Holley, meanwhile, admitted he had no idea of ??the ceremony was scheduled for Saturday, but she wished the couple well.
“We should be happy to be married,” said Holley, a self-described fan Steelers.
Holley is not the only local who does not know much about the big day is No. 7.
Neither Isaac’s friends and Max Sklarsky Goebert Edgeworth Sewickley Hills, shrugged when the subject came as they sat together at Starbucks.
“I do not really have a strong opinion at all. I do not care,” said Sklarsky.
In Sewickley, outnumber hockey fans can be fans of football, the majority agreed on a wedding Roethlisberger in these parts is not entirely local draw, for example, a wedding Sidney Crosby.
Holley said the marriage of the Pittsburgh Penguins center would create a storm of rumors much larger in this city.
“Sidney Crosby still lives here, and he could marry,” Holley said warmly.
However, now that private matter Roethlisberger is coming, some locals are curious about the details – the place for the reception, flowers, clothing, rings, and, of course, the church.
“Are you married in a church?” Holley question.
The Rev. Bruce Cote, associate pastor of the Church of Christ, said Roethlisberger, a Findlay, OH, natural, and Harlan, a native of New Castle, regularly attend services there. The sanctuary is large enough to accommodate the wedding, which apparently can include 500 people.
“On Sundays we have about 1,400 members,” said Costa, and lacks the 250 children who also attend.
Costa did not officiate the wedding, and told me he has remained in the obscurity of some of the details. But he said the Church has received a number of calls since the news broke recently about their decisions at the headquarters of the ceremony.
Cake for hair and makeup, flowers and photographs, none of the local merchants patch Sewickley admitted being involved in the wedding.
“I’d be a nervous wreck,” laughed Tina Echement, Pasty shop owner finally, wedding cakes are just one of many specialties.
If Echement baking and assembling the wedding cake, she said: “Probably would not be able to tell.”

“For all we know, Big Ben might be going with all white phalaenopsis orchid as” he said.
More Photo Bee photographer Bruce Erik Steffin, who works in the main street of the study, said he was hired to capture days of Big Ben. He has photographed other weddings of celebrities, including top female golfer Cristie Kerr.
“Often there are very strict requirements placed on suppliers, including the photographer,” he said.
“Many times when someone photographs a wedding of celebrities who have done it before. They want someone who is mature enough and will handle an event as well.”
Companies in the bush. Nebo Road, near the church, said he is concerned about problems that may arise on Saturday.
Andora restaurant does not intend to change your time or offer a special Saturday in honor of the day.
“Nobody is really talking too much, to be honest,” said Mike Shram, a waiter at the restaurant.
Raymond Craig, owner of Mt. Nebo stations, said he knew nothing about the wedding until he came to work on Monday.
“For me, Ben is a quarterback who I root for every Sunday to play football. He puts his pants the same way we do,” said Craig.
Craig has no intention of closing either. Who knows? Some of the guests have to stop pop, cigarettes and petrol, he said.
“I do not see it affecting my business. It could increase,” he said.
Craig has owned the business for 30 years. The last time an event of this magnitude occurred was about two years ago, he said, when President George W. Bush came to Sewickley Heights for a dinner fundraiser. The attendees parked in the church and a shuttle transported everyone to dinner, he said.
Ohio Township police Chief Norbert Miklos of the said six department officials are working on Saturday to secure traffic flows, residents can come and go – and businesses are not affected much. Police also ensure safety in case someone is making plans for a “Wedding Crashers” sequel.
On the other side of the Mt. Nebo service station is a field that leads to Duff Road, near the church entrance. Employees joke that if someone were serious crashes could be reduced through the field to reach the church.
However, Miklos said that the person probably will find a black car. Part of the work his department is making the stragglers who can not afford the wedding.
“We will have officers on the ground around the perimeter,” he said.
Goebert, Edgeworth, said he believes that people pay too much attention to celebrities do not have their own life. The ceremony will not affect your life, and will not be part of any Big Ben’s wedding next Saturday.
“I’d rather see something like ‘Big Trouble in Little China,’” he said.
