The double wedding of Miss Marion Harriet Hinds, daughter, and Miss Clara
Marie Jackson, niece of Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Hinds, and Mr. William Henry
Hospers, of Orange City, and Mr. Raymond Roach, of Seattle, Wash., was
celebrated in the First Congregational Church on Monday evening, June 24th,
at 7 o’clock, Rev. M. O. Lambly officiating in the marriage service. Miss
Hattie Dresselhuys played the Lohengrin bridal chorus as the bridal party
led by the ushers, Messrs. Milo Gibbs, of Alton, Charles Bale, of Manson,
Edward Haas and George Lamb, came down the ribboned aisle. The bridal party
took their places before a beautiful floral setting in the wedding colors of
pink and white, roses and peonies being used in profusion with a background
of palms and ferns.
Miss Hinds was attired in a princess gown of silk net fashioned over a
foundation of duchess satin with trimmings of seed pearls and silk fringe.
A long tulle veil held in place by a spray of orange blossoms and falling in
graceful folds to the hem of her train completed the pretty costume.
Miss Jackson wore a gown of white satin radium with trimmings of princess
lace and crystal fringe. A long veil caught with orange blossoms reached to
the hem of her court train. Arm bouquets of bridal roses were carried by
Immediately after the ceremony a reception held at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
O. H. Hinds, 1101 Franklin street, was attended by one hundred and fifty
guests. The pleasant home had been the medium for many floral offerings
from a large circle of friends. All the details of the decorations in both
the home and the church were in charge of girlhood friends of the two
brides, these friends also making efficient hostesses of the dining room
during the reception hours from eight o’clock until ten, the list including
Mrs. J. M. Fettes, Mrs. Ray Edmonds, Misses Viola Shearon, Elsie Nicholson,
Leila Huebsch, Charlotte Osborne, Blanche Johns, Ethel Peck, Barbara Gaynor,
Ida Blanche Townsend, Mabel Huebsch and Mae Schneider.
The decorations of the home were in the pink and white roses, peonies and
mock orange blossoms. A large shower bouquet of marguerites and pink peonies
centered the prettily appointed dining room table with its cloth of Mexican
drawn work, and the ices served reflected the chosen colors.
A feature of special interest to the guests privileged to be present at this
time were the instrumental selections given by Mr. Milo Gibbs, of Alton.
The brides have a large circle of friends in their home town and both have
been most popular in church and social circles, and Miss Hinds has been the
leader of the choir of the First Congregational church for the past two
years. She is a musician of exceptional ability and will be greatly missed
in musical circles. Both brides were graduates of the local high school.
Miss Jackson being a member of the Class of 1902 and Miss Hinds finished
with the Class of 1906.
Mr. Hospers is a banker in Orange City and Mr. Roach holds a responsible
position with the Western branch of the New York Life Insurance Company.
The bridal couples departed on the late train, Mr. and Mrs. Hospers going
for a month’s visit to Colorado Springs and a trip through Yellowstone Park,
and Mr. and Mrs. Roach will sail on June 28th from Quebec for a trip abroad.
Mrs. Roach wore a pretty traveling suit of gray English serge with a waist
and hat of corresponding shade. Mrs. Hospers traveled in a pretty suit of
goblin blue silk poplin with which was worn a modish hat in tagal straw.
