Cynthia Wilder and Giovanni de Moura of Springs and New York City were married on Sept. 3 at the Bronx Courthouse, with his brother, Lou de Moura, and their friend Marirene Heisler as witnesses.
They will celebrate their nuptials on Saturday at the Abigail Adams Smith House in New York with friends and family, including each of their five children, who are coming from as far away as Australia. This is the second marriage for both of them.
Ms. Wilder de Moura, who is known as C.Y., worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for 17 years in ancient Near East art, leaving that post in 2003. She spends a great deal of time in New Guinea, Indonesia, and Siberia studying indigenous people and cultures.
Mr. de Moura is a fine-art painter and contractor. The two met 13 years ago, while he was renovating an apartment she had just moved into.
