Griswold, Peverly tie the knot

NORMAN — Sarah Kephart Griswold and Matthew Paul Peverly, both of New York City, celebrated their marriage in a garden ceremony at the Back Porch Restaurant on Ocracoke Island, N.C., on June 28. Sarah’s father, Robert Griswold, officiated at the ceremony for family and friends.

Sarah is the daughter of Ellen Wisdom and Robert Griswold, of Norman.

Parents of the groom are Patricia and Stephen Martin, of New Bern, N.C., and Charlotte and John Peverly, of Perrysville, Ind.

Sarah was accompanied down the aisle by her brother, Peter Griswold of Minneapolis, Minn., to the tune of “You Are My Sunshine,” performed on the glockenspiel by Ivan Sandomire.

The bride wore her mother’s bridal dress made in 1972 by her grandmother, the late Kathryn Soth Wisdom. The updated dress was designed and made by Julia Gingrich of Anty Shanty Vintage in Norman and final touches were completed by Melinda Robinson, of Norman. The dress featured a floor-length cotton skirt of pink, peach and lavender flowers and a contemporary strapless bodice made of ivory linen.

The bride borrowed her jewelry from her mother and carried a bouquet of white hydrangeas and white spray roses.

Matrons of honor were Shannon Smith Liew, of Chicago, and Gloria Huang, of Hoboken, N.J.

The best man was the brother of the groom, Brian Peverly, of Granby, Conn.

Flower girls were Violet Peverly, daughter of Brian Peverly and Mary Beth LaRosa, of Granby, Conn., and Cecilia Liew, daughter of Shannon Smith Liew and Andrew Liew, of Chicago.

Ring bearer was Will Peverly and ushers were Jake Peverly and Vaughan Peverly, all sons of Brian Peverly and Mary Beth LaRosa.

The bride’s mother and groom’s father provided readings.

A reception was hosted at the Back Porch Restaurant.

The bride is a 1997 graduate of Norman High School. She graduated from Stanford University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in history and from the University of Leicester, U.K., in 2004 with a Master of Arts in museum studies. She is a Ph.D. candidate in European history at New York University in New York.

The groom graduated from Dulaney High School in Timonium, Md., in 1992 and from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting in 1996. He works at Uovo Fine Art in New York.

The couple will make their home in Norman, with the bride living in Europe for her Ph.D. research during the upcoming academic year. They plan a honeymoon trip to Rome and Istanbul in December.
