A wedding which will be of interest to Frankville people was that of Miss Verna Mae Webster of Ossian to Mr. Jay J. Jones of Waterloo, which was solemnized at 10:30 Tuesday, July 29, at the home of the bride’s parents Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Webster at Ossian. The wedding was characterized by simplicity and was witnessed by only the immediate family. Adding to the attractiveness of the occasion were the pretty house decorations of pink and white, the bride’s chosen color scheme, large bouquets of pink roses brightening the room, while an embankment of ferns formed a most effective background. Immediately preceding the ceremony Mrs. Henry Webster, a friend of the bride, played the wedding march. The contracting parties entered the parlor from an adjoining room, preceded by Rev. Robert Tipton, pastor of the M. E. church, who spoke the words that made them one. The ring ceremony was used and Leone Carter, niece of the bride, carried the ring in a large white rose. The bride appeared very charming in a gown of cream satin messaline, trimmed in shadow lace and carried a bouquet of bride’s roses. The groom was attired in dark blue serge. Following the ceremony a wedding dinner was served where all the appointments carried out the pink and white idea. Roses adorned the center of the table and the color scheme was also carried out in the three course menu served by Mrs. Fred Winn who was assisted by her sister Mrs. Henry Webster. Mr. Jones has made his home in Waterloo the past two years, going there from Minonk, Ill., and has since been employed by the city Gas and Electric Co. as operating engineer at the electric station of that city. The bride is well known in Frankville, having visited relatives here a number of times and has many friends who join in extending hearty congratulations for a long and happy life. The happy couple left on the afternoon train for a honeymoon trip to Illinois and on their return will reside at Waterloo where they will be at home to their friends after August 15th. Mrs. R. W. Carter and Leone of Waterloo were the only out of town guests.
