When a florist gets married, you know it’ll be a beautiful wedding!   Laurie’s family owns Gidas Flowers, and she herself is a talented professional florist at the shop.  Not surprisingly, this was one of the most lush and breathtaking weddings the John Parker Band has ever been part of!   Though both the wedding and reception were indoors, Laurie and her team made the Holy Cross Church and the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer feel like a garden, a perfect setting for this beautiful couple on their wedding day. 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. Before long, nearly everyone was on the dance floor celebrating!   After the wedding, Laurie sent us an email, saying: “Thank you John- everything was perfect! Everyone has been raving about the band! You really put on a great party!”   Her father was equally impressed, and told us “..You and your band MADE the night, thanks for the great job.”     We’re grateful to Pittsburgh wedding photographer Amber of Amber Marie Photography who captured this stunning wedding, allowing us to share it with you:

After being married at Sacred Heart Church, Jessica and Adrian, along with their family and friends, celebrated at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s Music Hall Foyer. This amazing venue was the perfect backdrop for the Bride and Groom.

Guests enjoyed the music of a pianist (and a surprise dance!) during cocktail hour in the Balcony Foyer before moving to the main hall. With Pittsburgh’s top wedding band and event performer John Parker and The John Parker Band providing awesome entertainment, there was surly no shortage of special moments for Brian Reid of Reid Portraits to capture (a sampling of those photos is below) Jessica and Adrian’s guests danced all night!

A venue this majestic is pretty much all you need for a great wedding. Fun family, friends & great music doesn’t hurt either!

I have had so many great engagements at the Carnegie Museum Music Hall Foyer – and I always tell my family how nice it is. So imagine my surprise when my favorite people in the whole world came to visit!

My client & the Carnegie staff both have known Sara & Wes from when they were born & were very gracious, & surprised at how big they had gotten – though I’d like to keep them 5 & 6 for a little while longer! 🙂

And my daughter, Sara, wanted to hear her favorite song – “Sara Smile”

Happy days… Here’s to family! – john
