The wedding of Miss Jennie Monds and Oren Stanley Ellis was celebrated Saturday morning at 10 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Monds, on Wyatt Street. Owing to illness in the family the wedding was a quiet one and only relatives and immediate friends were invited.
An altar of palms and ferns and white narcissi was arranged in front of the mantel in the living room where the ceremony was said. Vases and baskets of flowers were used in adorning the house. Before the bridal party entered, Miss Willie Watson, accompanied by Mrs. Charles Davis, sang "I Love You Truly."
As the strains of the wedding march sounded the party came down the stairway. Little Miss Dorris Fox and Billy Fox, niece and nephew of the bride, acting as flower girl and ring bearer, led the way. They were followed by Mrs. Clarence Coffer, matron of honor, who came with her sister, the bride. They were met at the altar by the minister, Rev. G. W. Burrows, pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and the bride-groom attended by his best man, Ernest Monds. The beautiful ring service was used in an impressive manner.
The bride wore a dark-blue tricotine coat suit, with hat to match and gloves and shoes of tan. Her corsage was of Bride roses. Mrs. Coffer wore a Belgian blue satin, with a corsage bouquet of pink roses.
Following the ceremony and congratulations the young couple left on an eastern wedding trip. Mrs. Coffer accompanied them and will be joined by Mr. Coffer in Cincinnati. Upon their return they will go housekeeping in their own home in Johnson City, where Mr. Ellis is engaged in the contracting business.
Many presents, consisting of cut glass, china, silver and handmade linens, were displayed in an upstairs room.
Miss Monds is a former student of the Chattanooga High school and is quite talented in music. She is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Monds and sister of Mrs. Arch Fox, Mrs. Clarence Coffer and Miss Pearl Monds.
Mr. Ellis is a graduate of the University of Chattanooga and has many friends in Chattanooga.
Mr. and Mrs. Lee Fox came from Bellbuckle for the wedding and Miss Pearl Monds came from Houston, Tex.
