Public Information

from the donor: " graduated from Vassar College in 1973. I happily returned to the campus to be married at the Vassar College chapel on June 18, 1978.
Below are two photos from my wedding day, both taken at the Chapel.
My dress was made from silk duppioni and chiffon imported from France, and the most important fact about my dress is that my Mother made it! She is a skilled seamstress and does beautiful needlework.
The sleeves and train were all handrolled and stitched from gossamer silk chiffon.
I remember that dress and that day with great fondness. ... the magnificent architecture, the sounds of the venerable organ and a most excellent bridegroom who has continued to be a most excellent husband!

Jayne Mellenthin Rogers Class of 1973

The quality of my scans is not very good. If it is of interest to you, I could have these photos reprinted - the originals are much clearer than the photos below"
