Bouquet Preservation - Pressed Flowers

I think I remember someone mentioning having her bouquet pressed and preserved...or maybe I'm totally making this up. Either way, I'm hoping someone can help me with this!I'd like to preserve my bouquet after the wedding, but I would like the flowers pressed (from my bouquet and my FI's bout) so that I can frame it to hang on the wall. Possibly with our invitations, but we'll see. Anyway, does anyone know of a place in or around Pittsburgh that provides such a service? Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA!

    I got some info on a lady in Beaver, her name is Linsey Lutton and her business is Flowers Forever. I'm not sure if she presses or not though, I know she does the normal preservation. I left her a message about her services a few weeks ago, actually a month now, and never heard back from her unfortunately. If you want to try her though, her contact info is:724-630-8591

    Yep, I did! I had mine done through Petal A Memory in Monroeville. The flowers were allowed to dry naturally, then put into a matting for the collage I brought her (you can provide your own frames/collages). It turned out beautifully, and I cannot wait to fill it up with pics and hang it up someday! It only cost me $90. Here is her website:http://www.petalamemory.com/If you use her, let her know Kim sent you (I think she's going to start a referral rewards program...) I think I have pics of my collage, let me find them...

    Kim - Thank you for sharing this! It's very close to what I wanted, so I'll be calling her soon. I'll definitely let her know where I heard about her. Thanks again!

    I just realized that "good luck" kinda sounds weird...what I meant to say was that I hope she works out for you. Sometimes my hands go faster than my brain, haha.

    My mom is having mine freeze dried, the place comes to the venue and picks up the bouquet, takes pictures then freeze dries each flower separately and reassembles.  My mom says you can then pick the container (frame, memory box, end table).  They are located in the northside.  Let me know if you want to find out the name of the place.
