Bernard Schretber witnessed the rites and officiated at the mass. 

The bride’s gown with Chantilly lace bodice had a Queen Anne collar.  Wide lace panels extended down the front and back of the nylon tulle skirt which was trimmed with a scattering of sequined flowers.  The finger-tip veil was attached to a jeweled crown.  Suspended from the bouquet of white chrysanthemums tied with satin ribbon were streamers of narrow white ribbons, to which were fastened sprigs of stephanotis.
