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.

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.
