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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!!!

Kisha & her team at Pure Ambiance created a magical wedding for my husband and I. They made the vision of our dream wedding a reality for us and our guests. Their attention to detail allowed me to be so relaxed that I actually took a nap on my wedding day after enjoying breakfast with my briesmaids! We are so greatful!

Kisha and her team are amazing! We're getting married in NJ but are living in Texas during the planning phase and were is desperate need of some help and guidance. Kisha and all of the girls are Helping to make our wedding dreams
Come true. Kisha has everything done on or ahead of schedule, is always available, is very reliable, and has such a great personality! The second we met Kisha we knew we had to book her. We can't wait for our wedding and are comforted by the fact that the big day, and all the days leading up to it, will be stress-free (which is priceless).
We just had our wedding and our guests could not stop raving about the decor, the vendors,the organization, the ease of the day and how much fun they had. Kisha, Tomyka, Nadya and Amanda have introducesd us to the most amazing vendors which not only enhanced our day but saved us a bunch of money (because Kisha has such a great working relationship with so many different people/companies). Kisha has been our advocate, negotiator , open ear to talk to, partner in crime, designer and best of all our friend. We will truly miss talking to her every single day and cannot thank her enough for making our wedding an event that our friends and family will talk about for years to come :)

Not to be dramatic, but Pure Ambiance was awesome!! Kisha and her team literally took care of everything. My wife and I are very laid back people, and really did not want to have to go through any of the stress or drama that can sometimes be associated with weddings. From the first time we sat down with Kisha, we got the feeling that we would never had to worry about that at all. She made us feel very comfortable and REALLY valued our input. When the wedding day actually came, everything was beautiful. Kisha and her team completely captured our garden themed wedding and reception to the letter.
The only thing that even came close to being a snag that day came when one of my groomsmen left half of his tux at the house over an hour away from the venue. Even then, the team went into action, finding a formal store nearby with the missing pieces AND keeping this news from the rest of the bridal party. It went so smoothly that my wife didn't find out until our honeymoon!
Looking back at our overall experience we could not have asked for anything more.
