The bride’s chapel entrained floor length gown of white peau de soie was fashioned with an A-line skirt. Her three-quarter length sleeves and train were edged with Venetian lace. A white rose headpiece was held her elbow length illusion veil. She carried a colonial bouquet of white and yellow roses with white stephanotis.

They wore pastel blue dresses styled with Empire lace tops. Their floor length sheath style skirts were enhanced with lace panels attached to low back neckline.
