won't get wet while holding an umbrella on top of my head as I took pictures. Our reception was just flawless, even looked better than what we anticipated. Two of our aunts were sick that night and they helped them up to our bridal suite and gave them Tums or tea, checking on them every now and then! Nurse-wedding-planners much? =)
These girls can do it all. We would highly recommend them =)
I have had the pleasure of working with Pure Ambiance on a couple different events. They have been professional, done a fantastic job, and created something spectacular and memorable. Both times, I didn't know exactly what I wanted. I just knew the colors and the overall feeling I wanted my guests to experience and both times, they knocked it out of the park! They're always coming up with ideas that are out of the box and isn't something you typically see. So many guests are wowed by everything and that's exactly what we wanted. Always a great experience with Kisha and her team. I will continue to use Pure Ambiance as my go-to Planners and Designers for any event I have coming up!
Kisha and her team did a beautiful job for our wedding! They made our lives much easier. Since we are business owners, it would of been impossible to plan a whole wedding by ourselves. I really don't know how any bride can do it by themselves! Kisha not only made our dream wedding come true but made it a million times better. We were able to enjoy the most important day of our lives and have fun because of Kisha and her team. I would highly recommend Pure Ambiance Event Design for any type of event; they were the best from day one to the day of my wedding. To walk in our venue room and see how incredible it looked was amazing and unforgettable. The way they got to know me and my husband's tastes and incorporate every detail about us into our wedding was amazing! Kisha and her team are definitely planning all our upcoming events in the future. We are so thankful to them forever and they are always going to be a big part of the most important day of our lives. Thank you so much Kisha & Pure Ambiance.

I am a pretty organized person, but when it came to finding a venue for my reception and ceremony, I was worried. I thought it would be best if I brought in someone to help find the perfect venue and hopefully save us money at the same time. Pure Ambiance did that for us. They researched and provided me with info needed on many venues. They visited the venues with us and saved us money per person. It was worth the headache it saved me and gave me time to focus on the fun stuff.
Pure Ambiance is simply amazing! They are:
P-Professional & Personable
U-Unique & creative with any event space and ideas
R-Radiant atmosphere provided
E- Enchanting & breathtaking.
Every detail is planned and executed to PERFECTION & tailor-made just for YOU and your guest!
Leaving memories that will be talked about for years to come! I am grateful that I was able to experience all of their work first hand!
For the past few years we have been hosting an event called "Girls Night Out" in Downtown Millburn. Every year our event has gotten better and better. This past spring we decided we were going to hire an Event Planner/Coordinator since our event has grown each year.
It was our pleasure to hire Kisha Barner from Pure Ambiance Event Design. I have had the experience to see Kisha and her team in action with some of my clients and was highly impressed by her professional staff, creativity and work ethics.
Working with Pure Ambiance helped our event become more successful than ever and we look forward to continuing to work with Pure Ambiance in the future for our Girls Night Out event and future events.
We would recommend Kisha and her staff to anyone looking for an Event Planner/Designer for any corporate, formal, or informal event and of course, a wedding.
Thank you Pure Ambiance to help make our Girls Night Out event a true success!
Kisha and the Pure Ambiance team have been absolutely amazing!!! Kisha has helped me with vendors and has offered great ideas for how to design my ceremony and reception. She has been so responsive to all of my e-mails and phone calls--always getting back to me within 24 hours. Go with Pure Ambiance because you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
If you are looking for perfection on your wedding day... choose Kisha and the Pure Ambiance Event Design team to help make all your wedding dreams come true. We found Kisha’s company online and we are SO happy that we contacted her. In our initial consultation, she was personable, professional and if possible, made me even more excited than I already was to get married to my then fiancé. We went with the Complete Package and worked with Kisha and team for about 15 months leading up to the wedding. Her team was extremely organized around monthly tasks to ensure that every detail was addressed and that every idea that we brainstormed somehow fit together seamlessly. She also sent out my wedding invitations, tracked my RSVP’s, attended every meeting with every vendor, managed the vendors, and managed our expectations, in addition to SO much more! The team made sure that EVERYTHING ran smoothly, from the time that we woke up until it was time to get on the bus at the end of the reception. They contacted all my vendors and confirmed all my details and even gave me a detailed timeline of all wedding events. The day was one that we will never forget; I got to be a stress-free Bride (they exist) and my husband, a happy Groom and we did not have a single worry that day and we owe it all to Kisha and the Pure Ambiance Event Design team.
I have to share the amazing experience my husband and I had with Pure Ambiance. At first, I was very worried about how to organize my wedding, since I'm not from this country and had nobody to help me. My life changed when I found Pure Ambiance! They not only referred me to great professionals, but also respected all of our ideas and made my dream wedding come true. I'm really thankful to the whole crew who made my day a stress free experience.

Kisha, Belinda and the pure ambiance team were great! Kisha understood my ideas from the begining and made the wedding that was in my mind into reality. Her team is oragnized, professional and on point.The vendors they use are also great, from flowers to rentals. The guests were so impressed with the look of the wedding, that they were taking pictures of the reception hall for 10minutes before evening taking thier seats!
I had the opportunity to see the Pure Ambiance team in action when I was a bridesmaid in a wedding that Kisha Barner, Owner, planned a year prior to me getting engaged. I had no idea just how reliable and resourceful Pure Ambiance was until I worked with them for my wedding.
Kisha Barner is amaze-balls! She is lovely, self-assured and inspiring. I appreciated her candor, taste level and ability to handle vendors with tactful assertiveness.
Pure Ambiance team did an amazing job from beginning to end. 6 months after getting engaged my husband and I were married. Working with Kisha we planned the wedding in a short time frame, on a budget, and did not miss a beat. This was the most stress free process I’ve ever experienced. As I was getting dressed on the day of the wedding, I remember being the most tranquil person in the bridal suite. Why? Because I knew the Pure Ambiance team was on top of everything.
The reception décor was resplendent. My husband and I were blown away when we walked into the reception venue. We were impressed with the level of detail and care the Pure Ambiance team took in executing what was the happiest day of our life together thus far. I can not thank them enough for taking great care of me, my husband, our bridal party and guests.
Thank you so much Kisha, Samantha and Belinda for being my everything!
When I left Vibe, I was so pleased, that I gave everything I had in my pocket at the time and still felt it wasn't enough. The level of customer service and the excellence and attention to detail shown by your Team, blew me away. People can't stop talking about the event and my family and I can't thank you enough! Even Robert was pleased and is looking forward to seeing our wedding unfold in a few months. You are great at what you do and I pray that God continues to stir your creativity and surround you with good people and that you are blessed beyond what you could ever imagine! We are a witness that God truly makes dreams come true... you guys helped us celebrate that with nothing more than PURE AMBIANCE!!
Our experience with Pure Ambiance was special from start to finish. Of course I was the typical nervous bride, worried about design, colors and most of all budget! Kisha and her team made our day beautiful! When we saw the lighting and the details of the linens and table settings we were blown away! I felt a special connection with Kisha and Tomyka because they always made me feel at ease and like everything was under control. Kisha made herself available throughout our planning stages whenever we needed her, she was always punctual, well organized and professional. Our design presentations were done impeccably and helped us to narrow down our themes, designs etc. The team thought of all those "little details" that a bride and groom some times forget. Even after the wedding was over- I was given directions by Tomyka on how to preserve my cake top for our 1st anniversary! I must admit I have been having separation anxiety because I miss the team so much since the wedding is over- they really felt like family. I would highly recommend Pure Ambiance Event Planning for anyone who wants an exquisite event!
Kisha & her team are amazing! From our initial consultation to our wedding day, Kisha was absolutely awesome to work with. Pure Ambiance's organization & attention to detail allowed my husband and I to have the perfect wedding day. Even the workers at the venue commented that they had never seen the ballroom styled so beautifully. Kisha understood my vision and the vibe I was going for and was able to execute our dream wedding flawlessly.
Best choice ever! Once I met Kisha I knew I wanted her and her team to plan my wedding. Kisha was very down to earth and easy to talk to. Throughout the whole process I was always well informed on what to do next and how. I must have text and email Kisha more than 50 times a day and she replied to each one promptly which I appreciated very much given the fact that I wasnt her only bride. Knowing that she was not only planning my wedding she always gave me her undivided attention while out and about choosing items for my venue. The day of my wedding was amazing "Kisha and her team were everywhere I turned. The decor at the venue was just Breathtaking and I was just in awe to see every detail the way she said it would be. Choosing Pure Ambiance to plan our wedding was the BEST decision that we made. I am forever grateful to the PA Team for making our dream come true!
Pure Ambiance executed my 25th birthday effortlessly!!! The decor, the venue, the one of a kind invitations, the awesome surprise celebrity guests, everythinggggg was above and beyond what i'd ever imagined! everything so so personal and mirrored exactly who i am and what i love! Kisha and her team are hands down the BEST in the industry!
From the moment I met Kisha, I knew exactly that I wanted her to help us plan our big day. She demonstrated the professionalism, industry knowledge, and "loving life" personality that I was looking for in a planner. She was so easy to chat with and she was just as excited about our big day as we were! And from the start of the planning process, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Kisha. She exceeded all of our expectations from the beginning. Our first step was to find the perfect venue. Kisha took us to the venues that we selected from a list of places she researched based on what we were looking for and our budget. She was right by our side when we walked into and picked our PERFECT wedding day venue. After we selected our venue, the next step was to select all of our vendors. I have to say that Kisha nailed it with every single vendor! From the stationary design, to the DJ, hair and makeup stylists, the Reverend, and to the florist - Kisha was there at every single appointment and every vendor was FANTASTIC! Kisha's relationships with these exceptional vendors is the reason our big day went so smooth. They all worked together flawlessly throughout the entire night! Kisha's team hit the ground running as soon as they arrived on the day of our wedding. They were there everywhere we looked quickly helping out with any request we needed. I have never met such sweet and kind-hearted girls like the Pure Ambiance Team. In addition to the amazing vendors Kisha helped us to select, she has an incredible ability to envision and execute a beautifully designed setting. On the day of our wedding, when my husband and I walked into the reception, we could not believe how beautiful everything looked. It was surreal how beautiful our reception looked, and we absolutely felt like we were living a fairytale. Our wedding looked and felt so uniquely beautiful because of Kisha. Our wedding was flawless, and I would not change a single aspect of it! She knows exactly what she's doing and will give any bride and groom a PERFECT wedding day no matter what they are looking for. You absolutely must choose Kisha as she is the absolute best in the industry! Thank you soooo much, Kisha!!"
I hope this is good enough and expresses how thankful I am to have had you there to help me plan our wedding! I really could not have done it without you, Kisha! And I am sooo sad that it's over. I will miss you so much as you have been such an incredible part of our lives. I don't know how many times Gus has said how incredibly happy he was and how perfect our wedding day was! He's a tough guy to please and you made him sooooo happy!!! I am getting all emotional now so I will stop, but I really appreciate everything you did for us and I really really really would not change any part of our wedding. I can't wait to see your baby!! Best of luck to you and your family and to Pure Ambiance! You have created such an extraordinary business and it must feel so incredible to make people feel this happy!
OMG… I can't believe that i even gave having a wedding planner a second thought. I don't know what I would have done without Kisha and the Pure Ambiance team.
I decided that I wanted to have an outdoor wedding in the middle of the summer. The weather should be nice just the chance of it raining. Well the day finally came is there was forecast of a chance of thunderstorms but we werent sure what time it would start. I texted Kisha early in the morning and told her asked her to look into getting a tent. within 1 hour Kisha did her research and reached out to a few companies to get me a tent.
I was getting dressed at the hotel with another PA member while Kisha was at the park setting up. Well of course it began to rain, yet Kisha and her team kept me calm and made me believe that I didnt have to worry about anything. She was able to move the ceremony to a new location within 2 hours of the starting time. The ceremony was beautiful as if it was planned for months. And when I walked into the reception room I couldnt believe it was so beautiful. The entire design concept Kisha came up with was georgeous! I received so many compliments about my wedding day and none of it would have been executed if it wasnt for the Pure Ambiance Team!!!
Thank you for all that you did - seen and unseen- to make our wedding so very magical. From start to finish, your professionalism and poise gave us great confidence that we were safe in your hands. You took the few ideas we had and turned them into a dream come true. Despite the mud and the humidity, we will always cherish our big day and the beauty that surrounded us. We couldn't of done it without you! Many thanks to you and your team.
With sincerity and joy,
Allison and Mike
The planner is very nice but she fell short of what a wedding planner should be. I felt she was not as detail-oriented as what a planner should be.
