pittsburgh steelers Quarterback Kenny Pickett married his fiancée Amy Paternoster over the weekend in an extravagant New Jersey wedding that included a stylish nod to the organization that selected Pickett in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Pickett, 25, paused in his offseason training with the Steelers on Saturday to exchange vows with Paternoster, but the organization was still represented at the celebration, which was held at Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange.
Pickett’s former quarterbacks coach, Tony Racioppi, posted an image on social media showing a large ice sculpture of the team’s logo sitting on a table where the raw loaf was served.

Pickett and Paternoster, both New Jersey natives, they met when they were young and coached in their respective sports.
«We started training in this place when I was like 12 and Amy could have been 10, so I just kind of grew her from there,» Pickett told People magazine in an interview published Monday.
«We never spoke, and then she went to Princeton and I went to Pitt. We came home on a break from college and we saw each other at a party and hit it off.»
