PRETTY WEDDING IS HELD NEW YEAR’S
Miss Mildred Jones and Richard Tindall United at First Baptist Church,
In the soft glow of candle light, before an altar made beautiful with
baskets of calendulas and evergreen, Miss Mildred Jones became the bride of
Richard Tindall in a single ring ceremony performed in the First Baptist
Church, Thursday evening, January 1, 1931, at 8 o’clock with Rev. T. P.
The musical program which preceded the ceremony included piano solo,
“Gbepie’s Prelude” played by Miss Florence Tindall, a sister of the
bridegroom; a vocal duet, “Lovely Night,” by Miss Katharine and Lena Gross;
and two solos, “O Promise Me” and “I Love You Truly” sung by Mrs. Ben T.
Clagg, an aunt of the bride.
The bridal party entered to the strains of the Bridal Chorus from
Lohengrin’s, Mendelssohn’s wedding march being used for the recessional.
The groom was attended by his cousin, Tindall Robertson, as best man.
Preceding them, little Jackie Dorr carried the ring on a yellow satin
Miss Ellen Luymes wearing a gown of lavender taffeta, a yellow picture hat
and a corsage of pink rosebuds, acted as bridesmaid. Mary Tindall, sister
of the groom, followed the bridesmaid, scattering flowers in the path of the
bride who entered on the arm of her father.
White net over silk was used to fashion the bride’s quaint dress. The bodice
was made with lace and the ankle length skirt was trimmed from hem to
waistlines with graduated tucks. Her full length silk tulle veil, which was
held in place by orange blossoms and the lace handkerchief, which she
carried, were used at the wedding of her aunt, Mrs. Ben Clagg twenty-four
years ago. A band of yellow velvet ribbon around her waist and shower of
butterfly roses and narcissus provided interesting bits of color to her
The groom and best man wore suits of oxford gray with boutonnières of
Mrs. Alfred Aalberts and Robert Tindall acted as ushers.
Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held for the relatives
and friends in the church dining room which was attractively decorated in
the bride’s colors, lavendar and yellow. In the receiving line with the
bridal party were Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Jones, parents of the bride, and Mr.
and Mrs. J. D. Tindall, parents of the groom. After congratulations, a
dainty and delicious two-course luncheon was served by the Misses Agnes
Johnson, Greta DeJong, Genevieve Phipps and June Kern.
The newly weds will spend their honeymoon in Oklahoma in the home of the
bride’s sister, Mrs. A. F. Connelly. After March the first, they will be at
home west of Merrill where the groom has been farming for the past year.
The best wishes of a host of friends attend this worthy couple in the
founding of their new home.
