Parents of the couple are Wilber Van Gorder, city, and Mrs. John Robinson, Stanley.  The Rev. Mattson officiated at the ceremony.


For the single ring rites, the bride wore a floor length gown of lace and nylon over satin.  The princes styled gown featured lace panels from and back.


A crown of seed pearls and sequins held her fingertip veil.  She carried red roses and white carnations.  Her father gave her in marriage.
