Rev. O’Rourke officiated the double ring ceremony at 10:30 nuptial mass. The bride approached the altar with her father to the strains of Mendelssohn’s Wedding March. The altar was decorated with mixed flowers.

The bride was attired in a gown of white satin which was styled in a full skirt with a train, long pointed sleeves and a Mandarin beaded collar. Her fingertip veil, edged in lace, was attached to a white satin bonnet. Her bouquet was a spray of white roses and an orchid. Towards the end of the ceremony she laid a bouquet of white gladiolas at the Blessed Virgin Altar while the organist played and san "On This Day O Beautiful Mother."

The bride chose her sister Rosemary as maid of honor. She wore a sapphire blue satin formal styled with a bull skirt, a peplum cap sleeves, Mandarin collar and matching gauntlets.
