Please welcome Awalin Sopan and Robert Gove. This beautiful and lively couple were wed on October 20, 2013 in College Park, MD.
Sopan and Robert selected an elegant color palette which consisted of red, gold, black, and white. Sopan wore a beautifully adorned white lace sari accented with red, gold, and green. The bridesmaids wore red and gold saris. Robert and the groomsmen all wore black tuxedos. After exchanging vows in the gardens, everyone continued the celebration inside the grand Alumni Center.

The day started early as Sopan, her bridesmaids, and mother had hair and make up done.
Then on to the venue! The ladies made the final touches in the library, affectionately known as the ‘Bridal Suite” of the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center.
Sopan and Robert exchanged vows in the beautiful Moxley Gardens. This picturesque garden area sits adjacent to the Alumni Center.
Sopan’s father and youngest sister were unable to attend the ceremony. She shared special parts of the day with them via Skype.
Everyone shared in the joy of this special day with Sopan and Robert.
After the beautiful ceremony, guests were invited into the Alumni Center for Cocktails, Dinner, and Dancing.
What a perfect end to a beautiful day….
