A Beautiful Gem on Pittsburgh’s North Side – Calvary United Methodist Church

On March 18, 2017, We made the short journey to Calvary United Methodist Church in Pittsburgh’s North Side. It is located at 971 Beech Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15233, near the Community College of Allegheny County.

This Church was built in 1892 and was recognized in 1972 as a historic landmark. It was added to the City of Pittsburgh’s list of Historic Destinations in 1977.

Calvary’s Congregation is warm and welcoming, conducting Sunday services at 11am each week as well as providing meeting space for other small community groups.

The Ornate Style of this church sets the tone for many beautiful wedding ceremonies. The crowning jewel in the church is the 30′ tall Louis Tiffany stained glass window located at the rear of the church. There are also over 200 smaller stained glass windows located throughout the church.

Flowers for Men – Boutonnieres

A boutonniere is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. Boutonniere is the French word for buttonhole. Boutonnieres are usually reserved for special occasions such as proms, funerals, homecomings, and weddings. Traditionally, a boutonniere is worn on the left lapel. While in the past the flower itself was often a carnation, today many different varieties of flowers are used. Different colors and flowers may also be chosen to better coordinate with whatever else is being worn. Roses, orchids, berries, grasses, herbs, and so on.

Shown here are some recent examples of boutonnieres we have done.

Ceremony Sites – Traditional and Non-Traditional

Pittsburgh’s New Botanical Garden. Parkway Florist had the pleasure of providing flowers for the very first wedding held at the Pittsburgh Botanical Garden on 5/19/2015. A huge stone fireplace graces the outdoor patio area while a grassy area with rustic doors becomes the ceremony center of attention. Split rail fencing helps to define this area. Green grass, simple pots of flowers and good friends make for an enjoyable wedding experience here.
