How they met
Sarah and Anthony had known each other for years through mutual friends at the high school they attended together. They were always attracted toward each other but it wasn’t until a few years later before their paths crossed again. One summer night, while downtown they ran into each other and it was history from there. They quickly began dating, moved into a house a few years after, and bought their french bulldog, Paisley.
They were together for 6 1/2 years when Anthony popped the question. He bought the ring and held it for over 6 months waiting for the perfect moment to ask Sarah. Finally, in September of 2016, he gathered both families at the Capital Grille for a dinner Sarah wasn’t expecting. He took a gamble hoping Sarah would order wine and had the waiter bring out a special wine glass that said “Will you marry me?”. Needless to say when her glass of wine came to the table, she was speechless as Anthony got down on one knee and proposed.
They were married by Anthony’s great uncle, Father Joseph Mele at St. Mary of the Mount Church on June 9th, 2018. Their reception was at Heinz History Center in the Strip District. Their wedding day was full of love, laughter, happy tears, and entertainment. One of Anthony and Sarah’s best memories was when it rained during their ceremony as they held hands at the altar, but the sun was shining through the windows of the church at the same time. They also loved when their eyes met for the first time as Sarah walked down the aisle. So many friends and families came together to celebrate the big day, and the celebration continued all night long into the after party.
