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.

To our new Mr & Mrs, we wish you many years of happiness!

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!

Cline Wedding — Summer Romance

 Bride-Cline2 Bride-Cline Bride-Cline3

On a great summer day, two wonderful people joined forces in a beautiful outdoor ceremony.   The wonderful  simplicity of the bouquets, dresses and archway helped to convey the romantic, but not pretentious ideas of both the Bride and Groom.

Understated Elegance is a better definition  for this wedding.

PAM Garden Arch Arrangement

As is our style, after the ceremony and after pictures were finished, we re-purposed the flowers from the arch to the indoor reception.  This large and show arrangement then became part of another Pittsburgh Cookie Table!  The tradition continues!!

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!
