Lesley Ashton Wells & Kevin Martin Tierney

Lesley and Kevin were introduced by a mutual friend in Boston and knew immediately that they had found love. The pair dated for six years before getting engaged on a trip to Lesley’s family home on Nantucket. Kevin proposed at Lesley’s favorite place on the island—and in the world—Steps Beach.

Father Epifanio B. Marcaida officiated the ceremony at The Church of the Resurrection in Rye, where Lesley’s parents were also married. A reception followed at Westchester Country Club, which was also home to Lesley’s grandmother, Alma Boucher, for thirty years. The reception was held under the stars and featured many surprises, including mirrored dancers, a photo booth in a vintage VW bus and an ice sculpture modeled after Lesley and Kevin’s rescue dog, Buzz.

The bride, daughter of Douglas and Barbara Wells of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich Academy, Boston College and Boston College Law School. She is a global finance and real estate attorney at Dechert LLP in Boston.

The groom, son of Martin and Linda Tierney of Boston, graduated from Reading High School and University of New Hampshire with a degree in electrical engineering. He is an account executive at the technology services management company, Kyndryl.

The Tierney’s honeymooned in Italy before returning home to Boston.
