Holy Trinity Church, Georgetown, was the scene yesterday of one of the prettiest of the autumn weddings, when Miss Louise STANTON, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. STANTON, became the brides of Mr. Leo KOLB, a widely known young business man of this city. The church was beautifully decorated with chrysanthemums in tones of yellow, which were used against a background of palms and foliage.
The ceremony was read at high noon by Rev. Thomas HARLIN, pastor of the church. Mr. Joseph SHEEHY acted as Mr. KOLB’s best man, and the ushers were Mr. Robert HOWARD, Mr. Richard COMBS, Dr. Harry PROSE, and Mr. J. Rielly STANTON, brother of the bride. Mr. STANTON escorted his daughter and gave her hand in marriage.
The wedding gown was a beautiful creation of ivory-white silk, made in princess style, with a bertha of duchess lace. A full tulle veil fell gracefully to the hem of the gown, and was caught to the hair with a wreath of natural orange blossoms. The bridal bouquet was a cluster of bride roses.
Miss Grace OGDEN, of California, was the honor maid, and, in the wedding train were Misses Marie and Margaret REILLY, of New York, cousins of the bride; Miss Lillian SMITH, Miss Edith HOLT, and Miss Theresa LANE. The attendants were gowned in dainty frocks of white-dotted net, made over white taffeta slips. Yellow sashes completed the costumes.
An informal reception followed the ceremony at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. STANTON, at Thirteenth and O streets, after which Mr. and Mrs. KOLB left Washington for a wedding trip. Upon their return they will take up their residence with the bride’s parents.
