William McKenna, Greenwood, served his cousin as best man, while Alvin Ringquist, Spencer, brother of the bride, was groomsman. 

The bride’s traditional white satin gown was designed with a sweetheart neckline, snug bodice and gathered skirt entrain. Her lace bordered finger tip veil fell from a pretty beaded headdress and she carried a bouquet of yellow and rust roses and mums. Her father gave her away. 

Yellow taffeta fashioned the gown of the maid of honor, who carried yellow roses and white asters. The bridesmaid was in lavender taffeta and carried a bouquet of pink roses and the junior bridesmaid wore white taffeta, her gown styled like those of the other aides. She held a bouquet like the bride’s. All wore attractive sweetheart bonnets.
