Galt- Brown

On Wednesday, the tenth, at 5 o’clock p. m., Miss Alice Galt was married to William Brown, of Sumter, S. C.  “Twas a quiet home wedding. The home was beautifully festooned in wild similax through which gleamed tiny electric lights of green.  Columns of white decorated in green formed the altar.  The bride was gowned in blue cloth with hat to match and carried a shower bouquet of roses and lilies of the valley.  She came in with her maid of honor, Miss Clyde Galt, who wore embroidered swiss over taffeta.  The bridesmaids were, Miss Edith Fox, Birmingham, Ala., Miss Addie Gaines, Miss Nellie Maffett, Miss Lucy Donahoo.  They were gowned in white and carried bouquets of ferns tied with green tulle.  Mr. Brown was escorted by his best man, Mr. Tom Pittard.  Rev. H. B. Mays performed the ceremony.  Just before the bride entered Miss Grace Galt sang “O Promise Me.”  She was accompanied by Miss Hudgins, piano, Mr. Percy Renfroe violin.  Mrs. W. E. Saunders, of Atlanta, played Mendelssohn’s wedding march for the entry of the bridal party which was led by Miss Galt Cook and Miss Frances Jones bearing the ribbons.  In the receiving line were, Mrs. Aaron Cook, Mrs. Aaron Puckett, Miss Kate Gaines, Miss Lucia Hicks. Miss Elinor Jones and Miss Mattie Black of Marietta, served the punch.  After the wedding supper Mr. and Mrs. Brown left for Sumter, S. C., where they will visit Mr. Brown’s relatives.  Mr. and Mrs. Brown will make their home in Etowah, Tenn., where Mr. Brown holds a responsible position with the L. and N. railroad.
