Jewels adorned the Sabrina neckline and her chapel train was detachable. The matching jeweled petal headpiece held her four tier veiling. The bridal bouquet consisted of red and white miniature carnations.

Their four tiered veils were attached to headpieces of triple bows. The bridesmaids each carried one long stemmed yellow rose with streamers.

A reception, supper, and dance for 150 guests followed the ceremony at the Trianon Ballroom.
