Wedding Announcement


Our daughter, Kristen Walcott and Benjamin "Beau" Justice were joined in matrimony 3:30 p.m. September 18, 2010. The sky was blue and the weather perfect for the outdoor ceremony in the gardens of the University of Virginia Colonnade Club. Vinnie did an excellent job handsomely carrying and presenting the rings for the couple. At the end of the evening the newlyweds made a romantic exit into the night running through the bubbles of well wishers. The couple enjoyed a fabulous honeymoon in London, Paris and Bruges. Welcome to our family, Beau! We are so happy for you both.
