... And they became one: Congrats to my granddaughter
The room was crowded. All the available seats were taken. There were mothers and fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers, other family members, as well as friends and neighbors. Yes, there was a crowd filling the room, patiently and anxiously waiting for the main event for two very special people. These two people held hands as they stood with their backs to the audience but in front of the speaker who was in charge of this event. They were all at the courthouse in Rockville on Aug. 18 for this special event which was to take place at 10:15 a.m. The person who was in charge began to talk directly to Kum Samuel Buo Jr. and Brittany Hussey. And, at the right time following directions, they each said “I do” in answering the question that they were here, today, in front of all these people, to become husband and wife — that is get legally married. Then they kissed and the audience clapped loudly, expressing its joy for this marriage.
The groom’s parents are Mr. Sammy and Mrs. Zelma Bud. A reception was held after the wedding at the home of Mrs. Bud in North Potomac. There was plenty of food — a wide variety of meats, colorful vegetables and several different fruits. The wedding cake, presented by the bride’s mother, Mrs. Vernall Hussey, was white with pink ribbons and pink flower petals decorating the cake. The bride’s dress was also a beautiful pink. The groom said “Thank you to our beloved families for sharing in our special day” as he and the bride left the room.
