Josh and Alison met through a friend in 2012 while Alison was attending St. Vincent College. The couple got engaged at Sugarloaf Mountain and celebrated with a trip to Attaboy and Idiom, two breweries in Downtown Frederick.
Ninety-seven guests were in attendance, including a ten-person wedding party for their July 2021 wedding, which was postponed a year due to Covid-19. “We decided to postpone it a year and wanted to move it outside to make our guests feel more comfortable.”
The traditional Catholic ceremony was held at Saint Katharine Drexel, followed by a reception, at Holly Hills Country Club. “We decided to have our wedding in Frederick because it is where we call home and there are a lot of fun things to do here. Holly Hills stood out to us because of the beautiful views.”
The couple chose a color palette of navy and dusty rose for their laid-back wedding, as well as several nods to their hometown of Pittsburgh which included a traditional cookie table and Pittsburgh-themed corn hole board. They also had a sparkler exit to finish off their Independence Day weekend wedding.
Alison is a Spanish Teacher in Washington County and Josh works for the National Institute of Health. They currently reside in Frederick.
