    Navarre-Plantamura Wedding
    Baskets of gladioli and garden flowers decorated the altar of the St. Mary's Chapel at Fort Riley, Kansas, to form a lovely setting for the wedding of Miss Peggy Janette Navarre, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Navarre of Rossville, Kansas, to Joseph A. Plantamura, Major, United States Army, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Plantamura of Lawrence, Mass. Chaplain John C. Brucker read the vows in a double-ring ceremony at 11 o'clock Saturday morning, May 12. Miss Marilyn Thompson, soloist, sang "Ave Maria." She was accompanied by Mrs. Raymond McDermott, organist.

    The bride escorted to the altar by her father, was lovely in a gown of white Chantilly lace over satin fashioned with a fitted bodice buttoned down the front and a high neckline. The long sleeves came to points over her hands, and the flowing skirt formed into an aisle-wide train. She wore a finger-tip veil fastened with a crown of seed pearls and carried an arm bouquet of white roses.

    Miss Joyce Marie Navarre, cousin of the bride, as maid of honor, was attired in a ballerina-length gown of white net over aqua taffeta with a matching headband.

    For her daughter's wedding, Mrs. Navarre chose a two-piece navy blue dress with navy accessories, and she wore a corsage of pink carnations.

    The groom chose his brother, Achille J. Plantamura, of Lawrence, Mass., to serve as his best man.

    Major Jerome A. McDavitt, Major Arthur L. Travis, Captain John R. Langford, Captain William L. Devitt, Captain Robert DesJardins and WOJG Richard W. Peck, all of Fort Riley, seated the guests.

    The same officers served as the guard of honor with drawn sabers forming an archway for the bridal party to leave the church.

    A reception followed the ceremony at the Fort Riley Officer's Club.

    A long table, beautifully decorated with a light blue velvet spread and centered with a three-tiered wedding cake topped with a miniature bride and groom on each side of which were lighted tapers and baskets of gladioli was a feature of the reception.

    The cake was cut by the bride and groom with a sabre, and served by those assisting at the reception: Miss Rose Plantamura, sister of the groom, Miss Barbara Rooney, Mrs. Pylils Tory, and Mrs. Williamette Thomas sister of the bride.

    The bride was graduated from the Rossville High School with the class of 1946, attended Phillips University two years at Enid, Okla., where she was affiliated with Zonta Club and Zolloes Literary Club; and attended Kansas State College one year. For the past 21 months she has been a civil service employee at Fort Riley Kansas, in the office of the assistant chief of staff.

    The groom was graduated from Lawrence High School, at Lawrence, Mass, and military academy. He served 23 months in the Pacific theatre during World War II, and with the occupational forces in Europe for 44 months.

    The couple left Saturday evening on a wedding trip to Niagara Falls and the New England States.

    For going away Mrs. Plantamura wore a light brown suit with wheat-color accessories. They will be at home to their friends at 410 South 17th Street, Manhattan, Kansas, after June 1.

    Guests from out of town attending the wedding were Rose Plantamura and Achille Plantamura, of Lawrence, Mass.; Bill McColough, Washington, D.C.; Prof. and Mrs. C.K. Thomas of Enid, Okla.; Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Navarre, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Pardee, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Campbell, Dr. and Mrs. Henry B. Miller, all of Rossville; Miss Joyce Webb, Kansas City Kansas; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Morris, of Goff, Kansas.
