The altar was decorated with delphiniums and fox-gloves in tall baskets. The pews were marked with colonial bouquets and white ribbon.

Miss Betty Jean Isenberger presided at the organ and accompanied Warden Isenberger who sang, "Because" and " I Love You Truly." "Meditation" was softly played during the ceremony by Rev. George E. Griffiths of Iron River, Wis.

The bride was gowned in a floor-length shel pink chiffon and lace dress and carried a shower bouquet of Rapture roses and swansonia, and wore a headband of Rapture rosebuds. She entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin’s Bridal Chorus.

Miss Stella Jane Warden, sister of the bride, was her only attendant, and was gowned in a floor-length heavenly blue dress of chiffon and lace, and carried a round bouquet of mixed flowers.
