The brideís mother wore a tan dress with black accessories. Her corsage was white carnations.

A reception was held following the ceremony at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Houck. The bridal table was centered with a three- tier wedding cake which was made and decorated by the bridesís mother. Mrs. Gordon Moody had charge of the guest book.
