Dorothy Williams, president of the Tiffany Plaza Condominium Association, received her Justice of the Peace certification last week after her son, Bryant Dowden, told her of his plans of getting married on his parents’ 25-year wedding anniversary, Aug. 16. The certification course took about three hours.
The beach wedding between Dowden and his new bride, Jo-Jo Dodd, lasted an hour. The wedding party and guests celebrated at the Lazy Lobster restaurant afterward.

- I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE ARTICLE ABOUT DOROTHY WILLIAMS OFFICIATING AT HER SON'S WEDDING; IS THIS NOT A TRULY UNIQUE EVENT? DOROTHY WHO IS ONE OF THE MANAGERS OF THE TIFFANY PLAZA, A VOLUNTEER AT THE VISITOR'S CENTER, AND AN INTEGRAL PART OF MANY WOMEN'S GROUPS ON LONGBOAT WAS NOT LOOKING FOR PUBLICITY BUT WAS TRULY EXCITED ABOUT OBTAINING HER NOTARY PUBLIC LICENSE IN ORDER TO MARRY HER SON AND HIS BEAUTIFUL FIANCEE; HOWEVER I FEEL THAT THIS SPECIAL OCCASSION DESERVED MORE THAN A TINY, TEENSY LITTLE ARTICLE.
ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU DOROTHY, BRYANT AND JOJO FOR MAKING THIS A WONDERFUL MEMORY FOR ALL YOUR GUESTS.
- Congratulations Bryant & Jo-Jo. Best wishes for your future married life together. What a great place to be wed.
