Joyful music filled the Trinity United Methodist Church in Mclean when Melissa Janet Sengstack, daughter of Maj. (USAF ret.) and Mrs Charles H. Sengstack of McLean, was united in marriage to Richard Thomas Robol, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry J. Robol of Chesapeake, Va., by the Rev. Alfred G. Stables on June 3. The champagne reception was held at Evans Farm Inn where the Singing Strings played their Russian repertoire.
Pamela Neill was the maid of honor, Jess Hungate, the best man, assisted by Grace Heu, Denise Kennedy, James Holland, Toshio Nishivama, Douglas Robol, Book Sengstack and Kenneth Robol. Gail Tomlinson was on flute and piccolo; Bill and Melanie Jeschke, guitar and Biblical songs; Walter, Polly and Peter Mehring with Alan Pinkerton, guitar and banjo in Southern folk hymns; Gary Meredith, piano and organ, and David Thompson in kilts with bagpipes.
The couple met on the University of Virginia debating team. The bride, a USAF Soviet analyst and then a radio programmer for the Slavic Gospel Association, is completing a master's in Russian studies at Georgetown University. Mr Robol, first in his class at U.Va. and a 1975 Fulbright scholar, recently graduated from Harvard Law School. After honeymooning in Hawaii, the couple will make their home in Norfolk where Mr Robol will be clerking for the Honorable John A. McKenzie of the U.S. District Court.
