DeVries and Holwerda Wedding


The wedding photograph depicts the bride and groom, Fenna Holwerda and John DeVries (seated); Sidney Holwerda, best man, and Betty DeVries, maid of honor, standing; Carole Holwerda Stekenberg, flower girl, stands at the right. The bride wears a satin dress with a mantilla veil that is fanned out on the floor in the foreground. Betty DeVries wears a dress with gussets at the hemline, a stand-up ruffled neckline, and full ruffled caps at the shoulder. The sleeve of the flower girl's dress somewhat echoes that of the maid of honor. The gentlemen wear suits and ties.
