Her story: Jessica McClintock, 37, was born in Hanover, Pa. She works as an obstetrician/gynecologist at Logansport Memorial Hospital in Indiana. Her parents, Julie and George McClintock, live in Hanover, Pa.

His story: Marcus Glover, 45, was born in Buffalo, N.Y., and moved to Baltimore in 1982 at age 12. He is a medical device salesman. Marcus' mother, Delores Ricks, lives in Baltimore.


Their story: Marcus and Jessica met in graduate school at Pennsylvania State University in 2002 during a physiology class. They sat at the same table.

"I said 'Boy, she's striking. I need to study with her,'" Marcus recalled.

Their romance started at the end of the semester and they've been together ever since. The two live in Logansport, Ind.

The proposal: Marcus proposed to Jessica last fall at their alma mater during a football weekend. He planned for the proposal to happen at the same place where they began their first date — at a bench near campus.

Marcus told Jessica he wanted to head to the game earlier to avoid traffic. In fact, he wanted to get to the spot while few people were around.

"I was kind of shy about getting down on one knee in front of all those people," he said. "We got a late start and wound up doing it in front of a bunch of people."

Venue: About 10 close friends and family attended the church wedding at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, followed by dinner at Royal Sonesta Harbor Court, both in Baltimore.

Flowers and decor: The colors of the wedding were ivory, white, gold and champagne. Flowers, which were provided by Stylish Occasions by Amanda in Towson, consisted of white hydrangea, white garden roses, ivory spray roses, double white freesia, white calla lilies, white peonies and champagne roses. The wedding was designed and planned by Bird of Paradise Events.


Her dress: Jessica wore a dress by Augusta Jones from Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City.

Men's attire: Marcus wore a black shawl-collar tuxedo, white shirt, and black bow tie, all by Hugo Boss and all from Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Music: Dr. Iraida Poberezhnaya, a harpist, and Nikita Borisevich, a violinist, provided the music.

Food and dessert: Royal Sonesta catered the wedding. Passed appetizers included chilled jumbo shrimp and lobster macaroni and cheese in wonton cups. Dinner consisted of spinach salad, crab cake trio, filet mignon and roasted Maine lobster with Yukon gold potato puree, or the Chesapeake chicken topped with lump crab meat served with Ocean City "Thasher" friend potatoes and Old Bay Imperial sauce. The couple also served a three-flavor cake — red velvet, yellow and chocolate marble — by Yia Yia's Bakery.

Special touches: The couple jumped the broom after they were announced. They plan to have a wedding party next spring.
