Reveal | Wedding and Showcase at the Tent at Schenley Plaza

November 7, 2017

Many business bucket list items were checked off this April, when Melissa of Devoted to You and I, paired together with the Parks Conservancy and a dream team of vendors, gave away a wedding to one deserving couple.  Flash forward seven months, and I’m thrilled to show you the results of the Pittsburgh wedding community coming together for TWO common goals- Heather and Brian’s wedding day + a unique bridal showcase.  As Victoria of Burgh Brides shared in last week’s FEATURE, this event was a shining example of “community over competition!”

The partnership of two event planning companies, with two distinct design styles, for one cohesive and beautifully executed event is no simple feat. However, Melissa and I each mixed metals with garden elements to invoke an urban garden feel. Each of our visions, brought to life by an incredible team, are showcased below. Look close and you’ll even see behind-the-scenes shots of our teams, and bridal show attendees, in action!

From where did my vision come? From the florals themselves! I’ve long awed at the beauty of a vine crawling up an urban building (like our own Pittsburgh courthouse) or florals overgrowing in urban areas where you’d least expect them. I worked with Kelly of Fox Petal Floral to create masses of greens falling from thin metal stands, florals housed in glass cubes, and vines crawling up drape for a ceremony backdrop. Brides often bulk at the idea of using heavy greens. I aimed to show couples that greens can be just as beautiful as flowers! Place settings featured antique botanical plates, linen napkins and elaborate gold flatware. Farm chairs popped with a favorite detail of mine- large bows!!!

Melissa was inspired by color- plum, navy, golds and greens -all featured in a napkin ring and enlivened in incredible floral orbs by Community Flower Shop. Melissa’s other touches included facetted gold flatware, colorful goblets, gold vine charger plates and a metal-backed chair to tie in the urban vibe.

After flipping the Tent at Schenley Plaza from ceremony to reception in just 17 minutes, we surprised guests (and toasted our team) with flowers in champagne!

Ernest Quintana, 78, was at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont when a doctor – appearing on the robot’s screen – informed him that he would die within a few days.

A family friend wrote on social media that it was “not the way to show value and compassion to a patient“.

The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

Mr Quintana died the next day.

Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

When Alex Song seems as if he is gliding across a pitch pinging the ball around it all looks so natural – but it is actually the result of a lot of hard work.. Alex Song looks in good touch as he shows off passing skills in the gym on Instagram with West Ham fitness coach Eduardo Parra
