The Grand Concourse – Old World Splendor & Elegance

One of our recent wedding receptions took place at the Grand Concourse restaurant at Station Square on Pittsburgh’s South Side. This elegant former train station was built in 1901 & in 1974 was listed on the National Register of Historic places.

In the years since the train station was refurbished into a fine dining establishment, it has hosted famous actors, Heads of State & has even been used to film scenes for several major motion pictures. Plus, of course, it makes a splendid & unique setting for a wedding reception!!

 

Fresh flowers adorn the pearl & silver design of the reception’s wedding cake, which was created by Cakes by Tammy.

 

 

Two different centerpiece designs were used for the occasion. The smaller 2 & 4 person tables had smaller clutch style vases, while the larger booths and tables held lush and full centerpieces comprised of white hydrangea & light pink roses, in mercury glass pedestal bowls, with silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus accents.

 

 

Our Bride carried a bouquet distinguished with light bursts of color, including roses and hydrangea, while the Bridesmaids carried a simple & clean bouquet of all white hydrangea & roses.

Steven Vance Strolling Violins supplied pre-function music as well as dancing music for the entire evening.

Classic Brides Are Always In Style

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!
