Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Sept. 8, 1969
Unique Wedding On The Beach
The enduring importance of love, togetherness and truth was emphasized by Universal Life Minister Dave Allen at the wedding of Gerilyn Gamble of Detroit, Mich., and Bob Crispin of Pacific Grove. As solemn as it was unconventional, the unique, completely unrehearsed ceremony was held at ssunrise at Asilomar Beach on Saturday, Aug. 23. “Love is something which is bound only by the imagination and is completely free and expressive,” said Bob, to which the bride replied ”We were, we are, we will be eternally together.” The minister’s “blessing” was bestowed together with a single red rose to each. The couple ten ran down the dunes to the ocean, dipping up a symbolic vase of sea water to be passed from hand to hand among the guests, who repeated, each in turn, “In peace and love, we are.” Continuing the untraditional, the newlyweds and their friends dispelled the chill of dawn with piping hot coffee and doughnuts and the couple spent their honeymoon holiday photographing the Trans-Amerian sedan races at Laguna Seca. Gerilyn came to Pacific Grove by way of Seattle, having met Bob there while he was erving in the Navy. With her sister, Kathleen, she had traveled in a VW camper from Detroit, where she graduated from Wayne State University. Following a try at living in San Francisco, Geri returned to teach school here for a brief time. Her mother, Mrs. Rose Gamble, visited here last spring and plans to travel from Detroit for a family reunion at Thanksgiving. The bride’s father is William Gamble, also of the Michigan city. Bob is the son of Mrs. Clair Crispin of Pacific Grove and Silverio Crispin of Modesto. He ahs one sister, Janet, who also lives in Pacific Grove. A professional photographer, he graduated from Pacific Grove High and attended Monterey Peninsula College. (PGHS) 1963 bob
