The vows were spoken before an altar fashioned in green and white with tall branched candelabra holding lighted white tapers, Prior to the wedding, a program of nuptial music was given by Mrs. Kathleen Hopkins, pianist, and Miss Annie Mary Saunders, and Louis Uden, soloists.
The candles were lighted by Jesse Dehart, Jr.., brother of the bride and Jesse Porter.
To the strains of the bridal chorus from "Lohengrin" the bride and bridegroom entered together. The bride was becomingly attired in suit of crushed berry with matching accessories.
