PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Love was in the air at Primanti Bros. on Valentine’s Day.
The restaurant was running a “Love at First Bite” promotion Wednesday, promising all couples who get engaged at any Primanti Bros. location on Valentine’s Day an exclusive all-expenses-paid wedding ceremony, complete with Primanti Bros. catering.
Primanti Bros. says Austin and Brianne were the first to get engaged at one of their restaurants. The proposal happened at the York, Pa., location.
One lucky couple got engaged at the Primanti Bros. in Pleasant Hills.
“Mostly anxiety,” said Nick Prezioso from Primianti Bros. marketing team. “I knew I was going to be here, but I didn’t want to ruin her moment.”
KDKA’s hidden cameras were in place when Doug McEvoy and Jaime Kephart sat down with family and friends. Everyone in on the plan, except for Doug, because he was the target of the romantic mission.
Jamie asked the question and Doug said: “Of course.”
“No, I had no idea,” said McEvoy. “But I started to get the feeling something was going on. It was a very good surprise. I loved it.”
The ring? Purchases back in 1998, sat in a drawer for two decades. So did the marriage license, but they never tied the knot.
“I think before I was rebellious and holding out,” said Kephart. “Like, I don’t want to do this, we don’t have to follow the way it is, and that shows with me proposing. But I think it’s time.”
Then came the second surprise, Primanti Bros. will cater the wedding for free.
Taking their love to the next level. The woman he adores and the sandwich he covets.
A love story to savor, Pittsburgh style.
All couples who get engaged will be wed at the same ceremony at the original Primanti Bros. location in the Strip District sometime in summer 2019.
