The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of frosted nylon organza with fitted bodice, square neckline, and a full-tiered skirt with crushed taffeta cummerbund which ended in a large bow in back.  She wore a fingertip veil.  Her bouquet was a cascade of pink roses and white stephanotis.
