In an attempt to incorporate such traditions upheld throughout the ages, Marion and Clark have chosen to honor their ancestors, both deceased and living, in as many ways as possible.

The engagement ring Clark had designed for Marion incorporates a center stone that was her maternal greatgreatgrandmothers and has been passed down through each generation.

Marions vintage gown was worn by her grandmother, Ruth Marion Hollenberg Maury in 1950 and then her mother, Elisabeth Maury Curtner in 1978.

Marions recently restored veil was brought to Little Rock from Germany as a family heirloom in 1848 by her greatgreatgreat grandfather, Henry George Hollenberg and dates back to the Napoleonic era in Prussia. It is of fine rosepoint lace, and has been worn by the brides greatgreatgreat grandmother through each generation, including many greataunts, aunts, and cousins, all of Hollenberg descent.

The wedding ring Clark will give to Marion is the ring her maternal grandfather gave to her grandmother when they married. It retains its original engraving. The wedding band Marion will place on Clarks hand was his greatgrandfathers, his grandfathers, then his fathers.

The something old Marion will carry in the wedding is a rosepoint lace handkerchief that was carried by her paternal greatgreat grandmother, greatgrandmother, grandmother, and her mother.

Finally, Marion will be wearing as her going away dress from the reception the dress her mother wore as her rehearsal dinner dress.
