The bride wore a gown of white taffeta, the circular skirt descended to the floor in graceful folds. A huge sash which formed a bown and the ends of which dropped to the floor was held fast by scallops in the front that started at the waist line and became large to form large capelets over the shoulders to tie at last in a tiny knot at the back of the neck. White kid gloves that reached to her shoulders and were fastened with three pearl buttons at the wrist. Her slippers were white satin and ribbed silk. Her veil which formed a train, was fastened to the head by a band of pearls, rhinestones and net. She carried a pearl gray prayer book and bouquet of pink roses and white sweet peas.
