Phipps Conservatory ~ Cara & Ben

Love was in bloom at Cara and Ben’s garden wedding! The charming couple was married in June at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, where an outdoor ceremony was followed by an evening of music and dancing with City Heat, one of Pittsburgh’s best wedding bands!

Bride Cara was a vision among roses, dressed in a fitted lace trumpet gown with a dusty mauve sash and a tiered veil, as she walked down the outdoor aisle to meet her groom. Her new husband Ben wore a classic black suit with a white tie, and the pink dresses worn by the bridesmaids complemented the colorful landscape.

The couple’s summer wedding was made perfect with creative touches throughout the evening. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails among the lush greenery of the venue’s gardens. In the reception hall, tables of white were surrounded by gold cane-back chairs and decorated with bright flowers planted in dark cauldron pots. To find their seats, guests looked to packets of seeds, which held the numbers at each table.

These photos, taken by Edward at Sky’s the Limit Photography and shared by the newlyweds, capture the elegance and charm of the evening, as well as the fun! The couple had a blast dancing with family and friends to the band’s fantastic playlist.

We are grateful to Cara and Ben for inviting the City Heat Band to be a part of their special day, and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
