Review of Peter James
My wife and I worked with Peter James of Couture Events for the flowers and decor at our recent wedding. We originally met Peter James early on in our wedding planning at our caterer’s tasting where he was gracious enough to invite us to sit with him (as well as recommend several different wedding services to us which we ended up using and loving). From our first meeting with him, he put our minds at ease and made the whole process as easy as possible for us. As someone who knows nothing about flowers, I was able to point to one picture and from that he was able to create the most beautiful bouquets and flower arrangements that were absolutely perfect for us and everything I never knew I wanted. When we finally saw our venue the day of our wedding everything looked stunning. He was even able to incorporate a few odds and ends of our own flawlessly into his design of the venue. Overall, I would encourage anyone to use Peter James while planning an event; he is a true professional, a delight to work with, and has become a good friend.Sent on 11/14/2019

Absolute Perfection in Asbury Park!
From the moment you speak to or meet Peter James, you know that you have chosen the ONE to assist you with your wedding planning needs! Wedding planning can be a stressful time but Peter immediately set us at ease.Sent on 10/15/2019
He was absolutely a professional and a joy to work with! I was greatly impressed with his expertise across multiple areas. Not only did he do an amazing job with the floral arrangements, his recommendations for other needs ( cake, transportation, etc.) were perfect. Everything that was planned worked out without a glitch! I highly recommend Couture Events for wedding planning or any other special events! It was Absolute Perfection in AP!

Best Wedding Coordinator/ Planner - Period
We HIGHLY recommend Peter and his creative team at Couture Events of New Jersey in making your vision a reality. Not only did Peter respond almost immediately to texts, calls and emails during the 7 month planning process, but Jim and Peter also met us multiple times at our 2 venues - hours away from their home base. They also recommended the most amazing make-up artist and helped find a hair stylist at the last minute when ours backed out. On the day of the wedding, we trusted Peter's ability to ensure everything was perfect, so we left our cell phones in our room to enjoy the day without a concern. From our eyes, everything was flawless - no easy task as we booked 2 venues, including a yacht with prompt boarding / debarking times. In the end, our guests described our wedding as: "epic" and "out of a magazine" - to which we agree!!! THANK YOU PETER, JIM and COUTURE EVENTS OF NEW JERSEY!!!Sent on 10/05/2019
Couture Events of New Jersey's reply:Selma and Chris...I truly knew from that first meeting at The Chart house...your reception venue...that I could help you create that "epic" wedding. Adding in a ceremony aboard a yacht "parked" in front of the Statue of Liberty was truly an experience for everyone in involved. In my heart I know that our paths will always cross in the strange crazy world and look forward to it.

Absolutely Beautiful Flowers
I worked with Peter James of Couture Events this spring for my daughter's bridal shower and for her wedding which just took place on 8/16/19. For both occasions, Peter's creations were outstanding. He is a true artist who listened to us as we explained our "vision" and who also offered his own ideas and suggestions to bring our vision to life. The end results were so much more than I could have ever imagined. He created beautiful bridal bouquets, table centerpieces, ceremony decorations and so much more. His attention to detail was impeccable. He communicated with us every step of the way. I very highly recommend Peter James of Couture Events. He is a wonderful floral designer!Sent on 08/30/2019
Christina · Married on 08/16/2019
Peter James went above and beyond for our wedding! I had an abstract idea of what I wanted and he was basically able to extract it from my brain (even when it was difficult for me to articulate at times) and transform it into reality! Needless to say, we absolutely loved our floral arrangements for both our wedding and for my bridal shower. Not only was his artistry fantastic, but Peter was also a true pleasure to work with. He’s personable and funny and it shows that he’s genuinely passionate about what he does. He was responsive with our communications and mobilized fast for last minute edits. He makes you feel like he’s got it all under control (which is comforting for any bride to be). I would recommend Peter James and Couture Events of NJ without reservation and can personally say that I plan to seek his services for future events!Sent on 09/15/2019
Couture Events of New Jersey's reply:Thank You Christina . It was such a pleasure working with you and your Mom...and you made my life easy by trusting us to deliver the best day you could have. I look forward to working any time with you in the future..all my Best always

Fantastic planning services!
Peter and Jim were both absolutely amazing leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Peter was very good about keeping me on track with my planning and always helpful and quick when responding to my questions and concerns. On the day of, both were in constant communication with each other and our vendors while making sure that our day was exactly what we dreamed of. They truly were a huge reason why our day turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you both!Sent on 08/08/2019

Our Wedding 3/30/19
Peter from Couture Events was amazing! One phrase comes to mind when I think of Couture Events and that’s “peace of mind.” My husband and I first met Peter at a wedding expo, he was very nice and knowledgeable, and we immediately liked him. We made an appointment with him that very week to discuss everything in a little more detail. At first I had no clue what kind of flowers I wanted for my wedding, so when we sat down with him I told him what my wedding colors were and from that point forward, he blew us away. He planned everything from start to finish and while he always sought our approval, the man knows what he’s doing, we rarely went against his advice, and I’m thankful for that. The flowers and center pieces were absolutely stunning! My favorite color is blue and he found me these incredible blue orchids that matched my bridesmaid’s dresses perfectly. I have never seen such beautiful flowers and while I did check out a few other florists prior to meeting with Peter, nobody showed us anything close to these. He themed those orchids into everything at our wedding: our centerpieces, all the bouquets, boutonnieres, alter pieces, and flowers for my hair. All my guests commented on how beautiful everything was. Based solely on the quality of his product, I’d recommend him to anyone. On top of that, Peter is just a GREAT guy to work with. He’s extremely flexible and he was a ray of sunshine the day of our wedding. He came to the hotel that my husband and I were staying at to drop off the flowers. He gave us words of encouragement, a much needed hug, and instructed the bridal party how to hold our flowers throughout the ceremony.
When we were at our venue taking pictures before the ceremony started, he was there helping set up the center pieces. Every once in a while I would catch him giving me a thumbs up or mouthing gorgeous or reminding me to bring my flowers lower, in a very funny way that you will only get to know if you work with him. We met with Peter the week before our wedding to ensure everything was in place and when we walked into his office, he had our centerpieces all set up, exactly as they will look on the day of our wedding. I can’t tell you how nice that was, it just put our minds at ease, “This guy is ready for our wedding, no need to worry here.” Here’s my advice to anyone planning a wedding: Choose the vendors that gives you peace of mind, the ones that you know will deliver on their promises on your big day. With that in mind, we highly recommend Couture Events! If we do any major events in the future, we will definitely be going to Peter again.

Bride - Lauren
I met Peter at a bridal show as a newly engaged 26 year old, with no idea as to how much work and planning a wedding was going to be. After my first meeting with him I knew instantly he was a necessity to planning and was going to take so much work off my fiancé and I. Peter made the process simple by trying to simplify each vendor. He would tell us a little about each, choose his top two or three and set up all our meetings. This helped by not having too many options and getting overwhelmed. Early on in the process it was apparent Peter was more than just a planner, he truly was a friend to us. If we were out for many hours we would grab lunch and it always was a fun day when we were together.
Photography, DJ, and venue were all quickly picked. Whenever we were at a meeting Peter seemed to read my mind when I was unsure about something and asked all the questions we did not know to ask. This made choosing details and pricing easier. Peter also was my florist which he KILLED it with. My bouquet was beautiful and he also decorated the ceremony with beautiful lanterns, and a beautiful arch. Peter’s background was working in the floral industry before Couture Events so he is a pro there and has been dealing with events for years.
The week of the wedding the stress really kicked in and he made sure to call me and check if everything was going well for us. He even came to our rehearsal and made a surprise visit with a beautiful arrangement! When the wedding day finally came he was there bright and early with his team of assistants. They took care of every detail from bringing my homemade decorations, making sure groomsmen left on time, escorting grandmas in, and just being there for Tom, I and both our families. There is no price you can put on having someone like Peter for your wedding. Planning and getting ready for one of the biggest days of your life can be so overwhelming and when you have a set team of people to help you along the way, it really does help every detail come together. I can’t recommend Couture Events enough and am so thankful to you all for making my wedding everything I ever imagined. I love you guys!Sent on 03/15/2019
Couture Events of New Jersey's reply:Your words are more beautiful than I can reply...does that make any sense?.... to me it does. To my clients and friends thank you for choosing us to be honored and part of your beautiful day.

Perfect choice from the start! Wish I had him for my wedding!
Peter gets it. He really makes the whole planning processes an enjoyable one. He's extremely fun to work with, very professional and detailed to the finest point. His assortment and products he uses, make any event he touches, magical. He follows up immediately, answers all your questions thoroughly and is flexible and knowledgeable with the industry. We couldn't have picked a better planner/florist!Sent on 04/23/2019

We found Couture Events at a Bridal show at the Berkeley Ocean Front in Asbury Park. I almost didn't go and we are so glad that I did. My husband and I had this vision for our December 1 st wedding of " Wintery sticks", I can only tell you the odd responses we received and obscure pricing when explaining our vision to other florists. We made our appointment to meet with Peter. We explained what we wanted and without blinking an eye our " wintery sticks" were imagined . The detail and time at that meeting helping us see our vision was amazing. My husband was having more fun picking out candles and led lights. In one meeting they created our centerpiece design, sweetheart table decor and table numbers and groomsmen flowers. The attention to detail, the patience with myself ( I am a pain in the ass) and honestly for all that they did the cost was well worth it and honestly surprisingly inexpensive for all they do. The greatest feeling is walking into our reception before all the guests and seeing the room they helped create with the center pieces. I can not say enough about how wonderful and amazing and talented they are at Couture Events.Sent on 12/14/2018
Couture Events of New Jersey's reply:Thank you Cassie and David for the wonderful words. You cannot imagine the pleasure we receive when a Bride and Groom are pleased with the final outcome. Lots of love always.

More beautiful than we could've imagined
The moment I spoke to Peter I knew he and his team were the right decision to design the centerpieces and floral arrangements for our November wedding. Not being a huge fan of flowers, I was afraid of being talked into something I didn't want, but Peter and his team created the centerpieces of my dreams, complete with twinkling lights, mason jars and the most beautiful, lush greenery. The bouquets they designed worked perfectly with our subtle color scheme, complimenting our looks and not overwhelming them. It was clear from the start that Peter and his team knew what they were doing, but they exceeded our expectations in every way.Sent on 12/17/2018

The wedding party flowers looked amazing, the MOB and MOG had beautiful corsages pulled together with pearls for a beautiful touch which was Peter’s idea. My bouquet was breathtaking and everything I was looking for. The centerpieces were also classic, romantic and all wedding guest had great things to say. My husband and I would recommend Couture Events of New Jersey to anyone looking for a florist for their special event. Thank you Couture Events of New Jersey for adding beauty to our special day!

Excellent Service and Professionalism!
Peter and Jim are amazing to work with! Planning a wedding can be stressful, but their attitudes about the whole process really help to relax a stressed out bride! My mom and I asked Peter if he could incorporate my mom's veil into my bouquet and he went above and beyond what we had in mind. It was beautiful, along with all my other flowers and centerpieces. Jim was a lifesaver when I was having issues getting all my vendors on the same page. He kept everything and everyone moving along and on schedule, especially the day of. I'm glad we decided to go with a planner because a number of things can/do pop up on the day of that Jim was able to take care of. It was a blessing to have someone like Jim there to help out. I can't say enough great things about the Couture Event team!Sent on 11/21/2018

Memories that will last forever! Superb Service
As the Mother of the Bride I would also like to provide input to the services provided by Couture Events NJ. - My daughter (Valerie) and I had given my bridal vail to incorporate into the brides bouquet (as the something old) which resulted in a the most unique and amazing work of art. (which also brought tears to my eyes) . All the other flowers, centerpieces, table and chair accessories where also spectacular! The 30 day out wedding planner services provided by (Jim) turned out to be worth its weight in gold as it took so much pressure off my daughter. We truly loved working with the Couture Event team. They do exceptional work and provide that personal touch that warms your heart !! THANK YOU for memories that will last a life time.Sent on 11/21/2018

Outstanding and professionalism at its finest!
Peter James and Couture Events was one of the absolute best decisions we made when planning our wedding. From our first meeting with Peter when we explained our vision, to our final consultantation and then the viewing of the centerpieces every little detail was right on point. Peter made all of our visions come true but made them even better with his eye for color and style. He was personable, patient, reliable and made sure that every single detail was thought out and handled flawlessly. This included making sure he was there to hand me my bouquet and then show me exactly how to hold it so it looked the loveliest. Our flowers were stunning, the tables were elegant and our ceremony was decorated perfectly thanks to Peter. We cannot rave enough about him. Use Couture Events, you will love them as much as we did!Sent on 11/08/2018

It was such a pleasure working with Peter James/ Coutur Events for my wedding last week. His level of professionalism and knowledge made me feel at ease right away. I knew the vibe I wanted to go for but wasn’t exactly sure how that translated into flowers and decorations but Peter knew exactly what to recommend… Our flowers, arch, and centerpieces were just perfect and I got so many compliments throughout the night. Peter was so easy to work with and answered all questions in a very timely manner. He was familiar with our venue which made it even better, he knew what would work and look best. I knew Peter had it covered and it was one less thing I had to worry about. I would 100% recommend Peter with coutur events if you want someone who knows what they’re doing, and is also personable, knowledgeable,Sent on 10/13/2018

My daughter was just married on the beach on 9/29/18. Working with the most marvelous Peter James of Couture Events made my job as "mom of the Bride" Easy! We had all kinds of ideas and photos to show Peter- He listened to me here in NJ and to my daughter living on the West Coast and then his amazing artistic talents went to work. He actually envisioned a plan right in front of me and he made what could have been a difficult process, seamless and simple! I knew I went to the right wedding planner and floral design studio. People are still commenting about our beautiful romantic tables of rose petals and lanterns with real candle light! Danielle, our day of coordinator and trust me when I say we could NOT have functioned without her!! Her compassion and kindness as well as expertise made me relax from the moment we met! She called and made arrangements that I just couldn't possibly do on my own! Danielle makes your life as Mom/Dad of the bride so much better! If you are searching for flowers, an artist like Peter James and his outstanding team have superior knowledge of the business and incredible experience ! Couture Events must be your next call if you are planning a special day! THANK YOU Peter James and Team! Truly happy to share photos and our experience!
