Janet Lynn Hammond became the bride of Kevin Eugene Linck on Saturday evening, July 28, in the candlelit sanctuary of Westmoreland Congregational Church, Westmoreland Hills, Md.; the Rev. Daniel Wright officiated at the double ring ceremony with Sondra Proctor at the organ.
Candelabrum entwined with ferns, greenery and white chrysanthemums glowed as the bride, escorted and given in marriage by her father, wore a cathedral length grown of ivory satin with a sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice and cap sleeves trimmed in Alencon lace and seed pearls. A large picture hat of matching lace and pearls held an arrangement of gardenias and the floor-length illusion veil. She carried a cascade of gardenias, stephanotis, baby's breath and magnolia leaves.
The bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Colton Hammond of Rockville, Md., hosted a reception, buffet and dance at the Sheraton Potomac Inn in Gaithersburg.
Lydia M. Lipcomb, as maid of honor, was growned in pale pink layered chiffon with a bateau neckline, fitted waist, and mid-calf handkerchief hemline. The bridesmaids: Laura Tarango, Jane Baish, Judy Podrog, Karol Moore and Sharon Bernard, had matching designs of pale lavender and deep pink and carried cascades of pink, lavender and purple asters.
Serving Mr. Linck were Lisle T. Lipscomb as best man assisted by Stephen McCormick H. Colton Hammand, brother of the bride, and her cousin, Gary Colton Keay; Robin and Gary Linck, brothers of the groom, Gene Nanetti, and Grayson Torguson.
Mrs. Linck graduated cum laude in May from Allegany Community College, Cumberland, Md., in dental hygiene and is practicing in Silver Spring, Md. She is the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Winford Kyle Keay of Boston, and of the late Mr. and Mrs. Andrew G. Hammond of Virginia.
The groom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene G. Linck of Silver Spring, graduated with a BS in technology of management from American University and is a senior sales engineer in minicomputer operations with Sperry Univac in Washington.
The couple honeymooned in Miami, Nassau, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, and now reside in Gaithersburg.
