Bridal Beauty Fun at José Eber Salon

#HipNJ’s hippest brides flocked to Millburn’s José Eber Salon for their bridal beauty event, hosted by New Jersey’s event planner to the stars, Danielle Rothweiler of Rothweiler Event Design.

The salon’s chic industrial look, outfitted with stark white decor and glamourous chandeliers, made the perfect backdrop for the betrothed to meet with some of the Garden State’s premiere wedding vendors.

Guests enjoyed appetizer samples from Jersey City’s Maritime Parc, which included delicious cuts of various meats and an array of cheeses. Complimenting that spread were succulent dessert samples by Dumont’s My Daughter’s Cakes, who provided samples of their cookies, cakes and pies. José Eber Salon also offered sinfully sweet, branded cake pops, compliments of Santatori.

Other top New Jersey wedding vendors included Bloomingdale’s Short Hills, Bardot Lingerie, Darling and Pearl, Red Carpet Boutique and more. New Jersey Bride, the state’s top wedding publication, also provided their expert support for the event.

#HipNJWeddings: “Jersey Boys” Actress Renee Marino and Paul Anthony Events

#HipNJ has gone behind the scenes of an incredible New Jersey wedding. Our own Kelly Dillon was with actress and Jersey Boys movie star Renee Marino– now officially Renee Lopez-Calleja!- on her special day!

Renee looked outstanding at her wedding, wearing a Demetrios gown.  She planned the entire wedding herself, and the most important element she needed her guests to have was great entertainment.  She knew her friend Paul Anthony of Paul Anthony Events was the perfect person to fit the bill.  “He is one of the sharpest men I know,” Renee tells #HipNJ.

Paul Anthony Events has been servicing #HipNJ events for years. They do everything, from DJing to lighting to live music. He understands how to give people a classy and formal, yet fun time!

Renee’s wedding capped off an incredible year for the Linden-born Hollywood starlet.  Clint Eastwood– directed “Jersey Boys” was her first movie.  Representing Jersey in a film about Jersey was a dream come true in more ways than one!

The groom is equally as busy and successful.  Michael Lopez-Calleja owns Devotion Vodka, voted the #1 Growing Vodka in the Country.

Watch now for more on Renee and Michael’s special day!
