Jordan and Laurie’s traditional Greek Orthodox wedding was dripping with breathtaking flowers that were hand-arranged by the bride herself. The bride and her family own Gidas Flowers in Oakland, so adding a little natural beauty to this joyous occasion was a must!
But there’s way more to this wedding than just looks. This couple and their guests had a great time at the reception movin’ to the sounds of Pittsburgh’s acclaimed wedding entertainers, The John Parker Band.
The exquisite flower arrangements made every inch of this wedding pop! with aesthetic brilliance, giving wedding photographer Amber – founder of Amber Marie Photography – plenty of photo opportunities. Take a look through her pics below!
The ceremony took place at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, a stunning venue in Pittsburgh. The golden artworks gracing the high vaulted ceilings were only complimented by the gorgeous white peonies carefully placed throughout the church. The bride spent the majority of the ceremony sporting a happy smile, excited to finally be marrying her best friend!
After a fun afternoon of shooting pictures, the wedding party journeyed over to the Carnegie Music Hall for the reception. Carnegie Music Hall’s Liza Reed should be commended highly for making this all come together! The reception hall – with its unique flooring and ornate architectural details – was beautiful by itself, but when the gold seating and towering floral centerpieces were added to the mix, the room became nothing short of breathtaking. This was a wedding reception fit for royalty.
