Twenty-five years ago, this blushing bride was swept off her feet by a dashing Smithsonian photographer. They’re still together and still part of the Smithsonian family today! From left, Photographer Eric Long, National Air and Space Museum; Richard Strauss, chief of photography at the American History Museum; the late Richard Hofmeister; Jeff Tinsley, Smithsonian Photographic Services (ret.); groom Dane Penland, photographer for NASM Archives at the Udvar-Hazy Center; and of course, Laurie Minor Penland, specialist with the Smithsonian Scientific Diving Program.
