WEDDING PARTY - Beautifully appointed was the wedding of Miss Doris Dillingham and Frederick Aubuchon last week. The wedding party pictured above included, left to right, Miss Jeanne Aubuchon, sister

Couple Married In Impressive Church Service

In an impressive church ceremony Thursday evening at 8 o'clock in the Little Chapel of the Dawn in Santa Monica, Miss Doris Dillingham became the bride of Fred Aubuchon. Rev. George Orloff, pastor of the Emmanuel Congregational Church read the service in the presence of more than one hundred guests.

During the service, Glen Pearson sang "I Love You Truly".

The bride was lovely in a gown of white marquisette, fashioned with a fitted bodice of taffeta. Her waist-length veil was arranged with a cap effect, and topped with natural flowers.

She carried a shower bouquet of white roses and gardenias.

Her sister, Miss Dorothy Dillingham, was maid of honor, gowned in pink marquisette with touches of blue. She wore a net hat to match, and carried talisman roses.

Robert Stevens served as best man, and ushers were Richard Salisbury and Sam Joseph.

After the service, a reception was held in the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. H.C. Dillingham,
3345 Mentone Ave.

The couple left on a wedding trip to Oregon, but stopped near San Francisco on Saturday to attend the graduation exercises at the girl's school where Mr. Aubuchon's sister, Miss Jeanne Aubuchon, was graduated. Miss Aubuchon served as bridesmaid at the wedding, and returned to school for the commencement exercises.

Upon their return, the newlyweds will reside in West Los Angeles where they purchased a new home on Stoner Ave. Mr. Aubuchon is employed with Douglas Aircraft, where his bride is also a secretary in the executive offices.

(father, hunting partner & pedigreed bird dog from the pound, grandmother, me, grandfather)
Grampa and Grandpa were visiting from 6308 Mary Ellen Ave, Van Nuys, CA 91401.

Regarding Fritz, I remember one day when we were behind the house.
Fritzy was sleeping soundly under the silver maple (photo above).
Suddenly, from a sound sleep, his head shot to attention, nose held high, sniff, sniff, sniff .
He got right up, trotting straight into the wind,
toward the plum tree, along side the north strawberry patch.
A few seconds later, CAA - CAA - CAA - CAA - CAA - off went the pheasant.
Then he trotted back, and laid back down, to return to his sleeping duties.
The grouse and pheasants didn't stand a chance of escaping detection.
Some dogs are whacko for birds.
I guess that's why they call them "bird dogs".

Me too. There's fish? Let's go!
