She told how she tried to persuade her father that Mama was too young to marry (14 years old) but nevertheless they married. The wedding reception was at Papit & Mamit's place in Anse La Butte. Aunt Ora said it was quite an event. She also said when they got to church, a bunch of Mama's school friends were there to attend the wedding at St. Genieve's Catholic Church, Lafayette, La. While cleaning after her death in 1989, I found the top of her wedding cake with cake still on it & 2 glasses with initial S on them. I fixed it in a dome & Yvonne has it as well as her wedding dress - Clarissa married in it." (Olive Sonnier Pitre's family history book)
