The double ring ceremony was performed by candlelight with Rabbi Joshua O. Haberman officiating.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a ivory silk organza and Alencon lace gown with a Queen Anne neckline, and a pearl and crystal beaded bodice. Her veil, an heirloom of the groom's family, was of Brussels lace over silk bridal illusion and extended full length into a cathedral train. The traditional bouquet of lily of the valley, stephanotis, white roses, and ivy completed the picture.
Ann Wohlstetter, sister of the bride, and Olivia Vent of Washington, D.C. attended the bride. They wore gowns of strawberry chiffon, and carried bouquets of coral, pink, and salmon gerber daisies. Paul Sonnenschein was his brother's best man, and the ushers were Steven Kersten, Chicago, Ill., and Alan Wohlstetter, Jr., brother of the bride.
The picturesque garden of the bride's parents was the setting for the reception and dinner, which took place immediately following the wedding ceremony. Dinner was served at round tables covered with white voile cloths and decorated with white wrought iron hurricane lamps surrounded at the base by flowers.The wedding cake was centered under a gazebo trimmed in ivy, and the traditional chocolate cake for the groom was served from a tea cart.
The groom, a graduate of the Harvard Law School, is associated with the Washington law firm of Latham, Watkins & Hills. The bride, who obtained a master's from Harvard University, is presently a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University. At year's end, the couple will establish their residence in the Washington, D.C. area.
