Miranda+Kevin’s January wedding at Phipp’s Conservatory in Pittsburgh was an intimate day surrounded by close friends in the natural flora setting.

Miranda who is originally from Canada was attending Slippery Rock University. During this time Kevin and Miranda met randomly while they were both attending the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Art Festival. After they began talking, they found out they were only living twenty minutes apart and quickly fell for one another.

Kevin gets a ton of credit for creating one of the sweetest proposals. Miranda prefaced this story with “Kevin doesn’t cook”. One morning while Miranda was sleeping Kevin got to work in the kitchen. He set out to make mini pancakes and used chocolate sauce to write on them. On eight tiny pancakes surrounded by strawberries he spelled out “Marry Me?” He took everything into the bedroom where Miranda was still asleep. He then enlisted the help of their cat Percy to wake Miranda up, by telling her Percy had something to show her. When she sat up and opened her eyes the proposal was spelled out in front of her. Miranda was in total shock but once she realized she wasn’t still dreaming, said yes!

Miranda and Kevin didn’t want to take away from the natural beauty of Phipps and chose to keep the details simple and chic. There were tea candles lit throughout the space creating romantic vibes. To keep with the natural theme, the table favors included seed packets with words “let love grow” on them. Miranda wore gorgeous lace embroidered dress while Kevin was dressed in a traditional suit with a fun floral bowtie. The bridal party wore deep purple dresses while the guys wore black suits incorporating the purple with their ties.
