At a simple home wedding in Detroit Friday evening, Miss Doris Gallup, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harper Gallup of Detroit, became the bride of W. James Trott, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Trott, of Lockport.
The ceremony was read by the Rev. Robert L. Swaim of the Woodward Avenue Presbyterian church at 8 o’clock in the presence of relatives and friends of the couple. A large blue bowl filled with white gladioli formed a background where the couple stood.
Miss Gallup wore a street-length of white soft sharkskin trimmed with ice-blue buttons, and a shoulder bouquet of pale pink gladioli and white roses. Her only attendant was her sister, Miss Janet Gallup, who wore a light blue dress fashioned much the same as the bride’s and a corsage of white gladioli centered with pink roses.
Assisting Mr. Trott as best man was Dr. Harvard Romence of Detroit.
Preceding the ceremony, two vocal selections, “If God Left Only You” and “The Sunshine of Your Smile” were sung by Miss Janet Gallup, accompanied by Miss Doris Trott of Lockport, sister of the groom. Mrs. Wellington Relyea presided at the piano for the processional. Mrs. Relyea was a college roommate of the bride.
After a reception to 50 guests, Mr. and Mrs. Trott left on a trip through Northern Michigan. On their return they will be at home on Park avenue in Royal Oak, Mich.
Both the bride and groom attended Hillsdale college at Hillsdale, Mich. Mr. Trott has done graduate work at Columbia university and the University of Michigan and at present is connected with the research division of General Motor in Detroit.
