Albarus declined to provide any specifics about the ceremony or the bride, the Post reported.
“She’s an absolutely wonderful individual,” Albarus told the newspaper She said the bride and groom “were allowed to hold hands,” but did not say if they were allowed to kiss or have any further contact.
"I believe the institution was very accommodating," Albarus told the Post.
Officials with the Virginia Department of Corrections would not confirm whether a ceremony took place. One inmate, who told the Post he witnessed the ceremony in Red Onion's contact visit area, said it occurred Friday during a two-hour visit by the bride.
Craig S. Cooley, who was one of four attorneys to represent Malvo and is currently handling his appeals, said he met the bride, whom he described as close in age to his client. He said she was "a very impressive young lady. Educated. Her eyes are wide open," the Post reported.
Cooley said the woman began writing to Malvo two years ago and then began visiting him.
"I believe they are soul mates," Cooley told the Post. "She sees the good and sees Lee as I've always seen him, and I think the world would have seen him had Muhammad not taken over his life."
According to the AP, there are strict rules in place for inmate weddings in Virginia state prisons. Witnesses and guests are limited to six, and drinks must be obtained from prison vending machines. In addition, a wedding "shall not result in the granting of any special privileges for the consummation of the marriage following the ceremony or thereafter."
