Nea and Joshua married during a traditional ceremony set in the garden villa at Springwood Conference Center (1000 Indiana Road, Verona; 412/793-7453, springwood.org). The intimate beauty of the grounds was the perfect backdrop for the couple to exchange the vows they wrote for each other.
Family friend Joy Scalzo-Monticue made bouquets and boutonnieres comprised of purple flowers as well as centerpieces with African violets for the reception.
Nea’s uncle, Bob Allan of Photos on the Go (412/680-2696, firstname.lastname@example.org), photographed the wedding.
ON THE BRIDE
Nea wore a strapless satin gown with a beaded lace overlay from David’s Bridal (davidsbridal.com).
ON THE GROOM
Josh sported a Calvin Klein pin-striped tux from Men’s Wearhouse (menswearhouse.com).
Josh was very familiar with his reception site, the Penn Hills No. 7 Volunteer Fire Department: His dad is the fire chief, and he worked there in his teens and early 20s (125 Universal Road, Penn Hills; 412/247-1892). The entire event brought together family and friends — many of whom pitched in for DIY decorations — for a celebration and meal (by Jaden’s Catering, 4727 William Penn Highway, Monroeville; 412/373-8575, jadenscatering.com).
Donald Thiel (724/640-1590), one of Josh's high-school buddies, knew exactly what to play to keep guests content — and grooving.
