She carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations, with pink rosebuds.
Miss Kris Englebretson of Loyal served as maid of honor. Miss Mary Ann Resong, sister of the groom, was the bridesmaid. They wore pink floor length dresses styled with Empire waistlines. Lace over taffeta bodice topped the crepe skirts. Their bouquets were pink rosebuds with white carnations.
