Miss Pederzani is Wed to Geoffrey Draper

Miss Sheila Lee Pederzani, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carlo Pederzani of Sagamore became the bride of Geoffrey Draper, son of Mrs. Alice Draper of Harrison Avenue, Buzzards Bay and Henry Draper of Sandwich on Saturday, October 6 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Buzzards Bay.

The double ring service was solemnized by Rev. J. Samuel Stephenson, rector of St. Peter's. Two baskets of white gladioli and chrysanthemums were at the altar.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of lace and silk organza with a fitted bodice of lace featuring a sweetheart neckline and long tapered sleeves coming to a point over her hands. Her bouffant organza skirt with panels of lace fell over hoops to end in a chapel train. She wore a pearl crown which held her elbow length veil of illusion and carried white sweetheart roses with miniature carnations set In tulle.

Miss Carol Price of Kings Highway, Sagamore, maid of honor, wore turquoise organza with gold flecking in the fitted bodice and a bouffant waltz length skirt. She wore a small fitted gold headpiece with face veil, turquoise pumps and carried a hand styled arrangement of pink miniature carnations and sweetheart roses.

Best man was Gerald Draper of Buzzards Bay, brother of the bridegroom.

About 100 attended the reception and buffet dinner at the Marconi Club in Sagamore. Mrs. Pederzani, mother of the bride, received guests wearing a gold brocade sheath dress with black velvet hat and pumps and a green cymbidium orchid corsage. Mrs. Draper wore a blue and pink flowered silk afternoon dress, a small pink hat, black accessories and a pink cymbidium orchid. The Four Aces played for dancing.

The new Mrs. Draper is a 1961 graduate of Bourne High School and is employed at the Forsyth Shoe Shop in Sagamore.
