The hustle and bustle of wedding season has been keeping us busy at Parkway Florist. We are so grateful to have worked with so many wonderful families this summer and are excited to see what the rest of 2016 will bring our way. This past weekend was quite a colorful one in our shop! Nothing gets you into the fall spirit more than delightful oranges, yellows, and reds.
Despite the hot and humid weather on Saturday, the colors for these weddings got us in the mood for crisp fall air, and sweet apple cider!
Our first bride carried a variety of flowers including orange and white lilies, coral and ivory roses, orange celosia, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller. The bridesmaids and junior bridesmaid had coordinating bouquets which featured gerbera daisies, mini carnations, roses, gomphrena, and cottage yarrow. To decorate the church, we used two larger arrangements on the altar as well as eight smaller arrangements that were hung on the columns that line the isle. Many similar flowers were used throughout to create a unifying color scheme and atmosphere for this wedding.

Continuing on with bright fall colors, we had a beautiful wedding take place in the courtyard garden of the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. Sunflowers and roses decorated the isle to create a perfectly romantic atmosphere for a wedding ceremony. The bride’s bouquet was a beautiful assortment of ivory garden roses, succulents, yellow roses, craspedia, brunia berries, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and mint leaves. The bridesmaids carried clutches of yellow calla lilies and the groomsmen each wore a yellow calla lily boutonniere.
Last but certainly not least, we created this bouquet for a bride who had a red and turquoise color scheme. The bridesmaids wore cherry red dresses and carried turquoise blue flowers. By special request we were able to incorporate these colors into all the bouquets with a unique ribbon wrap on the handles (just to show you that we can bring any idea to life for your special day.)
Let’s see what the changing season brings us this year!
