8-31-3019 Over A Year in the Making…

We began working with Lindsay and her Mom, Amy,  in the late summer of 2018 in preparation for the late summer 2019 wedding.   Many conversations, and emails later, some tweaking to the plan…..and a little magic & fairy dust…..and we had a wedding!

There were actually two wedding ceremonies that took place.  First, Lindsay & Alex were married in the north hills of Pittsburgh, in a traditional Russian Orthodox ceremony.  Then,   after a few photographs, the journey to Greentree, and the second wedding of the day!

Lindsay and Alex were then  united during a Presbyterian  wedding ceremony at Unity Presbyterian Church,  right down the street from us here in Greentree!  We furnished two altarpieces, garland for the candelabras, and vases of white hydrangea, pink roses, and pink larkspur for the ceremony.  (Presbyterian churches are generally a little “understated”, so the additional flowers and candles helped to set a festive mood).

Lindsay’s bridal bouquet (#1033) was a traditional round bouquet with Sahara and Vendella roses, Gardenias, Stephanotis with pearls, and  a little blue thistle.  (the secret ingredient here).

Her Maid of Honor carried a bouquet (#1034) of white hydrangea, white Vendella roses and mauve Faith roses.  Her bridesmaids carried bouquets (#1035) of white hydrangea and mauve Faith roses, while  her junior bridesmaids carried a smaller version, with the same flowers (#1036).

 

The reception took place in downtown Pittsburgh at The Westin Pittsburgh.  Guests were greeted  at the top of the escalator by an elevated  arrangement on  the place card table (#121), lush with white hydrangea, white roses, pink larkspur, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus.

Inside the ballroom, the centerpieces were entirely romantic.  We designed long and low centerpieces (#640) of white hydrangea, white roses, and white spray roses in gold containers, and surrounded them with votive candles and  cylinders of floating candles.

Bethel Bakery supplied a yummy looking cake, which we  also decorated with fresh flowers (#162).    The ombre gold cake was stunning  with our white roses and light pink spray roses.

It was a pleasure working with you, Lindsay and Alex, as well as your family, Lindsay,  to achieve your Best Day Ever!   We wish you both  many years of happiness as you embark on this new adventure together.  God Bless and have a great journey!

Brittany carried a bouquet (#993) of bright stargazer lilies and hot pink roses.  Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets (#994) of stargazer lilies, hot pink roses, and white waxflower.

The ceremony took place between two bright altarpieces on top of our pillars, featuring white hydrangea, white stock flowers, pink Gerber daisies, stargazer lilies, pink snapdragon, and pink larkspur.  You can see them pictured below, with the bride!

Inside the ballroom, the tables were decorated with alternating low and high centerpieces.  Both the low (#628a) and high (#628b) centerpieces featured white hydrangea and pale pink roses.

We decorated their wedding cake (#159) from Bethel Bakery with light pink roses and spray roses.  The cake topper was just too cute!

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.

Inside the ballroom, the cake was trimmed with lavender roses and spray roses.

The centerpieces were low on the tables and combined as many purple flowers in a variety of shades as we could find!

Congratulations to Sara & Tony!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

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.

Guests were greeted by a place card table outside the 3 Rivers Ballroom which also featured sunflowers!  Floating candles created a warm ambiance for the display.placecard table

Keeping up with the theme, the centerpieces (#616), which were created in mason jars, featured more sunflowers!  The centerpieces also had yellow lilies, yellow viking mums, caspia, white roses, and irises, for a beautiful contrast of yellows and blues!center piece 616

And the icing on the (cup)cake(s)?  More sunflowers!

It was a lot of fun working with Danielle & Eric to make their flower vision come true.  We loved the sunny weather, which always makes the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott’s courtyard shine! We thank the lovely couple for allowing us to help on their special day, and wish them the best of luck with their future adventures!

The Rush of Spring 2018 Brides

Wedding season creeps up on us – with little cat feet. Soft, gentle, one at a time. Then warmer weather breaks, and many, many weddings & events begin to happen. Here’s a sampling of bouquets we have created in just the last month.

 

Blush, ivory & white are still some of our most requested colors, but occasionally someone goes bold! We will create whatever you want!
