8-28-20 Morgan and Josh

When Morgan and Josh began planning the wedding of their dreams in 2019, never did they imagine the incredible challenges that 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic would throw their way.

Their dream wedding was originally scheduled for 5-9-20 – Mother’s Day weekend. Near the end of the April, the wedding had to be postponed because the State of Pennsylvania was locked down – and all gatherings were prohibited.

The wedding was re-scheduled for 8-28-20. (The pandemic should be over by then …….right?) But no – that became questionable, as our Allegheny County Executive & The Allegheny County Dept of Health imposed even stricter rules than the State of Pennsylvania. So, in mid- August when the venue scheduled to host their wedding could not host it, with all the things they wanted, Morgan and Josh moved their wedding – to Montour Heights Country Club.

The ceremony was to take place in the grove, next to the golf course, while the reception would be held on the grand patio, underneath a very large tent.

Everything was moving in the right direction. Then at 1pm on Friday, the rain hit. a heavy, blowing, torrential downpour….that did not stop.

The wedding ceremony & reception was moved inside the club. So, Josh and Morgan got married under our white fabric draped & decorated arch. After the ceremony & a few pictures, the Arch was quickly dismantled and the reception continued.

Pictured below is our arch, Morgan’s bouquet and her bridesmaids bouquets.

Centerpieces included both short and tall flowers using white hydrangea and soft pink Mondial roses, similar to these centerpieces. Flowers for the arch were re- purposed as decor for the head table.

Eve though the rain continued all evening, spirits were high… and in the end Morgan and Josh were finally Married! Wow! What a tale to tell their children some day!

Blessings to you both! Thanks for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special day!

Welcoming Fall | 3 Purple Weddings

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.
