      Chicago Daily Tribune, 28 June 1933
      "Wedding.
      In a candlelight ceremony last night in the drawing room of her parents' Evanston home, Miss Elizabeth Sackett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Sackett, became the bride of Reginald David Crocker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Clinton Crocker of Spooner, Wis.
      The young couple repeated their vows after the Rev. Hugh Elmer Brown of the First Congregational church of Evanston before an improvised altar decorated with ferns, white roses, and madonna lilies.
      The bride's gown was simply fashioned of ivory satin with a long sweeping train. Her tulle veil was bound to her golden head with a tiny wreath of orange blossoms. She wore her mother's wedding slippers and an heirloom cross of pearls that was her grandmother's. Her bouquet was madonna lilies.
      Miss Kathleen Henneberry, a sub-deb cousin of the bride from Denver, was her only attendant.
      Mr. Crocker had his brother, Walter Crocker Jr. of Eau Claire, Wis., for his best man."
