Susan Whitacre writes, “What a fabulous fall weekend we spent at the historic Bedford Springs Resort and Spa, celebrating the marriage of my daughter, Madeline Werner, to Charlie Salazar with fellow WT Alumnae Wendy Werner Leiti ’78, Leslie Braun Basilone ’77, and Lisa Braun Corna ’73. The weeklong festivities kicked-off in Pittsburgh where out-of-town guests enjoyed a grand Ducky Tour through the streets of downtown and right into the rivers! We rode the Incline to the top of Mt. Washington to take in the breathtaking view of the city at dusk and to toast the couple. The next day we took to the skies over Pittsburgh in a private plane for a bird’s eye view. Off to the Boathouse at North Park for a perfect sunset over the lake and a cool evening around the fire pits… more laughing, toasting, and dining! The next day we were off to Bedford Springs, drinking in the beauty of the fall weather and changing leaves as we cut through the mountains. Madeline and Charlie exchanged their vows with a beautiful backdrop of an intimate waterfall in front of 125 or so family and friends. The reception was magnificent… every detail planned and prepared and presented by the bride and groom. We partied the night away…and the next two days too!
