The beautiful ceremony was officiated by Larry Goyda (412/271-7464, meaningfulmarriages.com) in front of Bella Sera’s dramatic, rustic fireplace.

Flowers

Lilli Maeg Floral Specialities (724/926-4010, lilli-maeg.com) created bouquets and arrangements using a fresh, lively and lush garden theme. They wove in peonies, orchids, roses, hydrangeas, tulips, freesia, ferns, lavender, and even curly willow branches with hanging votives to add drama to the table arrangements. The bride and groom planted two hydrangea plants from the wedding, which will continue growing throughout their lives together.

On the Bride

Nikki wore a strapless gown of silk floral jacquard adorned with rhinestones, crystal beading and sequins from Alfred Angelo (multiple locations, 866/826-4356, alfredangelo.com).
 

On the Groom

Brad’s traditional tux was rented from American Commodore Tuxedo (multiple locations; 800/225-5889, actux.com).
 

Cake

Nikki and Brad went slightly untraditional with a selection of cupcakes from Vanilla Pastry Studio (6014 Penn Circle St., East Liberty; 412/361-2306, vanillapastry.com). They made sure to include devil’s food—a favorite of one of their grandmothers—in addition to other sweet cupcake combinations: vanilla with caramel buttercream icing along with chocolate cupcakes topped with peanut butter icing.
 

Music

DJ Jeremy Ganss (814/221-0737, jeremyganss.com) helped the couple and their guests live, laugh, love and dance the night away.
