Couple marries on Tahoe beach
August 19, 2004
Nicole Nowak and Jon Solaro exchanged wedding vows July 17 on the beach overlooking Lake Tahoe at the Tahoe Keys. The 2 p.m. double-ring ceremony was witnessed by 85 family members and friends.
The bride is the daughter of Bruce and Patricia Nowak of Racine, Wis., and the bridegroom’s parents are David and Margie Solaro of South Lake Tahoe.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in a white Paris Belle Epoque ball gown by Cymeline. The strapless taffeta and tulle bodice had sprinklings of Swarovski crystals and seed pearls that created a pattern on the white silk Basque-waist tulle gown, and the full ball gown skirt, with a chapel-length train, was covered with white tulle and crystals. The bride’s headpiece was a waterfall veil of Swarovski crystals and French tulle and she carried a bouquet of white roses and white stephanotis secured with white satin ribbon and pearl-head pins.
Maid of honor was the bride’s sister, Lisa Nowak of Racine. She wore a cobalt ball-gown and carried white roses. Bridesmaids were the bride’s sisters, Laura Nowak, Rachel Nowak and Julia Nowak, all of Racine.
Best man was the bridegroom’s brother, Christian Solaro of Woodland, Calif., and groomsmen were the bridegroom’s brother, Darren Solaro of Livermore, Calif., the bride’s cousin, Matt Anderson of Union Grove, Wis., and Greg Dawson of Los Angeles.
Ring bearer was the bridegroom’s nephew, Hunter Solar of Livermore, and flower girl was Aedammair Perry-Lemon of South Lake Tahoe.
