Arrangements of pink gladioli, snapdragons, carnations and white peonies banked the altar flanked on either side by tall seven branched candelabra holding white tapers.
Mrs. Arthur Edmondson, organist, rendered a prelude of bridal selections and accompanied Miss Marion Black who sang "Because" preceding the service and "The Lord's Prayer" at the close of the ceremony.
The bride wore a lovely gown of white nylon linen, beautifully appliquéd and decorated with crystal beads, fashioned princess style and cut ballerina length. Her lace-edged veil of nylon illusion was of original design. Secured by a cluster of yellow rose buds at the back of her head, it fell to her fingertips and she carried a cascade bouquet of white and yellow roses.
She chose Mrs. James Weaver to be her matron of honor. Her gown of cocoa lace was complimented by a bouquet of yellow roses tied with yellow ribbon. Matching lace mitts and a headpiece of net ruching held on either side by clusters of yellow rose buds completed her attractive costume. James Weaver attended as best man.
For her daughter's wedding, Mrs. Larson selected a beige suit, contrasted by dark accessories and a corsage of white carnations.
Immediately following the ceremony a reception for 100 guests was held in the recreation building at Lake Dalecarlia.
Both alumni of Lowell high school, Mrs. Black is a clerk at the Belt Railroad in Indiana Harbor and Pvt. Black is attending classes at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis where he is studying to be secretary to the Adjutant General.
The bride will continue to reside in her Hammond apartment where her husband will spend weekends.
