Two Hearts Joined as One
A pretty wedding was solemnized in the home of John Hoffman, on South Broadway, Thursday evening, at 7:30, by Rev. George Mayer, of the Evangelical Church, when Roy Y. Hughes, of St. Paul, and Miss Emma Elizabeth Hoffman of this city, were made man and wife. The parlor was handsomely decorated with asters and king ferns, of which a bower was made in the corner of the room, where the marriage ceremony was performed, the couple standing under a suspended bell of asters. As they approached their position Mrs. Adolph Burmeister, played the Mendelssohn Wedding March on the piano. The bride was gowned in imported embroidered Swiss over white silk, and the groom wore the customary black suit. The bridesmaid, Miss Frieda Hoffman, a sister of the bride, wore a gown of pink print silk tissue. The best man was Henry Hoffman, a brother of the bride. A bouquet of white roses was carried by the bride, and the bridesmaid carried a bouquet of sweet peas.
After the ceremony the fifty to sixty guests of relatives and intimate friends were served with a beautiful wedding feast in the dining room, which was overhung with wreaths of asters and evergreen twigs.
Marion and Hopkinsville
City Editor Bacon of the “New Era” Capture’s One of Marion’s Fairest Daughters
The receipt of cards of invitation to the wedding of Miss Carrie F. Moore, of this city, to Mr. Merriweather E. Bacon, city editor of the New Era at Hopkinsville, was no surprise to the friends of this popular couple, especially those who had watched the courtship. Mr. Bacon has been a most devoted suitor for the hand and heart of the talented teacher since she first went to Hopkinsville to take the management of the Lockwood Business College and how well he has succeeded is evidenced by the announcement of the wedding which is to take place Wednesday afternoon, October 9th, at 3 o’clock, at the Methodist Church in this city. Miss Moore is the youngest daughter of Judge James A. Moore and is a justly popular girl on account of her native wit and her bright mind coupled with a most attractive personality. Her gracious manner has won her warm friends and admirers everywhere she is known, and it’s with regret we relinquish her to our neighboring city. The Record-Press extends congratulations to its Brother Editor with the assurance that he has won a life partner who could, if need be, fill his place in an editorial capacity and who will be a helpmate indeed.
