Lauren & Eric’s Nature-Inspired Wedding at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden!

May 28, 2013

It’s really been too long since I’ve last blogged, so I am excited to share this Soiree by Souleret wedding with you! I met Lauren through a former client. She is a passionate and talented hair stylist at Dean of Shadyside with such a vibrant personality!

Here is her wedding story…

“Eric and I met at church in 2006. I was the one to approach him and asked him if we could have coffee together. After one month and several coffee dates, we lost touch completely.  We both moved on. In the beginning of 2008, I received a phone call from Eric. I asked him how he got my phone number. He said that he remembered my last name and had looked it up in the Yellow Pages. We both fell in love quickly after that. As my mom said ‘They’re attached at the hip,’ we got engaged.”

“Today, we all know how important it is to have good friend, great hair and clean living. Our wedding was inspired by nature and organic living. It made perfect sense to have it at Phipps- a place just as natural and organic as we had imagined. Our wedding was unique in that we had so many family and friends involved. A good friend, Richard Sciulli, created hydrangea tree centerpieces that actually sat on the tables surrounded by river rocks. Those centerpieces set the tone for tree-patterned lighting in the reception hall. Richard also styled my hair that morning. My aunt stood as my matron of honor, my brother was our reader and my uncle officiated the ceremony. My bouquet was created using family members’ favorite flowers. And, in memory of special friends and family, we reserved empty seats at the ceremony and reception. To take the stress off of our family, we hired our wedding coordinator Shayne Souleret.”
