At the residence of the bride’s father, in Cartersville, on Thursday evening last, by Rev. R. A. Headden, Mr. Gerald Griffin to Miss Nannie W. Stephens, daughter of Mr. Uriah Stephens.

The wedding was quiet, with but few guests present. It was a happy match—a most felicitous event. The young groom is too well known in the county for us to attempt to tell who he is. He has moved quietly and dignifiedly in this community and made for himself a reputation enviable and becoming to him. The bride has always been a favorite in our society and by her excellent qualities has drawn around herself a large circle of warm and admiring friends.

May all happiness be theirs.

Married, on Thursday night, the 20th, inst., at the residence of the bride’s father, by the Rev. R. B. Headden, Mr. Gerald Griffin to Miss Nannie Stephens. All of this city.

Thus has two happy hearts been chained together with the silken cord. The bride is one our loveliest flowers and a favorite in Cartersville society. The groom is well and favorably known as one of our most enterprising business men, being reared in our county, and is highly esteemed by all who know him. To the happy couple we extend our best wishes and congratulations, and trust that their bark on the matrimonial sea may sail safely into the harbor of peace and happiness, and that they may meet with no clouds or misfortunes.

The ceremony was very quiet, only a few friends being present, and the evening passed off most pleasantly. Our thanks are due to the hostess for her kind remembrance in the shape of excellent cake.
