FORTUNATO “FRED” LIPARI
Father of the Groom
Maid of Honor
Carly is Ginas younger sister and best friend. She is a certified cosmetologist in Youngstown, OH that specializes in eye lash extensions, hair, & make up. She is by far the more "boujee" and dramatic sister so who better to have as the maid of honor? They are workout partners (when Carly actually gets up) and love bonding over music and good food. When they are together they can laugh for hours.
Phil is jokingly (but maybe not) the second matron of honor AND best man 1/3. Phil is Doms oldest brother and is married to Anna (condolences to Anna) who is also a bridesmaid. He attended YSU to play college baseball at a whopping 5’4” 130lbs and graduated with a business degree. Phils ideal saturday includes Gossip Girl and a Starbucks latte. The perfect “girl dad”. Phil and Anna now live in Columbus with their golden retriever Winston and new adorable baby, Ava!
Chris is best man 2/3 (in no particular order) and is Doms second oldest brother. He is married to Serena who is also a bridesmaid. He graduated from Miami, OH with a degree in supply chain management. You can catch Chris wearing his grinch pajamas in public all year round or busy creating a new photo crop job. Chris's athletic career can be summed up by one word: "Potential". Chris and Serena currently reside in the windy city and are expecting their first child (A GIRL!) in February.
NICHOLAS "SONNY" LIPARI
Dr. Sonny is bestman 3/3 (once again in no particular order) and he is Doms 3rd oldest brother and lifelong roommate. He has been a DEDICATED Ohio State Buckeye fan/student over the years. He attended OSU for his undergrad, medical school and is now in their residency program for Internal Medicine. Although Sonny is now a Doctor, he would probably tell you his greatest accomplisment is his mustache. Make sure to give it a compliment at the wedding!
Carlie was Ginas first best friend and is still one of her best friends to this day. They met in the first grade at Poland Union Elementary School and were inseparable ever since. They went on to play softball together over the years and their families became and still are the best of friends.
