The bride's gown was fashioned of heavy white duchess satin.
The skirt was short and at the sides were bouffant draperies, below which were others of tulle caught with orange blossoms. The bodice was made of Venetian lace. The court train falling from the shoulders was of satin and thbridal veil worn over the face fell to the hem of the train. An arm bouquet of bride roses was carried. It was a costume of rare beauty.
