She was presented with a corsage of tiny white sweetheart roses accented with red holly and adorned with gold and white ribbon, while her husband of fifty years was given a boutonniere of coordinating roses embellished with baby’s breath.
The couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious cake consisting of a two-tiered white confection accentuated with white sweetheart roses and gold leaves.
