Before a banked arrangement of mums in light fall shades at the home of Mrs. Charles Brooks of So. Paddock St., Pontiac, Josephine Johnson and Maurice Groover of Oakwood were united in marriage. Immediate families of the couple witnessed the ceremony performed by the Rev. Ralph Claggett of the First Congregational church Saturday at 8 p.m.
Given in marriage by her father, Frank S. Johnson of West Huron St., the bride was wearing a street length white wool dress with a corsage of Johanna Hill roses and bouvardia. Her only jewelry was a double strand of pearls.
Mr. Groover is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Groover of Oakwood and was attended by his brother, Samuel also of Oakwood.
For the ceremony and reception following Mrs. Groover, mother of the bridegroom, selected a black crepe dress with corsage of pink carnations.
For traveling on their eastern honeymoon, a teal blue gabardine suit with brown accessories and a fur coat was the bride’s ensemble. Upon their return they will reside in Ortonville.
