One of tbe prettiest of the Easter weddings
took place in Epiphany Church on Wednesday
ovcuitiL', when Miss Anno Gettysburg Venzey
and Mr. Clifford S. Walton were united. Tho
chancel of the church was beautifully decorated
with smilax, palms, hydrangeas, and Easter
lilies. The ceremony took place at 8 o'clock,
the Rev. Dr. McKlm officiating. Tho bridal
procession of six ushers, four bridesmaids, and
a maid of honor advanced up the aisle to tho
strains of (he Lohengrin wedding march. Tho
maids were all in white tulle, with satin bodices
decollete and corsage bouquots of lilies of tho
valley. Miss Townsend, the maid of honor,
walked just in front of tho bride. She wore a
graceful Greek gown of pale violet, with long
streamers of ribbons from the shoulder. Tho
brldo followed on her father's arm. Her gown
was of the conventional whito satin, mndc dec
ollete and en tralne, the front of superb silvcr
cmbosscd velvet. She carried a bouquet of
lilies of tho valley. Her face and figure woro
veiled in filmv whito tulle. Tho bridal toilet
was a Paris creation, that set off to advantage
the dark beauty of the wearer. Tho groom, at
tended by his best man, Lieut. Landry, of tho
Naw, entered the chancel and met tho bride at
the "foot of the altar. Tho grouping of tho
bridal partv made a pretty tableau, and the
solemn ceremony was soon uv. xiiu uuuM
maids were Miss llarrietllutchinsou, Miss Mary
E. Smith, of 'Chardcsvllle,'' West Saulsbury,
Vt.; Mies Jeanetto Ilalford, and Miss Julia Pat
terson. The ushers wero Lieut. Reber, of Port
Myer; Mr. Ropers, Mr. Albln Vcazcy, Mr. Frank
Partridge, of Vermont; Mr. Harry Cilley, and
Mr. James Pace. These gentlemen wero class
mates and oUnricnds of tho groom. They all
wore the bride's favors, lilies of the valley, for
boutonnieres. The church was filled with in
vited "nests, those included in tho reception to
be given at Judge Edmunds's In evening toi
lets. It was a very brilliant wedding. Imme
diately after the ceremony those invited to the
reception followed tho bridal party to Senator
Edmunds's fine residence on Massachusetts ave
nue, where a handsome entertainment awaited
them. Mr. and Mrs. Walton stood in the draw-lin--room
with their bridal attendants grouped
about them. The bride's face was now uncov
ered and was wreathed in happy smiles as her
friends wished her joy and congratulated her
husband. Judge and Mrs. Vcazoy stood next,
and received warm greetings mingled with cou
cratulatlons. Mrs. Vcazcy wore a handsome
Paris gown of heliotrope crepe. Judge and
Mrs. Edmunds stood next In line. Mrs.
Edmunds wore an elegant evening
costume of silver brocade, and Miss Ed
munds white faille and lace. No pains had
been sparel by Senator and Mrs. Edmunds to
give a hearty send-off to one of Vermont's
favorite daughters. The supper-room was soon
opened and choice refreshments of salads, potted
meats, glacd fruits, ices, and confections wero
served." Punch was dispensed in the library.
After the bridal party had been served with re
freshments Mr. and Mrs. "Walton went up on
tho second flight of 6teps and divided the bride's
bouquet into fine smaller ones, one of which
she threw at each of her bridesmaids, and Miss
Jeannctte Halford caught tho one containing
the "forset-me-not ring," that Indicates with all
the prescience of fate that she will be the next
bride of that group. At 10:30 tho bride reap
peared, clothed in a quiet traveling costume.
It consisted of a dark shade of fine brown bril
liantiue combined with black velvet and a walk
ing hat to match. Nobody knows where the
couple went to spend the honeymoon, tho latest
fad beiuc to keep that important place a secret,

carriage was "To the Baltimore and Potomac
