Ila Halstrom & Marvin Edmison

At a ceremony performed in the garden of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. James F. Hallstrom, at 8 p.m. Thursday Miss Ila Fern Hallstrom was united in wedlock to Lieut. Marvin T. Edmison, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.V. Edmison of Payette, Ida. Dr. Bert L. Story officiated in the presence of 125 guests.

Marjorie Smith, Ada Charlotte Miller and Ruth Surber furnished the violin and flute music. Miss Grace Hallstrom, sister of the bride, sang. The trio also performed during the reception which followed the ceremony.

The bride’s only attendant was her sister, Evelyn, who wore a floor length dress of petal pink lace with matching bolero. It was made on princess lines. Her bouquet was of Briarcliff roses and delphiniums. The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of chiffon made floor length with a flared skirt. It was made on Grecian lines with a close fitted placket of rose point lace fastened with a high neckline trimmed with self covered buttons. The long fitted sleeves came to points over the hands. Her finger tip veil was of illusion net and gathered into a cap trimmed with calla lilies and orange blossoms. Gilbert Edmunds served his brother-in-law as best man.

Following the ceremony there was a reception and tall baskets of gladioli formed the background for the tables which were lighted with pink tapers and centered with bouquets of pink roses.

The couple will be at home at Faribault, Minn., where Mr. Edmison is an instructor in science and military science at the Shattuck school. They are taking a two weeks trip into Northern Minnesota. The bride chose for travel a costume made of black sheer trimmed in white with matching accessories.
