In the fall of 1969, two friends left Seattle for college. Jennie chose Judson Baptist College and her friend Martha chose Multnomah Bible School, just a few blocks from each other in Portland, Oregon. In the due course of time both friends met their future husbands, and planned their weddings, Jennie to John and Martha to Dan. The weddings turned out to be just three weeks apart, in the summer of 1971. Martha and Dan traveled to Portland, so Martha could be in Jennie's wedding.
Jennie & John's wedding was in the chapel on the campus of Judson. The colors were lavender and purple, and Martha was a lovely bridesmaid.
Three weeks later, Martha married Dan in Arlington, Washington and her colors were summer colors.
