Pittsburgh Catering: A Pittsburgh Opera Wedding
September 24, 2011
The Pittsburgh Opera is a fabulous event space for an urban vibe with an eco-conscious platform. With three different spaces available for rental, it is flexible for sizing and the rental prices are both fair and affordable. An added perk!– use a green caterer like JPC Event Group, and follow green event guidelines set forth by the opera and you receive an extra discount on your rental price.
Jessica and Josh utilized two spaces for their ceremony and reception held on September 4, 2011. Planning from Seattle, this urban couple created a marital fete that distinctly reflected them.
A Quaker style ceremony was held to unite the couple with friends and family members speaking of their memories throughout the courtship and their support of the marriage. We loved the jumbo white balloon decor that lined the aisle and the stage.
After the ceremony, cocktails were served and then the dramatic room reveal took place with a parting of the red velvet opera curtains! Tables were arranged in long feasting style and decorated with vintage vases and mason jars that Jessica painted in the wedding accent colors.
Customized pins served as escort cards and assisted the guests in locating their seats.
The menu of sustainable and organic foods was comprised of our Grecian Table display with parmesan artichoke dip, greek salad skewers and spanakopita triangles with dill dip. Hand butlered mac n’ cheese cupcakes, shrimp shots and proscuitto wrapped melon medley were passed by JPC staff members.
Dinner was served family style with a mesculan salad course, apple cider braised shortribs, butternut squash ravioli with brown butter, sage and hazelnuts, asiago mashed yukon gold potatoes and haricot verts with red pepper strips.
A kiss to seal a lifetime of happiness for Jessica and Josh….
and then an exit stage left to start their new life!
