Happy Nuptials Solemnized Thursday Evening at the Bride’s Home
A Stanford Lawyer Weds One of Mason County’s
Pretty and Accomplished Daughters.
The wedding of Miss Sudie Leo Pickett and Mr. William A. Tribble was an exceptionally beautiful affair, celebrated at the home of the bride's parents on Tuckahoe last evening.
The ceremony was performed in the presence of a large concourse of friends and relatives of the contracting parties, Rev. W. W. Hall, assisted by Rev. W. D. Rice, the latter of Augusta, officiating.
The spacious home was effectively decorated in chrysanthemums, mistletoe and holly.
Promptly at 7 o'clock, to the familiar strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march beautifully rendered by Miss Judith R. Carpenter, of Paris, the two fairy-like ribbon bearers, Margaret Bacon and Ellen Osborne, aged five years, entered, forming an aisle for the bridal procession, followed by Revs. Hall and Rice. The groom and his best man, Hon. Harvey Helm of Stanford, entered preceded by the bride leaning on the arm of the pretty maid of honor, Miss Mary Hall. The bride and groom standing beneath a canopy of similax and chrysanthemums, surrounded by the many friends, made a picture of great beauty.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Pickett, possesses many lovely traits of character and will be sadly missed by her friends who are legion in old Mason. The husband of her choice is highly esteemed for personal affability and fine business attainments.
The bride wore a magnificent gown of white brocaded satin, the plain high corsage trimmed with mousselin do soie and point lace. A filmy veil of tulle added to her grace and beauty. She carried a bouquet of Bride roses and similax.
Miss Hall was charmingly attired in white organdy, and carried La Franco roses.
After the ceremony an informal reception was held and a royal wedding feast was served. The dining room was gorgeously decorated in pink and white chrysanthemums. The bride's table was arranged under a canopy of white ribbons and similax, the center of the table banked with chrysanthemums, ferns and pink shaded candles added to the artistic effect.
The presents were exceptionally beautiful and numerous.
Mr. and Mrs. Tribble left on the 10:50 train for a tour, and on their return will be at home at Stanford, Ky.
The Stanford Interior-Journal in announcing the nuptials some days ago, had this to say of the happy couple: "The bride has frequently visited here and is not only a very handsome and stylish but a highly cultivated and loveable young woman. Of the fortunate gentleman who has won her, naught but praise can be said. Morally without reproach, he is well thought of by everyone. A good lawyer and a fine business man he is constantly adding to his comfortable estate, and if he is not already a rich man, he will in a few years be one of our wealthiest citizens."
