For her wedding trip the bride wore a navy blue wool crepe suit. Her matron of honor also wore blue and carried yellow roses. The men wore oxford grey suits.

Immediately following the wedding a three-course breakfast was served at a table beautifully appointed in the bride’s colors, delft blue and white. A decorated three-tier wedding cake centered the table.
