Day-Of Coordination, Full Service Wedding Planning, Planning
My wife and I were married at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange, NJ. Pure Ambiance planned the most AMAZING wedding you could imagine. Kisha Barner and her assistant, Belinda Rosario, are two of the most perceptive people I've ever met. When we met the first time, Kisha asked us about ourselves, each other, what we liked, and what we were looking for. She then used a method whereby we would meet with three of a given type of vendor at a time, which kept us from feeling overwhelmed. If none was what we were looking for, we'd have met with more. But each time we were able to choose vendors in each category that we were really in tune with, and were actually almost as perceptive as Kisha and Belinda in figuring out what we wanted. And we were really happy with our choices. Kisha and Belinda deal on all levels too, continually keeping us up to date on vendor meetings and attending those visits with us and providing a to-do list to help us keep track of all the details. They will also work with you in budget planning, i.e., tracking your layouts versus the budget you've set for your event. And they are people who cared not just about our event, but us too, offering helpful advice and counsel in navigating the road toward our wedding, always there to answer questions. And on the day of the wedding, it could not have been more stress-free for us. Kisha and her team were right on top of everything and were there for us at every turn. The vendors we picked made this a gorgeous wedding and performed their services so well, it was beyond anything we'd expected, thanks to Kisha and her ability to find the right people for the right jobs. We are so happy that we picked PA, and now we're blessed and privileged to call Kisha and Belinda friends.
My Wedding Day was on May 14, 216 at the Pleasantdale Chateau. I am truly convinced that the reason I had a fantastic time (as did my Husband) is because of Kisha Barner and her team at Pure Ambiance Event Design. We planned our wedding over a year in advance and Kisha and her team have been with us every step of the way. We are so grateful that we chose them not only due to their Professionalism but they chose THE BEST vendors for us, they created a magical wedding beyond what we could have dreamed of, they worked well within our budget and because of them... our guests were blown away at our wedding! We now consider them friends/family and I look forward to choosing them again with other major celebrations in our life! Choosing Pure Ambiance Even Design was by far THE BEST decision I have ever made!
Kisha and her team are excellent! They were well organized throughout the entire process and quick to reply to any request or question we may have. For many of my friends, the week or two before their weddings was extremely stressful, but with Pure Ambiance, I didn't have to worry about anything and just showed up the day of and they took care of the rest. I highly recommend Pure Ambiance and would certainty use them again in the future for any big event we might have.
Best Wedding Planner!Reviewed on 10/31/2014
My wedding day was the best day of my life. Working with Kisha and Pure Ambiance was a great experience. We enjoyed working with them and the planning was so simple and stress free with their help. They recommended the perfect vendors for us, came up with a beautiful design, and kept everything going on time and perfectly on our day. Kisha and Pure Ambiance helped make our wedding the best day of our lives! I refer to them as the best Wedding Planners because they are - everyone deserves to experience Pure Ambiance.

I have utlized the services of Pure Ambiance COUNTLESS times and each time is simply wonderful! There's nothing like adding "Pure Ambiance" to your event... this is an AMAZING Wedding & Event Planning company! The WHOLE team goes beyond your wildest expectations to create memorable events. Anytime I need an event planned and designed, they're the first people I call, so when I needed a Sweet Sixteen planned in under 30 days, I called Kisha right away. What they delivered was nothing short of what they deliver each time - PERFECTION! Thanks again Kisha & the entire Pure Ambiance team.
Can't even imagine my wedding without Kisha & Pure Ambiance!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
I honestly can't imagine having gotten married without Kisha and her team. Kisha and Pure Ambiance were highly recommended to my Husband by a co-worker who had used them for her wedding. Beyond helping with the logistics and coordination of a wedding event, we hired Kisha & Pure Ambiance foremost because of their creativity and ability to design, capture, and bring to life the ideas that you just envision in your head. Kisha knows it's the tiny details that make a difference and she is a perfectionist! Thanks Kisha (and Belinda, and rest of PA team)! -Jane
Our vision was brought to life!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
We recently got married on September 13th at the Manhattan Penthouse in NYC. Kisha really helped realize our vision so that our wedding was both beautiful, memorable, and fun. Ask anyone of our guests and they said they had blast. Plus, she and her team made our lives so much easier taking us through arduous process known as wedding planning, recommending vendors, providing checklists, and making all our thoughts into reality. I would definitely recommend having Kisha and her team as a wedding planner. -Brian
Pure Ambiance - The Best in the Business!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Leslie S
My wife and I held our wedding at the Venetian in Garfield, NJ on February 22, 2014. Kisha from Pure Ambiance was our planner throughout the process. To say that she did an amazing job does not adequately explain how pleased we were with her services. You can tell that she has a passion for her work and takes pride in making the event the absolute best that it can be. Looking back at all of the cost associated with our wedding, I'm glad that we spent the money and hired Pure Ambiance to help plan our special event. They helped make what would have otherwise been a good wedding, a great one! From Kisha's advice on our decor to her actual management of the ceremony and reception, she always went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Thanks Kisha and Pure Ambiance for making our wedding so spectacular!! Our friends and family are still talking about it to this day!
2x Customer - thrilled!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
For the 2nd year in a row, Downtown Millburn utilized the services of Kisha & the Pure Ambiance team to plan, organize and execute our annual Girls Night Out event for the town of Millburn, NJ. This year's event was bigger and better. With the help of Pure Ambiance we were able to implement new ideas, activities, procedures, etc. Pure Ambiance worked with the Downtown Millburn Board Members with ease. Ironically, I ran into a wedding client of Pure Ambiance while handing out flyers in town, and all they could do was rave about them. We enjoy working with Pure Ambiance and will continue to do so!
My wife was right!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
When my wife and I started planning for our wedding she said that we needed a wedding planner. I thought "for what? All we need to do is find a venue for the reception, send out invitations, get a dress, a tux and everything else would fall into place." Well, little did I know planning a wedding would entail sooooo much more! Kisha and her team at Pure Ambiance Event Design allowed for our wedding day to be one of the best days of my life! From the moment we started planning I knew that we were going to having a wedding that would be unmatched by any other wedding I had attended-and I was right on! My family and co-workers still tell me how great of a time they had. The ambiance, the décor, the ease and flow of the entire day was due to the professionalism and expertise of Pure Ambiance Event Design! I am not ashamed to say......My wife was right!!! Steve Mason
Couldn't have done it without her!Reviewed on 10/06/2014 Jessica H
I recently had to put my wedding on hold, for a medical reason, so I have not had the opportunity to work with Pure Ambiance on my actual wedding day. Despite this, I KNOW they would have been amazing because working with them for the past several months throughout the design and planning process, has been wonderful. Without Kisha, this entire process would have been so stressful. She has helped out with so much - giving great advice, beautiful design ideas, problem solving and more. I do not know what I would have done without her. Best investment and I can't wait until I can have my wedding and have them there with me! Thank you for all you have done Kisha and Pure Ambiance!
Incredible!!!!Reviewed on 10/06/2014
Incredible!!! First word that comes to my mind about Kisha and her Pure Ambiance team --Kisha has helped me over the last five years plan two wonderful backyard 40th birthday parties for myself and my husband and, most recently, she helped me plan my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. Boy, did, she put her heart and soul into it!! From the initial narrowing down of the theme and colors to visiting the party site with me and planning the layout of the room to her wonderful vendor contacts to the minor details she and her team put into the presentation of the centerpieces / lounge furniture/ table and chair choices/ bar options/ party favors/attention to our budget and guidance in the timeline of the whole day, they were incredible. Her responsiveness to my multiple emails, texts and phone calls over the last few months was unbelievable. Kisha's vision of how the room could look was right on the money!!! I went to my daughter's morning service while Kisha and her team set up the room and we came back to a transformed temple ballroom ---- my daughter was on cloud nine!!! Multiple guests came up to me during the party to ask who had helped me and I was even told by one woman who had attended multiple parties over the years in that space that it had never looked that wonderful --- the day went seamlessly and Kisha, Belinda and her team were overseeing the whole time behind the scenes. I don't know how to thank you, Kisha --- I'm planning to call and book the date I just received for my younger daughters' Bat Mitzvah in 2017!!!
Pure Perfection!Reviewed on 9/06/2014 Cassandra H
Kisha & the Pure Ambiance team allowed me and my husband to have the best wedding day ever! Kisha was able to bring our vision to life better than we could have ever imagined. She was readily available to give advice, make suggestions, and always give her honest opinion along the wedding planning journey. I was so relaxed on our wedding day because I knew that Kisha had everything in order. Belinda was extremely helpful steaming dresses, running errands and keeping us right on schedule.....I don't know what I would have done without her! Thanks PA for your vision, professionalism, and hard work! I highly recommend Kisha & Pure Ambiance for your next event.
Needed help and I got itReviewed on 10/06/2013
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.
Amazing team with out of the box ideasReviewed on 10/06/2013
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!
Simply AmazingReviewed on 10/06/2013

Amazing & unforgettable... forever grateful!Reviewed on 10/04/2013
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. -Andrea & Elvin L.
Would highly recommend!Reviewed on 10/04/2013
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!
Pure Ambiance is Awesome!!Reviewed on 10/04/2013 Stephanie R
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!!!!
Stress-free Brides do exist!! I'm proof!Reviewed on 10/04/2013 Kamille R
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.
Stress-free, AMAZING experienceReviewed on 10/02/2013 Thais T
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. ~Thais & Jermaine T.

An amazing wedding, a stress free process and the best wedding planner - ever!Reviewed on 9/25/2013 Rosie E
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!
Our Wedding = BEST DAY EVER!Reviewed on 7/08/2013 Gwen Q
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 =)
Best Wedding & Event Planner!Reviewed on 11/07/2012 Sandra M
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!!
