In vows written by the bridal couple, Judy-Sue Plumer became the bride of Paul Michael Maraschiello Jr. on July 8 at the Hotel Madison, where a reception and dinner followed. The Honorable Dyer Justice Taylor conducted the ceremony, a benediction was offered by the bride's grandfather, Henry Plumer, and the groom's brother and best man, William Maraschiello, performed a song he had composed especially for the occasion.
The bride's parents, Dr. Stephen Plumer - president of the Center for Educational Development - and Dr. Naomi Plumer - principal of the Burning Tree School in Bethesda, hosted a garden party in their Potomac, Md. home the following day for the many out-of-town guests. The entertainment was provided by the Outta Hand Band of Rockville.
The bride wore an Edwardian gown of ivory silk organza trimmed with Alencon lace. A matching period hat was tied with a ribbon and adorned with Alencon lace, tiny seed pearls and flowers with the mid-length veil caught up at the brim by a puff bow. Lee Piazza was a member of the wedding party along with Mrs. Thea Harrison Dillon, the matron of honor, Gloria Bracciano, Leanne Stone, Wendy Sachs, and Linda Ann Clay.
Mr. Maraschiello is the son of Paul Michael Maraschiello of Buffalo, N.Y. and the late Jean Ferguson Maraschiello. His brother, Francis Maraschiello, was an usher accompanied by Scott David Plumer, the bride's brother, Robert Semer, and Kurt Manglos.
Mrs. Maraschiello and her husband, who met at Killington, Vt., are now residing in Vienna, Va.
