One of our favorite parts of wedding planning is working with the bride to develop her vision. This is what ties together all of the small details to convey an overall theme or feeling for her day. This begins in the planning stages and becomes more developed as the wedding day approaches. A big part of this can be heavily reliant on the look of the reception room. The room is like a blank canvas ready for a painting, and we become collaborative artists. Last Saturday we worked with a bride who wanted a classic, elegant look for her wedding, and we knew just the tricks.
Below is The Three Rivers Ballroom at The Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. A major factor that gave the ballroom an elegant and classic look were the gold chivari chairs that were used. Paired with gold overlays on the tables, the room made a stunning first impression.
The centerpieces were another important piece of the puzzle. White hydrangeas and roses were the showcased. The centerpieces were surrounded by pillar candles on silver candle holders. To complete the look, handwritten table numbers were displayed on small glass frames.
The cake was decorated with white hydrangeas and roses between each tier. Two flexed roses were used as the cake topper for a natural look.
Lastly, our bride carried a cascading bouquet. It included blush and ivory roses, dendrobium orchids, white stock, and seeded eucalyptus. Her bouquet later adorned the bride and groom’s sweetheart table, seen behind the cake table above.
The bridesmaids carried simple clutch style bouquets of white hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus, and lemon leaf.
Congratulations and best wishes to our beautiful bride and groom!
