The bride was radiantly lovely in a patron model of independence blue georgette with lace bodice, with blond shoes and gloves and a French hat of Bangkok straw in eggshell. Her white prayer book was showered in valley lilies. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. John W. Link, pastor of the bride. The wedding party left the altar to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march.
