Pittsburgh Event Planner | Buddy's Bar

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by making Buddy the Elf appear! During the Holiday Season, {SHE} prepped for Santa’s arrival with a holiday pop-up bar inspired by the movie “ELF” at Hotel Monaco. The Commoner at Hotel Monaco was transformed into a winter wonderland when Veronica’s Balloon Design decked the halls with their Christmas themed balloons. Their custom Christmas trees and swirly-twirly gum drop balloons left partygoers in awe! Loree Mayer Designs + Speedpro Imaging Pittsburgh North turned guests into elves with their custom oversized holiday card, where everyone got a chance to show off their pretty faces! The bartenders kept the cocktails creative which were inspired by Buddy’s four essential food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup! The cocktails gave everyone some extra holiday cheer! Such an amazing holiday event this was. Thank you Fisher Foto Studios for capturing this day!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | The Buchner's Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star - how {SHE} wonders what you are! Friends and family gathered to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of the Buchner’s little star! Veronica’s Balloon Design made this event shine so bright by placing the balloons transversely on the tables + floating in the sky. Hens + Chicks provided a pop of greenery to this shower with their flowers. Guests were able to enjoy star cupcakes + cookies from our favorite bakery, Bella Christie + Lil’ Z’s. Those sweets were the perfect tasty treat! {SHE} was so thrilled to create another magical moment for the Buchner’s only a couple years after their beautiful New Years Eve wedding. {SHE} loves when clients become like family! Thank you to all our amazing vendors for making this event possible! {SHE} couldn’t have done it without you!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Brianne + Sean

On one of the most popular wedding dates of the year, 8.18.18, {SHE} had a wedding that was one for the books! Brianne + Sean were a couple who knew what they wanted their dream wedding to look like + the result could not have been more fabulous. Neutrals, nudes, mixed metallic, + a splash of black created the most romantic, modern + chic vibe at The Pennsylvanian. Every detail from the mirrored dancefloor to the acrylic metallic/copper table numbers were intentional. We love when our clients are involved in the planning of the day + even want to add their own touches, such as custom black slate Pittsburgh skyline coasters + a special cotton candy surprise for guests. When {SHE} designs your wedding, we create an experience an event for you + your guests to remember! We hope Brianne + Sean remember their wedding day for the rest of their lives + continue to smile + laugh together for the rest of time!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Rachel + Andy

When our bride wanted a modern, art deco, + glam vibe for her wedding, the {SHE} team got to work! Rachel + Andy decided upon the Urban Room at the Omni William Penn Hotel for their ceremony + reception + that room perfectly complimented their theme. Once the ceremony ended, we flipped the space + created a reception to remember. The mix of high + low tables led to a geometric top dancefloor surrounded by gorgeous forest green + gold vintage lounge furniture. The head table was situated in the middle of the room + stood out with beautiful velvet chair covers, + a mirrored top that reflected the candlelight + florals creating a romantic ambiance. The final product could not have been more beautiful + easily became one of {SHE}’s favorite weddings. Rachel + Andy were one of our sweetest couples + we wish them continued love + joy!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | DAC2's 30th Birthday Party

When your older brother turns the Big 3-0, it's only right to throw him the most amazing birthday party anyone has ever seen! That is exactly what Helen + Annie did for their brother Dennis + the fact it was held in their hometown of Fox Chapel at the Pittsburgh Field Club made it that much more special! Guests entered the party through a draped hallway that featured a mega-sized portrait of Dennis. Once inside the ballroom, guests were greeted with a custom dance-floor, bar + an elevated lounge that featured three more mega portraits of Dennis that just so happened to change color throughout the night. Speaking of changing color, to spice things up for the guests + to create an element of surprise, the entire room's uplighting was programmed to change every hour, starting with green, then amber, blue, red + finally a bright white. {SHE} made sure that no detail was forgotten with custom drink stirrers, napkins, + who could miss the larger than life 3-0 framing one of the ballroom's walls! The icing on the cake was quite literally the icing on the custom cake depicting the history of Dennis's life! It was a party to remember + {SHE} can't send enough thanks to all of our vendor friends who helped make it happen!
