On July 23, 1955, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Des Moines, Ia., Mrs. Delores Williams became the bride of Vernon A. Frost, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Frost.  The 8 p.m. candlelight ceremony was performed by Pastor LaVern L. Grosc.  Baskets of white gladiolas and large blue daisies decorated the church.


The bride, who is the daughter of Mrs. Mary Winters of Los Angeles, Calif., was given in marriage by David O. Milligan.  Her gown, fashioned of champagne, colored silk brocade, princess style, cocktail length, was studded with rhinestones.  She wore a hat of ice blue beaded alpaca, champagne colored gloves studded with seed pearls and ice blue sandals and carried a colonial bouquet of white carnations and pink sweetheart roses.


The groom’s only attendant was Mr. Norman Collins as best man, while Stephen Williams, David Shaw, Charles Collins and Michael Griffin ushered.  Al wore white dinner jackets and dark trousers.


Mr. Jon Spong, as organist, played Psalm 19 for the processional and Toccata by Widor as recessional.  He also accompanied the soloist, Mrs. Louis Smith, Jr., as she sang "Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee" by Gpunod, before the ceremony, and the "Nuptial Benediction," as the couple knelt at the altar.


Presiding at the reception held in the church parlors immediately following the ceremony were the bride’s twin sister, Mrs. Jack Asbury of Shenandoah, Ia.  The groom’s sister, Mrs. William Fisher, and Mrs. Norman Collins.


The groom’s mother wore a navy blue dress  with white accessories and an orchid corsage.
