The bridal party stood under a beautiful arch of ferns and roses, and the house was beautifully decorated with roses, peonies and ferns. The bride wore sand colored crepe-de-chine and carried a shower bouquet of pink and white sweet peas. The bridesmaid wore white satin and carried white roses. Following the ceremony a bountiful wedding dinner was served, covers being laid for ten at the bride’s table.
