A Church Brewery, a Wedding, & a Keg

The whole reason Dave and I opted to go on vacation was because we were invited to a wedding in Pittsburgh.  I'd never been Pennsylvania and had the wonderful idea of just making a vacation trip out of it.  On the last leg of our trip was Pittsburgh and the wedding.  We didn't get to do a whole lot of sight seeing but still had an awesome time.  The bride was beautiful, the groom handsome, and lots of dancing and laughter.

We found an old Catholic church that was converted into a brewery.  The atmosphere was awesome.  Back when the steel industry collapsed, Pittsburgh became almost deserted.  They found this abandoned church  and turned into a brewery.

Dave with his tall friends.  This is what the groom's side of our wedding part looked like.  


On our way to the rehearsal dinner we got lost.  Shocking right?! I blame this one of technology since the iPhone kept telling me to go the wrong way on a one way street.  It took an extra hour to get there. And we got to cross the bridge, go through the tunnel, and see the ball park and football stadium twice!  The rehearsal dinner was at an amazing vegan restaurant.  The restaurant was also a thrift store.  So we got browse and eat!

And finally here's the bride and groom!
During the reception I dropped my camera and it no longer worked.  So you'll just have to imagine everyone dancing and having fun!

The next morning, Dave and I were to fly home.  We had secured a ride from Mich.  However, the night before Mich decided to drink a little. He created a drink that we all named the Meeche.  Which was vodka on the rocks with a lemon wedge.  Somehow Mich ended up with the reception keg.  He also didn't drive his rental car back from the reception, so it took 15 minutes the next morning to find it.  After we found the car, disposed of the keg and picked up two extra people we were ready to hit the airport.  Only it was 45 minutes till the flight took off and it was a 15 minute drive to the airport.  I was freaking out, but we made it in time. Only to sit on a plan for hours because I didn't realize I booked the flight that went from Pittsburgh to Orlando to Houston.  OMG!  It was a long flight!  We made it home early evening and all and all we had a great time.
