Married In Alton Church
Ethel Britton Bride of Raymond Friedmann
St. Mary's church of Alton was the scene of a pretty fall wedding Tuesday, November 4, at 7:30 a.m., when Miss Ethel Britton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Britton of Alton, became the bride of Raymond Friedmann, son of Mrs. Jacob Friedmann of Alton. They exchanged nuptial vows in the presence of a large company of relatives and friends. Rev. Father Kelm read the double ring ceremony.
Miss Erlynne Britton, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid and Joseph Friedmann, brother of the groom was best man.
The bride wore an attractive navy blue redingote with a white turban and shoulder length veil. She carried white gloves and a prayer book. Her only ornament was a small gold cross, a gift of the groom. She and her bridesmaid wore corsages of pink roses and sweet peas.
The bridesmaid wore a similar dress of navy blue with pink accessories and a shoulder length veil.
Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was held at the home of the groom's mother for the bridal party. The wedding reception was held at the home of the bride's parents. A dinner was served at 12 o'clock to about 65 relatives and friends. Decorations and appointments stressed the bride's chosen colors of pink and white. A large wedding cake was the centerpiece for the bridal table.
The honors of serving were accorded to the Misses Marjorie Hoss, Kathleen Chapman, Georgine Osborne and Mrs. Marshall Rees. Mrs. Gerald McCarthy was dining room hostess. Mrs. T. K. Chapman, Mrs. John Van Pelt and Mrs. Earl Chapman prepared the dinner.
The young couple will reside in Alton where Mr. Friedmann is an implement dealer.
