Valerie & Travis

Their love story started 4 years ago, in an unusual place, at a hospital!  They are both nurses and Valerie was a fairly new nurse at Allegheny General Hospital in downtown Pittsburgh. One day Valerie came into work and got pulled to another cardiac floor. A fellow handsome male nurse named Travis on this cardiac floor helped her out through the day and showed her the ropes. Next thing you know Travis was ‘facebooking’ Valerie for a date. They went out to Jerome Bettis’ in the North Shore the next week and instantly hit it off. They’ve been together ever since!

Travis proposed by taking Valerie on a romantic getaway to Gateway Lodge in Cook’s Forest, Pennsylvania. Valerie thought he was just giving her a break since she was in school for her Doctorate’s! She had no idea he was going to propose. On the second night, after their fancy dinner, he said he forgot his wallet back in the room. Little did she know, he was decorating their room with candles and rose petals! When they got back to the room he proposed to Valerie!! She was so ecstatic that day and still is about being married to her best friend.

From Valerie: “Our wedding was a dream, and Travis and I were over the moon with happiness to be finally celebrating with our friends and family after 2 long years of wedding planning. It’s so hard to choose just one moment from our wedding…they were all amazing! One of my favorite moments was when everybody gathered in a circle to sing and dance to the Pitt’s version of ’Sweet Caroline’. Travis’ favorite moment was the bouquet toss and garter toss and what ensued after that! Finally, I’ve always been a Daddy’s girl so when we got to the father daughter dance I broke down in tears of joy. I think all of my emotions just hit me right at that moment! We already miss our wedding day. It seriously was THE BEST day of our lives! We are ready to begin our journey through life as the Weyands and look forward to starting our own family soon!”
