Morgan and Felix met at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business. Felix had emailed Morgan to set up a networking conversation to learn about her private equity career since Felix was planning to pursue that path. Turns out finance wasn’t all they had in common—the day before their coffee, they coincidentally met when Morgan was soliciting sign-ups for the Darden Racquets Association.
Coffee became dinner and they soon became a couple. Just before Morgan’s graduation, Felix brought her to Thomas Jefferson’s historic Rotunda and asker her to be his wife. Morgan’s mother, father and brother looked on from behind the serpentine walls, snapping photos with champagne at the ready.

Betsy and Brad both grew up in Greenwich but did not meet until they moved to New York City. They were first introduced by Brad’s sister, Paige, at a Racquet & Tennis Club party and met again a year later, at the annual Frick Young Fellows Ball. After talking for most of the night and getting a tour of the Frick collection by Betsy (an art history major), Brad asked Betsy for her phone number. And so the courtship began.

Another special touch: All the invitations, menus, programs and table cards were designed with images of Betsy’s mother’s watercolor artwork. Music was everywhere throughout the wedding—local bands played, a traditional gospel choir sang and a Bahamian Junkanoo parade led guests from the reception to the after party.
