A Chinese basket was hung over head, bearing huge droopiing chrysanthemums. Little white blossoms and huckleberry relieved the green everywhere and there was a delightful change in the living room to pink cosmos.

The bride wore no veil and carried a bunch of chrysanthemums. Her gown was exquisite clinging white crepe with the fashionable yoke of embroidered chiffon. The gown was scrolled and elaborate with silk applique. The bride was given away by her father and following the ceremony performed by Rev. Ernest E.
