William and Mary Alumni house wedding: Charlie & Claire

Charlie and Claire met each other when they both attended the historic and prestigious William and Mary in the beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia. What better place to exchange vows than at the Alumni House! The bride and bridesmaids readied themselves at  the Williamsburg Manor House Bed and Breakfast. The ceremony took place out in the garden beneath beautiful boughs adorned in their finest spring greenery. Though the sky looked heavy with rain, everyone remained hopeful that the sun would make an appearance. A stringed quartet played on the lawn. The bridesmaids were in Williamsburg blue, of course! The bride, dressed in a gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown from Tiffany's Bridal in Richmond, was such a sight to behold that the sun just couldn't help but shine down right in time for the "I do's"! Crim Dell bridge is a must for any wedding at William and Mary, so the sweet couple carried on the tradition with a kiss at the top. Legend has it that if two lovers cross together and kiss at the crest, they will be together forever! It was quite a lucky day! After photos of the wedding party and the new Mr. and Mrs. amongst the lush garden setting were complete, the reception ensued. Family and friends danced to the lively music of The Lone Rangers and toasted the new couple under sparkling lights. The cake was made by Dorthy Busic, a family friend, and was as delicious as it was beautiful. It was another history-making day in Williamsburg, Virginia. Best wishes Mr and Mrs Clark!
