PRETTY HOME WEDDING
MISS REBECCA HUGHES AND EARL MOHR MARRIED
WILL MAKE HOME IN WESTFIELD
On Wednesday afternoon, December 2d, at the home of the bride's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Hughes, occured the marriage of Miss Rebecca Hughes, to Earl Mohr, of Westfield. The service was conducted by Rev. Gilbert, pastor of the First Methodist church and was witnessed by the intimate relatives and a few intimate friends. The home presented an attractive appearance in its floral decorations which were carried out in the bride's chosen colors of yellow and white. The bridal couple were unattended. The bride's gown was of white crepe de chine with trimmings of brocade satin and lace. Her bouquet was a shower of bride's roses.
Following the ceremony an informal reception was held in the home of Miss Rosa Held, 1052 Franklin street.
Yellow and white predominated in the decorations used in the home, the dining room being especially attractive. An artistic bouquet of yellow and white chrysanthemums formed the centerpiece of the long table at which all appointments completed the pretty color effect. The menu of the wedding repast was served in three courses and Miss Held was assisted in extending the courtesies at this time by Misses Lucy Winders and Gertrude Bogen.
Mr. and Mrs. Mohr left on the evening train for their home in Westfield where Mr. Mohr is engaged in the hardware business. The bride wore a traveling suit of dark blue broadcloth with hat and gloves to match.
The bride is a graduate of the local high school, being a member of the class of 1912. She was also a member of the debating team at that time. She is most popular among the younger social set, having a large circle of friends. The young people will be at home to their friends after January 1.
