Congratulations to Kelly and Matt, who recently tied the knot here in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia Chapel followed by a casual, and fun-filled reception at Alumni Hall! While it rained for part of the day, the skies held up throughout the ceremony and (whew!) subsequent portraits around Grounds afterward. It was such a relaxing day all the way around, and we really enjoyed our time with this fun loving couple. We’re eager to share some of the highlights of the day with you below.

Matt was, according to reports, an accomplished Scrabble player, so the cuff links were apropos.

Kelly was stunning. LOVE this unprompted moment of serenity Anne captured before leaving from the chapel.

One minute to show time!
The priest had a sweet and funny homily.
The kids present were abundant and ultra-cute!
The first sweet moments as Mr. & Mrs!
Fantastic dinner by Harvest Moon–pepper-encrusted filet. Yum!
Kathy Watkins of Favorite Cakes sent us home with cupcakes made of the same style as Kelly & Matt’s wedding cake. Now how’s that for a sweet idea!
And yes, that’s Matt serenading his bride, who nearly swooned.
In lieu of a traditional guest book, Kelly & Matt had a wide variety of postcards from different locales, and friends and family populated the reverse side with their own thoughts for the couple. Such a cute idea!
The toasts also got a wide variety of reactions, as evidenced by kids well, being kids.
