Nikki and Matt's wedding was at the Duquesne Power Center Ballroom in downtown Pittsburgh. I love this venue because of the skywalk to get from the parking garage crossing over Forbes Avenue to get into the ballroom and two walls of the reception room are all windows for beautiful views of the city. Once you entered, the style of the reception flowed flawlessly. They went for a very romantic garden feel with the colors navy, peach, burgundy, and lots of greenery. The seating cards were biodegradable paper cards with little flower seeds inside.
Next was the guest book which was a beautifully painted globe featuring their last name and wedding date and a world of space for guests to sign ;)
I love the non-traditional guest 'book' that newlyweds can use in their home as a display piece.
In addition the the guest book, Nikki and Matt opted for a scrapbook so guests can right their well-wishes and express their happiness to the couple. Here you can see a glimpse of their beautiful table center pieces with the photo booth scrap book. It was so much fun to make the print designs to go along with the romantic garden theme. They opted for the 4x6 vertical print with four images on a soft green layout with watercolor flowers along the top and bottom.
The backdrop was our matte white along with our hanging green garland.
Here is an up close view of the matte white backdrop with the hanging greenery. This was our first time putting these two pieces together and it was just perfect for the photos! I overheard a handful of comments on how much guests loved the look of it - thank you!!
If time permits, I like to print a few single image prints of the newlyweds as a little thank you. Here's a single image of Nikki & Matt - I love this photo!
Let's not forget the lovely cake and the crafty gift table - both fitting the style of the night :)
One item that I didn't get a chance to capture - there was a ice cream sundae station! Talk about perfect for a July wedding!
I was a pleasure to work along side these note worthy vendors, too. Be sure to check them out if you're needing services in any of these fields!
