An Artist’s Autumn Wedding for Maria & Nick

Private Residence | Pittsburgh, PA

While I 100% believe that your wedding day is about your marriage and your love, there is something deeply beautiful about having the opportunity to express your style and your talent on your wedding day and sharing that with your closest friends and family.

When an artist comes to me to design their wedding, it is the highest compliment. Whether that artist is a painter, a photographer, a graphic designer or something else. To be trusted to take an artist’s vision and make it come to life in flowers is magical. Such was the case when Maria brought her vision to me. This woman knows color and how to use it. A woman after my own color-loving heart. And the couple could not have chosen a better photographer than Tiffany from Hot Metal Studio to capture their day.

I created a Princess Style Bouquet for Maria. To be held in one arm, it was fit for a queen. The hand dyed silk velvet ribbons were from Honey Silks and Company. The perfect touch of sea-glass green that Maria had been looking for.

The statue of the Blessed Mother at St. Alexis Church has been special to me for years and I was grateful for the opportunity that The Blue Daisy Floral Designs could adorn her with the most beautiful flowers for Maria and Nick. Our designer, Mary Jo, created these florals perfectly.

When the couple had to downsize their wedding and change the venue due to COVID-19, it opened up room in the budget for an amazing floral chandelier in the tent. Adorned with fairy lights and textural fall greens and blooms, it was the perfect capstone to their decor.

How Maria describes their wedding…

“Two things coming to mind about my wedding are a colorful palette and romantic details… I guess I subconsciously treated my wedding like a painting- cohesive, abundant color and contrast with well balanced details.”

She continues “I’d say my approach was somewhat traditional without being cookie cutter/unconventional without being to trendy.”
