In these times of war and stress when every household is affected in some way by changes, young folk planning to be married often have to change their arrangements at the last minute.
Just so with Miss Caddie Condon, lovely daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.F. Condon of 3724 Berry Drive, whose wedding to Ensign Alton Murray Barlow, was to have been a church ceremony here this month. But due to Navy regulations and changes, the bride-elect is leaving Friday accompanied by her mother, flying to New York to be married.
The ceremony is to be solemnized Sunday, May 9, in the chapel at the Marine Academy at King’s Point, Long Island. The bride’s uncle, M.D. Rorick, of Washington, D.C., who is with the Naval Intelligence Department, is to give the bride in marriage. Her cousin, LaNea Rorick, of Quaker Hills, Conn., is the maid of honor.
The bride will wear an exquisite gown of cream satin made with a fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline, and a full skirt with a long train. The sleeves are long and come to a point over her hands. Her fingertip veil of cream color French illusion, will be held in place by a headdress of tulle and seed pearls. She will carry a white satin Bible on which will lay a white orchid. The Episcopal service will be read.
The happy young couple are to live at Great Neck, Long Island, for the next few months. The bride and her husband attended school in North Hollywood and have a wide circle of friends in the Valley.
