Two Popular Young People Wedded at Home of Bride.

A very pretty home wedding was that of Miss Annabel Stephens, of this city, to Mr. Luther Richards, of Calhoun, which took place at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Stephens, Tuesday evening last at nine o’clock.

The house was beautifully decorated with pink and white roses and goldenrod, artistically arranged with pots of ferns and palms, leading up to a beautiful arch of roses and smilax, where the couple stood for the ceremony after passing through an aisle formed with candles in old-fashioned candle-sticks, the lights being shaded with pink.

The wedding march was played by Mrs. Ruohs Pyron, and the ceremony was performed by Rev. G. W. Duval, pastor of the First Methodist church.

The bride wore a going-away suit of hunter’s green cloth with satin-covered buttons and pipings of black with hat of green velvet, and carried an armful of white carnations and ferns.

After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Richards left for Calhoun, where Mr. Richards is engaged in business.

Among the out-of-town guests were Mrs. Rachel Keith and Capt. Dave Wylie, of Atlanta; Mr. Will Richards, of Jasper; Mr. and W. T. McLeod, of Etowah, Tenn.; Mrs. G. H. Rawlins, of Rome; Mr. Roy Richards, of Mercer University, and the following party from Calhoun; Mr. Clay Dyar, Mr. Claude David, Dr. and Mrs. J. H. Boston, Mrs. S. Sims, Mr. Lawrence Neel, Miss Ethel Richards, Mrs. Tom Boaz, Mr. Ed Fuller, Mr. Fred Roach, Mr. W. E. Fuller, Mr. C. W. Hill, Mr. W. H. Bonner, Mr. G. F. Robinson, Mr. F. A. Roach.
