I love how wedding cakes have evolved from tiers and tiers of white fondant to something more organic and beautiful. Maggie Austin Cake of Washington DC epitomizes organic and beautiful.


Lingrow Farm – Rustic Romance

I have an unhealthy obsession with barns! I can enjoy weddings without barns but I guarantee you my wedding will have one. I may have found my own local venue front runner with Lingrow Farm. Located in Leechburg, PA, Lingrow Farm is one of The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2010 winners. It’s easy to see why. The location is easily accessible from Pittsburgh, offers all of the comforts of a high class resort coupled with the romance of a rustic location.

Seating capacity: Unlimited for an outdoors wedding! The barn’s main floor holds 240 guests, the stable room and deck hold 125 guests.

Overnight: To add to the convenience of the location the 1865 Farmhouse is available for overnight stays for you and your bridal party if needed! The rehearsal dinner is included in your event fees and Lingrow Farm recommends a local restaurant, 1844 Restaurant, for your rehearsal dinner.

Catering: Garda restaurant is the exclusive caterer for Lingrow Farm. The farm staff will provide bar service for you, while you provide the beverages which means major savings!

Lingrow Farm is even happy to arrange the music or DJ for you and your guests to party until midnight!


Sign Me Up

I get lost. Frequently. I hate that I don’t have a navigation system. I don’t see why a wedding should be any different so help your directionally challenged guests with some signage! Wedding this-a-way…

From playful to rustic these signs tell your guest everything they need to know.

More Bridal Options in Pittsburgh October 5, 2010

Think you can only find your wedding dress in a big city? One Pittsburgh bride proves that’s not true – after trips to LA and NYC she found her wedding dress at Tomasina in Pittsburgh. If you haven’t heard of Tomasina you need to see some of their beautiful dresses!

How vintage and romantic!

How did I hear about Tomasina wedding dresses? After looking to this beautiful real wedding for inspiration. It didn’t take place in Pittsburgh but the Pittsburgh bride did come here to buy her wedding dress so it still counts as a real Pittsburgh wedding!

The bride’s Tomasina dress is just to die for! And look at that beautiful backdrop. I guess I understand why she choose to get married in Idaho.
