Her only attendant, Mrs. Russell Squires, sister of the groom, who was matron of honor, was in beige and wore white carnations. The bride’s mother chose a suit of royal blue for the wedding and corsage of pink carnations. The groom’s mother wore a lavender dress with blending corsage of carnations.

Russell Squires served the bridegroom as best man.
