Reception Follows Marriage Of Daughter Of Campus Professor
Long, full sleeves in softly-draping fabrics are popular with the brides of the early summer, and they distinguished the white chiffon bridal dress worn Saturday afternoon by Marian Louise Hollister of S. State Rd. when she exchanged vows with William Randolph Dieckman, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Dieckman of Durango, Colo. The bride is a daughter of Prof. and Mrs. Richard D. T. Hollister.
Baskets of peonies and tall candelabra of wrought iron holding lighted white candles were used with palms in the chancel of the Michigan League chapel, where the service was read at 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon by Dr. Leonard A. Parr of the First Congregational church. The bridal marches were played by Mrs. Carl Smith, organist.
Dress Has Short Train
The bride’s dress had heavily embroidered bands at the wrists and a straight embroidered yoke following the bateau neckline. The long full skirt had a short train. With this she wore a fingertip veil of white tulle held by a lace bonnet with a band of lilies-of-the-valley next to the hair. In the arm bouquet of Johanna Hill roses was the going-away corsage of cymbidium orchids.
Ruth Hollister was maid of honor for her sister, wearing aquamarine chiffon with matching lace edging the sweetheart neckline and forming the inset girdle to which the long skirt was gathered. Her matching halo of pleated chiffon held a veil of shoulder length, and she carried carnations and larkspur in rose pink shades.
Similar costumes in dusty pink chiffon were worn by the bridesmaids, Mrs. Sheldon L. Drennan of Grosse Pointe Farms; Mrs. Richard H. Hollister of Stadium Blvd., sister-in-law of the bride; and Helen Dieckman, sister of the bridegroom. Their bouquets were made of larkspur in lavender and blue shades.
Dr. William Coppinger of Cleveland, O. was best man, and the ushers were the bride’s brother, Richard, and Mr. Drennan.
Mrs. Hollister chose a firmament blue lace dress with an ashes-of-roses hat and blue veil. A pink carnation and dubonnet pinks formed her corsage.

The reception was held in the Grand Rapids room of the League after the ceremony. Mrs. J. C. Fingerle of E. Stadium Blvd., Mrs. Florence Mahoney of S. State St., Mrs. C. O. Carey of Geddes Ave., and Mrs. Daniel L. Rich of E. University poured. Mrs. Rich is the mother of Mrs. Drennan, the former Ruth Rich. Hostesses assisting at the reception were Mrs. Louis M. Eich of Granger Ave. and Mrs. H. K. Burch of Brooklyn Ave.
The rehearsal dinner was given Friday night at the Corner House and was also a birthday dinner in honor of Mr. Dieckman and Mrs. Drennan.
