We began working with Lindsay and her Mom, Amy, in the late summer of 2018 in preparation for the late summer 2019 wedding. Many conversations, and emails later, some tweaking to the plan…..and a little magic & fairy dust…..and we had a wedding!
There were actually two wedding ceremonies that took place. First, Lindsay & Alex were married in the north hills of Pittsburgh, in a traditional Russian Orthodox ceremony. Then, after a few photographs, the journey to Greentree, and the second wedding of the day!
Lindsay and Alex were then united during a Presbyterian wedding ceremony at Unity Presbyterian Church, right down the street from us here in Greentree! We furnished two altarpieces, garland for the candelabras, and vases of white hydrangea, pink roses, and pink larkspur for the ceremony. (Presbyterian churches are generally a little “understated”, so the additional flowers and candles helped to set a festive mood).
Lindsay’s bridal bouquet (#1033) was a traditional round bouquet with Sahara and Vendella roses, Gardenias, Stephanotis with pearls, and a little blue thistle. (the secret ingredient here).
Her Maid of Honor carried a bouquet (#1034) of white hydrangea, white Vendella roses and mauve Faith roses. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets (#1035) of white hydrangea and mauve Faith roses, while her junior bridesmaids carried a smaller version, with the same flowers (#1036).
The reception took place in downtown Pittsburgh at The Westin Pittsburgh. Guests were greeted at the top of the escalator by an elevated arrangement on the place card table (#121), lush with white hydrangea, white roses, pink larkspur, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus.
Inside the ballroom, the centerpieces were entirely romantic. We designed long and low centerpieces (#640) of white hydrangea, white roses, and white spray roses in gold containers, and surrounded them with votive candles and cylinders of floating candles.
Bethel Bakery supplied a yummy looking cake, which we also decorated with fresh flowers (#162). The ombre gold cake was stunning with our white roses and light pink spray roses.
It was a pleasure working with you, Lindsay and Alex, as well as your family, Lindsay, to achieve your Best Day Ever! We wish you both many years of happiness as you embark on this new adventure together. God Bless and have a great journey!
