The bride was given in marriage by her father in an organza semi-sheath gown with white satin ribbon backing Venice lace, with panels running through the front of the bodice and skirt. The lace also styled the high neckline, and cuffs of the three quarter Camelot sleeves and center of the detachable chapel train. A cluster of organza flowers held her cathedral headpiece.

They wore skirts of an A-line styling in brown, orange, gold and moss green chiffon. The bodice of the gowns were of beige Venice accenting the high ruffled neckline with a ruffle extending down the front and centered with matching satin buttons. The long bishop sleeves had ruffles bordering the cuffs. A wide satin colored belt and bow accented the empire waist. They wore matching colored satin bow headpieces. They each carried a bouquet of all colored pompons.
