Brilliant Wedding Mr. Oscar T. Peeples, of Chattanooga, Weds Miss Louis Munford

Nuptials At Home Of Bride.

Today At High Noon—Many From Other Points Will Be Present.

Today occurs one of the most notable weddings in Cartersville’s history. At the lovely home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Munford, “The Oaks,” Mr. Oscar T. Peeples, of Chattanooga, will lead to the latter Miss Louis D. Munford.

The decorations of the home are elaborate and tasty in their arrangement. In the front parlor, where the ceremony will be performed, is an altar, consisting of white chancel railing, on the posts of which rest two palms. Two white pedestals are on each side, each pedestal surmounted by a palm. The walls of the front and back parlors are draped in smilax to form column effects, with candelabra on each column. In rear of the alcove behind the altar a large mirror rests on a bank of pink and white chrysanthemums. The mantel is also banked in the same lovely floral gems. At the altar is a white satin cushion, on which the bridal couple kneel. [Long article continues with lists of attendants and out of town guests.]
