The bride wore a long, trumpet-style lace gown and her bridesmaids were dressed in a bright, leafy green, adding to the springtime garden feel!   Bride and groom and wedding party at Gidas Flowers, the family business, in Pittsburgh.   Top Pittsburgh wedding entertainers, the John Parker Band, joined the newlyweds Jordan and Laurie at their reception, offering hours of music, laughter, and fun for the couple and their guests.
