G. Henry Crane and Miss Eva May Rorick, at Morenci
The wedding of G. Henry Crane, of this city, bookkeeper at C.B. Pennock’s novelty store, and Miss Eva May Rorick, daughter of Casper Rorick, of Morenci, took place last evening, at 7 o’clock, at the Congregational church, at Morenci, and was the swellest social function that ever took place in that pleasant little village.
The church was magnificently trimmed in a green and white effect, a profusion of palms being scattered about the room. Everyone of the large windows had row upon row of burning candles and at the altar candles were burning.
Rev. John McLean, of the Baptist church, performed Episcopal ceremony, and during its reading the ever sweet Traummeri was softly played on the organ.
A departure from the usual custom was the signing of Lohengrin’s wedding march by a chorus of female voices, concealed behind a handsome bank of palms. The effect was charming.
The bride and her maids were dressed in white organdie, and the gentlemen were in full dress. Dr. G.B.M. Seager appeared for Mr. Crane, and with Miss Rorick were Miss Horton, of Morenci, Miss Jewett, of Dayton, Ohio, and Lela Rorick. The bride carried lilies of the valley, Miss Jewett and Miss Horton carnations, and Lela Rorick American beauty roses.
The ushers were Clark Baldwin, Chas. Whiteney, Seward Wilcox and Theodore Wagner.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the residence, and at about 1 o’clock the couple drove to North Morenci to take the Wabash west.
There were 45 who took a special on the [unclear] & L.N., and returning they reached Adrian about 2 o’clock.
