Pittsburgh Event Planner | Wagcademy

{SHE} absolutely loves when so many amazing + strong women come together to network + discuss the importance of female collaboration + empowerment. The 1st ever WAGcademy in Los Angeles, (yes SHE travels) could not have gone better. It was where WAGS came to unite + ignite! The day was full of speakers, panels + girl boss collaborations. {SHE} made sure that the décor matched the vibes of the day! The multi-dimensional step + repeat was the perfect backdrop for photo ops + interviews. Next up, attendees picked up their branded information packets + went to sit in front of the stage where there was a custom wall representing each of the different sports our WAG’s were a part of. The LA weather is a lot warmer than Pittsburgh, so {SHE} took full advantage + used the entire Hudson Loft Rooftop to create the perfect outdoor lounge. We’re talking balloons everywhere, dozens of pillows, delicious food + frozen drinks. It was an inspiring weekend + {SHE} was so grateful to be there!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | Simon Anthony Baptism

 The Arias family celebrated the arrival of their prince Simon Anthony with a baptism ceremony + luncheon filled with family, friends + perfect little details. This intimate event featured a heavenly statement dessert table. Cascading balloons framed sweet treats detailed to the scripture Psalms 100:3, "We are his people, the sheep of his pasture." Custom monogram blocks, adorable little lambs and sweet prayers for Simon Anthony were just a few of the precious dessert designs. A touch of florals + cross embellished menus created a chic table scape to capture the perfect memories of this special day for this little blessing from above. {SHE} loves when we get to take part in special events of our clients, helping to make their life milestones memorable for years to come!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | Katie + Tony's Welcome Party

With so many to-dos + formalities to come during the wedding weekend, Katie + Tony made sure their guests were welcomed to the Steel City with a stylish + super fun kickoff event. (Seriously, K + T gave their guests a wedding weekend experience that was second to none!) Branding our beloved City of Pittsburgh is exactly what these high school sweethearts envisioned for their welcome party. The historical Heinz History Center was the perfect venue and set the stage along with key elements of the 412 that were intentionally sprinkled throughout the design + details. Guests of the bride + groom from near and far took a food tour with a taste of neighborhood classics. Floral fabulousness infused with iconic cultural and sports traditions was oh-so-Pittsburgh! This couple's love for their city intertwined with their love for each other and was the perfect theme to kick off their epic wedding weekend in the 'Burgh! We are so excited to see all of their jaw-dropping wedding events featured in Whirl Magazine this month!
