After 6 years of service to many beautiful couples and families, Private Receptions is closing it’s “doors”.

Vice President, Lexi Weinberg, will continue to plan and design weddings in the Northeast area but will no longer operate under the Private Receptions name, though her dedication to service will remain the same.  As of September 1st, 2014, our President, Lauren Ricciardelli, will be operating under the name “Sparkle & Charm” and will be focusing on children’s birthday parties and baby showers in the Hilton Head Island/Bluffton/Savannah areas. 

Lexi can continue to be reached at until the end of 2014.
