Ceremony and Reception

These two kids from the country were married by Bryan Gratton, of Discovery Christian Church (services in various locations; 724/779-1010, discovertogether.com), in a sunny, outdoor ceremony next to a pond. The picturesque landscape at Armstrong Farms (Ekastown Road, Saxonburg; 724/352-2858, armstrongfarms.com) was the perfect backdrop for a do-it-yourself affair—the couple handmade many details, including stationary and centerpieces. Medure's Catering, (2500 New Butler Road, New Castle; 724/654-5465, medures.com) put together a terrific meal of parmesan-crusted chicken, ham, roasted potatoes, penne pasta and the bride’s personal favorite, eggplant parmesan.
 

Flowers

Gehres’ Gift & Flower Shop (383 East State St., Knox; 814/797-1198, gehresflowers.com) created a gorgeous bouquet of white gerbera daisies that complemented the white daisy centerpieces handmade by the bride and groom.

On the Groom

Dessert Table

The couple skipped the cake, opting instead for a dessert table created by SweetHouse Bake Shop (118 Grand Ave., Mars; 724/687-0170, sweethousebakeshop.com). SweetHouse supplied Russian teacakes, mini oatmeal cream pies, peanut butter cups, and five varieties of cupcakes for a heavenly spread augmented with additional contributions from family and friends.
 

Music

DJ Matt Donnelly (412/389-3654, djdpgh@gmail.com) created some ingenious remixes and spun classic wedding tunes for this “Killer” (a play on the bride’s maiden name) wedding.
