Pittsburgh’s Roethlisberger weds in quiet ceremony
It would be as close as most would get to one of the most anticipated _ and most secretive _ social events in the city’s recent history.
Fans and media alike were kept at a safe distance from the ceremony, the details of which were closely guarded. Little information about the nuptials was leaked beforehand, though the police presence around the Christ Church at Grove Farm _ where both Roethlisberger and Harlan are members _ indicated this was no ordinary Saturday.
Fears of a fan frenzy led local resident Gina Schrauder to bolt for the city.
“I want no part of this,” she said early Saturday morning.
Yet it never came. There was no tailgating. No terrible towels. Only a parade of luxury cars, trucks, shuttle buses and SUVs.
Guests were required to show an invitation and a photo ID to get in. Moule didn’t have a problem with the secrecy and considered the light turnout a sign Pittsburghers were content to let the Roethlisbergers have their space on their big day.
“We all have private weddings, why can’t they?” Moule said.
Will marriage change him? Schrauder doesn’t think it matters.
“As long as he keeps playing the way he’s playing, it’ll be fine,” she said.
