Saturday morning dawned and it was clear that any outdoor ceremonies were going to need to go to “Plan B” today. The weather, it seemed, had a mind of its own.
Our day started with an 11 a.m. ceremony at Duquesne University Chapel. Susan was a very Traditional Bride, carrying a free-form cascade.
Our second wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral was all shades of peach, coral, and green. Short, kicky dresses were the order of the day.
Our Bethel Park wedding was moved outside to inside. Fun clutches of gerber daisies for the Bridesmaids, roses added for the bride, and our locally grown farm fresh bouquets gracing the reception tables.
We know that a fun time was had at all 3 weddings.
If you are looking for an all-inclusive facility to hold both your wedding ceremony and the reception, please consider the wonderful space at Bella Serra.
Bella Serra is located near Canonsburg, Pa. It has a Tuscan feel, with a HUGE fireplace wall that is the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony. There is also a private room for the wedding party on the second floor, as well as a wide, romantic staircase for the bride to glide down, and enter for her ceremony. The facility can accommodate up to approximately 300 for a reception.
This venue has a beautiful “old world” charm, with modern accommodations. It is very close to the Southpointe and Canonsburg/Meadowslands hotels, which is very nice for out-of-town guests.
The pictures below are the set-up we did for a late March – early April wedding.
On a great summer day, two wonderful people joined forces in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The wonderful simplicity of the bouquets, dresses and archway helped to convey the romantic, but not pretentious ideas of both the Bride and Groom.
Understated Elegance is a better definition for this wedding.
As is our style, after the ceremony and after pictures were finished, we re-purposed the flowers from the arch to the indoor reception. This large and show arrangement then became part of another Pittsburgh Cookie Table! The tradition continues!!
