One of the prettiest June weddings was solemnized Tuesday evening, June 30, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert A. Hale, when their daughter, Muriel Russell, was united in marriage to Albert Junius Newsom. Preceding the ceremony Miss Alice McCoy song [sic] “I Love You Truly.” To the strains of the Lohengrin bridal chorus, played by Miss Elsie Clair, the bride entered the parlor, on the arm of her father. The bride was gowned in white messaline, with a veil, and carried a bouquet of bride roses. The bridesmaid, Miss Hazel Ford, wore a gown of sheer white over yellow, with a bouquet of coreopsis. David Newsom, brother of the groom, was best man.
The parlor was decorated in yellow and white flowers and the bride and groom stood in a bay window under a bower of flowers. Rev. Dr. Young, of Taylor-Street M.E. Church, officiated. Refreshments were served in the dining room. The color effect here was pink and green, with quantities of Caroline Testout roses being used. The hall was beautiful in roses, crimson ramblers being effectively twined in the staircase and from the chandelier.
Mr. and Mrs. Newsom left for Coos County, where they are to make their home.
