Mansions on Fifth in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Lauren and Middleton

Mansions On Fifth in the Fall


Lauren and Middleton got married at the historic Mansions on Fifth in Shadyside.

The venue was theirs the entire weekend!

The weekend celebration kicked off with a rehearsal dinner & cocktail reception. 

A “secret” cake from the Mother of the Groom was created with a double happiness symbol.

Middleton is from South Carolina and Lauren from Pittsburgh originally.

The couple currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona with their darling pup, Ham! We’re so happy that they chose Pittsburgh as the spot for their destination wedding!


With complete trust the couple embraced our creative direction and Red Punch helped plan and decorate this magical weekend of events.

It started out with a Save The Date. Gorgeous gold foil!

Which then evolved to a Mansions on Fifth laser cut invitation, with engraved and letterpress cards inside.

The color pallet was layered with plum hues with black and gold accents. A touch of Gatsby with a modern fall twist! The floral was rich in color and contrast! Deep purple and gray lavenders roses highlighted by suede brown magnolia leaves.

We placed candles on every table, ledge, and fireplace mantel in the Mansion.

A warm glow filled the space. As the night arrived the place was glistening in candlelight! Custom luminary, Art Deco table numbers was a special touch to the dinner tables.


Foodies at heart, a multi-station course menu was created with beer and wine parings as well! Special thought went into selecting the menu items, which represented the couple’s heritage!

The unique mansion floor plan allowed us to display the stations throughout the first floor. A custom map was created with coordinating menus to direct guest through this delicious food tour.  Just to make you hungry…..
