Maggie Hardy and Shawn Knox tied the knot in Colorado Saturday. Hardy is president of 84 Lumber and of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.

Standing on top of Aspen Mountain in Colorado, Maggie Hardy and Shawn Knox tied the knot.

Hardy, the billionaire president of building supply company 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, is the daughter of Joseph A. Hardy III, who founded both businesses.

After meeting last year, the Pittsburgh-area couple traveled to Aspen, Colo., where they held a small, private wedding, followed by a reception at The Aspen Mountain Club on March 30. The couple had been engaged since March 9, according to Maggie Hardy’s Facebook page.

Wearing an off-white dress with a long-white shawl, Hardy walked toward Knox who was standing under a clear arch covered in white flowers. With a view of snow covered mountains, Hardy and Knox said, “I do.”

Hardy has served as president of Washington County-based 84 Lumber since 1992 and lead the company to over $1 billion in sales in 1994 and over $2 billion in sales in 2004, overseeing the day-to-day operations of over 250 stores, manufacturing plants, custom shops and wood product centers nationally.

In 2000, she added to her responsibilities when she took over leadership of Nemacolin, and has led the resort to receive recognition from the travel industry like AAA, Forbes Five-Star, Condé Nast Travelers and more.

Forbes identified Hardy as being worth $1.3 billion in 2017.

Hardy and Knox are currently on a surprise honeymoon, said Amy Smiley, vice president of marketing for 84 Lumber, and could not be immediately reached for comment.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
