The Harbottle home was artisitcally decorated by Miss Bernice Kahanamoku, a friend and next door neighbor of the bride, who used carnations, sweet peas, maidenhair ferns and forget-me-nots, with an altar of greenery surmounted by a white dove, before which the couple stood.

The bride had as her bridesmaid Miss Nina Harbottle, her sister, while the bridegroom was attended by Kenneth Auld as best man. The bride wore white georgette crepe, while her bridesmaid was attired in pink georgette. The bridegroom and his man wore the conventional black.

The wedding march was played by Mrs. Floyd Perkins and after the ceremony, refreshments were served in the Japanese tea house near the Harbottle residence, and dancing was enjoyed, music being furnished by the McCabe orchestra.
