Kaitlin and Bob want to create a magical experience for their friends and family. From the custom invitations designed with Nota Bene stationery to the lighting features directed by Luxe Lighting & Atmospheres, the wedding reception will be one for the books.

 

Kaitlin and Bob selected two separate but cohesive looks for their cocktail hour and reception. Once the I Do’s are announced and guests arrive for cocktails, they will be greeted by rich hues of gold and pink, textured fabric, and lounge areas to relax. As cocktail hour concludes, french doors will open to the grand ballroom where guests will find themselves floating through an angelic paradise of roses, sparkle, and candlelight. It will be an evening filled with love and romance … and surprises!

 

Stay tuned for more details to come!

Hello Helps Elizabeth Forward School District Host Prom for Students with Disabilities May 18, 2013

For Life Skills’ students in seven schools in the Mon Valley and South Hills area, May brings the opportunity to attend a prom that they’ll never forget.

 

High school students from Elizabeth Forward, Chartiers Valley, Bethel Park, South Fayette, Baldwin, South Allegheny and Keystone Oaks school districts regularly meet to interact for social and educational opportunities. As one of their activities, the schools have included a prom in the host school’s gym with lunch provided by the cafeteria and entertainment by the staff. This year, Elizabeth Forward School District is hosting the prom and wanted to enhance it to be more like a high school prom. Through one of our administrators, they were connected with Hello Productions‘ very own Director of Marketing & Events, Colleen Geletko.

 

Colleen became involved and offered her event planning services free of charge. After meeting with district administrators, she began spreading awareness about the event within the event industry and signed on some of the region’s most talented vendors. Bella Sera in Canonsburg, PA will serve as the venue of the prom, donating the venue and providing a very fair catering package which has been sustained by generous supporters including U. S. Steel, PJ Dick Inc and P.E.M.CO Educational & Contract Furniture. In March, female students visited Allegheny County’s Project Prom store and selected dresses, shoes and accessories, while male students are being provided suits from staff and students at the districts. On the morning of the prom, Image One Salon will visit Elizabeth Forward High School and South Hills Beauty Academy will visit other participating schools to provide haircuts for the male students and light make up and updos for the female students. When the students arrive at Bella Sera, each will receive a boutonniere or corsage provided by Dragonfly Florist.

 

At the prom, students will be entertained by Comedy Magician Lee Terobosic and DJ Mike Ley of Marquee Wedding Company. Josh Mariana Photography will provide photography and videography services, as well as a photo booth for students to capture their experience with friends. A student from each school will be recognized on the Congeniality Court. The prom will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, 2013.

 

Next year’s prom will be hosted by another of the seven districts. Hello Productions and many of the vendors hope to stay involved with this annual event and help it to continue to grow. For more information on how to get involved with this year’s prom, please contact Colleen Geletko at Hello Productions. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

 

Mark Your Calendar for Bridal Show Season December 10, 2012

Want something to look forward to after the holidays? Mark your calendars with these events for the bride-to-be! If you have recently gotten engaged, you may be wondering where to start. Attending a bridal show is a great place to gather inspiration and spend a fun-filled day with fashion, friends and free samples! There are several shows in and around Pittsburgh that take place in January.

 

In order to get the most out of the bridal show (and survive with a smile), here are a few tips:

 

Use the Buddy system. Remember in elementary school when you had to have a buddy wherever you went? Bring someone with you – your mother, mother-in-law, sister, bridesmaid, friend or finance. They can help you meet vendors and give opinions. And if someone doesn’t seem convinced, dangle the promise of free cake!

 

Take advantage of vendors. You will find businesses that cover every aspect of your wedding and even some you haven’t thought of! A great idea is to create an email account to use just for your wedding planning, which you can then cancel after you’re married. Take notes on each vendor’s brochure so you remember who you liked when you get home.

 

Enjoy yourself! At the end of the day, it’s all about you and nothing has to be decided that day. You can take advantage to line up vendors or just spend the day dreaming of your wedding. Use your “wedding email” to register for raffles – many vendors will raffle off a honeymoon. Someone has to win and there is always the chance it could be you!

Hello Productions Plans The Knot’s Pittsburgh Cocktails & Connections July 10, 2011

The Knot, the one-stop wedding planning solution for brides with a national magazine and website, selected Hello Productions to plan its most recent networking event, which took place in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. Their Cocktails & Connections Networking Event served as a thank you party for all of the event professionals they work with as well as an opportunity for Pittsburgh’s finest in the event industry to network and exchange ideas with one another.

 

A sexy red, black and white décor transported attendees back in time to an evening in the 1920s (think: The Great Gatsby), when a speakeasy was the place to be. Hello Productions handled the planning for this event, but couldn’t have done it without the help of many fabulous vendors who offered their products and services as well.

 

The Mansion at Maple Heights, located in Shadyside, was the setting for the event. It is a renovated turn-of-the-century residence, originally built in the early 1900s. It houses a bed and breakfast and several beautiful spaces perfect for a wedding or event. Stained glass windows, hardwood floors and a grand master staircase all add to the ambiance of this space.

Guests mingled with one another and “characters,” including flapper girls, while sipping the signature cocktail, “The Flapper,” provided by Clique Vodka. Those with a palate for wine enjoyed a tasting in the Study of the mansion provided by Engine House 25 Wines.

La Crème provided delicious bite-sized hors d’oeuvres and several food stations set up around the space. All Occasions provided the rentals, including furniture to create the lounge atmosphere, and the linens, which added color to each room, were provided by Mosaic. Bill Chisnell provided floral arrangements, lamps and some additional décor to really bring the theme to life.

Michael Will Photography

In addition to the lighting, Wenning Entertainment provided music to keep the crowd entertained throughout the evening and Lee Terbosic entranced guests with his strolling magician act.

To end the night on a sweet note, Vanilla Pastry provided bite-sized desserts served by the flapper girls and ESSpa, Remarkable Roses, Pretzel Crazy, and McCormick & Schmick’s provided favors for the guests, while ESSpa also provided the raffle prize.

Other vendors providing services for the event:
