The Rev. Sprengler read the nuptial ceremony as the bride was given in marriage by her father.


For the occasion the bride chose a gown fashioned with lace over white satin having a net yoke, pointed lace inserts into a full net skirt and long pointed sleeves.  She carried a fan shaped bouquet of white roses.


Maid of honor was Sharon Pope, sister of the bride,a nd bridesmaid, Janice Blazer, niece of the groom.  Their gowns were lace over satin bodice with full net skirt with lace bolero and peplum.  Miss Pope’s gown was of French blue while that of Miss Blazer’s was a salmon shade.  They carried fan shaped bouquets of roses, mums and carnations.  Little Carole Blazer, niece of the groom, was flower girl and wore a dress similar in design to that of the bride.
