Pittsburgh Wedding: The Mattress Factory

September 24, 2011

What do monograms, circles, and urban style all have in common?  They were the staring elements in this featured wedding hosted at The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh. 

Planning from Washington D.C., Gina and Domenick  brought a sense of urban chic to their personalized reception, and we loved working with them to create the perfect atmosphere.

Cocktail hour began with an authentic Italian Antipasto table resplendent with smoked mozzarella, ricotta insalata, aged parmesan, charcuterie, imported and garlic stuffed olives, grilled marinated Italian vegetables, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, tomato bruschetta, oils, crusty breads, and rosemary breadsticks. 

Our pistachio and rosemary crusted lamb lollipops were a crowd favorite as JPC staff butlered them along with shrimp cocktail shots and our popular artisan pasta forks garnished with sundried tomato pesto, red pepper caponata, olive paste and basil pesto.

A unique circular seating chart in the form of dot shaped clings was displayed on the glass doors leading into the museum lobby.  Table numbers were fashioned from metal, as well as an ampersand unitying the bride and groom’s chairs at their sweetheart table.

Dinner service included a pre-set tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil caprese salad stack with aged balsamic and a plated duo course of grilled filet mignon, spinach and asiago crusted tilapia, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus with pinenuts.  Tableside wine service featured Dreadnought Wines.

The tables were dressed with charcoal dotted table runners created by bride Gina, and boasted unique urban centerpieces.

The bridal monogram adorned stemless wineglass favors that were placed at each place setting.  The monogram also embossed the cocktail napkins and the wedding cake which was also graced with pearls to match Gina’s beautiful necklace.

Not a single detail was left to chance with Gina thoughtfully creating a continuous flow of color, monogram and circular shape.  And of course… it wouldn’t be a Pittsburgh wedding without a cookie display!  {For beautiful photography of Gina and Domenick’s celebration visit the Caitlin Thomas Photography blog HERE!}

Fresh florals by Hepatica of dusty miller, lambs ear, white tea roses, garden roses, stock, norene lillies and dendrobium orchids were a lovely yellow and white contrast to the charcoal grey 

Much happiness to Gina and Domenick from all of us at JPC Event Group!
