The bride was escorted to the altar by her father. She wore a strapless gown of ivory lace over silky satin. The bodice featured a modified sweetheart neckline. The gown was elegantly beaded throughout, with an added touch of silver at the neckline and the dropped waist. The A-line skirt flowed gracefully into a chapel-length train. The bride’s veil was a single layer of ivory imported illusion trimmed with beaded appliques. Entwined in her bouquet of cream roses, and miniature orchids and calla lilies was the wedding band of the groom’s recently deceased 101 year old great-grandmother, Mrs. Itney Saunier, and the gold scapular medal that was worn by the bride’s late grandfather, Wilton Vincent.
