It was a beautiful wedding weekend in Pittsburgh..

Here’s a peek at the flowers from two of last weekend’s weddings…

The bridesmaids bouquets from our first featured wedding were designed in a soft, romantic pink and lavender palette, featuring peonies, roses, spray roses, lisiathus and stock. The flowers looked like they were fresh-picked from a garden!

The reception at the Hilton Garden Inn, Southpointe, had alternating tall and low centerpieces made of hydrangea, peonies, roses, and stock.

Our other featured wedding had bridesmaids carrying bright yellow bouquets of Asiatic lilies, roses and gerbera daisies with variegated pittosporum.  This was a dramatic effect against royal blue bridesmaid dresses, as reflected in the royal blue ribbon stem wrap.

Can you spot the silk flowers in these wedding bouquets?

Lots of weddings this past weekend!  Our three featured brides chose very different looks for their bouquets.  Two of the bouquets had a few silk flowers added to the fresh.  This is a great way to add the look of flowers that may be out of season, or beyond the bride’s budget.

Our first bouquet features orange alstromeria, ivory roses, tinted lavender ranunculus, blue eryngium, white stephanotis and white wax flower:

Our next bouquet is in a teardrop style, and contains pink and white alstromeria, pink lisianthus, white freesia, ivory spray roses and seeded eucalyptus:

BW-139 Bride's bouquet

Our third bride chose beautiful cherry brandy roses, orange mini calla lilies, magenta cockscomb, orange Asiatic lilies and purple peonies for her bouquet.

Did you spot the silk flowers?  The white stephanotis in the first bouquet, and the purple peonies in the third bouquet are silk.

Moving to one of the ceremony sites, the pews at St. Maurice Church were decorated with hydrangea and simple bows made of wired double-satin ribbon.

An Easter weekend wedding

Spring wedding bouquetsFor a wedding this Easter weekend, our bride chose bouquets containing assorted blooms in vibrant spring colors.

These bouquets are simple and budget-minded, but far from ordinary.  The bouquets contain carnations, mini carnations, daffodils, tulips, daisy pomps, cushion pomps, lisianthus, wax flower and solidago.

They are truly a vision of spring!
