Did you miss this wedding in the New York Times two weeks ago?

Travis Scott Wright and Marc Paul Diaz were married yesterday afternoon at Christ Episcopal Church in Cambridge, Mass. Kerry Brock, a friend of theirs, who was authorized by Massachusetts to solemnize the marriage, officiated, and the Rev. Joseph Robinson, the rector of the church, led a religious ceremony.

Mr. Diaz (above, right) and Mr. Wright met as graduate students at Harvard. Mr. Wright, who holds a master's in education from Harvard, was awarded a doctorate in education there on Thursday. Mr. Diaz, who holds a Harvard undergraduate degree cum laude, received an M.B.A. and a master's in public administration on Thursday.

Mr. Wright is 31. He is on the board of the Points of Light Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Washington that encourages volunteerism. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Tennessee.

His mother, Linda Majors of Russellville, Tenn., is a registered nurse at Wellmont Hawkins County Memorial Hospital in Rogersville, Tenn. His father, Charles D. Wright II of Springdale, Ark., is a truck driver there.

Mr. Diaz, 28, is to become an associate in September in the Washington office of McKinsey & Company, the consulting firm, where he will specialize in financial institutions. From 1999 to 2001 he was a business analyst at McKinsey's headquarters in New York.

His mother, Diane Diaz of Cooper City, Fla., is the assistant director of the JFK Library in Hialeah, Fla. His father, Jesus Diaz of Mexico City, is the director of marketing and sales at Grupo Sevilla, a hotel chain there.
