After the marriage of Miss Lulu Maud Hempstead and Mr. Frederick Charles Perkins, which took place at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.I. Hempstead, at Reynoldsburg, Ohio, Wednesday, December 5, a wedding supper was served to the immediate relatives and friends, who were guests. The wedding was a very pretty one.
Promptly at 5 o’clock, the members of the bridal party entered the parlor and were met beneath the bower of smilax and wedding bells by the officiating clergymen, Rev. C.G. Watson, pastor of Hoge Memorial church, this city, and Rev. Mr. Jacobs, pastor of the Reynoldsburg Presbyterian church, where the ceremony was performed, the impressive ring service being used.
Mrs. Vinton G. Eastman, sister of the bride, was the matron of honor, and Miss Katharine Corcoran, the bridesmaid. Mr. Howard Cook, cousin of the groom, was best man. Mr. Vinton G. Eastman and Mr. Scott Hempstead stretched the ribbons which formed the aisle for the bridal party as they entered the parlor to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march, played by Miss Zoa Fogg of this city.
At the bride’s table were seated the bride and groom, Miss Katharine Corcoran, Mr. Howard Cooke, Rev. Mr. Watson and Rev. Mr. Jacobs. When the bride cut the cake the ring was found by Mr. Scott Rochelle.
At 7:30 a reception was held, at which 50 guests called.
The bride and groom left at ten o’clock for the Hartman hotel, leaving Thursday morning for Cleveland and Indianapolis.
