The ring bearer, Ernest Koltis, nephew of the bride, wore a navy blue suit and white bow tie. He carried a pillow of white satin, trimmed with white lace and streamers.

The bride carried a bouquet of white carnations and calla lilies to the altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary while the St. Hedwig’s Choir sang, "On This Day Oh Beautiful Mother."
