A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets.
Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up.
The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating.
Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.

Discover “Something New” at Bridal Atelier Montclair

By Michele Silver



Designer Rachel Sweebe spent 20 years in the fashion business before discovering her love of wedding gowns. Over the next 10 years, she created custom designs and launched her own collection, which eventually led to her new retail space, Bridal Atelier Montclair, located in the heart of Upper Montclair. “Opening this boutique seemed like the natural next step in pursuing my love of all things bridal!” she enthused.



Bridal Atelier Montclair carries a beautiful assortment of gowns, veils and headpieces from American and European designers such as Flora, Romona Keveza, Claire Pettibone, Amy Kuschel, Campodoro Bride and Sara Gabriel. The unique brands are a real draw for customers seeking something truly special for their big day. “Most of our designers are exclusive to us in New Jersey,” Sweebe said.


The trends for spring/summer focus on classic/ clean silhouettes, deep “V” necklines, sheer details and gowns in crepe fabric. “Our bride is contemporary in her style, she wants modern with a twist paired without compromising impeccable fit and luxurious fabrics,” she explained.

The shop offers private one-on-one bridal and accessory appointments, complete alteration services and maximum flexibility for customizations on the gowns that we carry, according to Sweebe. “We take great care in creating a relaxed and personal experience for both our brides and their families.”
