The ceremony took place at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church on Ripley Place in the Elizabethport neighborhood of Elizabeth, New Jersey. St. Pete's (as we called it) was a Lithuanian church that Sophie's immigrant parents attended, and which the extended family would continue to attend for many decades.
Reverend Joseph Simonaitis performed the wedding ceremony. The witnesses were Sophie's youngest sister, Estelle Karvoius, and Wally's friend, Peter Moretti.
