Miss Doris Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl H.

C. D. Brady performing the ceremony. The mass of the Immaculate Virgin was sung by the choir and a solo, "Ave Maria," was sung by Mrs. Clarence Dolan. The church was decorated with bouquets of Canterbury bells, baskets of tiger lilies and streamers along the pews.

The bride was gowned in white Faille designed in princess style with long fitted sleeves and a sweetheart neckline trimmed with ruching. Her white net veil fell from a seed pearl tiara and her bouquet consisted of Talisman roses.

After the ceremony, a wedding dinner and supper were served, and, in the evening, a wedding dance was given at Wiedenhoeft’s pavilion. The home was decorated with roses, lilies, Canterbury bells and blue and white streamers.
