A Pretty Home Wedding
Was solemnized Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Malone when their daughter, Miss Myrtle Malone, was given in marriage to Mr. W. C. Jamison, B. S. Smiser officiating.
The home was tastefully and beautifully decorated with ferns, chrysanthemums, and geraniums. White and yellow were the color scheme. The ceremony opened with Miss Josephine Malone at the piano, whose fingers gave to each note that heartfelt touch of love.
Mr. Carrol Franks sang in his usual pleasing manner, “I Love You Truly”. Next came Janice Petty and Mamie Lou Malone looking so dear in dainty white lace dresses over yellow satin and carrying trailing white ribbons to the altar. Miss Kate Logan, gowned in white satin with lace, carrying a handsome bunch of yellow chrysanthemums, the bride’s maid, and attendant, Mr. Richard Nichols, entered and were followed by Mr. Preston Malone, best man and Miss Vivian Jamison, maid of honor, who wore a lovely gown of white crepe and lace and held a large bouquet of chrysanthemums. Immediately preceding the bride and groom came the ring bearer, Annis Rachel Malone (better known and loved as Kee) wearing a dreamy dress of yellow and white.
The bride wore a handsome suit of blue broadcloth and a hat beneath which she was most beautiful. She carried a gorgeous bunch of American Beauty roses and they were rivaled in their claims to beauty by the timid loveliness of the one who held them.
The groom wore the conventional suit and a look of conquest that gave a new charm to the face and form of him whom Caddo people esteem most highly.
Only the immediate families and a few friends witnessed the ceremony and the couple left at once for Dallas where they will spend several days. (December 1st locals mention Mr. Jamison in Durant on business.)
Miss Myrtle Malone has lived her life in Caddo, is a member of the Christian Church and is loved and esteemed by all as being a young woman of modest manners, very capable of residing over and making church, social and home circles successful and attractive. Blessed is the young woman who has grown to womanhood without spot or blemish of character.
Mr. Jamison is a member of the Presbyterian Church, is one of Caddo’s successful bankers, and he is also a success in having gained the highest respect and esteem that Caddo can give. He has a cheerful word and warm hand shake for all he meets and all are glad he is to continue a citizen of Caddo and that he has won one of Caddo’s sweetest and purest young women. May joy and peace and prosperity be theirs.
After a trip to Texas points they will make their home in the Chiles bungalow.
