    • "The Wedding

      One of the Most Beautiful Brides Griffin Has Ever Seen
      Beautiful Decorations and Solemn Ceremony

      The wedding of Miss Effie Dickenson to Mr. Jackson Garland last night was an occasion that filled the Baptist church to its utmost limits with the many friends and admirers of the bride and groom. The church was adorned with four arches of evergreen and holly, and the bride and groom faced the audience, with the attendants ranged on either side, forming a beautiful semi-circle. Shortly after the appointed hour the ceremony took place, and was performed in a very impressive manner by Rev. F.M. Daniel. The bride was dressed in white silk, with orange blossoms and long veil, and was one of the most exquisitely lovely pictures we have ever seen. The bridesmaids were also attired in white silk, full dress, and presenting an imposing array of beauty. They were Misses Bessie Mills, Mary Burr, Ione Hammond, Annie Bates, Hattie Head, Ora Boyd, Mary Niles and Eunice Green. The groomsmen were Will Davis, Allen Bates, Lewis Niles, F. G. Bailey, Henry Amos, Bird Garland, Arthur Stewart and Otis Couch, all attired like the groom, in Prince Alberts.

      After the ceremony an elegant reception was held at the residence of the bride's mother, which was attended by many invited guests until a late hour. The presents were numerous and elegant."
