Miss Allma Bradshaw played the wedding march. The bride was beautifully costumed in white silk mousseline trimmed in lace. She carried white roses.

The bride and groom stood under a white wedding bell, which was suspended from an arch decorated in smilax, white and pink carnations. After the ceremony and congratulations a three-course lap supper was served.
