Hello Productions was inspired by the easy-going events that have been trending on social media in California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, etc. for The Knot Pro Mixer. The team wanted to bring that spirit to Pittsburgh using hearty tropical flowers, and fresh fruit to keep Summer alive!
The ACE Hotel was a perfect weathered space to be filled with sun-washed color tones, fresh citrus and starry-night lighting (EF Lighting). The goal was to have guests feel like they just entered a vintage desert resort at sunset.Hello Productions incorporated different textures into the event design including wood, metal, velvet and glass. All of the pros that partnered with us had a hand in creating the overall story for the night! We're talking textured, sun washed linens ( Mosiac Inc.), eclectic lounge vignettes (EventSource Rentals + Vintage Alley Rentals) and tropical citrus floral designs (Julie James Design). A few more of our favorites included:
- The frosty nitrogen frozen Paloma (Bella Christie & Lil Z's)
- The sweets table with a custom water-color painted cake of the sunset along with adorable cactus cookies (Tasty Bakery)
- The delicious menu including french onion crostini, parmesan potato tots and friend chicken (ACE Hotel)
- The entertainment including a caricature and interactive origami (Howard Bender Caricatures + Cirque Du Papier with Michael)

A special thank you to the wedding pros who made this party possible!
