Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Ryan + Michelle

SHE started our 10th year strong with an amazing wedding celebration for an even more incredible couple, Ryan & Michelle Shazier. For those that don’t know this couple, Ryan is a Pittsburgh Steeler, who suffered a severe spinal cord injury in December of 2017 during a Steeler game against the Bengals. After undergoing extensive surgery, Ryan began his road to recovery & ultimately walking again with Michelle confidently standing by his side + encouraging him each day.

During this recovery time, Ryan & Michelle were supposed to be getting married in Ryan’s hometown of Miami, but ultimately postponed their big day. A few months later, SHE stepped in + helped Ryan + Michelle plan their dream wedding day that they most definitely deserved.

The day started with a beautiful ceremony inside the Pennsylvanian in downtown Pittsburgh. The altar consisted of a stage surrounded by 4 large cherry blossom trees + a gold mirrored aisle. After the ceremony, guests ventured outside under the rotunda while the SHE team + our incredible vendor friends flipped the ceremony space to make it part of the reception.

With such a large guest list + family + friends from all areas of life, Ryan + Michelle decided not to have a seating chart, but instead created a cocktail reception where their guests could progress through the space to the different food stations + mix + mingle with each other. The ceremony stage was then transformed into the DJ booth, where later in the night both Michelle + Ryan took a turn as DJ…+ kept the crowd dancing all night!

SHE was so honored to create a fabulous wedding + reception for Ryan + Michelle + we wish them many more years of love + happiness.

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!
