Beaatiful Home Wedding.
A borne wedding of surpassing
loveliness occurred Wednesday eve
ning at eight o'clock at the home
of Mrs. Hattie Wise Adams when
her daughter, Miss Emily Octavia
Adams, became the wife of James
Talton Miras, Jr., the Rev. T. P.
Burgess and the Rev. A. L. Gunter
performing the ceremony.
As the guests arrived the soft
light from the numerous Japanese
lanterns that sent beams out into the
darkness seemed to welcome them,
causing a conscious glow of hospi
tality. On crossing the threshold
an exceedingly lovely scene greeted
the eye. The hall and parlors, in
fact, the entire lower floor, were
thrown en snite in order to provide
abundant room for the many ad
miring relatives and friends who
??athered to witness the nuptials of
these widely beloved young people.
The hall was decorated in white
and green, white roses being used,
and the parlor in which the cere
mony was performed was decora
ted also in white and green, white
chrysanthemums being used here.
Tulle was gracefully draped about
the electroliers. The delicate drap
ing and fastooning of asparagus
and smilax on the white walls and
cabinet mantels of the parlors and
hall made a lovely scene.
While the bridal party was as
sembling in the upper hall prepara
tory to entering the parlor, Mrs.
John R. Tompkins softly rendered
on the piano, "Love Dreams."
Every voice was hushed and the ut
most silence prevailed when Lo
hengrin's wedding march was sound
ed by Mrs. Tompkins and the two
little ribbon girls, Ruth Lynch and
Janie Edwards, slowly descended
the stairway. These were followed
by Leon Warren with MissKatherin
Mims, H. M. Reynolds with Miss
Fuller, Willie Adams with Miss
Lillie Robinson, Benjamin Grene
ker with Miss Lillie Adams. Next
entered the matron of honor, Mrs.
P. B. Day, Jr., a sister of the
groom. The bride entered the par
lor with her eldest brother, George
W. Adams, and the bridegroom
was accompanied by his best man,
John Mims, his brother. During
the ceremony Mrs. Tompkins played
softly" Call Me Thine Own/'
The bridesmaids and matron of
honor were attired in white gowns
of the latest mode, carrying large
bouquets of yellow chrysanthemums.
The bride's gown was made of rich
white satin, with long train follow
ing from the shoulders, the conven
tional veil being caught with lilies
and orange blossoms. The ring
ceremony was used. She carried a
bouquet of bride roses and lillies of
After Mr. and Mrs. Mims were
showered with congratulations, a
social half hour followed and then
a buffet wedding supper was serv
ed, followed by block ice and
The bridal party were seated
around the bride's table io the
dining room which was decorated
in yellow and white. Miss Lillie
Adams cut the ring, Miss Kathe
rine Mims the button, Miss Lillie
Robinson the wishbone and Willie
Adams the dime.
On long tables in the rear parlor
were arranged the hundreds of
handsome tokens bestowed by ad
miring friends and relatives here
and in different parts of the State.
One seldom sees a larger and richer
assortment of china, silver, cutlery,
cut-gass, linen and paintings than
were bestowed on this occasion,
giving tangible evidence of the
popularity of the bride and groom.
Just before retiring to don a trav
eling 6uit for her wedding journey,
the bride tossed her bouquet from
the stairway and Miss Lila Fuller
became the happy possessor. With
out the knowledge of scores of
eager and alert friends, Mr. and
Mrs. Mims stealthily departed in an
automobile for an extended wed
