Pink accessories and a corsage of pink camellias made attractive color contrast for the navy wool gabardine suit chosen by Miss Fanning for her wedding costume. Her aunt, Miss Virginia Lowhorn, was maid of honor, her ensemble featuring a rose beige suit with matching accessories and white carnation corsage.
Pat Sharkey served the bridegroom as best man.
For her daughter's wedding, Mrs. Fanning was attired in a navy silk print and wore a corsage of white carnations. Mrs. Doolittle was attractive in a navy pin check suit complemented by a corsage of red carnations.
About 50 guests, members of the immediate families and close friends, were present for the wedding and reception in the Doolittle home.
A salmon-pink silk damask cloth adorned the refreshment table which was centered by a three-tier cake artfully decorated with salmon-pink roses and flanked on either side by tall white tapers in crystal candelabra.
