on this hapy occasion.
The spacious veranda was elabe

freshing punch was served by Misse

garland of white tulle and ribbons
which outlined an aisle for the brid

by the white pedestals, capped with
baskets of sweet peas.
Mr. A. T. Allen, pastor of the Bap
tist church, followed, taking his
place back of the little white altar,
which was offset by an attractive
white lattice, extending from either
side, the ushers, Messrs George W.
Adams and Rainsford Cantelou came
in together, followed by two bride's
maids, Miss Ruth Tompkins and Miss
Mamie Dunovant, whose charming
white crepe knit sport suits, touched
with green to match the graceful
capes, wore white slippers and hose,
becoming white hats, carrying colo
nial bouquets of pink sweet peas in
a quaint tulle tied holder. They took
their places on opposite raised stands.
Two groomsmen, Messrs John L. Ad

Master Motte Kernaghan, dressed in
a white Duchess satin suit made with
sash effect bringing the betrothal
ring in the heart of a rose.
All eyes centered on the beloved
bride as she entered on the arm of
her only brother, Mr. Leroy Parker.
Her costume was a very dressy sport
model of white georgette and crepe
knit, her lovely cape, an idea which
had figured in even the precious ju
venile dresses, was a gorgeous af
fair, showing touches of a wonderful
rose lining. A fascinating white hat,
gloves and slippers matching, and a
shower bouquet of bride's roses, or
chids and valley lillies made a toilette
which enhanced the sweet loveliness
of a bride whom old and young know
but to love.
The tableau made by the bridal
party as Mr. Allen tenderly pro
nounced the words which united the
two lives, was exquisite. Graduating

of dewey sweet peas, a suspended
basket of pastel peas over the bridal

draperies and pedestals, relieved by
a tracery of fern fronds outlining
molding and wainscoating, the pastel
shades of the sweet peas and the
colorful touches in costumes giving
the note of vividness.

The dining room was decorated in
the same artistic ideas that Mrs. B.
B. Jones carried out so beautifully
throughout the home, in pink and
green. Quantities of pink sweet peas
and feathery green fern fronds made
the elaborate decorations, with yards
of graceful pink tulle garlands, en
twined with pink ribbons.
The bridal table in the center of
the room was fascinating. Outlining
the handsome lace cover was a bor
der of the pink peas, gorgeous bou
quets of the flowers in a fluff of pink
tulle were at either ends, while in
the center the chosen flowers were
massed around the bride's souvenirs
to her attendants, hammered silver
vanity cases. Over this, a shower of
the pink peas was suspended, dainty
place cards for the b ridal party be
ig caught in the showered blossoms,
the pink garlands being arranged
fi om the shower to the four ends of
the table ending in fluffy bows whose
graceful ends fell to the floor.
