#VicarriedAway

Welcome to Alexia Joslin and Nick Vicari’s wedding website! We are so excited to get married in the bride’s hometown of San Clemente, CA on November 9, 2019. We look forward to celebrating with you!

The groom grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and moved into the City after graduating from Business School. The bride moved to Philadelphia from Southern California to attend grad school and has since started her career on the East Coast.

The bride and groom first met at a CrossFit gym in Philadelphia, where she beat him in a plank contest. After not seeing each other for about five months, they finally crossed paths again. The groom reintroduced himself and they hit it off! After the groom’s Olympic weightlifting meet in the Spring of 2017, he asked for her number to which she affectionately said, “No, just Facebook Message me." Even though this was not the response he wanted, the groom was not discouraged. He Facebook Messaged her later that day and invited himself to a scavenger hunt pub crawl she was at with her friends.

The next week, they went on their first date, where they grabbed some tacos and margaritas at Mission Taqueria, followed by a few rounds of bowling. Many more dates and adventures followed, including brunches and dinners at Parc, concerts throughout the city, CrossFit workouts, beach days, hiking, travelling, Eagles games, and exploring Philadelphia together. After a year of adventures, the groom proposed while canoeing in Bucks County with First Mate Whistler. Both cannot wait for a future full of adventures together!

Wedding Party

Dog of Honor-Whistler

Whistler

Whistler was named after Alexia's favorite place to ski. He loves to go on outdoor adventures and walks throughout the city. Bacon is life. Nick and Alexia couldn't picture their big day without Whistler there.

Maid of Honor- Liz Hurder

Maid of Honor

Liz and Alexia met in undergrad. Their mutual sense of humor is the glue that holds their yin and yang personalities together. Master of memes and connoisseur of #basictrends, Liz has been by Alexia’s side ever since a ‘jinx’ moment over a dinosaur discussion at a sorority event. Living together in college at the Newport House and adventure treks around the US has solidified their sister-like bond. From helping edit Alexia’s papers to mailing perfectly practical gifts to Philadelphia, Alexia is thrilled to get married with Liz by her side.

Bridesmaid-Kelley Breen

Bridesmaid

Team Kalex began 18 years ago when Kelley and Alexia were on the same youth league soccer team in San Clemente. They had no idea they would also spend their high school years on the same teams and in the same friends circle. Often together while running to the beach, eating Pedro’s tacos, and driving around before their permits were up, their summers were spent at the ‘hole’ and would usually be spotted near Tower 5. Evenings were spent in the Nieblas kitchen making fun of Rochelle. A trip to visit Kelley during college would have been incomplete without a tri-tip sandwich from Firestone and visiting her Grandparents’ vineyard. Guests will thank Alexia when Kelley Breen hits the dance floor at the reception.

Bridesmaid-Rochelle Nieblas Davis

Bridesmaid

It’s a Nieblas. Alexia and Rochelle lived on the same block in San Clemente for 25 years. Alexia has survived Rochelle’s haphazard driving and cooking. Over the years, their relationship really hasn’t changed. They still enjoy shopping for bubble wrap, hiking, eating cupcakes, and dogs. In high school they were often running together or driving by Ole’s Tavern. These days, Alexia and Rochelle have a friendship commute between Philadelphia and North Carolina. When visiting each other they like to people watch at Walmart and plan elaborate backpacking trips. Both Rochelle and Alexia cannot wait to move back to the West Coast and live nextdoor to each other. At the wedding Rochelle will most likely be found next to the cake.

Bridesmaid-Kelsey Downey

Bridesmaid

Alexia’s college experience would have been empty without her shenanigans partner Kelsey. Kelsey and Alexia immediately bonded over their ability to mask their nerdiness with Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Trips to Vegas and football watching weekends spent in Newport is where they loved to be. Although their dates to Great Mex for Carne Asada Nachos are less frequent, Alexia can hear Kelsey’s laugh 2,780 miles away. With Kelsey, the party is never cancelled. Kelsey will be chasing nargles on the venue property.

Bridesmaid-Erica Hersh

Bridesmaid

Erica and Alexia first met during college when they were camp counselors together. Seemingly unfit to be in charge of others' lives, they actually turned out to be fantastic co-parents to the various teenagers they mentored throughout the school years. They immediately bonded over carbo-loaded weekends and enjoyed forming small cults named with greek letters. Over the years, Alexia can always count on Erica to provide fashion and public relations consult. Erica will personally escort all guests to the bar if they are not dancing.

Bridesmaid-Olga Vertsinsky

Bridesmaid

Olga and Alexia were college roommates and sorority sisters. They immediately bonded over their affinity for drinking the finest champagne and wandering the streets of Newport. Alexia could always rely on Olga to be her make-up artist, outfit critic and voice of reason. They share a love for tomfoolery, sledding in the Alps, and unicorns named Cornelius. They enjoy judging other people's life decisions and outfits whilst sitting at home in their sweatpants. Alexia can think of nobody else more reliable and able to handle a crisis than her Russian partner in crime. Olga will be ironically teaching everyone how to dance the hora at the reception.

Bridesmaid-Gabrielle Vicari

Bridesmaid

Gabrielle is Nick’s older sister. Alexia immediately knew that her and Gabrielle would get along due to her witty sense of humor and ability to jar her own pickles. Gabrielle is going to make the best dog aunt to Whistler and affectionately refers to him as ‘Mr. Man.’ Gabrielle is the go-to person to ask about the architectural history of our venue.

Bridesmaid-Genevieve Vicari

Bridesmaid

Genevieve is Nick’s younger sister. Alexia and Genevieve both aspire to be like Miranda Priestly. Genevieve will require a special plate at the wedding as she only eats the finest Pastina pasta. For wedding day attire assistance please consult with Genevieve.

Best Man-Jonathan Vicari

Best Man

Nick and Jonathan are brothers and Nick is the older of the two even though the majority of people don’t think he is. They share many of the same interests, including sports, crossfit/OLY, cooking and food, business/stocks, and any episodes of the Office. Bottom line, there is nobody else he would choose to be his best man. Fun Fact, the also both work in the same building, one on the 45th and one on the 42nd.

Groomsman-Steven "Newns"

Groomsman

Newns has been one of Nick’s best friends since 6th grade even though Nick annoys him to no end. They went to the the same grade school, high school, and lived together all 4 years of college . Whether its grabbing beers at Black Sheep, Nick using Newns last name in songs, or their love of dogs (as Newns’ is Whistler’s favorite Uncle), they are the best of friends.

Groomsman-Joe McFadden

Groomsman

Joe and Nick became best friends in high school. From playing basketball in the driveway, to Call of Duty zombies online, to the McFadden family party and playing hide and seek with his dog (RIP Marley).Today, both of them live in Philadelphia and do the same things. Although they aren’t gym bros anymore, both are always up for a fun night out and visiting different places throughout the city.

Groomsmann-Jimmy Mann

Groomsman

Jimmy and Nick became friends in their 4 time back to back basketball league champion team at the local Central Bucks YMCA . They would always celebrate with Carlsberg and Crispy Chicken Millers. If they are together, you can also count on the fact that they will reminisce about the time when they went Boar hunting in Florida. When they aren't hunting invasive Boars they are known to hangout in the city together or tag team on COD. Jimmy is guaranteed to be the life of the party at the wedding and don’t forget to ask about his experience on the Price is Right.

Groomsman-Andrew Timmons

Groomsman

Andrew and Nick have known each other since grade school. In high school, they were always watching movies, talking about the Flyers in homeroom, and hanging out with all of the guys from Wood at the Chipotle down the street. Currently, he is working and living in KC, but anytime he is home, they still go to the Chipotle. Nick cannot wait to pursue his scuba adventures with Timmons.

Groomsman-David Joslin

Groomsman

David is Alexia's older brother. Despite Alexia living far away in Philadelphia Nick always enjoys hanging out with David when they are in California. Nick and David can talk about hockey and cars all day. They also enjoy making fun of Alexia on a regular basis and sharing memes.

Travel

Fly

Wish you could teleport to the beach? Us, too. Here's the next best option:
The closest airport to all of our weekend festivities is John Wayne International (SNA). We recommend flying into SNA and taking an Uber or renting a car to your accommodation.
Events are located throughout South Orange County where driving or taking an Uber is easiest.

Flights into LA (LAX) or San Diego (SAN) are often more economical but are further away from Orange County.
