VisitPittsburgh has announced the winner of its biggest Steelers fan contest. The top prize winner is Tina Kunst of Panama City Beach, Florida who wrote about her "Steeler-themed" wedding last May. Kunst wore a full Steeler yellow wedding gown and of course a Steeler garter. Her husband wore a tuxedo with a Steeler tie and the bridesmaids wore black with Steeler yellow jewelry. A giant Steeler helmet was used as the altar. The reception was held in a sports bar with 60 inch widescreen televisions showing a replay of Super Bowl XL (in which the Steelers defeated Seattle). Tina Kunst receives 2 tickets to a future Steeler game, a Steelers jersey and a Super Bowl XL game football. A VisitPittsburgh spokeswoman says they received more than 300 photo submissions and stories from across the U.S. including from Virginia, Florida, New York, Texas, Maryland and California.
