One Last Hooray!

As 2017 drew to a close, we were somewhat nostalgic, yet very happy for our year end brides.

Our 12/29/17 bride chose a very full but traditional look to compliment her long sleeved lace dress. Sahara roses, Patience garden roses, Vendella roses, red hypericum berries, and gold eucalyptus accents came together nicely into a loose round shape.

Andrea, our Saturday bride carried some of the same flowers but also included pink mini callas, maroon amaranthus , and dark mums. Rose Gold was the accent color which displayed nicely in the pink accented ballroom.

One of our New Year’s Eve brides chose to be married under our brass arch with similar flowers. After the ceremony concluded and pictures were finished, the flowers were transferred to the head table.

So, as 2017 drew to a close, we gather one last time to wish all of our 2017 brides and grooms a heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for your new lives ahead. Thank you all for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special day.    And we look forward to what 2018 has in store for us as well!


Light Up The Night

A warm glow flickered throughout the evening at one of our favorite venues this past Saturday. Soft and elegant wreathes surrounded gray brushed metal lanterns to create a cozy and welcoming ambiance on half of the tables. The other half enjoyed a clear glass cylinder vase full of soft peach roses for a classy and complimentary look.

The bride and groom were married at local St. Malachy Church where the bride carried an array of several colors of roses. Her bridesmaids carried pink roses accented with sprigs of tiny waxflower and eucalyptus seeds.

Another happy bride that we were honored to work with!

Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Something Bippity-Boppity-Boo

Fairy tails really can come true! Lots of fun was had this weekend as we brought a Cinderella themed wedding to life. It turns out the Cinderella’s fairy god mother was actually a florist.

Our beautiful bride carried a classic cascade style bouquet down the isle. Lavender roses, purple lisianthus, blue delphinium, light purple freesia, blue hydrangeas, and accents of flowing ivy vines were all used to create this eye catching design. The bridesmaids carried similar flowers with a pop of texture provided by some blue thistle.

The blue and purple color scheme was carried over into the altar flowers and of course the fabulous pumpkin carriage centerpieces that stole the show! These were definitely a statement piece as they tied together the whole theme of the day.

We love to find new and unique ways to make your day special and this wedding goes to show that the possibilities are endless! Enjoy!

The dream continues into the night, as we decorate your reception site. Romantic roses, fluffy hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, rustic slabs of logs and vintage jars.

Collections of smaller centerpieces provide diversity and interest on each table. Low, or high? Or both?

Adding decorative up lighting to the room can transform ordinary colors into a really dreamy space.

Here are ideas to get you started.

3 Weddings and a ???

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.
