Nicole Giovianetti and Samuel “Sam” Laurencin (Spring 2002) were wed in a classic ceremony in the Crsytal Tea Room in the historic John Wanamaker building in Philadephia, Pennsylvania on July 4, 2014. This was a fitting bookend to their intercontinental engagement secretly planned by Sam to take place in “Villa Borghese, a gorgeous park in Rome”. The pictures of the wedding party which included Best Man Rashid Beyah (Spring 2002) and brothers from Delta Eta and Beta Nu almost “broke the internet”.
Kappa Journal editor, Kappa Songmaster and Elder Watson Diggs awardee Jonathan Hicks sang a special solo selection and led brothers, including Past Northeastern Province Polemarch Michael Brewington, in a rousing rendition of the sweetheart song for our brother’s beautiful bride.
Laurencin, a Guy Levis Grant Awardee, currently pursuing his MD/PhD at Drexel University continues to reside in Philadelphia, Pa with Nicole and their dog Teddy.
