Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Laura + Luke

When you look up the definition of "rustic glam" you're bound to find photos from Laura + Luke's special wedding day. With it taking place on New Year's Eve it was a no brainer that sparkle had to fill their day - from beginning to end (literally).  Laura, a total fab bride -- just check out that in-cred-ible Pnina Tornai bridal gown + Jimmy Choo Pumps! -- wanted to be true to her love of rustic, natural elements but also her passion for fashion + luxe design.  The couple exchanged their vows before family + friends at St. Vincent Basilica in Latrobe - an absolutely stunning church with exquisite architecture + holiday decor. Everyone then danced the night away at Bell's Banquets - a converted + beautifully updated barn with crystal chandeliers.  Not one detail was missed! To accomplish the rustic glam motif, clear acrylic elements were intermixed with gold + mixed wood finishes with the acrylic guest tables, wooden + sequined menus, a custom monogram lucite + wooden sign that hung above the sweetheart table + so much more! In preparation for the countdown to 2017, a balloon drop awaited with monogrammed confetti within as well as noisemakers from which "Luke + Laura" gold metallic laser cut tags hung + a dessert spread compiled of customized NYE cookies, glitter fortune cookies, dessert shots, live donut station + the couple's favorite cookies just to name a few.  Fair enough to say that there was no better way to close out 2016 + start not only a new year but a life together!!
