Jingle Bells & Wedding Bells

As the winter solstice approaches, we move into “winter wedding” mode. Lots of whites, creams, and ivories are accented with branches and eucalyptus; in this case, sprayed gold.

Our bride carried “Patience” garden roses, “Playa Blanca” open white roses, white ranunculus,  gold seeded eucy. and dusty miller.

The bridesmaids, in beautiful hunter green dresses, carried smaller bouquets with the same theme and color palette.

The Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Twp., was the the scene of this  elegant reception. Gold branched centerpieces containing white hydrangeas and gold eucalyptus were scattered throughout the ballroom, giving  visual dimension to the room. Low centerpieces graced the remaining tables.

Gold chiavari chairs added to the overall classic feel of the wedding & reception.

The Cold is Brewing but Love is Still Blooming | 11.18.17.

Nov 18th saw two weddings and two receptions with the use of similar flowers, but totally different results!

Andrea was a Heinz Memorial Chapel bride, very formal with lots of flowers and extra touches.

Her ballroom was decorated with large, high and short, low centerpieces. The guests were greeted by a coordinating place card table arrangement.

Julie & Chris exchanged their vows in a hotel ballroom. Large flower urns flanked our black sofa table, which was used for the sand ceremony display.

All of the centerpieces for this wedding were low and displayed nicely against the beautiful navy overlay table linens.

Our best wishes for a very happy life to both of these couples. Thank you for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special days.

Pittsburgh Winter Weddings in Classic White

This winter we have had the pleasure of working with several great brides and their families to plan beautiful  winter weddings. The color palette of white, ivory, cream, and gold are classic winter colors. We were able to work with these colors to produce some pretty stunning floral arrangements.

Our first wedding pictured was a New Years Eve wedding. Our bride carried a beautiful cascading bouquet that was made of perfectly blooming creamy white garden roses (which smelled amazing!) The roses were combined with smaller white spray roses, gold tipped winter pine greens, and seeded eucalyptus.

The bridesmaids carried bouquets that coordinated in style and color. Pictured are their slightly cascading bouquets of white standard roses, gold hypericum berries, and winter pine greens.

There was 1 junior bridesmaid and she carried a bouquet very similar to the bridesmaids’ with white roses and spray roses.

As the clock struck midnight, the bride and groom danced into the new year and their new life together as Mr. & Mrs. These classic white flowers were a perfect wintry touch to an already special day.

Our first wedding of 2017 was another beautiful winter wedding that utilized the same color palette for an upscale winter wonderland look.

We provided 3 different styles of centerpieces for the guest tables. The first was an arrangement designed in gold lanterns, the second was a low-to-the-table arrangement in gold mercury glass pedestal bowls, and the third was an up-in-the-air arrangement that created a stunning impression as you entered the ballroom.

We also provided an arrangement to go atop the ice vase sculpture created by Mastro Ice. Mike and his team created a vase shaped sculpture and our flowers completed the look. The sculpture was the centerpiece for the grand foyer outside of the ballroom. It was placed on the table that held the many wedding cookies (a Pittsburgh tradition.)

Another yummy treat at this wedding was the cake! We also provided flowers that adorned the cake stand and the top tier of the cake itself.

As the guests entered the grand ballroom corridor they were met by the place card table which was covered in a gold damask pattern table linen. We used one of the gold lanterns to create an arrangement that followed through with the theme. The place cards were lined in straight rows with romantic votive candles in between and the lantern arrangement in the center of the table.

Only a week into 2017, this bride and groom started off their year on a great note. To both of these families, we wish a happy and prosperous new year and life together. We are glad we were able to be a part of their big days.

At Parkway Florist we are  looking  forward to  many upcoming weddings  this year. There are many beautiful flowers to come, so keep an eye on our blog, or follow us on Facebook & Instagram for more!
