The bride, escorted to the altar by her brother, Wayland Harwick, wore a gown of embroidered and gossamer sheer tulle over bridal satin, with a re-embroidered scallop bateau neckline.  Short scalloped sleeves with matching gauntlets enhance the Basque bodice.  Her finger-tip veil of silk illusion was held in place by a beaded crown.

The groom was attended by John Kubler as bestman.  Groomsmen were La Mar Hardwick and Rodney Johnson, Danny Tesmer was ring bearer.
