Joan Nagel, a granddaughter, was in charge of the guest book.

The guest of honor table had two centerpieces of yellow roses and white carnations. Each small table was centered with a gold rose.

Yellow roses, white carnations and baby’s breath were in the corsage and boutonniere the couple wore for the occasion.
