“True love knows no height,” and for Stefanie Lombardo and Brian Leonard, the saying was literal to Brian’s magical proposal at 11,000 feet elevation. While enjoying a ski trip in Vail, Colo., with friends, Brian, an NFL running back, popped the question at the top of Eagles Nest Ridge. Their friends caught the entire proposal on their GoPro, and Brian flew both families in for the special occasion, surprising Stefanie at the bottom of the mountain! The couple, who met three years prior through a mutual friend, decided to host their elegant nuptials in Pittsburgh, Stefanie’s hometown. They hired The Event Group to create an enchanting wedding ceremony at First Lutheran Church and reception at the Omni William Penn Hotel for 250 guests.
