5.18.2019 – Sunny, Sunny Sunflowers

Danielle & Eric tied the knot!

It was fitting that their featured flower was the sunflower – because it sure was a hot and sunny day for their Pittsburgh Airport Marriott courtyard wedding!  The bride and groom said “I do” in the courtyard, under our arch decorated with sunflowers, blue delphinium, and yellow snapdragons.  The aisle was decorated with bunches of sunflowers, tied together with navy ribbons.


The bride’s bouquet (#970) had white roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, and light blue delphinium.  Her bridesmaids carried bouquets (#971) of sunflowers with blue thistle.

Guests were greeted by a place card table outside the 3 Rivers Ballroom which also featured sunflowers!  Floating candles created a warm ambiance for the display.placecard table

Keeping up with the theme, the centerpieces (#616), which were created in mason jars, featured more sunflowers!  The centerpieces also had yellow lilies, yellow viking mums, caspia, white roses, and irises, for a beautiful contrast of yellows and blues!center piece 616

And the icing on the (cup)cake(s)?  More sunflowers!

It was a lot of fun working with Danielle & Eric to make their flower vision come true.  We loved the sunny weather, which always makes the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott’s courtyard shine! We thank the lovely couple for allowing us to help on their special day, and wish them the best of luck with their future adventures!

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.
