Ceremony & Reception: Private Home
Although they met in middle school, Ashley Calcagno and Nikolas Amicone waited until their 20s to switch from acquaintances to admirers after an impromptu online message. Four years later, the pair planned their wedding as an intimate family affair amid the pandemic. “Nik’s father graciously offered his beautiful home in Magnolia to host us. It was very special, because we’ll always have great memories of our wedding each time we visit,” says Ashley.
The groomsmen, which included Nikolas’ 4-year-old son, Leo.
While the setting was enough to make her swoon, the bride’s most memorable moment was when Nikolas’ 4-year-old son, Leo, greeted her with gusto, melting her into a fountain of tears. From there, the party of 40 guests enjoyed a dinner of Chilean sea bass and steak filets atop a French banquet-style table spanning 50 feet.
The couple chose to dine with a French banquet-style table, which expanded 50 feet on the upper deck of the home and overlooked the water.
