Memories of Weddings Past…

Recently, we received some beautiful photos from a wedding we provided flowers for on  November, 18 2017. The Bride was Andrea Yasko, with a ceremony taking place at Heinz Chapel & a reception at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott Grand Ballroom.

The couple’s wedding photographer, Kristen Wynn, was kind enough to share some of the memories she captured that day, including some fine images showcasing the bouquets & centerpieces Parkway Florist had created.

 

 

Above, the happy couple, their wedding party & some closeups of the bouquets of the day!

 

 

Above are examples of the stunning, tall centerpieces created for the reception. Lower centerpieces were also created, to give a high/low look, and create diversity throughout the room.

Thank you Kristen Wynn Photography for sharing your lovely work!

The (Good) Luck of the Irish Prevailed on 3.17.18

The weather in March can be unpredictable, but St. Patrick’s Day this year proved to be sunny and bright, just a little cool.  Perfect conditions for an early (almost) Spring Wedding!

Parkway Florist created the flowers for three beautiful weddings this holiday weekend.

Megan’s bouquet of light peach garden roses, white spray roses, and Eskimo roses, accented with dusty miller and silver dollar eucy.  was  her perfect dream bouquet.  Megan & her fiance got married in a small, quiet ceremony,  with a private dinner for family and friends held at the Walnut Grill in Bridgeville.

One Last Hooray!

As 2017 drew to a close, we were somewhat nostalgic, yet very happy for our year end brides.

Our 12/29/17 bride chose a very full but traditional look to compliment her long sleeved lace dress. Sahara roses, Patience garden roses, Vendella roses, red hypericum berries, and gold eucalyptus accents came together nicely into a loose round shape.

Andrea, our Saturday bride carried some of the same flowers but also included pink mini callas, maroon amaranthus , and dark mums. Rose Gold was the accent color which displayed nicely in the pink accented ballroom.

One of our New Year’s Eve brides chose to be married under our brass arch with similar flowers. After the ceremony concluded and pictures were finished, the flowers were transferred to the head table.

So, as 2017 drew to a close, we gather one last time to wish all of our 2017 brides and grooms a heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for your new lives ahead. Thank you all for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special day.    And we look forward to what 2018 has in store for us as well!

As the winter solstice approaches, we move into “winter wedding” mode. Lots of whites, creams, and ivories are accented with branches and eucalyptus; in this case, sprayed gold.

Our bride carried “Patience” garden roses, “Playa Blanca” open white roses, white ranunculus,  gold seeded eucy. and dusty miller.

The bridesmaids, in beautiful hunter green dresses, carried smaller bouquets with the same theme and color palette.

The Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Twp., was the the scene of this  elegant reception. Gold branched centerpieces containing white hydrangeas and gold eucalyptus were scattered throughout the ballroom, giving  visual dimension to the room. Low centerpieces graced the remaining tables.

Gold chiavari chairs added to the overall classic feel of the wedding & reception.

Best wishes and much happiness to you both……and Merry Christmas!

Ashley & Nick | 11.11.17

As the 2017 wedding season begins to wind down. We are reminded how we must plan and adapt for mother nature each week!

Our 11-11-17 wedding at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott with Ashley & Nick had everyone planning to be inside for the ceremony and use the outdoor spaces for pictures.

The colors were regal, purple and white with beautiful purple lisianthus included in Ashley’s bouquet as well as Nick’s boutonniere. Ashley’s bouquet also sparkled with rhinestones.

 

Silver lanterns lines the aisle while our chiffon pipe and drape provided an elegant but understated ceremony backdrop.

The lanterns were re-purposed and moved to the reception area. Additional tables were graced with sparkling lighted cylinder vases wearing hydrangea hats.

Nov 18th saw two weddings and two receptions with the use of similar flowers, but totally different results!

Andrea was a Heinz Memorial Chapel bride, very formal with lots of flowers and extra touches.

Her ballroom was decorated with large, high and short, low centerpieces. The guests were greeted by a coordinating place card table arrangement.

Julie & Chris exchanged their vows in a hotel ballroom. Large flower urns flanked our black sofa table, which was used for the sand ceremony display.

All of the centerpieces for this wedding were low and displayed nicely against the beautiful navy overlay table linens.

Our best wishes for a very happy life to both of these couples. Thank you for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special days.

Southpointe Golf Club

St. Benedict the Abbot  Catholic Church  in McMurray, Pa.  was the setting for a beautiful   and classic wedding ceremony. Soft white and blush pink flowers decorated the altar and the pews for a very traditional ceremony.

The bride carried a bouquet of opening white garden roses and cream  roses accented with eucalyptus for a simple and elegant look. The bridesmaids carried a more airy design of colored  roses, accented  with seeded eucalyptus, a more contemporary design.

Once the ceremony concluded, the guests made their way to the Southpointe Golf Club for the fun and beautiful reception. The guests were greeted by a tall place card table arrangment consisting of hydrangeas, roses, willow branches, and greens in a tall trumpet riser vase.

Moving into the ballroom, two types of centerpieces were used on alternating tables. The shorter  centerpieces  contained hydrangeas, roses, and seeded eucalyptus for a fresh classy, lush & full  look. The taller centerpiece created interest in the room with its tall willow branches peeking out of hydrangea blooms and seeded eucalyptus greens, taking advantage of the tall ceilings in the ballroom.

This wedding encompassed the classic look and feel of a traditional wedding while indulging the guests in an elegant experience. We had enjoyed  visiting the Southpointe Golf Club and look forward to our next trip there.  Congratulations again to our Bride and Groom!
