Shown above are the former Candace Catherine Caldwell and her husband, David Albert Layton Hopkins after exchanging marriage vows in the formal boxwood garden at the home of her parents, COL. (USAF ret.) and Mrs. James O. Caldwell of Alexandria, Va.
Strains of the concert harp were heard as the bride was escorted to the alter by her father. The Rev. William Caldwell of Jacksonville, Fla., the bride's cousin, and the Rev. John McKenry Jr., of the Washington Street United Methodist Church, performed the double ring ceremony on June 14th. Dance music, during the reception that followed, was provided by members of the U.S. Air Force Band.
The bride wore a wedding dress of scalloped lace with a pale blue velvet ribbon at the waist and her cathedral length veil was a sheer net edged with matching lace. And antique lace fan and a bouquet of gardenias completed the lovely picture. Sallie Douglas, the groom's cousin, as maid of honor and the bridesmaids, Mrs. Suzanne Bristow and Mrs. Mary Landrieu, the bride's cousins, were gowned in bright sky blue qiana and they also carried flower-covered lace fans.
The groom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel B. Hopkins of Orlando, Fla., was served by his father as best man and his brothers, Samuel and Jeffrey Hopkins accompanied by Bob Finley, were groomsmen.
The couple will reside in Northbrook, Ill., after a honeymoon in western New York and Canada.
