Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Kay + Mike

Kay + Mike are truly each other’s best friend! On the morning of their wedding day, Kay + Mike both got ready in the same room. As best friends + soon to be husband + wife they could not imagine getting ready separately on such an important day. Their ceremony + reception was held at The Mansions on Fifth in mid December. The weather outside was cold but the mood inside was full of warmth + love. The red, gold + green palette created a romantic holiday vibe as each dining room had beautiful greenery + candlelight from The Blue Daisy Floral to complete the look. It was a perfect night for Kay + Mike as guests danced the night away to the sounds of The Bachelor Boys. {SHE} was so happy to create a magical night for our lovely couple!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Chelsea + Brian

Happy one month anniversary to our beautiful + sweet {SHE} couple, Chelsea + Brian! Their ceremony was at one of Pittsburgh’s iconic chapel’s Saint Mary on the Mount, + from there, guests traveled to Oakmont Country Club where they walked into a ballroom bursting with color. Chelsea has a special love for all things Kate Spade, so it made sense that her dream wedding reflected the brand’s vibrant, bold + colorful style. {SHE} loves to mix colors + patterns, so each table had a combination of vivid flowers, paired with either jumbo gold statement vases, or a collection of Delft pottery. {SHE} can’t forget to mention the head table’s floral masterpiece created by Hens + Chicks which was one of the focal points in the room.

However, not to be outdone, the custom navy + floral dancefloor was the clear focal point winner. When Chelsea + Brian saw the room before their guests, they immediately stepped onto the dancefloor + Brian gave Chelsea a few practice twirls while both soaking in the moment. At the end of the night, Chelsea loved the dancefloor so much, she asked to take a part of it home to frame + remember forever. {SHE} was so happy to make Chelsea + Brian’s dream wedding come to life + we wish them not only a happy one month, but many more wonderful anniversaries together!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Tori + Alex

There is only one way to describe Tori + Alex's wedding...it was EVERYTHING! At {SHE} there is no better feeling than when a client's vision + our vision becomes a fabulous reality! Tori + Alex's dream wedding started by getting married under a jaw-dropping 10ft chuppah covered in a mix of gigantic paper + real flowers. As the doors to the ballroom opened, guests literally stopped in awe! The room in front of them was a statement of its own. The centerpieces ranged from 7ft white lamps to gorgeous florals + floating candles. As the band began to play, guests ventured onto the mirrored dance floor to party the night away. It was truly a picture perfect night + thanks our always amazing friend, Joey Kennedy Photography, {SHE} will never forget any of the beautiful moments. We wish Tori + Alex a lifetime of love + many more special memories.

What's better than having the wedding of your dreams? Having two of them! Madison + Tim had an intimate yet picturesque ceremony + reception in Arizona.

After guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the main lobby of the Heinz History Center, they moved upstairs to the ballroom that had been transformed into a candlelit + chic, Fall wonderland. It was a perfect evening full of love, laughter + dancing, + {SHE} could not be more happy for Madison + Tim!
