Real SoMd Wedding: UMD Lovebirds Tie the Knot

Kristin and Sam went back to where it all began for their May 31, 2014, wedding: The University of Maryland campus in College Park. They met there freshman year and dated throughout their time in college.

So it was natural that they married in the Memorial Chapel on campus and gathered at the McKeldin Mall afterward for a balloon release. They drove around campus in a classic 1968 Chevelle convertible, stopping at iconic locations like the traffic circle to say hello to mascot Testudo. (Rubbing his nose, it is said, brings good luck.)

Then, they celebrated with their guests at the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Kristin – with the help of some of the guests – surprised Sam with a serenade during the reception.
