Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Brianne + Eric

{SHE} met Brianne, affectionately known as Bri, while shopping at her chic little boutique in Lawrenceville, Number 14, and instantly fell in love with the shop, fellow girl boss, + her mom, Michelle, who is also her partner. Brace yourself for the cutest. love. story. ever. Introduced by Bri's best friend and maid of honor, these high school sweethearts met when they were 14, Eric wore number 14 as a football player, and she opened Number 14, on 10/14/14--swoon! On the one year anniversary for the store, Eric got on one knee at the celebration. A couple weeks later while visiting the store mom, Michelle had the sweetest most concerned look on her face and said "what am I going to do about a venue!?" Easing all concerns we hit the ground planning and boy-oh-boy did us ladies have a fun time together! To know them is to love them. This super stylish mom-daughter pair knew what they loved; the wedding was truly Bri + Eric's modern yet ethereal aesthetic. Some of the best details about the wedding were THE DRESS (will never stop dying over the bow + blush), the perfect invitation that set the tone for branding, the glam transformation on an industrial + raw space, the unconventional floor plan, the gorgeous florals, and signature bicycle we borrowed from the boutique! The Pittsburgh Opera never looked so damn good! We are so happy to share in the journey and wedding magic for this family who we just love and are our friends. Evermark Studios is the team behind the amazing video trailer and Hot Metal Studio slayed the photos-per their usual awesomeness. So much so that the Kordenbrocks are published in the new Pittsburgh Wedding Magazine currently on shelves + online!
