Our Best of 2020 series is back and we’re kicking things off with the best Pittsburgh wedding flowers from the past year! In this annual round-up, we take a look back at all of the Pittsburgh weddings featured on Burgh Brides in the last 12 months and choose the most inspirational, memorable, or plain ol’ favorites for a peek back at the very best. From striking color and texture combinations to over-the-top backdrops and statement pieces, 2020’s wedding florals nearly left us speechless. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with these absolutely stunning bouquets, centerpieces, and floral focal points!
Incredibly Romantic Wedding at the Grand Concourse
We’re kicking off this series with a jaw-dropping floral installation from Mocha Rose Floral and Event Design. Imagine having your first dance as newlyweds under a blooming ceiling that is dripping with greenery and white flowers. Thanks to Mocha Rose’s ingenuity and impeccable vision, Aly and Van’s dance floor area became a dreamy oasis unlike any other we’ve ever seen. The centerpieces and bouquets of peach roses, white hydrangeas and lilies, and soft blush peonies are most definitely worth a second look too! Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Grand Concourse’s iconic staircase, which was flanked in romantic candlelight and fresh foliage.

Colorful Mountain Inspired Backyard Wedding
It’s no secret that we love color and and this wedding design from Fox and the Fleur was full of it! Charlotte and Aaron’s love of the mountains of Colorado inspired the look, which was cheerful, organic, and bright. A wide assortment of flowers – including sunflowers, ranunculus, thistle, roses, and dahlias, just to name a few – in shades of orange, blue, burgundy, white, pink, yellow, and more brought life to this backyard soiree that was all kinds of beautiful. It’ll be easy to see why this one was an all-time fave!

Elegant Timeless Wedding at the Grand Estate at Hidden Acres
Despite the neutral color palette, these florals from Julie James Design still packed a mighty punch. Spring time blooms like peonies, garden roses, and hydrangeas in white and soft pink were a feminine touch on this classic celebration. Bountiful bouquets, a variety of centerpieces, and a show-stopping sweetheart table backdrop definitely caught the eyes of guests. But perhaps the floral feature we’re loving the most is the decorated gazebo, which we’re sure made for a sweet smelling spot to say “I do!”

Dreamy Black Tie Inspired Carnegie Museum Wedding
Sapphire & Lace Design whipped up the most swoon-worthy arrangements for Heidi and Tom’s luxurious celebration. Muted neutrals and saturated hues came together beautifully to accent the chic black and white color palette. A mix of elevated arrangements and a trio of centerpieces in gold-dipped vases alongside floating candles gave visual interest to the reception space. This design was a lovely mix of elegant romance and contemporary whimsy, and we are here for it.

Girly Pittsburgh Opera Wedding
Our hearts are still aflutter for these feminine pops of pink created by Blossoms by Jilliann. Ranunculus, peonies, and tulips ranging in pink shades from peach to bubblegum to fuchsia were a bright contrast among black and white anemones and white hydrangeas. The centerpieces were full and fabulous while Allison’s bouquet was the stuff of wedding floral dreams. Any bride who considers herself a girly girl is sure to love this feature as much as we did (and still do!)!

Peach & Pale Blue Hotel Monaco Wedding
A modern color palette played in this wedding’s favor as Karrie Hlista Designs created unexpectedly beautiful pieces. Elevated and low centerpieces that are full of texture and peach and white roses, blue thistle, and eucalyptus looked flawless paired with airy table runners and navy blue pillar candles. Perhaps our favorite floral component of this wedding was the bride’s big and bold bouquet, which featured branches of greenery for an organic, inspired-by-nature vibe that we can’t get enough of.

Whimsical Laid Back Wedding at Rustic Acres Farm
While Lindsay and Joe’s wedding may have had a casual vibe, these flowers from The Farmer’s Daughter Flowers certainly kicked things up a notch. Unique vignettes of gold bud vases adorned long farm tables, while others were topped with low centerpieces dripping in amaranthus. Blush pink, burgundy, and white blooms added romance but nothing was quite as noteworthy as the backdrop behind the newlywed’s sweetheart table. Floral swags flanked the couple, giving them a sweet setting to toast to their new life together. Cheers to that!
