Sister Lila came from Madera, and Maud's sister was there. Fred Conwell was the best man. Les recalls, "My car broke down on the way to Stockton and I had to leave in it Chinese Camp. It was a 1920 Chevrolet, and it was a great one for breaking down! My first car was a 1916 Ford that had no self-starter. When it rained you had to put on side curtains made of Isenglass, and after about one season they were gone. It had electric lights. When you ran it in low gear the lights were fine, but when you ran in high gear they would hardly show. They ran off the generator. Anyhow, we took the train from Stockton to Sacramento for our honeymoon. We had intended to drive!"
