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!

Exquisite, Inspiring + Empowering are just a few words to describe a private dinner soirée entitled A Seat at the Table. {SHE} invited fifty of Pittsburgh’s girl bosses to wine + dine, talk business + inspire each other to dream bigger, aim higher + support each other in their entrepreneur pursuits! Chic glam met cultural trends as the event was inspired by the movie Black Panther.

Rosette inspired chair sashes were placed on each fruitwood chiavari chair in the dinner’s rich hue palette of marsala, gold +chocolate brown. Being the detail snobs that we are, {SHE} made sure that the spirit of Wakanda was infused into every aspect of the event. From the signature cocktail, to the custom Caribbean inspired menu + the guests attire, every element eluded to the award winning cinemas melanin magic! A Seat at the Table like the movie Black Panther received rave reviews in all categories!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | Sofia's 3rd Birthday Party

Sofia's 3rd Birthday was a PAW-ty! The Paw Patrol took over Urban Air Trampoline Park for Sofia's big day + Skye from the Paw Patrol dog squad made a special guest appearance. With the help of MissElaineous Balloons, Skye was able to fly in on her jetpack + soar over Sofia's fabulous dessert table. The {SHE} team made sure no small detail was forgotten at this PAW-ty. Each of Sofia's guests got to eat like a dog for a day using either a hot pink or blue dog bowl + then drink out of a white dog bone. The dessert table was filled with custom PAW-ty teats from our favorite bakery, Bella Christie + Little Z's Sweet Boutique. From the tennis ball cake pops to the brightly colored dog paw print cookies, no guest left hungry. Thank you to Studio Hayes Photography for capturing all of the gorgeous photos below.
