First Campus Center wedding unites alumni couple

The newlywed couple with alumni friends

"From the start of our planning for the big day, we were determined to have our wedding at a unique and meaningful location," say Joy LaPointe '95 and Adam Clark '97, who were married at WPI's Campus Center on May 11, 2002. The couple, who met after college, initially considered using Higgins House for the wedding reception. "After walking through the newly constructed Campus Center, however, our decision was final. The Campus Center is truly the shining jewel of the campus, and we were thrilled to share it with our family and friends, many of whom are also WPI alumni."

One section of the Odeum was set up as a chapel, and the other two were decorated for the reception. To further the WPI feeling, guests were seated at tables named after significant campus buildings, with cards describing the buildings' histories and the couple's ties to each location. "The staff went out of its way to make the first Campus Center wedding perfect," the couple says, "and we are grateful for all their hard work. It was truly the best day of our lives, and we are so proud to have been the first couple married there."
