Love Blooms in PNC Park

PNC Sign

The PNC Park sign, along with the statue of Honus Wagner, greets fans as they enter the Park.

“Take me out to the ballgame…”

We at Parkway Florist are just hopeless romantics, and we love playing a small part in a great story.

PNC Park was the setting for our Friday, May 4th wedding. But the story is more than just a wedding at a cool place!

Robin & Nick are two neat  people who moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago for new career opportunities.   A casual meeting at a Pirates game led to more dating & eventually, an engagement.  Now, they love our city.  So….. As they began to plan their wedding, they made the decision to have both families travel to their new home city for the wedding.   What could be a more perfect place for the nuptials & reception than where they first  met – at  PNC Park!

Right at Home Plate is where the happy couple said “I do!”, with the skyline of our beautiful city in the background.  What could be more perfect?

Our Bride, as well as her Bridesmaids & flower girls, carried bouquets of yellow & white Gerber Daisies. Corsages & Boutonnieres also featured bright & fresh yellow Gerbers.

 

The reception moved inside to the Jim Beam Lounge. Festive centerpieces, featuring baseballs with the logos of several MLB teams (including the Pirates, of course!), were showcased against the black-clothed tables. Oh – and Cracker Jack were the wedding  favor of the day!!

 

Congratulations Robin & Nick!  Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your love story!

As one of our last September weddings took place, shades of purple filled the courtyard garden of one of our favorite wedding venues. Our garden arch decorated with ivy vines and fresh purple and white flowers  created the setting for our couple to say “I Do.”

Our bride carried a bouquet of many shades of purple. Gerber daisies, lisianthus, lavender roses, thistle, and eucalyptus made for a perfectly garden inspired bouquet. Her bridesmaids also carried smaller and more simple bouquets comprised of  white Gerber daisies,  lavender roses, mini carnations, and limonium for a touch of light purple.

The bride and groom, both passionate car people & racers, provided  their own  centerpiece containers made from  license plates and formed into boxes . The plates were selected to represent all of the states from which their guests would travel to celebrate  this wonderful wedding event.

The final product perfectly married the industrial look of their passion (cars) with the garden feel of their wedding decor.  Additional car & racing decor was featured through-out the reception areas.

The bridal party was fun and excited, and the bride and groom were obviously in love, the makings for a perfect wedding day. We are so happy we could help this couple bring their dream to life. Our very Best Wishes to Allyson & Cory!  Thanks for providing a great challenge to us.
