Both brides, who were escorted to the altar by their fathers, wore the traditional bridal gowns with Sabrina neckline, three quarter length sleeves and train fashioned of Chantilly lace and tulle.  The skirts of tulle and lace were caught up into points draping out into the train.  They were fingertip veils with crowns of alce and pearl sand both carried cascade bouquets of red roses.
