Our Mini-Moon in Pittsburgh // Wedding Bliss

We are married! It was an absolute fairytale.

Our wedding day was the happiest day of my entire life. I cannot wait to share more details and photos with you all! While I wait for my amazing photographer to send me our wedding photos, I wanted to share some moments from our mini-moon in Pittsburgh. Our wedding took place at Mansions on Fifth (also in Pittsburgh.) After a wonderful wedding, reception, and breakfast the following morning, our families sent us off on our mini-moon! We stayed at the William Penn Hotel. It was very special because my grandma and grandpa actually stayed here on their honeymoon! It was so fancy and beautiful.

We had a beautiful view of the city from our room. After all the wedding festivities, Nicolas and I were positively exhausted. It was so nice to take a nap and relax! We also ordered some yummy room service.

Our two very best friends Lasse and Helen had traveled all the way to Pittsburgh from Denmark to celebrate with us. They decided to stay some extra days so we could all spend some time together. We took them out to dinner at Girasole – a little Italian restaurant in Shadyside that we really like! It was snowing, and we all had the coziest time! Afterward, the four of us went back to the hotel and enjoyed some leftover pieces of wedding cake. It was perfect!


The following day was also lovely! I took Helen to Cheesecake Factory for the first time and then we did some shopping at the Ross Park Mall. We always have the best time together, and she is one of the most amazing people I know. Isn’t she so pretty?


Nicolas and I came home to the sweetest surprise!!! My mom set up a little party with tea and cake for us to enjoy while we opened our wedding presents. It was such a memorable evening, and I still smile thinking about it. 🙂


I still can’t believe Nicolas and I are married. This past week has been nothing but bliss. I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day! Thank you all so much for your love and well wishes. We appreciate every single one of them!

xx, Madison

We also mini-mooned after our wedding to recharge after all the hustle and bustle. It was amazing. How special to follow in your grandparent’s footsteps! Your mom is just the best with that little tea.
