Abby & Nick's Stunning Celebration at The Harper Event Venue: A Rainbow of Wildflowers from Pittsburgh's Eco-friendly Wedding Florist


At Bramble & Blossom, we're passionate about creating beautiful wedding florals that are kind to the environment. Today, we're thrilled to share Abby and Nick's stunning June 2023 wedding at The Harper Event Venue in Meadville, Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. This vibrant celebration showcased the magic of wildflowers in a bold, rainbow color palette, perfectly reflecting the couple's classic-yet-colorful style. We've been dying to share these photos of our first event at one of the coolest venues near Pittsburgh!

Why Abby & Nick Chose to Work with Pittsburgh's Top Eco-friendly Wedding Florist

From the very beginning, Abby and Nick knew they wanted an eco-friendly wedding in Pittsburgh. Their vision? A celebration bursting with life, with friends and family dancing the night away, showing off all their quirky personal styles, and keeping waste to a minimum. With our mutual commitment to sustainability in mind, we sat down to our initial consultation excited to understand more about their floral dreams. Right away, we discovered their love for daisies and their desire for a bold, wildflower aesthetic. We knew exactly how to bring their vision to life!

Blooming with Local Beauty

We sourced stunning local and seasonal wildflowers for Abby and Nick's wedding. Delicate daisies, as requested by the bride, danced alongside vibrant purple sweet peas, playful poppies, and a sprinkle of larkspur. Using locally-grown flowers not only minimizes the environmental impact of transportation but also ensures the blooms are at their freshest and most beautiful. We also incorporated lush greenery and foraged elements, adding a touch of natural elegance and showcasing the beauty of the Pennsylvania landscape.

A Rainbow of Joy

Abby's desire for a bold, yet 'big day' color palette was our inspiration. We embraced a big, bold, rainbow palette, including rich purples, deep reds, and pops of blue, perfectly complementing the vibrant wildflowers. Hints of greenery and pops of yellow added a playful touch, mirroring the couple's classic-with-a-twist style.

Bringing the Vision to Life

Every floral arrangement played its part in creating a cohesive and enchanting atmosphere at The Harper Event Venue. Abby's bouquet was a vibrant cascade of wildflowers, tied with a simple ribbon for timeless elegance. The centerpieces brought the rainbow theme to life, with a playful mix of colorful blooms and lush greenery displayed in recycled glass vases. The ceremony arch was transformed into a blooming masterpiece, overflowing with wildflowers in a vibrant rainbow tapestry. The entire scene perfectly complemented The Harper's ambiance, creating a truly magical space for Abby and Nick to exchange vows.

Beyond the Blooms: Eco-Conscious Touches

Our commitment to sustainability went beyond flower selection. We used vases, candles, and ceremony décor from our rental collection, minimizing waste. We also discussed with Abby and Nick the option of composting the flowers after the wedding, allowing them to continue their eco-friendly journey even after the celebration. Live plants from their ceremony were given as gifts. We also made a fun escort card display, including over 130 individual bud vase florals - guests got to take these colorful favors home!

A Celebration of Love and Sustainability

Abby and Nick's wedding was a beautiful testament to the power of wildflowers and a commitment to sustainability. The vibrant blooms created a stunning backdrop for their special day, reflecting their personalities perfectly.


In their own words, Abby says, "Loved working with Jessica and her team! They were all so warm and welcoming and from the very first meeting, I felt like they wanted nothing more than to help us have a beautiful, (eco friendly!) day. Loved their ideas and all of the physical supplies they have to use (table numbers, stands, arch, etc). We wanted a wildflower theme with lots of color, and that's what we got! Loved how it all turned out!"


We, at Bramble & Blossom, were honored to be a part of their eco-conscious celebration.
