The traditional double-ring ceremony was officiated by Rev. William H. Watson. The groom’s grandfather, Rev. Solomon B. Mason Jr., participated in the ceremony as well. Nuptial music was provided by Avalon string quartet and trumpet, featuring the groom’s father as soloist. The church was filled with beautiful blush, pink, cream and champagne roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, snapdragons and dendrobium orchids. Floral pomanders, tall candle stands with French silk ribbon streamers and flower blooms hanging from the tops adorned the sanctuary.
Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride was lovely in a strapless Kenneth Pool gown of ivory Windsor satin, exquisitely trimmed with three bands of Swarovski crystals and a gorgeous cathedral-length veil. She wore stunning pearl and diamond earrings, a special gift from her father. She carried a beautifully rounded bouquet of cream and blush pink roses with crystals placed throughout the roses and stems wrapped in a cream criss-crossed ribbon with one-inch bands of crystals from her groom.
