Shown on the left is the main administration building, while the Communication Dept. is shown on the right. The gazebo is located on The Dells, a large grassy area where students come to lounge and attend outdoor events.
The wedding that never was:
Most of her fans know that Kim had planned to marry in 1998, but called it off just three weeks before the ceremony was to take place. Memories of that brave decision are preserved for her below.
This wedding announcement was sent to the families and friends of the bride and groom-to-be. The invitation was issued jointly by her mother and step-father, and by her father and his wife. The ceremony was scheduled for May 2, 1998 in Bridgewater, New Jersey.
Seen here at Kim's then home in Conshohocken, Pa. are her mother, Gerry, and step-father, Kenneth Ross. This photo was taken in the fall of 2001 when Survivor Africa was still airing on TV.
Actual photo of Kim as she was having her wedding gown fitted. Nothing in her glow of that moment gave any hint of the doubts she would soon announce.
Within days of her gown fitting, Kim confessed her doubts to her mother saying the wedding had to be cancelled. Hopeful that her doubts might be dispelled, her mother sent this notice to invited guests announcing a "postponement"
Among the items already purchased for the wedding and reception was this candy box, intended as a favor for the guests
This collection of Kim memorabilia would not be complete without the actual gown and veil she purchased for the wedding that never was. This, and the other items pictured on this page, are presently displayed in my library in Texas
