Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim, a pairs team on and off the ice, married in an intimate setting on June 26 at The Lodge at Flying Horse in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Scimeca chose a princess-style gown with a beaded bodice and layers of chiffon for her special day. A dainty tiara, given to her by her mother, completed her elegant ensemble.
Their skating coach, Dalilah Sappenfield, officiated at the wedding. “There is no one who has had a bigger impact on Chris and I than Dalilah. She not only brought us together but she has kept us together through the hard times,” Scimeca said.
Following the ceremony the couple and their 135 guests dined on chicken and salmon. The three-tiered wedding cake, a mix of lemon-raspberry and chocolate, was topped with tiny replicas of Scimeca, Knierim and their pets.
For their first dance, the newlyweds chose “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers.
Skaters in attendance included Adam Rippon, Ashley Wagner, Ryan Bradley, Max Aaron, Madison Chock and Evan Bates.
