The bride was attired in a gown of white satin and net train. Her three-quarter length veil, edged with lace, held by a tiara of beaded pearls. She carried a bouquet of white roses and mums. Her pearls were gifts of the groom. White carpet was laid in the aisles.

Lester Hanas, brother of the bride, accompanied the bride to the altar, as did the groom’s mother accompany the groom to the altar.
