Hein, Gale Marie (4 SEP 1971)

A lace cluster trimmed with pearls and crystals held her fingertip veil. She carried a bouquet of red and white roses, and blue mums, baby’s breath and delphiniums shaped in the form of a cross.

Her attendants wore floor length gown soft royal blue with lace bodices and cuffs on the lantern-styled sleeves. Royal blue satin bows held their mid-length veils and they carried royal blue bachelor buttons and white asters formed into a circular ball.

The dresses, veils, and bouquets were designed by the mothers, bride and bridesmaids.
