7-18-20 Brookside Farm- Our Adventures Continue

Alexa and Chad, Our star – crossed wedding couple, had a confusing journey to their wedding day on 7-18-20.

They were first scheduled to get married in North Carolina. Covid-19 squashed those plans and a Pittsburgh, Pa wedding was  then quickly arranged. On 7-3-20,  Allegheny County imposed more new “rules”- and our wedding  couple had had enough at that point.  They quickly  sought an out of state location for their wedding. In less then 2 weeks, the Brookside Farm Barn in Louisville, Ohio was secured, Vendors switched gears, a new caterer and baker was secured and we were having a wedding in Ohio!!

You first enter Brookside Farm thru a covered bridge (cool – right?), arriving at a fully renovated and air conditioned Barn. Across the parking lot is another building that serves as the chapel.  Beautiful grounds all around the barn and farm will make for awesome pictures.

Alexa and her 8 bridesmaids all wore white dresses and carried all white roses bouquets.  The gentlemen wore shirts, bow ties and leather suspenders!  (Very cool).

Simple floating candles centerpieces decorated half of the guest tables while tall tropical centerpieces decorated the alternating tables.  (The candles were battery operated, in compliance with the Farms rules).  Mercury glass candleholders  also adorned the guest tables, with seating approximately 6 people per table.  Our Pittsburgh Cookie Table made its way to Ohio also.  Cookies were pre-boxed & placed at each guest plate on the table.

On the way up and back we saw lots of fields of corn, beans and tomatoes…… and healthy looking horses. Social distancing was practiced and masks were worn. In spite of this these “rules” a great time was had by all!

Congratulations Alexa and Chad! May your ensuing years together  be less stressful than these past 4 weeks have been.   Thank you for allowing Parkway Florist to be part of your special day!

2018 – Sometimes, the little things mean a lot!

Gone, but not forgotten!  We were honored to be able to help Jennifer with her wedding flowers on Saturday, 7/7.  A number of family members were honored in Jennifer’s bouquet through the use of special pins added to her bouquet.

Jingle Bells & Wedding Bells

As the winter solstice approaches, we move into “winter wedding” mode. Lots of whites, creams, and ivories are accented with branches and eucalyptus; in this case, sprayed gold.

Our bride carried “Patience” garden roses, “Playa Blanca” open white roses, white ranunculus,  gold seeded eucy. and dusty miller.

The bridesmaids, in beautiful hunter green dresses, carried smaller bouquets with the same theme and color palette.

The Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport Hotel in Moon Twp., was the the scene of this  elegant reception. Gold branched centerpieces containing white hydrangeas and gold eucalyptus were scattered throughout the ballroom, giving  visual dimension to the room. Low centerpieces graced the remaining tables.

Gold chiavari chairs added to the overall classic feel of the wedding & reception.
