When she left for vacation in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Lindsey had no idea she would meet the love of her life. Nico and his family, originally from Milan, were living in Spain at the time, so fate definitely played a hand in getting this couple together.
When Nico decided it was time to propose, he did so at home on a rainy Sunday.
Lindsey, the daughter of Stephen Zahn of Glenview and a graduate of Glenbrook South High School, and Nico, the son of Stefania Paganoni and Marco Fatai of Milan, Italy, exchanged vows during a beautiful ceremony on July 11, 2014 at the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront Hotel.
Lindsey’s treasured moment of the day happened immediately after the couple walked down the aisle as husband and wife. They shared a special moment that they both will remember forever.
In honor of Nico and his family’s Italian heritage, the couple also chose to honor an Italian wedding tradition called “Bomboniere.” Each guest received five almonds symbolizing health, wealth, happiness, fertility and wishes for the couple’s long life together.
