Nothing makes our hearts sing quite like happy pops of color and this Hotel Monaco wedding has plenty of them. Bright magenta and royal purple were the stars of this show, which began on the hotel’s infamous rooftop. There, Katherine and Evan exchanged vows under a golden hoop decked out in eye-catching florals from Gidas Flowers. A bouquet of hot pink peonies, purple anemones, red roses, and maroon amaranthus popped against the bride’s Jane Hill wedding dress from Bridal Beginning, while her groom donned a classic tuxedo with personalized touches from Surmesur Custom Menswear. After some fun-loving portraits with Kristen Wynn Photography, the newlyweds joined their guests for an evening of good food and great entertainment, provided by Steven Vance Electric Violin & DJ Music. Classic yet fun, this happy hued-wedding should have every pastel lover eating their heart out.
About the Couple
These two met on a blind date and they’re both dentists. Evan proposed before dinner on Valentine’s Day and they planned their wedding for a little more than a year later.
About the Wedding
The couple wanted their guests to remember delicious food and having fun! Katherine’s favorite detail was the flowers. She incorporated the bright florals (pink, magenta, purple, and red) in her arch and then the arch was also brought in over the sweetheart table to tie it all together. Hotel Monaco’s black and white and gold color scheme always looks great with a bright pop of color!
Their favor was a chocolate tooth from Sarris Candies, a perfect touch for the two dentists.
From the photographer…
Katherine’s sweet grandfather came to the getting ready suite to see her and he looked so dapper in his bowtie!
The couple had their ceremony on the rooftop, which was beautiful. It was May in Pittsburgh, so you know the weather is going to get a mention here – we had it all. Rain, a little hail, windy, chilly, sunny. Just a typical Pittsburgh day! I really liked the natural moment of Katherine and Evan trying hard to get that unity candle lit – I think it took three tries and finally the groomsmen crowding around the flame to get it done!
