  • Our wedding day was seriously the best day ever because of Kisha and her wonderful team! When we first met Kisha it wasn’t hard to make the decision to choose her to help in planning our wedding day. She is so sweet, easy to talk to, passionate about her work, and ORGANIZED! My husband and I got married at Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ. Kisha and her team transformed the venue and brought our dream of a fairytale wedding to life! We can be an indecisive couple but with the help of Kisha we were able to get through wedding planning with little stress and actually enjoy the experience. Kisha and her awesome assistant Belinda helped with all vendors, made to-do lists, set reminders, and helped us keep track of our budget. We told Kisha what we wanted and she gave us so much more! One thing I must say about K. Barner Events is that you must TRUST in their vision. You will not regret it! They know what they are doing! Months later we still have family, friends, and even people... Read more

  • Choosing Pure Ambiance Event Design for our wedding (5/14/16 at the Pleasantdale Chateau was THE BEST decision we have ever made. My Husband and I planned our wedding over a year in advance and Kisha and her team were there every step of the way! Not only did they choose the perfect vendors for us but they negotiated contracts and worked well within our budget! Their professionalism, kindness and compassion towards our wedding, their artistic touch with designing everything... all came down to a dream wedding that far exceeding what my Husband and I could have imagined. Our guests are still raving about how "it was the best wedding they have ever been to" and the majority of that is due to what Pure Ambiance did for us. We love them and now consider them friends and family and look forward to working with them on many more major events in our lives. We adore Pure Ambiance Event Design!

  • 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.

  • 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 whe... Read more

  • 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 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.

  • 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 appo... Read more

  • Kisha's enthusiasm, impeccable taste and guidance (with her wonderful Pure Ambiance team) helped to make my 40th birthday backyard bash a most memorable night - Despite rains and mud, or perhaps because of, her planning with tents and use of our indoor and outdoor space created a most cozy atmosphere where friends of ours from different parts of our lives "met and partied under the tents". I've already been asked for my party planner's name from multiple guests and I have gladly recommended Pure Ambiance to others as well. I look forward to working with her in the future to create more amazing events.

  • Pure Ambiance saved my sanity. I was finishing up a very intensive program, and the groom was working full time and finishing up school as well, so we had no time to plan. Kisha and her team helped us plan everything. They were very organized, professional and coordinated. They went out of their way to make sure that we got the best price on everything. They were simply wonderful and I highly recommend them.

  • My husband, Kevin and I met Kisha at a bridal show at the Addison Park. We were just at the beginning stages of planning the wedding and were semi unorganized and hadn't even thought of hiring a wedding planner. When we met Kisha, we were just starting to think about hotel accommodations for our guests and feeling a bit lost because we were both unfamiliar with what was available near the Addison Park. We scheduled an appointment with Kisha to just get a feel for what a planner could do for us. Before we even had our meeting or signed with Kisha she had already researched hotels in the area and e-mailed them to us. After the first 10 minutes of our meeting, Kevin and I knew we had to work Kisha into the budget and hire her. We chose the day of package which was perfect for us and our needs. However, Kisha went above and beyond what she was hired for. Kisha and I immediately hit it off and clicked as if we knew each other for years which made me feel extremely comfortable. Her ...

  • Kisha Barner and her staff made my day special and beautiful. From the moment I met Kisha I knew she was the one. My dreams became a reality. The day was problem free and I enjoyed my day. She handled every problem and organized every detail. If you want a classy beautiful wedding I definitely suggest you contact Pure Ambiance. "Class at its Best"

  • 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! Look... Read more

  • Kisha, Belinda and the pure ambiance team were great! Kisha understood my ideas from the beginning and made the wedding that was in my mind into reality. Her team is organized, 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 their seats!

  • This is probably one of the hardest “reviews” I have to write because I have positives and negatives to write about. So first let me start off with the positives. Kisha took a little break from setting up the ballroom to come upstairs and see me. I was very touched by that. I also have to say that having her assistant by my side all day was one of the best touches that she could have ever put on her services. Honestly, there was never a moment in which I was worried about ANYTHING because I knew her assistant was right there to take care of it. Having her there and having Kisha just a phone call away was so comforting that I have NO IDEA how brides do it WITHOUT a wedding planning service. I was able to relax and enjoy the moments without having to worry about ANYTHING going wrong. And then there was the ballroom. I still can’t believe how well every detail came together… the room was just “pure ambiance”… lol. EVERYONE we speak with mentions the room… EVERYONE. Fro... Read more

  • This is the only vendor than underwhelmed me with their services. It started in the beginning when it took days for Kisha & her assistant planner Megan to get back to emails but I chose to ignore the little red flag I felt in my gut… We technically hired her for “partial planning” b/c by the time I found her, I had already booked all the big pieces including: ceremony venue, officiant, reception venue, caterer, photographer, hair & make up. So the only vendors I needed some help with were the florist & the DJ. She included in her “partial planning” was the “event design” where she presented me with 3 options for flower arrangements, escort cards, etc. I DIYed most of the pieces for our wedding. Nothing she presented me with was anything I had never seen before on this website or wedding blogs but it fit with the overall look I wanted for our wedding. Either way, I knew I needed someone to set everything up & take everything down the day of the wedding. The day of the we... Read more
