Greek life at Penn State brought together Mary and Ian, who dated for seven years before he popped the question during a beach trip with her family. A year after their marriage at a pandemic-limited celebration at the groom’s father’s elegant car barn, they welcomed 268 guests for a second ceremony and reception of West Coast meets rustic elegance in the same venue. A vintage car theme carried the day, drawing friends and family to the Find Your Ride escort exhibit of spray painted mini cars. The floral patterns in nude and neutral tones with toffee roses were among Mary and Ian’s favorite details. Guests mixed it up at a botanical tonic bar featuring craft cocktails and mocktails with dehydrated produce, herbs, spices, bitters and botanical accompaniments. At dessert time, they perused dozens of morsels baked by loved ones for the cookie table in Pittsburgh, a nod to Mary’s hometown.
