The Reverend L. L. Darrington, pastor of the Methodist church, read the single ring ceremony which was witnessed by the bride's mother and the groom's parents. For her wedding the bride wore a powder blue dressmaker suit with black accessories. Later this week the couple will leave for San Diego, California, where the groom expects to be stationed for a time before being sent overseas.
Both the bride and groom attended New London high school. After graduating, the bride attended the College of Commerce at Burlington where she was affiliated with the Pi Rho Zeta sorority, and has since been employed as stenographer and invoice clerk at the West Burlington shops where Mr. Belles also worked before entering the armed service 18 months ago.
