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!
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.
We know that a fun time was had at all 3 weddings.
On May 7, 2011, we had the pleasure of making a bride’s dream come true. The bride, Brooke, had one special request for her wedding flowers, and that was to have a bouquet of all lavender lilacs.
The scent of the lilacs reminded Brooke of her grandmother’s garden, and was also her grandmother’s favorite flower. However, the wet, rainy weather along with the lack of sunshine in Pittsburgh made this request a challenge.
Nonetheless, a challenge we accepted! With the help of one of our international sources in Holland, we were able to fulfill Brooke’s very special request for her lavender lilac bouquet.
Her bouquet (shown above) was breathtaking, fragrant, and loved by our bride!
