The hotel had been beautifully decorated for the glad occasion. Golden and white flowers were artistically intertwined among evergreens, and in the center of the bay window canopy above the heads of the bridal party was suspended a large wedding bell of evergreens and California poppies.
As the last strains of Lohengrin’s Bridal Song, to which the bridal party had marched into the parlor died away, Rev. W.A. MITTMAN began to read the beautiful and impressive marriage service of the Evangelical church. In a clear voice the bride and groom replied to the vows of fidelity and love after which they were pronounced husband and wife.
The bride was handsomely attired in a beautiful gown of white hand-embroidered marquisette. Her veil of tulle was becomingly held in place by lilies of the valley. A large shower bouquet of the same dainty flowers completed her costume.
