CEREMONY
The couple’s Catholic ceremony took place at Our Lady of Fatima Parish (2270 Brodhead Road, Aliquippa; 724/375-7626) on Dana’s grandparents’ wedding anniversary. Father Howard Campbell, who also performed the wedding ceremony for Dana’s sister, officiated.

FLOWERS
Dana’s mother, owner and floral designer of All Occasion Silk Creations (3543 Fox Chase Drive, Imperial; 724/695-2259, all-occasion-silk.com), arranged her daughter’s spring-inspired bridal bouquet using silk roses, hydrangeas and tulips in hues of pink, yellow and green. To tie in with the wedding’s butterfly theme, Susan decorated the bouquet with rhinestone butterfly accents and a Champagne ribbon secured with a green rhinestone butterfly charm. Susan also created a plethora of butterfly-themed floral arrangements for the wedding reception, including a vase of faux cherry blossom branches dotted with butterflies and surrounded by river rocks.
