(From her wedding account)
"The bride, who is a charming brunette, walked slowly up the aisle leaning on the arm of her father, who gave her away. She was most tastefully gowned in a white accordion pleated crepe de chine over white taffeta. The bodice was appliqued with lace. She carried an enormous bridal bouquet of lillies of the valley and her veil was caught up with orange blossoms which were worn by her mother at the latter's wedding.
The maid of honor, Miss Grace Tryon Maltby, a sister, of the bride, looked stunning in a gown of white svele crepe trimmed with blue panne, the bodice of the gown being covered with an exquisite lace bolero. In her hair she wore a wreath of pink roses tied with a black velvet bow, as did all of the bridesmaids."
The bridesmaids were Miss Maude Townshend Maltby, Miss Dorothy Lord Maltby, Miss Eleanor Pierson Alling and Miss Helen Davenport Benedict, cousins of the bride, gowned alike in blue crepe de chine over taffeta, and carrying pink roses.
The best man was William Sayre Woodhull, classmate of the bride- groom, and member of the Yale track team while in college."
