On June 7, 2014, Michael and Amanda were married at St. Peter Catholic Church. It could not have been a more perfect day for a wedding until, as the processional music was playing, the best man realized that he had forgotten the wedding rings at the groom’s house. Quickly, Amanda’s mother gave her her wedding band, and her brother gave her her deceased grandfather’s ring. Following the wedding, the rings were quickly retrieved, exchanged and blessed.
The reception was held at Brookside Country Club with music provided by the Kevin DiSimone Quartet. Michael is a second-year resident in emergency medicine at Akron General Medical Center, and Amanda is a second-year resident in psychiatry at Akron General Medical Center and Summa Health System. The couple resides in Canton with their rescued greyhound, Smart.
