Medieval wedding



Dec. 22

Dear Mary & Stan –

We rented a house with maid at the above address as Santa Monica Villa could not put us up

on account of relatives and guests staying there for the wedding of their daughter.

We were invited to it on Dec. 20 with 329 guests.

The theme was medieval complete with jester, clown, pages, minstrels and troubadour.

Gardenias were floated in the swimming pool, the garden path was strewn with fresh herbs,

calla lilies and gladioli were everywhere. Our classes start on Jan. 5.

Love, Margaret & Bill

  Received your cards. Thanks.
