A Pretty Wedding At 1st M.P. Church

Miss Julia Frances Farquhar Becomes Bride Of Ralph E. Hains—Other News

Notwithstanding the fact that the Methodist Protestant church edifice was erected 10 years ago, the first wedding celebrated within its portals was that of Miss Julia Frances Farquhar and Ralph E. Hains which took place at 6 o’clock Tuesday evening. It is fitting that the first wedding should be that of one so closely identified with the church as Miss Farquhar who, for a number of years, has been its pianist. The church lends itself beautifully to a wedding, and the soft rays of the sinking sun caught and reflected all the subdued colors of the western windows. The chancel was heavily banked with palms and ferns and thickly studded with lilies. The impressive ring ceremony of the Methodist church was read by the Rev. George G. Schurtz.

An interesting program of bridal music was presented by Miss Greeta Mitchell, pianist, and Miss Gertrude Schumacher, vocalist. The piano numbers included the Lohengrin march, “Love’s Greeting” (Elgal [sic]), which was played softly during the ceremony, and the Mendelssohn march, which concluded the service. The vocal numbers were “Love’s Coronation,” “The Little Silver Ring Thou Gavest Me” and “Perfect Love.”
