Meredith and Timothy were married by the Rev. Robert Miller in a traditional Catholic ceremony held at St. Gregory Parish (2 W. Beaver St., Zelienople; 724/452-7245, stgregzelie.org). As is the custom, the bride was given away by her proud father, who offered her a Pez from a Cinderella-shaped dispenser before escorting her down the aisle.
The bride carried a gorgeous spring-mix bouquet of white mini calla lilies and cream vendela roses with stems of lavender lilacs and soft peach spray roses; it was wrapped in cream satin with a pearl-accented handle. The creator, Denise Kinnaman of Dee’s Florals (140 Klir Road, Pittsburgh; 412/821-4027, deesflorals.com), supplied similar hand-tied bouquets wrapped in lavender satin for the bridesmaids, a basket of multicolored rose petals for the flower girl and coordinated boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen and ring bearer.

On the Bride
Meredith chose a breathtaking champagne gown by Casablanca with a sweetheart neckline, lace bottom and beaded bodice and train from Michael’s Bridal Galleria (1130 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh; 412/366-1811). Pearl jewelry from Macy’s (multiple locations; macys.com) and a hair comb with embedded pearls and beads, also from Michael’s Bridal Galleria, were the perfect finishing touches.
On the Groom
Timothy wore a classic black tuxedo with an ivory shirt, vest and tie, all from Tuxedo Junction (multiple locations; 800/724-1800, tuxedojunction.com).
About 280 guests celebrated Meredith and Timothy’s marriage at [CK FORMAL NAME FOR THIS:]The Camelot Catering at the Columbian Room (100 Mount Pleasant Road, P.O. Box 2049, Warrendale; 724/935-4550, thecamelotbanquethall.com) and signaled the arrival of the happy couple with a Terrible Towel wave. The tables were decorated with scattered rose petals and candle-accented floral arrangements in hurricane vases, and the buffet-style dinner included rigatoni and roast beef.
In lieu of gifts, Meredith and Timothy generously requested that donations be made to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Much of the reception’s features were organized by The Camelot’s Bob Malone, who served as both wedding coordinator and chef.
Vince Carlini (Creations by Carlini; 412/771-9866, creationsbycarlini.com) created a four-tired cake, half chocolate and half white, with strawberry filling and homemade buttercream icing. The cake was decorated with a calla-lily cascade down the side and an Infinite Love[BRAND NAME?] cake topper.
St. Gregory Parish arranged for organist Ruth Stuck and soloist Katie Smith to provide the accompaniment for the wedding ceremony. DJ Steve Credo of Rockin’ Bob’s Disc Jockeys Plus (412/884-1000, rockinbobs.com) kept the reception in full swing.
