Kicking off Wedding Season 2018

Our 2018  wedding season has officially started!    On March 2,  we made a trip to Butcher and the Rye Restaurant, located in the heart of the Cultural District,  in Downtown Pittsburgh.   Butcher and the Rye boasts a large selection of Rye whiskey, modern American cuisine, and a rustic chic atmosphere. The restaurant was closed to the public on Friday, in order to   host this wedding reception.  We decorated the  entire space with stylish garlands and stunning florals.

A large floral centerpiece was featured on the main floor of the restaurant.   The elevated centerpiece was accented by glass cylinders with floating candles, and a floral garland woven  across the table. The almost two story tall  mirror behind the table  added dimension and amplified the look of the  flowers in the romantic candle light.

The statement centerpiece featured snap dragons, ivory and blush roses, white lilies, larkspur, curly willow, and generous greens.

Railings  leading to the second floor, and well as on the second floor, were dressed with lush  green garlands,  accented with hydrangeas and  blush and ivory roses.



The actual wedding ceremony took place  earlier in the day, in Judge’s chambers in the Allegheny County Courthouse, downtown.   Allyson  carried a lavish bouquet of hydrangeas, roses, freesia, and peonies — many of her favorite flowers —  for a feminine and soft look.  Nate, our Groom, wore a classic white rose with freesia boutonniere.
