Alex and Michela met in high school as seniors, and after two years of friendship and Alex transferring from Villanova to Georgetown (jury is still out if it was for Michela), they started their decade-long relationship as sophomores in college in August 2009.
Fast forward ten years – after graduating from college, several apartments, multiple jobs, lots of travel, and starting graduate school – Alex surprised (yes, it’s true) Michela with a proposal on Georgetown’s campus in August 2019. The day continued with a surprise engagement party at the Graham Hotel in Georgetown with Alex and Michela’s closest family and friends.
Michela found her Mikaella dress with her mom in Pittsburgh at Bridal Beginning. After postponing the wedding a year due to COVID-19, her and Alex celebrated their wedding in August 2021 with their closest family and friends at Sacred Heart Church and the Omni William Penn Hotel.
