Two Weddings Thursday of Well Known Young Lawyers
The marriage of Mr. Roger Wayles Harrison and Miss Evie Louise Nash Thursday afternoon was an especially pretty church wedding.
The Baptist church was well filled with the friends of the young couple and the stand was elaborately decorated with potted plants.
Messrs. James A. Young, Jr., Wallace Kelly, R. M. Fairleigh and Charles H. Nash, Jr., were the ushers and preceded the wedding party as they entered promptly at 4:30 o’clock to the strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. James H. Anderson.
Mr. Harrison entered on the arm of his best man, Mr. John Stites, and the bride came in with her sister, Miss May Nash. Meeting at the chancel, the bride and groom took their places on the stand and the ceremony that united them was appropriately said by Dr. Charles H. Nash, the bride’s father. Dr. Edmund Harrison, father of the groom, stood beside Dr. Nash and concluded the ceremony with a short prayer.
Upon leaving the church, Mr. and Mrs. Harrison went at once to the L & N depot and boarded the 5:18 train for a Southern trip. Returning next week, they will be at home at Bethel College.
The bride’s costume was a handsome traveling dress of blue.
A large party of friends accompanied them to the depot and threw handfuls of rice at them as they boarded the sleeper.
Mr. Harrison is the youngest son of Rev. E. Harrison, President of Bethel Female College, and is a rising young attorney. His bride is the oldest daughter of Rev. C. H. Nash, D.D., Pastor of the Baptist church. Petite and graceful, with dark hair and eyes, her beauty is of the Southern type. She is a graduate of Bethel College with the degree of A.M., and is an accomplished musician.
Mr. Charles Odom Prowse and Miss Elizabeth Lyon, of Nashville, were married Thursday evening at 7:30 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Julia B. Lyon, in Nashville. Rev. M. P. Logan, of the Episcopal Church, officiated. They left for Monterey, Tennessee, to spend a few days before returning home.
The bride, a few years ago, visited Mrs. C. K. Wyly, in this city, and Mr. Prowse met her and the attachment was formed that has so happily culminated. She is a young lady of aristocratic lineage and possesses much beauty and many personal charms.
Mr. Prowse is a son of County Clerk John P. Prowse, and is the Republican nominee for County Attorney.
They will live at the home of the groom’s father, on South Main Street.
Mr. John Thomas Woosley and Miss Ida Mai Hiser will be married at the home of the bride-to-be’s brother, Mr. T. G. Hiser, on West Fifteenth Street, next Thursday, June 22nd.
Hon. Denny P. Smith, Commonwealth’s Attorney, and Miss Susie White, daughter of Mr. W. C. White of Cadiz, will be married on June 28th.
