In a custom-made gown by Donna Langman, Opera star Denyce Graves married transplant surgeon Dr. Robert Montgomery, dressed in a traditional black Scottish kilt, Saturday at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

"I wanted my wedding to be a declaration of [the] love in our hearts," says Graves.

At the reception, Graves donned both a white silk gown by Donna Langman and a Vera Wang champagne chiffon dress, while guests enjoyed the scenery of the historical Anderson House including a reflecting pool and sculptures.

"Robert and I are cut from the same fabric," says Graves. "We have the same sense of humor and our hearts speak the same language."

The couple were also married in a spiritual African wedding ceremony on Aug. 18 in the Masai Mara village in Kenya.
