Taylor, vicar of St. Katherine's Church, read the marriage service.

The bridal party came down the winding stairway, the bride on the arm of her father was met at the canopied arch by the groom and best man, Lynn T. Servaty, brother of the bride. Miss Ruth Dodmead was maid of honor, while Miss Norma Schaar was bridesmaid and little Betty Dike, clad in a dress of rose crepe, was flower girl and carried a basket of pink and white rose petals.

The bride's gown was fashioned of white satin in basked effect, with tiers of Spanish lace forming the skirt. The veil of tulle fell from a fitted cap trimmed with orange blossoms. Lilies of the valley and ivory roses composed the bride's bouquet. Miss Schaar and Miss Dodmead wore gowns of rose celanese and carried bouquets of shaded pink roses. The mother of both the bride and groom wore black satin and a corsage of lavender sweet peas.
