Preceding the bride to the altar were her five attendants, gowned in white and carrying flowers of contrasting red.  Mrs. Thor Repsholdt was her sisters matron of honor.  Miss Frances Petersen was her sister’s maid of honor,a nd Miss Jacqueline Bettin, the bride’s niece, was bridesmaid.  The dresses were on princess lines, with sweetheart necklines, shirred sleeves and full skirts.  They carried colonial bouquets of red carnations and white sweet peas.


Little Shelby Jean smith, sister of the bridegroom, and Virginia Miller, niece of the bride, were flower girls.  They were dressed in identical long white taffeta gowns, fashioned with short puffed sleeves, shirred necklines and tiered skirts.  Their flowers were small bouquets, duplicates of those of the older attendants.


Walking with her father, the bride wore a heavy ivory satin and rosepoint lace gown of empress style.  Her fingertip veil was held with a coronet of ivory satin and orange blossoms.  Her flowers were a cascade of white roses and sweet peas.
