Marriage vows were exchanged by Hope Marie Hoffer and Kenneth Clay Hedgecock before the altar covered with flowers at Grace Lutheran Church. The Rev. Dr. J. Victor Murtland, senior pastor, performed the three o'clock double ring ceremony uniting the daughter of Mrs. Robert L. Hoffer of Annandale, Va. and the late Mr. Hoffer, to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ivey C. Hedgecock of Kernersville, N.C. The Hedgecocks hosted the rehearsal dinner the preceding evening. The bride was given in marriage by her grandfather, Calvin Hoffer, while Georg Koehler, organist, and Dr. Walter Hunt, soloist, provided the nuptial selections. The reception and dinner was held in the Jefferson Room of the Key Bridge Marriott.
Entering the church to the strains of Purcell's "Trumpet Voluntary," the bride wore a Bianchi gown of white satin accented with English net and Alencon lace, with matching lace on the chapel train, chapel length veil and camelot cap. Gowned in yellow chiffon were the bride's sister, Kathy Hoffer as maid of honor; Jeri Keedy, Beatriz Lee and Noreen O'Keefe, as bridesmaids. Erin Keedy and Scott Snyder, niece and nephew of the bride, were flower girl and ringbearer respectively. Mr. Hedgecock served his son as best man with Steven Keedy, the bride's brother, David Short, and Theodore Thellen, ushering.
The bride is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Hoffer of Johnstown, Pa., and Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Snyder of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She is a graduate of Northern Virginia Business College and was employed by Musicast of Alexandria. Her husband, a graduate of North Carolina State University, is with the Lakevue Racquet Club of Allison Park, Pa. They spent their honeymoon at Paradise Island, the Grand Bahamas, and will be at home in Allison Park.
