Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Marcia + David

Marcia + David’s wedding was the sweetest way to end {SHE}’s 2018 season. Not only was their wedding in Hershey Pennsylvania, home of the famous Hershey kiss, but their celebration lasted two days + brought us into 2019. Their ceremony was a romantic dream with floor to ceiling draping + a gorgeous platform stage + chuppah. After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a long cocktail reception where they listened to the sounds of The Sterling Strings, a four string group from New York.

The next day, New Years Eve, was when the real party took place. Guests were transported to the Hershey Country Club for a moving cocktail reception. Not sure what a moving cocktail reception is, let {SHE} explain. The party starts in one room with food + beverage stations, then after awhile a door is opened to another two rooms where there is even more food + beverages. After a few speeches + a lot of delicious food, guests traveled to the final room where there was a massive dance floor, a balcony to watch fireworks, an amazing assortment of custom desserts + two DJ’s to keep guests dancing all night long. It was a party to remember + {SHE} was so happy to create this amazing celebration for our sweet couple Marcia + David.

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!
