The bride was presented by Carl Chapman of San Jose, Cal., a friend of the couple. She wore an aqua blue suit accented with black accessories and a white carnation corsage and carried a prayer book and rosary.

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Finch of Moffet Field, close friends. Mrs. Finch had pinned a pink carnation corsage to her aqua blue suit with which she wore brown accessories.

The wedding dinner, with covers laid for 14, was served at the Pueblo café. The table was decorated with fresh-cut flowers and fern flanking a two-tiered wedding cake topped with a miniature bridal couple.
