Baumann was the officiating clergyman, the double ring ceremony being used. The church was decorated with flowers, and blue, yellow, rose and white streamers and a wedding bell were the home decorations.

Miss Avis Haglund of St. Paul, as maid of honor, wore a yellow taffeta gown, with full skirt, puffed sleeves and a bolero jacket. The skirt was trimmed with blue ribbon. A corsage of rosebuds served as her flowers.
Miss Lorraine Buschsteiner, wearing rose taffeta, trimmed with blue ribbon, and Miss Ione Dahnert, gowned in blue taffeta, with pink ribbon trimming, were bridesmaids. Their gowns were styled like the dress worn by the maid of honor. Rosebud corsages were worn at the neck of the dresses.
