December 24, 2009
The Town Crier
In a double ring ceremony this past July 11, Lindsay Meredith Blair and Michael Robert Zampini were united in marriage. The scene of the wedding was St. Francis Xavier Church in Medina, where the Rev. Mark Hollis officiated at his last wedding rite before leaving the parish. A program of violin and guitar music was presented by Mary and Charlie Kay.

The bride is the daughter of Robert and Shirley Berg of Medina and William Blair of Bedford. Bob and Peggy Zampini of Poland are the parents of the groom.

The bride wore a white floor-length, strapless organza gown with a sweetheart neckline. Antique lace with crystal beading accented the dropped waistline and rouching of the skirt, which flowed into a chapel-length train. Her elbow-length veil was held in place by a crystal and rhinestone headpiece. To accent the dress, the bride chose to wear a rhinestone choker necklace, an heirloom from the bride’s late paternal grandmother, Lynore Blair. She carried a bouquet of white calla lilies and sprays of crystals.

Erica Riblet of Cincinnati was maid of honor, and Lisa Downin of Canal Winchester, the bride’s sister, was matron of honor. Bridesmaids, who wore clove green floor-length satin gowns and carried calla lily bouquets, included Dana Faught of Washington, D.C., Katie Ross of Venice Beach, Calif., Christine Williams of Lakewood and Janel Dolan of Columbus. The bride’s niece, Haley Downin of Canal Winchester was junior bridesmaid. The flower girl and ring bearer were Kelsey and Ryan Downin of Canal Winchester, niece and nephew of the bride.

The groom chose his brother, John Zampini of Poland, to serve as best man. Groomsmen were Joseph Antonucci of Poland, Vince Antonucci of Columbus, Gaby Dibo of Greenville, S.C., James Dunn of Columbus, Brian Kirchbaum of Columbus and Patrick Thompson of Las Vegas. Frank Caparso Jr. and Daniel DiLoreto, both of Las Vegas, were ushers.

Following the wedding, guests attended a wine and cheese hour on the patio of the Blair Center of Westfield Country Club before a formal dinner reception was held in the club’s ballroom.

The bride is a 2006 graduate of Mount Union College in Alliance, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in mass media studies. She is employed as the account manager for National Healthcare Access in Las Vegas.

The groom graduated from Ohio State University, earning both a bachelor of arts in communications and a master’s degree in sports management. He is the operations and marketing manager for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open PGA Golf Tournament in Las Vegas.

The couple honeymooned on a Caribbean cruise and now reside in Summerlin, Nev.
