The wedding dress, which was designed and made by the bride was of white slipper satin with leg o' mutton sleeves, a pointe de spirit neckline and scalloped bow hem.  The detachable train included a large cascading bow at the back.  Pearl and sequined lace, hand beaded by Margot, formed the bodice, cuffs and hem.  She carried a bouquet of gardenias and stephanotis.  The bride's attendants wore blush pink floor-length gowns made of marquisette and carried sprays of stargazer lilies and mountain ferns.
