Stylish Autumn Wedding Glenn Groover
One of the social events of the year here was the marriage, Wednesday evening, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. M.W. Kessell, of their daughter, Edna, one of Oxford’s most charming young ladies, to Mr. Glenn Groover, a prosperous and popular young farmer.
Before over one hundred friends and relatives the couple were united in wedlock by the Rev. R.K. Nevins with the impressive episcopalian service.
The bridal party consisted of George Hemingway, of Flint, best man; Miss Helen Kessell, of Pontiac, maid of honor, attired in pink silk chiffon, carrying a bouquet of pink roses; Miss Lena Mapley, of Pontiac, bride’s maid, gowned in white silk chiffon and carrying a bouquet of pink roses and white carnations; Mrs. Harry Maynard, of Detroit, matron of honor, carrying a shower bouquet of pink roses and white carnations; Mary Catherine Kessell, of Pontiac, and Hyacinth Stiles, of Oxford, flowers girls, dressed in white all over embroidery and carrying baskets of white carnations; Miss Bernice Groover, ring bearer, daintily dressed in pink silk mull and carrying the ring in a tiny pink basket.
The bride was beautifully gowned in white satin, trimmed in baby Irish lace and pearls and carried a shower bouquet of white roses. She was given away by her father. The wedding march, Mendelssohn’s, was played by Mrs. H.P. Martin, of Pontiac. Mrs. Helen Moyers acted as mistress of ceremonies while Miss Irene Brown and Master Hallet Lamb acted as ushers. The bride’s mother was beautifully gowned in blue silk foulard and the groom’s mother in lavender silk. The house decorations were carried out in pink and white.
Following the ceremony and the customary congratulations, refreshments were served on the porch which had been enclosed with canvas for the occasion. Out of town guests were present from Lapeer, Flint, Pontiac, Detroit, Leonard, Dryden, Orion, Clarkston, Ohio and New York.
Mr. and Mrs. Groover were the recipients of many beautiful and costly wedding gifts from their many friends and well wishers in this village. After a short wedding trip they will make their home on the Groover farm near Lapeer.
