Photographer's caption reads, "Since 1974 Albertson's Wedding Chapel on Wilshire Boulevard has married over 35,000 couples. Marriage license included, there's a $259 civil ceremony with no guests, up to a $489 Catholic ceremony with mass. Edwin Wendt and Annaliza Saclolo's ceremony was conducted by chapel founder Rev. Alex Franco's son Daniel. Respectfully they were told of the seriousness of marriage and their guests were asked to look after them if problems arose. Edwin, in the Navy, is leaving in three days for Pensacola, Florida, then to Japan. He said that many of the ships heading for the Persian Gulf leave from the Navy's Japanese port."
