THE SAUNA JOURNAL SUNDAY. JANUARY 28.1996 J3 Wedding/ Country theme in keeping with groom's band FROM PAGE 12 The latter song had special meaning, because Tony dedicated it to Cathy after proposing publicly over his microphone while playing in "Brushfire" at a New Year's dance a year ago. "He said, 'Oh by the way, I happened to go to a. jewelry store the other day. Is that all right?' "Cathysaid. The pair's wedding attire also reflected the country theme in red, black and white colors. The bride wore white boots fringed in red beneath a white silk dress with white fringe and lace sleeves and flounce. "I felt odd at first about wearing a white dress since this wasn't my first wedding, but other people assured me that doesn't matter anymore," Cathy said. But she did honor an old superstition that says the groom shouldn't see the bride's gown before the wedding. Cathy originally planned to don a small country hat with a veil over the front, but opted instead to pull her hair up in the V ROCK STAR back and secure it with a red clip trimmed in white silk roses and ribbons. Black Wrangler jeans * A white tuxedo-style shirt with black V-tie, a black suede vest and black Wrangler jeans outfitted Tony. He chose not to put on a cowboy hat for the vows though. Afterward, the wedding party and guests toasted the new year with champagne, cake and hors d'oeuvres at the newlyweds' home at 304 Hart. The Smiths plan a delayed honeymoon. Cathy said she feels confident about the marriage, although she wasn't looking for a new spouse when she met Tony. In fact, she at first declined an offer to meet him. The romance came about through her job as manager of Kwik Shop, 2003 S. Ohio, "The Frito-Lay delivery man kept telling me I should meet his roommate. But I said no, I have my job and my kids. That's enough for me," Cathy said. "Then about a week later, Tony came into the store to see me, and we hit it off." Diamond shines as stone of romance By The Associated Press It's just a little chunk of carbon, crystallized. But the crystal is enduring and full of surprises, like the good marriage it symbolizes. The diamond has been prized as a betrothal symbol since at least the 15th century, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria presented his intended, Mary of Burgundy, with a ring set with a diamond. Diamonds of that period were used in their natural crystal state — looking much like two pyramids joined base-to-base — notes Antoinette Matlins in "Engagement and Wedding Rings" (Gemstone Press, $14.95 paper- back). Pyramids were identified with strength, power, and mystery, she writes. "The very shape of the natural diamond crystal may have made it all the more attractive as the choice to symbolize the power of love and marriage." But the best was to come, with later knowledge of how to cut this hardest of substances and unlock its innate brilliance and fire. Romantic as this sounds, these qualities can be scientifically defined, according to the Diamond Information Center, an industry group. The modern diamond starts from the rough crystal, which is divided, or cleaved, by the cutter, following the crystal's natural grain. Then the gem is polished and shaped into facets — plane surfaces designed to achieve the highest degree of reflection and refraction.
