As the beautiful Lohengrin's bridal chorus floated through the rooms, the Rev. Smith entered and took his place. He was followed by the ring bearer, Marleen Witt, niece of the bride, who carried the ring In a talisman rose. In turn, Jack Borchers, best man, the groom, Mrs. Jack Borchers, matron of honor, then the bride, took their places in an arch of white and blue.
