My daughter's wedding

(posted on March 26th)
My daughter, Ivy Vale, was married in the most beautiful wedding ceremony in the garden at the Mount. She made her entry in a horse drawn carriage, with her father at her side with the music from "Gone With the Wind" playing. This was her dream and we were so happy to be able to have it come true at The Mount. The year was 1988, and it took a great deal of "fixing up" to be able to use the mansion and the grounds to full effect. We have wonderful memories, with thanks to Edith Wharton.
