Beaumont Girl Weds in Iowa

Miss Carol Tyrrell and H.M. Gilmore of Philadelphia Married.

BEAUMONT, Texas, Sept. 21.—Visitors from Beaumont and Dallas were among the guests who went in large number from various States to attend the wedding of Miss Carol Tyrrell of this city to Harold Moyer Gilmore of Philadelphia at Belmond, Iowa, Saturday.

The wedding took place at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Casper Tyrrell, formerly of Beaumont, at 6 o’clock in the evening. The ceremony was performed beneath a Gothic arch, handsomely decorated with yellow and bronze chrysanthemums and backed by a wall of smilax intermingled with autumn leaves, a mellow glow from white candles in tall candelabras softly illuminating the scene. The wedding party descended from a stairway beautifully flanked with clusters of autumn blooms. The Rev. Samuel Lienbach of the Congregational Church of Belmond officiated.

The bride was attended by Miss Mona Mai Cranfill of Dallas, bridesmaid; Mrs. W. Preston Tyrrell of Belmond and Mrs. Harry F. Tyrrell of Beaumont, matrons of honor, and Miss Hazel Cruse of Beaumont, maid of honor. The best man was Dr. James F. Spingler of Terre Haute, Ind., and ushers were James Irvine and Carl Sterne of Philadelphia, Robert W. Dinsmore of Reading, Pa.; G. Frederick Newhard of St. Louis, William F. Billheimer, Jr. and Frederick F. Carothers of Chicago, Charles Taft Porter of Detroit, Everett Dunmore, Jr. of Ardmore, Ok., and William C. Tyrrell, Jr. and David C. Tyrrell of Belmond, Iowa. The bride was given in marriage by her father, W.C. Tyrrell. The ringbearer was Master Harry Tyrrell of Beaumont and the flower boy, Master Dwight Tyrrell of Belmond.

The bride’s gown of ivory velvet, Lanvin model, was fashioned in uneven hemline, ending in a rounded train. Over this fell a lovely veil of Brussels lace, the cap edged with tiny orange blossoms. Miss Tyrrell wore two strands of graduated pearls and bore a gorgeous bouquet of white gardenias and lilies of the valley. The gowns of the attendants were Boulanger models of renee crepe, in autumn tints. Mrs. Duane Young, of Clarion, Iowa, played the bridal music.

A two-course dinner was served following the ceremony to 150 guest, and shortly thereafter, Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore departed for a wedding trip of two weeks to Montreal and Quebec. They will be at home after Nov. 1 at English Village, Cherry Lane, Wynnewood, Pa.

The bride is a graduate of Ward-Belmont, Nashville, Tenn., and the University of Iowa, where she was a member of the Kappa Gamma Gamma Sorority. She also attended the New England Conservatory of Music at Boston, and later studied with Phillip in Paris. The bridegroom holds a degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a law degree from the Temple Law School of Philadelphia. He is associated with Drexel & Co. of Philadelphia.
