At noon, to the strains of the bridal chorus from Lohengrin, played by Miss Mary Hotchkiss, of Lawrenceville, the bridal party descended the stairway, led by little Miss Gertrude Baker, niece of the groom. She was dressed in white and carried a basket of pink roses which concealed the wedding ring. Next followed the maid of honor, Miss Marguerite Ryon, of Lawrenceville, then the bride and bridesmaids, Miss Isabelle Sheldon, of Tioga, and Miss Miriam Burley, of Westfield.
