Mark and I were married on November 24, 1978 at St. Jean’s Church in Muskegon, Michigan. We each had eight attendants and invited 600 guests to attend our wedding and reception. I think we may have been out of our minds but we didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by not inviting them. Our reception was at Carpenter’s Hall in Muskegon which had a capacity for 500 guests but we pushed it to 600 guests. It was crowded but we fit everyone in.
A few days after our wedding we loaded up our newly purchased used van and headed off to Baltimore to begin our new life.
