Sr. M. Albertine played the wedding march while the bridal couple and attendants entered the church proceeding into the sanctuary, where the vows of matrimony were pronounced.

St. Mary's choir, of which Miss Thiele was a member, sang the St. Francis mass accompanied by Sr. M. Albertine.

The bride's gown was fashioned with a lace yoke trimmed with seed pearls and had a shined bodice from which the full skirt fell. Her fingertip veil was held in place with a halo of seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of white carnations and swansonia.

The bridesmaid, sister of the bride, was Phyllis Thiele. She was dressed in a blue Jersey gown with shirred bodice. Her corsage was of pink carnations. The bridegroom and best man were dressed in U. S. Nava uniforms.
