Erin & Mark’s ‘Heinz Field’ Wedding

And no, it was not for a Pittsburgh Steeler!

Did you know that Heinz Field can be rented for weddings and other fun events?  Many people do not know that!  Our wedding on Saturday, July 16th, took us to Heinz Field for both the ceremony and the reception, which took place in the West Club area.

We were able to set up early.  Very, very large carts helped us move all of our equipment, flowers and “stuff” from the loading dock to the club area. Elegant white linens with champagne satin sashes provided the perfect touch to a sports world kind of place. There were also monitors throughout the club that had Erin and Mark’s name on it. What fun!

We finished rather quickly, and then returned later in the day with the personal flowers and bouquets.  Erin was a very understated, classic bride.  However, her dress had lots of detail and bling! Her handsome groom, in his dress uniform, is an active duty member of the US Coast Guard.

More pictures will be posted later — but we just wanted to tease you a little!  Oh, and what is a wedding at Heinz Field without a Steelers Cake for the Groom? Just the right touch, but a total opposite of the elegant wedding cake Erin chose.

Groundhog Day is Tommorrow!

So, we have rain, snow and freezing rain through-out the Midwest, and headed to the East coast.  Does anyone want to bet against the Groundhog seeing his shadow tommorrow?  I sure don’t. I feel like 6 more weeks of winter is coming our way!

In spite of the frigid weather, the snow, and the cold, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! (As well as the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 6th.)

We have all kinds of treats — flowers, snacks, gourmet baskets, and even Steeler mylar balloons available for you for Sunday!  We will be open late on Saturday, so stop in and we can help you out.

Also, while you are here, we can take care of your Valentine order to make sure that you are a “hero,” or  even better, for Cupid’s busiest day.

Remember, even snow, sleet, freezing rain won’t stop us from delivery on Valentine’s Day. Scout’s honor, we promise!   We are your local florist and we know what the weather here in Pittsburgh can be like, so we prepare accordingly.
