The church was deco rated with baskets of garden flowers. Prenuptial music was played by Mrs. Graham at the organ. Barry Stewart of Eau Claire sang "Because" and "I Love You Truly."

The bride was attired in a street length white bengaline dress, trimmed with pink and a white hat. She wore a corsage of pink rose buds and white baby’s breath. Her only jewelry was a gold locket worn by her grandmother fifty years ago.
