Glynnis Marie LaGarde and Aaron Ray Linderman joined in marriage during a nuptial Mass at St. James Catholic Church in Mount Rainier, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C., on Aug. 7, 2010. The Rev. Pablo Bonello, IVE, officiated at the ceremony and was celebrant of the Mass.

Glynnis is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Victor E. LaGarde of Vicksburg, and Aaron is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Linderman of Tempe, Ariz.

The bride wore a slim, ivory chiffon-over-satin gown. The chiffon bodice folds fell from a halter circlet of ivory satin embroidered with flowers edged with pearls and crystals to the empire waistband of satin with matching embroidery. The skirt of ivory chiffon panels flared to chapel length. Attached to the halter neck, she wore a chiffon Watteau chapel train complemented by a fingertip-length veil of illusion edged with embroidery sprinkled with crystals and pearls.
