From the dreamy desert sunset color palette to the magical whimsy-meets-boho vibes, this wedding at the Energy Innovation Center was damn near perfection. Hanah and Tyler wanted to showcase some of the city’s most unique spaces and the grittiness that makes it so special. Mission 1000% accomplished. Prior to the party, the pair exchanged vows in the most perfect Pittsburgh fashion – at the Carrie Blast Furnaces, where vintage carpets dotted the makeshift aisle and a geometric backdrop stood behind the couple. Then it was off to the EIC, a Pittsburgh wedding venue that is known for its breathtaking views of the downtown skyline. Metal chairs from All Occasions Party Rental and a mix of wooden farm tables and traditional ones covered in creamy taupe linens from Lendable Linens filled the industrial space, while amber water glasses, agate table numbers, and silky table runners added visual interest. May Chester Designs brought texture and warmth with her floral arrangements, which included roses, baby’s breath, and tons of pampas grass. Every single detail was – in a word – flawless, thanks to some help from Madeline Kelly Events. And there was no one better to capture this effortlessly cool couple than Rachel Rowland Photography. Talk about goals.
About the Couple
While visiting their hometown of Pittsburgh, Tyler asked Hanah if she wanted to take their dog, Luna, on a hike at a nearby park. This is something they do often, so she didn’t think anything of it. When they got there, Tyler took Hanah to a trail they hadn’t hiked before, so she was excited! They eventually made it down to a waterfall and Tyler started laughing nervously and she knew something was up. It was then that she turned and saw a large wooden sign hanging on a tree that said “Hanah Rae, will you marry me?” with pictures and flowers. She obviously started crying and said YES!
About the Wedding
Hanah and Tyler left no detail of their day go without some form of personalization and the end result shows. Both the bride and groom wanted to create a day that showcased some of the most unique spaces Pittsburgh as to offer – including hosting a ceremony at the Carrie Blast Furnaces. Hanah and Tyler are so effortlessly cool and opted for natural decor with tons of dried boho elements, which really popped in the more industrial styled spaces they selected for their ceremony and reception. A sea of mismatched wooden chairs and a vintage carpet aisle were just a few details that added major whimsy to their ceremony. May Chester Designs brought so much warmth and texture to the tablescapes with her floral arrangements and the tables glowed in the space thanks to no shortage of candlelight. The newlyweds could not rave enough about working with May and how she took their inspiration and completely wowed them with the end result!
From the wedding planner…
I LOVED Hanah and Tyler’s vows. Hanah read the lyrics to Maggie Rogers’ song “Love You for a Long Time” and I nearly lost it.
