The ceremony was held at the First Baptist Church in Portland. A cropped version of this photograph and image No. 372A0110 were published on Page 3 of the Oregon Journal on Sunday, June 20, 1937, under the headline “—And May They Live Happily Ever After.” This photograph had the following caption: “Members of the bridal party at the White Temple Saturday night, when Miss Myrtle Cradick became the bride of Mayor Joseph K. Carson.” To the left of the bride is Myrtle Cradick's sister, maid of honor Ethel Cradick. Her other attendants were Carson’s sister, Mrs. Elwyn Van DeWalker; Kathleen Furlong; Mavis Melvin; and Ruth Morris. To the right of the groom is Joseph K. Carson’s brother, best man James Carson.
