Mallozzi-Zarges Wedding, Part 1: The Beautiful Bride

In Stamford, Connecticut, on a warm July day in 1947, Delia Mallozzi and William Zarges got married. Here are some of the photos from their wedding album. 

Although our children were never to know Bill's* mother, Delia (their grandmother), I am sure that they will appreciate this glimpse into the beginning of a marriage that made such a difference to all of us who followed. 

The home of Delia's parents remained in the family and will look very familiar to our kids. Much of the furniture, and even the arrangement of the rooms, remained the same until the recent death of Delia's sister, Mary Mallozzi.

* The names get a little confusing. Delia and Bill (Sr.) were the parents of my husband, Bill (Jr.). One of Bill Jr.'s children is named Delia, for her grandmother.
