Mike and I are renewing our vows in February as part of Pittsburgh’s attempt to get in the Guinness Book of World Records. Next year will be a year-long celebration of Pittsburgh’s 250th anniversary since the city was named in 1758, and an estimated 1000 couples will renew their wedding vows at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland. As exciting as it will be to be a part of the event, it will be even more meaningful to be saying our wedding vows to each other once again, just a few blocks away from where we said them to each other in 1999.

Although I’d love to be able to fit into my wedding gown again (ha!), the backup plan is to wear our Steeler jerseys. How sweet would it be for the Steelers to win the Super Bowl one weekend, and for Mike and I to renew our vows in Big Ben and Hines Ward jerseys the next weekend?

    We’re very excited you’re coming. Just a heads-up that the event is TOTALLY SOLD OUT. We are amazed and thrilled. See you there!
