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.
Did you know that Heinz Field can be rented for weddings and other fun events? Many people do not know that! Our wedding on Saturday, July 16th, took us to Heinz Field for both the ceremony and the reception, which took place in the West Club area.
We were able to set up early. Very, very large carts helped us move all of our equipment, flowers and “stuff” from the loading dock to the club area. Elegant white linens with champagne satin sashes provided the perfect touch to a sports world kind of place. There were also monitors throughout the club that had Erin and Mark’s name on it. What fun!
We finished rather quickly, and then returned later in the day with the personal flowers and bouquets. Erin was a very understated, classic bride. However, her dress had lots of detail and bling! Her handsome groom, in his dress uniform, is an active duty member of the US Coast Guard.
More pictures will be posted later — but we just wanted to tease you a little! Oh, and what is a wedding at Heinz Field without a Steelers Cake for the Groom? Just the right touch, but a total opposite of the elegant wedding cake Erin chose.
St Bernard’s Church in Mt Lebanon, Pa is a grand, very stately Catholic church and was the setting for Deidra’s very bold and bright wedding on 7/9/11.
Everyone marches to a different tune when choosing their bouquet, and Deidra’s tune was the color pink! She also requested that we include some “bling” in her bouquet. Deidra carried a round bouquet of all hot-pink Ravel roses, accented with crystals.
The bridesmaids dresses were a watermelon color, which meant not pink, not red and not coral. More so one of what we call an “in between” color. To tackle our “watermelon” dilema, we did not try to match the dress color, but complimented it instead. The flowers we created turned out to be a perfect accent!
Below are pictures of the pompadour ball that Deidra’s flower girl held. This placecard table piece could also be a perfect addition to a bright pink wedding!
We think these colors were just the right combinations for a 90 degree summer July day, and our bride who loved the color pink!
