The beautiful double ring ceremony was performed at 8 o’clock by the Rev. Allen Barrett, Methodist pastor, before an unusually attractive background of candles, spring flowers and palms. Mrs. Allen Barrett at the piano played traditional wedding music and immediately following the taking of the bows Miss Barbara Wright of Towanda sang very sweetly “The Lord’s Prayer”, accompanied by Mrs. Barrett. The bride, attractive daughter of Mrs. Lora VanHorn and the late Alfred VanHorn of Granville summit, wore a light blue suit and had light pink accessories.  She carried a white Holy Bible with white roses and gardenias, and was given in marriage by her mother, who wore a dark blue dress.  The bridegroom’s mother was attired in a dark blue print dress. The best man was Robert Gallup of Ulster, brother of the bridegroom, and the matron of honor was Mrs. Malcolm Wilkins of Granville Summit, sister of the bride, who wore a light grey suit with light blue accessories and had a corsage of pink roses.  Mr. Wilkins was usher.
