Maeve and Eric wanted nothing more than to have a grand celebration for their special day. However, with all the constant regulation changes, they were tasked with changing their venue five weeks before their celebration! With the help of some flexible vendors and their Hello Productions Wedding Planner, Christina McLachlan, they were able to fully transform the Pennsylvanian Ballroom into an evening Central Park wedding.
Before the ceremony, Maeve and Eric had their first look in downtown Pittsburgh. Photographer, Rachel Rowland, did a fantastic job at capturing the moment and their pictures truly capture their love and happiness.
Their ceremony took place right outside the venue. The area was filled with white garden chairs and the aisle was lined with fresh florals that looked as if they were growing directly out of the brick. They even went the extra mile and bought blankets for their guests to ensure that they wouldn’t get cold while watching the two love birds tie the knot. Maeve even walked down the aisle to a four-piece orchestra.
After the ceremony, guests were escorted into the ballroom where they were greeted by tables with umbrellas and hanging lantern lights to capture the essence of Central Park. They were encouraged to eat, drink, socialize, and get pictures in front of the beautiful greenery and leaf walls and floral archways separating cocktail hour from the reception area. In the center of the cocktail hour space, Green Sinner outdid themselves by creating a full flower cart that guests could use to create their own bouquets. And in the midst of that cart, was a special flower. The person who used the special flower in their bouquet won one of Baron Batch’s paintings. It was truly an even more incredible night for the winner.
Once the reception started, guests walked underneath the floral archways and were greeted by a vision and replica of Central Park directly in the Pennsylvanian Ballroom. Their tables were set around the outskirts of the room with centerpieces that captured the essence of Central Park. They included candles, white and green floral arrangements, as well as glass lanterns for the table numbers. Green Sinner continued to impress guests by bringing in four trees set up in the corners of the dance floor, an indoor fountain, and lots and lots of extra florals and greenery spaced throughout the ballroom. Maeve and Eric also created two lounge areas for their guests, one on each side of the dance floor, detailed with white vintage couches, chairs, and tables from Vintage Alley Rentals.
Maeve and Eric also created a special sweetheart table to sit at during their reception. Surrounded by black detailed gates on three sides, their table was decorated in a beautiful linen from Lendable Linens and more white florals and greenery. They had trees and plants coming out of vases on top of the gates and the couple sat in comfortable chairs fit for royalty as they dined. It was truly a magical place to eat their first meal as husband and wife.
As the night went on, guests were treated with late night pretzels from a pretzel cart! This couple did not skimp out on any details and truly encompassed the essence of New York City’s Central Park right in the middle of a ballroom in downtown Pittsburgh!
