The 18th-century Congregational Church of Hampton, Conn. was the setting Saturday for the marriage of Rhoda Maddalena Micocci, daughter of Mrs. Antonio A. Micocci of this city and the late Mr. Micocci, to David Risley Jackson, son of Frederick C. Jackson of Southington, Conn. and the late Mrs. Jackson. Dr. Wendell Davis of Hampton officiated. The bride was given in marriage by her brothers, Anthony Palmer Micocci of New York City and Jonathan Buttrick Micocci of Miami, Fla.
Carrying a bouquet of pink roses, stephanotis, and trailing ivy, the bride wore a tiered gown of ivory voile trimmed with Cluny lace and a full-length illusion viel edged with Alencon lace.

Also in attendance were Roberta Frechette of Sherbourne, Mass. and Susan Micocci of Miami, her two sisters-in-law, Ann Martin of Washington, Pickett Viall of Montpelier, Vt., Sun Sook Hwang of Los Angeles, and Maureen Linden of New York City. Three bridesmaids were gowned in pink and three in burgundy voile and they carried pink roses and carnations, baby's breath and ivy. The bride's niece, Sonja Elizabeth Micocci, the flower girl, wore pink organza and she carried a basket of pink carnations, baby's breath and fern and in her hair was a coronet of matching flowers.
