6-8-2019 – Clear Skies and Bright Blooms

The weather shined for us!

On June 8th, 2019, it turned out to be another beautiful day in our Pittsburgh neighborhoods.  Our visit to Epiphany Catholic Church on Washington Place showcased just how many hidden gems our city contains.  This beautiful church was actually built in 1902!

6-1-2019 – A Summer Garden Wedding

What a beautiful day for a wedding!

Sara & Anthony must have prayed really really hard for a beautiful day, because June 1st turned out to have the best weather so far this year in Pittsburgh!  Beautiful plexiglas signs welcomed and directed guests to the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott courtyard for a short, non-denominational service, conducted by Ronald Cambest.

Sara chose all white flowers for her bridal bouquet, accented with Picassa mini callas.  Her bridesmaids, dressed in dark plum, and carried white rose and waxflower bouquets.

Our pipe and drape, adorned with beautiful purple and lavender flowers,  provided an elegant backdrop for the ceremony and for pictures after the service.  Following the service & pictures, we moved the pieces from the pipe & drape  into the ballroom to adorn the head table.

5-25-2019 – An Eclectic French Renaissance Wedding

Every once in a while, we have a bride that comes in full to the brim with ideas for her wedding.  One of our Saturday brides this weekend, Leeann, was one of those brides!  Ribbons, wildflowers, dream catchers, and so many more beautiful elements came together to make her vision a reality.

Leeann carried a dreamy bouquet (#974) of pink peonies, hot pink ranunculus, pink asters, pink lisianthus, Queen Anne’s lace, light blue delphinium, and lots of monte casino asters!

Her bridesmaids carried bouquets (#975) of pink lisianthus, blue thistle, light blue delphinium, Queen Anne’s lace and lots of monte casino asters!  They truly looked like handfuls of wildflowers.

The ceremony took place in the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott’s courtyard garden, and the bride and groom said their vows in front of our hexagon arch.  We decorated the arch with nearly a hundred opalescent ribbons to create a flowy, romantic contrast to the bold geometric shape of the arch.  A large spray of pastel flowers sat atop the arch.

The aisle was decorated with bunches of flowers tied to chairs with opalescent ribbons.

Leeann and Chris’s reception took place in the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott’s Grand Ballroom.  The spray from the top of the arch was transported inside to sit on the King’s table in front of the newlyweds.

The centerpieces (#621) were lush arrangements of peonies, ranunculus, light and dark blue delphinium, monte casino asters, stock, and light pink roses made up in whitewash wooden planter boxes.

5.18.2019 – Sunny, Sunny Sunflowers

Danielle & Eric tied the knot!

It was fitting that their featured flower was the sunflower – because it sure was a hot and sunny day for their Pittsburgh Airport Marriott courtyard wedding!  The bride and groom said “I do” in the courtyard, under our arch decorated with sunflowers, blue delphinium, and yellow snapdragons.  The aisle was decorated with bunches of sunflowers, tied together with navy ribbons.

 

The bride’s bouquet (#970) had white roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, and light blue delphinium.  Her bridesmaids carried bouquets (#971) of sunflowers with blue thistle.

4.20.2019 – It’s Sunny in Pittsburgh!

Alyssa & Shawn said “I Do!”

It was a beautiful courtyard ceremony at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott.  The sun was out and shining – something we didn’t expect.  The weather forecast on Friday showed showers, but wouldn’t you know it stayed sunny until 6:05PM Saturday evening.  The happy couple got married in the courtyard in front of friends and family.  PAM couple 4_20_19
