Given in marriage by her father, the bride was lovely in the gown she fashioned of peach krinkled nylon, which featured a deep round neck, short sleeves and a full double flounced skirt cut ballerina length. Her veil of white silk illusion was caught to a crown of red and white roses. She wore long white gloves of sheer nylon and carried a cascade bouquet of white roses centered with red roses. The three-strand choker necklace and broulet of iridescent pearls which she wore was a gift of the groom.
For her role as matron of honor, Mrs. Hack Riggs, sister-in-law of the bride, was attractive in a ballerina dress of silver lustre satin trimmed with black lace. She wore black lace mitts and carried a bouquet of red roses. Red roses adorned her hair.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Hawkins in Hammond, brother and sister-in-law of the groom and the couple left on an undisclosed honeymoon. For traveling the bride wore a gabardine suit of skipper blue with grey accessories and a corsage of red and white roses.
The bride is an alumnae of Lowell high school and Gallagher Business College, Kankakee, Ill. She is past secretary for the National Association of Cost Accountants and is employed in the office of Level Brothers, Hammond. The groom, a veteran of World War II, is a graduate of Roosevelt high school, East Chicago, and is an employee of the Morrison Construction Co., Hammond. After November 18th, the couple will be at home at 1211 Sibley Blvd. in Dolton, Ill.
