On a beautiful Saturday in June 2001, Harvard alumni Matthew H. Hobbs AB '68, MCP '70 and Consuelo Aceves EdM '95, EdD '03 were married in the Memorial Church. 

Hobbs recalled a moment from that memorable day, “At the conclusion of our wonderful Memorial Church wedding on June 2, 2001, we were serenaded by a Mariachi Band and escorted across the Yard to the Faculty Club for our reception. It was a moment to treasure for a lifetime.”
