Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Alex + Michael

Pittsburgh meets the Netherlands was the wedding vibe Alex + Michael wanted so {SHE} made it happen! This beautiful wedding mix was inspired by the Groom’s family background + the Brides hometown. This wedding was the perfect way to give their guests a glimpse of the groom’s family history while still keeping things stylish + sleek! {SHE} loved doing this Delft inspired wedding!

Alex + Michael’s wedding was on a snowy day mid-January but that didn’t stop this couples special day! The ceremony was simple + elegant with large statement pieces from Hens + Chicks. The blue + white florals complimented the bride’s gown perfectly. Hens + Chicks made the reception even more amazing with their floral centerpieces in custom delftware. The blue palette really made guests feel like they were in the Netherlands! Mastro Ice’s custom AHM ice sculptures added some spice to the room wowing everyone! The details were perfect + so was the Elite Show Band keeping Alex + Michael’s friends + family entertained. This wedding was one for the books! {SHE} had fun planning every minute of it. Congrats to Mr. + Mrs. Hugens!

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Sarah + Wouter

Sarah + Wouter’s love story is a special one that centered around family + tradition. They met as collegiate tennis coaches + formed a fast friendship that quickly turned to love. Their cocktail hour + reception combined the family + tradition aspects, as it was held on Sarah’s family’s gorgeous estate. Years ago, the Short family built the most amazing barn on their property for their kids to get married in + to date, Sarah was the second out of four children to get married at the barn.

When guests arrived to the property, they grabbed their hanging escort card + made their way to the cocktail hour where Sarah + Wouter arrived in the coolest vintage red Mustang. After cocktail hour, guests traveled a few short feet to the Short family’s barn that was decorated with gorgeous greenery + flowers created by the florist, GreenSinner + immediately had a dance set to get the night started. It was a perfect night full of memories that Sarah + Wouter will never forget!

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 | Sawina + Karan

Sawina + Karan's wedding celebration in Pittsburgh was a two-day affair full of tradition, bold colors, beauty + endless memories. {SHE} was honored to work with a dream team of vendors such as Elegant Affairs Inc. who was responsible for all of the stunning floral + décor + Jorge Santiago Photography who fabulously captured the weekend of events. Friday night, the festivities started with a sangeet that completely transformed the Pittsburgh Rivers Casino banquet hall into a room full of life + magnificent color. The night started with traditional dances + ended with a replica of a marketplace from India opening for guests to either trade in their custom keys, which they were handed when they walked in, for an intricately  beaded purse, or shop for other items.

Saturday, the ceremony + reception were held at the historic Omni William Penn hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. The ceremony was held in the Urban Room which connects to the main ballroom where dinner + dancing took place. Before guests even went to the wedding ceremony, they participated in the baraat tradition where the groom processes in on a white horse. The ceremony space was truly breathtaking, with a gorgeous white porcelain elevated aisle + flowers lining the makeshift altar, it looked amazing from every angle. As guests processed into the main ballroom, twinkling lights, massive floral arrangements + makeshift trees took guest’s breath away. The sides of the ballroom were separated by a custom marble dance floor + a sweetheart lounge for Sawina + Karan that included not 1 but 3 hanging chandeliers. It was truly a weekend to remember + {SHE} wishes the happy couple a lifetime full of love.
