The Hello Productions team and an amazing team of vendors (see below) transformed the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens event space into a luxurious, winter dream filled with soft fabric draping, crystal chandeliers, and fresh flowers. Melissa and Brad’s February 2019 wedding was one that most couples could only dream of. Every detail came together to make for the perfect day for a Pittsburgh winter wedding.
Melissa kicked off her Pittsburgh winter wedding day getting pampered at the Embassy Suites Downtown Pittsburgh (Hair: Simply Captivating Salon, Makeup: Beauty by Joy.) She looked naturally stunning with a neutral look and soft, romantic hair. After her photographer (LeeAnn Marie Photography) took advantage of the city views and the beautiful architecture of the downtown building, the couple headed over separately to Phipps for their first look. Despite the sun shining brightly, it was winter in Pittsburgh… ie 30 degrees!
Prior to the main ceremony with all 160 guests invited, Melissa and Brad stepped into the Broderie Room at Phipps to sign their Ketubah in the company of a few friends and witnesses. Very romantic, traditional, and symbolic!
After a fun champagne toast, it was off to their ceremony in the Special Events Hall. Jaws dropped as guests took their seats. The entire space was covered with custom fabric, lighting fixtures and a live wall designed and executed by the Allison McGeary Floral Design team. With the addition of the candle lighting, it seemed as if they were in their own personal romantic garden oasis.
Live music was played, vows were spoken, and tears were shed. Before you knew it, Melissa and Brad said I Do and the traditional Jewish glass was stomped! It was time to celebrate!!! The guests shared their joy with a signature cocktail and private access to the complete conservatory for this Pittsburgh winter wedding.
Moving everyone into the reception space, tables were dressed with champagne linens and Pottery Barn lanterns spilling with greenery, orchids and roses. The reception included a night full of fun and dancing, with music courtesy of DJ Dean of Pittsburgh DJ Company. It was amazingly beautiful and incredibly fun Pittsburgh winter wedding! Congrats M+B
