In 1970 we were married in Madisonville, KY at Christ The King Catholic Church.

We had gotten engaged the summer before right after I graduated from high

school. This is the announcement in the local paper of the upcoming

wedding.

Several years ago I found the paper clippings and other items and decided

to put them in a scrapbook. It was fun reading the article below. Neither

Steve or I remembered having a rehearsal dinner, bridesmaid luncheon,

or showers.

This is Jociene, she was Mother of the Bride and had raised me from age 13

to 20, the day of the wedding.

Tracy and Suzy are helping me with my veil. Tracy became a friend when

Steve and I started dating. Such a good friend that it is her wedding dress

I am wearing. Suzy, Steve’s sister, and I met in 1964 when Steve and I

To look at this picture, you would think we had a huge wedding. We did

have a large wedding party but it was small wedding.

In 1970 my favorite flower was daisies so that is what was on the cake

and table. The reception wasn’t like they are today. We had cake, punch,

nuts and mints. We did a receiving line then visited with the guest. We

did throw the garter and bouquet outside as we were leaving.

In stead of a large bouquet I carried my mother’s bible.

 

The bible belonged to Geneva Raymer Rice
