Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Brittany + Stephon

Brittany + Stephon’s wedding day was special for many reasons, one of them being they got married on their own estate. SHE loves when couples pick their own property for their ceremony + reception, because it gives us a chance to creatively reflect our couple’s style as an extension of their home.

When SHE first stepped foot onto the property, we knew that the ceremony would look perfect on the front lawn in front of Brittany + Stephon’s entrance to their home. From there, guests moved to cocktail hour where they picked up their custom acrylic place card’s that were neatly placed on boxwood walls. Once cocktail hour was over, guests moved throughout the property to the gorgeous tented reception space.

This was not your typical tented wedding…but what else would you expect from team SHE. The entire interior of the tent was carpeted + the walls were draped with custom fabric, SHE even brought in beautiful, round glass tables to make guests feel like they were sitting at a dining room table. The entire mood of the wedding was simply chic +  SHE was so happy to create such a magical day for our sweet couple Brittany + Stephon!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Shana + Nate

For a couple as sweet as Shana + Nate, it was only right that SHE made sure that their vision of a cotton candy-inspired wedding came to life. As you know by now, SHE prides ourselves on being detail snobs + this wedding design was no different. Starting the unique design was the “seating chart” which was comprised of three acrylic hollow structures filled with monochromatic chic floral design + adorned each guest’s name + table assignment. 

From there, the sophisticated twist to the pastel cotton candy motif continued beyond the Omni’s Grand Ballroom doors where the space was engulfed by an ultra chic, intense monochromatic design — each table was either a dusty rose, gray or slate blue from the linens, chair pads, napkins, water goblets, candle sticks, tables numbers + of course florals. Because SHE can’t make the wedding cake just one color amongst a room of such amazing hues, it was created with delicate, holographic sugar paper cascading down the front. It was a hit + so was the inside flavor…Funfetti which perfectly describes this fun couple!

No detail was left untouched that we will just let the photos speak for themselves, but one element that SHE would be remiss to not note — the custom circular dance floor that anchored the ballroom. The marbling of rose, slate blue, gray + lavender which was an exact replica of the invitation design truly satiated every sweet tooth + wedding dreams. Congratulations Shana + Nate!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Annemarie + Luke

The stylish blush + pale pink design with gold accents was exactly the elegant + classic look Annemarie + Luke envisioned for their wedding! This couple started their ceremony at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Duquesne University + from there, guests celebrated Annemarie + Luke’s union at The Priory. The Priory’s beautiful + historic setting was enhanced with a mix of high + low floral statement pieces + greenery. Every detail was perfect down to the calligraphy seating chart + table numbers. The pinks, gold, + metallic created a contemporary ambiance at this alluring venue. {SHE} loved creating this memory for Annemarie + Luke. We wish them endless love + happiness!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Heather + Mike

Heather + Mike might not live in Pittsburgh anymore, but that didn't stop them from showing their Pittsburgh pride with a reception at none other than Heinz Field, home to The Pittsburgh Steelers! Even the unpredictable Pittsburgh rain held off for Heather + Mike to sneak some pictures on the field! Inside at the reception, guests could not take their eyes off of the head table + it's beautiful greenery + hanging candlelight created by the talented Hens + Chicks. Heather + Mike's perfect day became even better when Heather's father's band got the party started + guests danced the night away! Congratulations again to one of {SHE}'s sweetest couples, we wish you years of love + happiness.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Siobhan + Brian

Siobhan + Brian’s wedding was a chic + stylish affair! The couple envisioned a clean + elegant reception, but in a not so traditional space, + therefore decided upon The Ace Hotel in Pittsburgh. This trendy hotel is unique in that they have a grand ballroom for events, but they also have a refurbished gymnasium which can be used for cocktail hour, dancing, etc. After cocktail hour in the gymnasium, guests moved to the ballroom for the sit down dinner where a mix of clear acrylic chairs + black chivari chairs created a modern twist on traditional seating. Each place setting had a menu delicately tied around a black napkin, atop a trio of classy black + white plates in gold trim. It was a perfectly polished look that complimented the beautiful white + green floral arrangements + gold candle lit vases spread throughout each table. The night ended with guests dancing to the groovy tunes of The Bachelor Boys + eating delicious cake from Bella Christie + Lil Z’s. Scroll through the gorgeous pictures below, taken by Meaghan Elliott Photography, for more on Siobhan + Brian’s special day.
