Reality Star, Businesswomen Alicia DiMichele Marries Rob LaScala

Alicia DiMichele Marries Rob LaScala

 

What a wonderful surprise it was to be invited to Alicia DiMichele and Rob LaScala’s very intimate wedding on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at City Hall, on Dilworth Plaza. I wasn’t able to attend the reception as I had been booked a year out for a charity event, but I did see the wonderful love of friends and family during the beautiful wedding that afternoon.


I hate titling Alicia DiMichele, a star of Mob Wives: New Blood on VH1 as I know she’s much more than just the title that got her fame.  To me she’s a terrific mom, partner, friend and entrepreneur, creating her eponymous clothing store Alicia DiMichele Boutique In the past few years since the popular Mob Wife show went off the air, she’s been sharing her life on social media. She’s beloved, just read the comments her Social Media fans leave. I’m lucky, I’ve gotten to know her over the years, and she’s always been supportive in my life appearing at charity events which I support.  I couldn’t be happier for her, meeting “the last love of her life” and marrying Rob LaScala, a very successful restaurateur in the Philly area.


Many of the guests were staying across the street at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, and arrived for the wedding a few moments before start time. Above is her brother Anthony DiMichele, who is co owner/operator of Alicia’s boutique.

Also spotted in the crowd was Dorothy Toran an executive in charge of production at Sirens Media which producers the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The rumor is either Alicia is going to join the Real Housewives of New Jersey, or be a part of the forever trying to launch, Real Housewives of Philadelphia. Wait and see….

Alicia told me she fell in love with the dress when she saw the “belt” at the waist.

aliciadimicheleI want to share something special with all of you. When Rob and I were on our Easter vacation, we were starting to plan our wedding. We talked about what we both wanted, and we both agreed that we wanted it to be soon, right after summer, so September was perfect. All we really cared about was having our boys there and family and a few close friends to celebrate. We never looked at the calendar (we were laying by the pool) lol That night I prayed to help us pick a date. And the number 22 flashed in my mind as I woke up. I immediately pushed it out of my mind as September 22nd is the day my father passed away. I never even mentioned this to Rob. As the days went on I was seeing 22 everywhere. On the last day, we were again by the pool and 22 kept coming in my mind. I took out my phone and looked on the calendar. I was so curious now as to what day was the 22nd even on that month?? I can’t believe it, it was a Saturday. This was my sign🙏🏼On that day I lost the first love of my life. I whole heartedly know without a doubt that my dad sent me Rob. And now my dad made sure that on that once sad day, will turn into my best day. I will be marrying the last love of my life👰🏻 #whatagift #evenwhenwereghosts #thankyoudaddy #wedding #weddinggift


Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Robert LaScala
