Not even a global pandemic could stop this cheerfully bold and perfectly Pittsburgh micro wedding from happening! Thanks to COVID-19, Tabitha and Nicolas were forced to alter their wedding plans not once but twice. What was once supposed to a 100-person industrial style celebration on the North Shore ultimately turned into a sweet soiree for 50 in the bride’s parent’s backyard. With the help of their incredibly compassionate and creative vendors – including Day Of Pittsburgh, Bistro To Go, K. Flowers Designs, and the bride’s own sister Holly Hanna Floral – the couple was still able to have a magical, colorful, and CDC-approved wedding! String lights from EF Lighting dressed up an open tent from Eventioneers, while wooden tables from Vintage Alley Rentals were adorned with funky votive holders, copper charger plates, and greenery and floral runners. In this day and age of weddings, anything goes and that includes cutting an ice cream cake instead of a traditional wedding cake. Even with masks on, guests danced into the evening with entertainment provided by Pittsburgh DJ Company. Small but mighty, this bright wedding captured by Christa Lee Photography is nothing short of a burst of happiness!
About the Wedding
Tabitha and Nicholas made the decision to cancel their original 100-person April 15th wedding due to COVID-19. The original plan was to have a private 15-person ceremony and an industrial city reception on the North Shore. Two weeks before their new date of June 27, they opted for a smaller, 50-guest backyard wedding, due to all the COVID-19 restrictions and for the safety of their guests.
They had to get very creative with their budget due to the fact that they completely had to change their look and switch to an outdoor reception. With the guidance of their vendors – including a sister as a wedding florist – they were able to put together an industrial, modern city wedding under a tent in bride’s parent’s backyard. They used bold florals, fun votive candle holders, string lights, and upgraded rental chairs to create their dream look from their original venue. They had to use all disposable table settings and found gorgeous affordable chargers plates to help give the tables an elegant – but CDC-approved – look!
Ice cream cake! We couldn’t get our knife through the cake haha.
It decided to downpour minutes after leaving the church. We took all of our outdoor pictures in the rain in a closed street in Dormont. How fun!
Watching guests dance 6 feet apart with their masks! Nothing could stop the party!
