You can definitely feel the love in the Laurel Highlands! If you didn't hear, we asked our followers to share their sappy Laurel Highlands love story on Instagram using #LoveInTheHighlands to be entered to win a romantic prize package. Over 12 days, love birds from across all three Laurel Highlands counties shared their photos and stories. Here are some of our favorites, including the winner!
It all started at Bushy Run Battlefield in 2009, when these two had a quick-run in. But the sparks didn't fly until Fort Ligonier Days in 2015 when her Prince Charming in a kilt and a red coat caught her eye, and it's been history since.
This couple has a Laurel Highlands love story from start to finish. Both being raised in the region, the small-town-feel means the world to them, and it shows! He popped the question at Linn Run State Park and they said "I Do" at the Ligonier Diamond's bandstand. Focusing on supporting small businesses, everything from the photographer and cake to hair and makeup and rehearsal dinner was provided by a local shop.
This cute couple met each other in college and knew that it was meant to be. Fast forward seven years and they have gotten engaged, celebrated marriage and welcomed a beautiful baby girl together. Their story is fit to be a Laurel Highlands fairy tale!
Who knew that two people attending a summer camp 14 years ago could turn into a family of five full of happiness?
The winner of the #LoveInTheHighlands contest, selected by random draw, married the love of her life at Ohiopyle State Park in 2007 with the sun shining and the falls cascading behind them. The happy couple decided to renew their vows on their 10th anniversary at the same spot and shared the event with their two wonderful kids!
On September 29, 2007 I married the best man I know. As we stood there with our family around us, the sun was shining and the sound of the falls were behind us. It truly was the most perfect day. We quietly renewed our vows for our 10th wedding anniversary and it was another perfect day. With our two wonderful kids beside us we were able to reflect on the crazy journey the last 10 years have been. The Falls at Ohiopyle are such a special place for us. We love the memories we have made here ❤️ #love #loveinthehighlands #ohiopyle #adecadeoflove @laurelhighlands_pa
