The bride wore a gown of white ninon, fashioned with a fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline, and long sleeves which ended in points over the wrist. The full skirt ended in a lace edged train with inserts of Alencon lace. The finger tip veil fell from a pearl head dress. She wore a single strand of pearls and carried a shower bouquet of red roses and white carnations.
