The bride’s gown was fashioned of beautiful nylon sheer over net and taffeta and made with a fitted bodice, full skirt and a three yard train. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a seed pearl wreath. Her flowers were pink roses, regal lilies and beach and white carnations, tied with a large satin bow.
Mrs. Richard Mueller of Milwaukee, sister-in-law of the bride, as matron of honor, was gowned in a pastel orchid rayon marquisette formal, with capped sleeves and a fitted bodice and ruffled skirt. She carried a wrist bouquet of yellow carnations, with yellow ribbon ties.
