Her attendants wore long, frost-colored dresses in a sleeveless style and with matching jackets. They carried an arm held arrangement of ferns and white gladiolas.

Following the service, a dinner-dance reception was held at the Greenwood American Legion Hall. The couple then left for a wedding trip to the Ashland area. The couple will make their home in Ashland.
