The women modeling the 22 dresses were Maggie Ross, Jennifer Brown, Myrna Robinson, Sharon Bowen, Bev- erly Malast, Kay Mooring and Marika Holcombe. The younger ladies were Judee Aguilar, Kari Ferris, Kesia Fer- ris, Olivia Graham, Adrienna Wil- liams, Rhiyanna Timberlake, Sam- mantha Lizarraga, Portia Gresham, Cherokee Frazier, and Kirshaha Guy. Bob Braa and Gene Ross escorted the ladies. The show was followed by an old fashioned wedding reception with cake, nuts, and mints. Oldest dress was a black wedding dress from 1911.
