Love is in the ‘Burgh

This summer we have had the pleasure of helping several spontaneous/elopement weddings. Love in the air is quite the force to be reckoned with.

This past week we met on of the most interesting couples. Laura & Steve, two competitive bodybuilders, became Mr & Mrs at Pittsburgh’s scenic West End Overlook park. Competing and getting married in the same week made for an adventurous and exciting trip to Pittsburgh. We provided Laura with a vibrant pink bouquet that contained roses, calla lilies, and gerber daisies. This couple my look fierce on the outside but they were sweethearts! We were so happy to help!

 

Regardless of whether the couple spends a year planning, or only a few short days, what really matters is the love and commitment they share. For some couples, the decision to elope just makes sense. This was the case for our civil ceremony that took place at the District Magistrate’s office. For this bride, we provided a soft and feminine blush and ivory bouquet. A combination of roses, lisianthus, and calla lilies created this romantic look.

Are we making you want to elope? Be aware, there is a three day waiting period for marriage licenses filed in Pennsylvania. District Magistrates, Judges, and Mayors as well as religious officiants are all able to marry a couple on short notice. We can have a bouquet ready for you quickly also. Happy Eloping!

Lanterns! Our Newest Trend

There’s nothing like the sight of lanterns at a wedding. Pretty and whimsical, lanterns come in many styles, colors, and sizes. The romantic soft light of a candle glowing from within makes lanterns the perfect wedding decor item.

Our wedding this past Saturday took this idea and ran with it. Lanterns were used throughout the ceremony and reception providing a consistent theme.

White lanterns were used on the guest tables as centerpieces as well as on the head table. Topped with blush pink and ivory flowers, the soft elegant look really came together.

The wedding cake was decorated with many of the same flowers from the centerpieces for the perfect soft pink touch.

As with any trend, each person makes their own adaptations to fit their personal style and taste. Below are some of the many styles of lanterns that we have worked with just in the past few years alone. You’ll see that each has its own distinct look. This is a trend that we hope stays around for a while to come!

Tiffany & Patrick | June 3rd, 2017

St Peter Catholic Church in Steubenville, OH was the beginning of our Saturday adventures!

This beautiful basilica styled church is on the National Register of Historic Places, and it is quite a site to see.

“The present church is the result of three major remodeling projects, but still retains the 1907 stained glass windows, made in Munich, Germany, as well as the marble altars, statues, and Communion rail imported from Italy. The 15 major stained glass windows are very rare, depicting the mysteries of the Rosary.  The dome rises 95 feet from the marble mosaic floor, and the center aisle is 75 feet long.  The overall design of St. Peters is of the French Renaissance style of architecture, cruciform in shape. It was designed by Emil Ulrich of Cleveland, Ohio, and features two towers rising 145 feet.  The exterior was built of Amherst and stone, and the structural parts of the roof, towers, and dome are of steel which was made in the area.  In 1993 a one million-dollar renovation took place under the direction of Msgr. Lucianna, to restore the roof, dome, towers, and exterior stone.” (For more information please visit the church’s website by clicking here.)

Our bride, Tiffany, was all about pink. She carried a big fluffy bouquet of light pink peonies, and her 12 bridesmaids carried more of the fluffy pink peonies with white roses and eucalyptus.

Tiffany & Patrick’s adorable flower girl wore a beautiful halo of baby’s breath and pink spray roses. Her hair had been adorned with lovely pearl pins that accented the halo perfectly.

The reception was held at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott in the grand ballroom. A graceful, tall pink blooming tree greeted guests as they entered the reception.

Both high and low centerpieces were utilized to give the ballroom interest. The centerpieces included blush pink roses, hydrangeas, gold tipped eucalyptus, and the same fluffy pink peonies as the bridal party flowers.

Gold chiavari chairs completed the very elegant look.
