A jolly
good show!

YESTERDAY saw the
union of Charles,
Prince of Wales, and Lady
Diana Spencer in what
many consider the most
spectacular wedding of the
century. In Ann Arbor, at
5:00 a.m. at the stately
English Tudor home of
John and Chrystina
Kokkales, a wedding recep-
tion perhaps less solemn
and splendid, but no less
festive, was taking place in
honor of the royal bride
and groom.
The reception was com-
plete with champagne, a
four-tier wedding cake in-
scribed "Good show Chuck

and Di," scones, croissants,
Scotch shortbread, kip-
pered herring, and tea. The
house was decorated with
British flags, posters such
as ''Congratulations
Charles and Diana," and,
of course, a wedding
bouquet.
"The English love their
queen, they love the royal
family; they could be star-
ving to death, but boy, they
love the queen," Mrs.
Kokkales said. The purpose
of the reception, she said,
was to celebrate a rare and
beautiful occasion, and to
feel part of the "great
event."

NOT ALL ANN ARBORITES who dragged themselves out of bed at five in the mor-
ning to watch yesterday's royal wedding staggered to the TV set with groggy eyes, clad
in their bathrobes. Some did it with a bit more proper style. John and Chrystina
Kokkales (feeding each other wedding cake, above right) threw a formal party to
celebrate the royal union and invited a number of University students (some of whom
appear above), and City Councilmember Earl Greene (below). The man and woman of
the hour appear on the television screen (below, inset). Doily Photos by PAUL ENGSTROM
