Ceremony:
Ten years after meeting at the University of Pittsburgh, Shilo and Brad married during a simple ceremony officiated by Pastor John Custer (pastorjcuster@orchardchristianfellowship.com, 724/684.3443) at Horizon Point at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (1001 Lafayette Dr., Farmington; 724/329-6359, nemacolin.com).

Flowers:
Nemacolin’s “ThemeWorks” created centerpieces that incorporated lots of candles. The bride’s bouquet provided a vibrant “pop” of purple.

On the Bride:
Shilo looked stunning in an ivory fitted dress in lace (from Bridals by Danielle, 203 South 13th St., Philadelphia; 215/670-9500, phillybride.com). She purchased jewelry and a veil (which she forgot to wear when getting ready) from Clarissa Boutique (1700 E. Carson St., South Side; 412/432-3299, clarissaboutique.com).

On the Groom:
Brad and the best man wore custom-made tuxes by Frank Cicco. Cicco had already made the best man a tux before and knew his sizes, but came directly to Brad’s home for a more personalized fitting (133 W. North St., Butler;724/287-5814, ciccotailors.com).

Reception:
The celebration of this wedding lasted the entire weekend, with golf and a cocktail party the day before. Nemacolin handled many of the details for the main event, leaving Shilo, Brad and their 160 guests free to enjoy a festive weekend away. Even the couple’s dog, Bruin, was included in the joyful events.

Cake:
Nemacolin’s catering staff created a sophisticated butter cream-iced dessert with vibrant purple cake inside.

Music:
The highlight of this wedding was the dance party in celebration of it. College friend DJ Digital Dave kept everyone out on the floor (412/656-7193, djdigitaldave.com).
