Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Brianna + James

Here at {SHE} we love when couples include special moments such as their engagement into their wedding design. Brianna + James engagement location was in the city of love...can anyone say Paris?! They then incorporated Paris into their wedding theme starting with their gorgeous invitation, + ending with their amazing wedding cake by Bella Christie + Lil Z's + their six foot tall Eiffel Tower dessert display. The love that Brianna + James share was evident the entire evening + ending the night with an incredible sparkler exit only seemed fitting for this fun-loving couple!

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!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Patricia + Frank

When Patricia + Frank decided upon February for their wedding month, the colors of marsala, navy, ivory + rose gold seemed more than appropriate! What a perfect palette for winter nuptials -- but who would have guessed that the temps would reach nearly mid-70s that day! Even with that said, the radiant sun would never outshine such a stunning couple + their amazing wedding day.  They decided upon two historic venues for their ceremony + reception -- Trinity Center for Urban Life + the Ballroom at the Ben -- both located in Downtown Philadelphia.  Through their wedding design, we added a modern, city chic twist to traditional elements.  Fresh Design Florists created the most perfect designs -- particularly centerpieces consisting of blush, magenta + marsala florals cascading along candelabras. And once it was time to party, there wasn't one square inch empty on the dance floor as DJ Ricochet played all the best songs from yesterday + today! John Barone Photography documented the wedding day - check it out!
