It’s almost fall! With this Friday, September 22 marking the autumn equinox, we are patiently awaiting fall’s official arrival. We can always tell that fall is nearly here when the rich jewel tones of purple are a part of three weddings that we produce in one weekend! This past weekend was a display of rich color that makes everyone at Parkway Florist look forward to all of what fall has to offer.
Our first bride chose Picasso Mini Callas for her wedding flowers. An outdoor ceremony at the Doubletree Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Township was the perfect setting for a gorgeous mid-September wedding day. White lanterns adorned their guest tables to provide a romantic ambiance.
Our second Purple wedding took place as St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Moon Twp, with a wonderful reception at the Montour Heights Country Club. Ben and Rachel chose varying shades of eggplant as the wedding colors. Lush, full centerpieces were a perfect compliment to their reception decor. Ben and Rachel were able to share a few quiet moments as their sweetheart table which was also decorated with a beautiful centerpiece.
Our last purple wedding of the day took place at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Twp. Nicole and Kyle also chose plum/purple as their wedding color. However, they chose to accent with orange, hot pink, and lavender (bright & bold!) The Picasso mini callas were carried by our bride, while the bridesmaids carried all the bright & bold colors. Our lighted brass arch did double duty, serving as a ceremony backdrop and then repurposed to frame the bride & groom behind the head table. Centerpieces also pulled in bright & bold elements.
Congratulations to all our brides and grooms who chose to hold their wedding in the Fall season in a variety of similar but different ways.
On Saturday, July 9th, we had the pleasure of providing our bride Deanna with very classic flowers for her up-scale Wedding. The ceremony took place at Duquesne University’s Chapel, with a full Catholic mass and was followed by an evening reception at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott located in Moon Township.
Deanna asked us to create a “classic and clean” look for her. She loved Callas!!
We supplied large clear glass urns, filled with full-sized, open cut calla lilies at the Chapel. The bridesmaids all carried a clutch of 4 large callas, as well. Deanna’s bouquet consisted of 36 miniature white callas, which complimented her very stylish dress nicely.
After the ceremony, the large urns of callas were moved to the reception to decorate the luscious Pittsburgh cookie tables that flanked each side of the ballroom. Huge clouds of white hydrangea were suspended over each guest table as a centerpiece. The accents of silver branches incorporated into the centerpieces drew the eyes to the twinkling lights on the ceiling.
A grand time was had by all (as we have been told). Congratulations to Deanna and Mark!
Below are some pictures from Deanna’s wedding. Take a look at the big and beautiful calla lilies!
