The long embroidered sleeves tapered to a point and fastened with taffeta buttons. The bouffant skirt was complemented by two embroidered panels with the back panel forming a chapel train. Her fingertip veil was attached to a seed pearl crown centered with a tear drop crystal. The bride carried a cascade arrangement of philanpolis orchids, stephanotis and ivy.

The maid of honor, Carol Dibbell, sister of the bride, and two bridesmaids, Miss Elen Smith and Mrs. Gary Holman were seen in identical peacock blue sheaths of taffeta with detached overskirts. Accenting each gown was a flower identical in color to to those adorning their headpieces. They carried cascade bouquets of white carnations trimmed with white tulle bows.

Flower girl was Elizabeth Telford, who wore a full length peacock blue gown similar in design to the bridesmaids' attire. She carried a tiny basket of white pompons and pink roses.
