Mary Ellen and Jonesy's Wedding Album

The wedding of Mary Ellen Walton to Arlington Wescott Jones 3rd came about after her first marriage to Curtis Willard ended.  She had been notified that Curt had been killed in the Pearl Harbour attack only to find some time later that he was alive, but quite a different man. Curt asked for a divorce.

So Mary Ellen's second marriage took place in the second of the 1982 movie specials, Mother's Day on Waltons Mountain. Jonesy had been introduced to us during season 9 and the romance blossomed and finally the young couple became husband and wife. Jonesy got along very well with Mary Ellen's young son, John Curtis, and called him Johnny.

The happy couple celebrated their wedding reception at the home of Mary Ellen's family, the Walton home. Here Jonesy is toasting their future together, and thanking a fairly shady car salesman who sold him a bomb which broke down and led him to meet Mary Ellen.

Guests Ike and Aimee Godsey are discussing her art abilities with the Reverend and his wife. Aimee comments that she doesn't "do religious art". We later find that she prefers the little clothed body of Elizabeth's boyfriend, Drew.

The new bride, Mary Ellen Walton, chats with Corabeth Godsey at the reception. I believe that Corabeth is asking about the honeymoon plans for after the nuptials and that she shows some disdain when Mary Ellen happily informs her that the happy couple are going camping.
