Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

The Unofficial Wedding Snapshots: Kim Williamson and JD DelGrosso. 1978.

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello All,
Today I'm posting the snapshots taken at Kim and JD DelGrosso's wedding in 1978.  I missed the event. I was working as an LDS missionary in England at the time.

Dad (Charles) leading his eldest daughter down the aisle.  Kim was, and still is, the family's flower child.  She has never lost her free spirit and love of nature.

The ceremony. The gentleman in white officiated. You'll notice the official photographer, so rest at ease. The grainy snapshots posted here are not the official wedding photos.   

The event was sealed by a kiss.  Annette and Lisa Williamson are in this photo. Grandma Mattson is on the far right in blue.

L to R: Jon, Kevin, Charles, JD, Kim, Luella, Janice, Jilane.  The kids L to R: Brandon, Forest, Annette, and Lisa.

 And finally, the last shot on the roll of film. Janice in the car. The blue tape vinyl repair above Janice's head is typical Williamson!  It was the South Dakota Hillbilly's comin to town fer the wedding.
