Mill Val­ley His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety. Pete & Jean­nette Sears Rock n Roll wedding.

1975 June 8th. Jean­nette and I got mar­ried in Mill Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia. It was quite an affair…we had a pup­pet show and magi­cian to enter­tain the kids, but the grownups decid­ed they want­ed to watch also; so we moved him and his assis­tant over to the grown up sec­tion along with the kids.

Ex Mer­ry Prankster, Jef­fer­son Air­plane, and at the time Jef­fer­son Star­ship Road Man­ag­er, Bill Laud­ner (a close friend) jug­gled with clubs. We had a string quar­tet play­ing a selec­tion of clas­si­cal pieces, and a Cham­pagne foun­tain sup­plied by Jef­fer­son Starship.
The wed­ding was catered by Mill Val­ley restau­rant own­er Hugo Tapia, a mas­ter chef from Chili. Jean­net­te’s broth­er David mar­ried us with his Uni­ver­sal Life Church license.

Apart from Grace Slick and the oth­er Jef­fer­son Star­ship band mem­bers and crew, guests includ­ed rock pro­mot­er Bill Gra­ham, Mick­ey Hart and Phil Lesh from the Grate­ful Dead. My moth­er and father flew over from Eng­land, and Jeannette’s moth­er Bon­nie flew in from Guatemala where she had been living.
Many of Jean­net­te’s oth­er rel­a­tives were also there. We had a bel­ly dancer to enter­tain the guests until Jean­nette arrived in a Rolls Royce look­ing beau­ti­ful. Jean­net­te’s broth­er Rod­ney, and her sis­ter Rita and hus­band Jeff Rubin, and close friends Nan­cy Getz and Tess Gowins also helped with the ceremony.
A spe­cial write up on the wed­ding made it to page three of the San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle news section..
