We were married on Joan’s Birthday at St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church in Aspen Hill. Bud Tardiff was Best Man and Florence Tardiff was Matron of Honor.  The reception was held at their home.

We had made plans to have our Honeymoon in Europe, but needed passports, etc., so after the wedding we took at short wedding trip to the Shenandoah Valley.

Here are pictures of the Wedding and the Reception.

Ed Had been trying to get Joan to marry him for quite a while and in early May Joan agreed.  She gave notice and quit her job in New York,  moved to the DC area, and Carrie and Laura Tardiff doubled up so she had a room at the Tardiff house until after the Wedding.
