On June 21, 2013, the summer solstice, friends and family celebrated the marriage of Julia Staley formerly of Modesto to CPO Joel Simmons of Denver, CO. Joining the happy couple at the Chalone Winery in the Pinnacles were guests from England, Australia, Colorado, Washington, Illinois, and across California. Recent transplants from Hawaii, the new Simmons family is residing in Pacific Grove. Joel is assigned to the Defense Language Institute and Julia is employed by Denise Duffy and Associates . We wish them much happiness, good health, and love.
