Very early on Saturday mornings, before the sun begins to rise, our day at Parkway Florist begins. As we start pulling together all the pieces and parts for the days’ events that go to multiple locations, we are like Santa’s little elves, always checking our list twice!
Our first stop on Saturday, October 15, was at St Pamphilus Hall in Beechview with a truck load of fresh pumpkin centerpieces. (Carving pumpkins and filling them with flowers is one of our fun jobs each year!)
The accompanying glorious fall bouquets were delivered in mid afternoon to Old St Luke’s Church in Scott Twp. A long & low centerpiece was used on the altar at the church, and then was taken onto the reception & used on the head table.
Our second stop of the day involved bouquets and centerpieces being delivered to the mezzanine level of the Omni William Penn Hotel. Deep maroon, ivory, and lavender/purple flowers were a wonderful choice for an October Saturday. As always, the awesome ambience of the Omni was gracefully carried forth with the beautiful linens and chiavari chairs.
Our final stop was a ceremony, reception, set-up, and coordination at The Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. Midnight blue gowns were complimented by the rich jewel toned mini callas, dahlias, lisianthus, and stock flower. The courtyard was the perfect place for a late day ceremony. The glowing lanterns on the isle were visible as daylight began to fade.
All in all, as the last truck headed home, and day turned into night, three more successful weddings were completed.
