Bliss and Jeff
Jeff and I have known OF each other for a really long time. My mom and Jeff's dad have worked together for over twenty five years and even though we both knew the other person existed, we didn't meet until another one of our parents' co-workers set us up at a Pirates game in September 2015.
Even though Jeff called me "Liz" at the game (as if my name isn't memorable!) I agreed to go on a date the week after we first met. One date led to two and after attending Jeff's friends' wedding together, we were official!
It was important to us that our out-of-town guests, which made up almost half of the attendees, got a true "Pittsburgh" experience. We had our guests stay at the Omni William Penn; the rehearsal dinner was at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco; and the reception was at the Pittsburgh Golf Club. Neither of us had ever even heard of the Pittsburgh Golf Club before we began the wedding process, but once we found about it and toured it, we knew it was the place for us!
We were lucky enough to tie in some really neat family and personal history with our wedding vendors. For starters, I got my wedding dress from Bridal Beginning, which is where I also got my first communion dress! I'm not sure which dress was puffier! As my "something old", I was blessed to wear my grandmother's wedding band, which just so happened to perfectly match Jeff's wedding band that belonged to his grandfather!
For our honeymoon, we traveled to Denmark and Switzerland for the trip of a lifetime! The highlight of the trip was skiing the Swiss Alps in the picturesque town of Zermatt, Switzerland (and seeing Justin Bieber at our hotel in Zurich!!)!
