Bride and Groom

The bride, Alice, grew up in North Bethesda graduating from Walter Johnson High School and the groom, Kevin, is from Columbia, Maryland.

The Wedding

June 8, 2013. The ceremony was held at Saint Mark Presbyterian Church, North Bethesda followed by the reception at Rock Creek Mansion, Bethesda.

How they  met

Kevin and Alice met while both competing in the sport of acrobatic gymnastics. They both competed for different teams but came together on a trip to the Acrobatic National Championships in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 2009.

First date

Kevin and I rented a boat at Fletcher’s Cove and paddled up and down the Potomac River while getting to know each other. We followed with dinner at Clyde’s in Georgetown.

The proposal

Kevin proposed in their home in Rockville. Alice loves to scrapbook and he surprised her with a page in her scrapbook that said "Will you marry me?".

Favorite detail

The cake topper which reflects the couple performing “The Star”, an acrobatic pose that they took a photo of everywhere they traveled together. It has become their signature pose!

Favorite moment of the day

Driving from the ceremony to the reception in the 1931 Model A, driven by the Father of the Groom. It was a gorgeous day and they were able to sit in the rumble seat in the back while cars honked and people shouted congratulations.
