Kelly and Seth were wed by the Honorable Terrence O’Brien in an outdoor garden ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents. The Laurel String Quartet (booked through Three Rivers Entertainment; 800/988-4TRE, 3riversentertainment.com) performed the ceremonial music.
A garden theme was created by Rachel of Hepatica (1119 S. Braddock Ave., Regent Square; 412/241-3900) with various types of roses, hydrangeas, orchids, moss and sweet peas in shades of cream and green.

ON THE BRIDE
Kelly wore a fitted, white-silk gown by Tomasina (615 Washington Road, Mount Lebanon; 412/563-7788), which flared slightly below the knee and was overlayed with French lace. The bodice of the strapless gown was covered in Swarovski crystals.
ON THE GROOM
Seth’s traditional black-and-white Polo tuxedo by Ralph Lauren was from Tuxedo Junction (various locations; tuxedojunction.com)
The reception was held at the South Hills Country Club (4305 Brownsville Rd., Whitehall; 412/885-1100, southhillscc.org); the bride’s parents’ house is located on the grounds of the club. The bridal party and guests were taken by shuttle to the club, where the celebration was held in the ballroom. The bride chose to stay with the garden theme, dressing the tables in burlap cloths, moss and greenery with votive candles. Spotlights in the shape of dragonflies shone on the dance floor. Guests were able to mingle among three rooms, as well as on the outside porch.
The three-tiered, white cake was fashioned to resemble the back of a wedding dress, with buttons and a long, draping bow. (Bethel Bakery, 5200 Brightwood Rd., Bethel Park; 412/835-6658, bethelbakery.com)
During the reception In the Mood (booked through Three Rivers Entertainment, 800/988-4TRE, 3riversentertainment.com), played contemporary dance tunes, along with some oldies. The newlyweds danced their first song to "These Arms of Mine" by Otis Redding.
