Purdue University is a very special place to Andrew and Cecilia. They spent four years together on campus, and some of their best memories are Purdue-related. Purdue has always been a part of Cecilia’s life. Her parents also met at Purdue, and Cecilia grew up attending Purdue Football games and learning the school’s traditions (her dad played football at Purdue, and her mom was the Golden Girl and the Girl-in-Black Feature Baton Twirler in the band!) Andrew and Cecilia decided early on that the most important aspect of their day was not flowers, decor, food, or design — but getting all of their friends and family together in one place. Since most of their guests attended Purdue as well, it was only fitting that the Weiland Wedding be a “homecoming” for all the people they care about to come together in celebration for a Ross-Ade Stadium wedding!
They met their freshman year at Purdue while they were both on “sober duty” for their respective fraternity and sororities. Cecilia approached Andrew to thank him for hosting the party at his apartment, as she thought he was a senior! They started talking and discovered they grew up a half-hour from each other and even had some mutual friends. Later that night, Andrew dropped Cecilia back at her dorm, and they had their first kiss – the rest is history! After graduating from Purdue, Cecilia moved to Arlington, Virginia to attend graduate school at Georgetown, and Andrew moved to South Bend, Indiana to work. They had a long-distance relationship for over two years. Andrew proposed on August 6, 2016 in Grand Haven, Michigan at the Coast Guard Festival with all of his family present, and now they live in Arlington, Virginia.
