The Pennsylvanian – WOW – what a gorgeous setting for a gorgeous couple! Molly and Kevin utilized the uniqueness of this stunning Pittsburgh setting in many ways.
Cocktails were held outside under the rotunda (heat lamps were brought in to make sure guests felt comfortable in the cool May air), escort cards were carefully positioned on the luggage cart in the lobby. Instead of a traditional guestbook, Molly and Kevin gave the guests the option to leave their best wishes on a vintage card catalog system.
As guests were invited into the main dining room, they saw beautiful centerpieces by Allison McGeary Florist atop tables dressed in caramel bark linens. Each centerpiece had a a mix of white hydrangeas, peach roses, dusty pink roses and greens – some in tall glass vases and some in lower pink mercury glass for a mix in height. Tablescapes were enhanced with apothecary jars filled with white stones and succulents.
Guests dined on an heirloom tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad topped with a basil bouquet followed by grilled filet with red wine sauce infused with whole red grapes and Gorgonzola crumbles – a specialty of Rania’s Catering. The breathtaking wedding cake was custom designed by Kevin’s aunt for a sentimental touch. The floral on the cake matched the floral arrangements, it was almost hard to distinguish which flowers were real and which were sugar! After the fabulous meal, guests were ready to get up on the dance floor and party to the sounds of Free Spirit.
