High Noon Wedding in Georgetown

Georgetown, KY, Sept. 12. A pretty wedding was celebrated today at high noon when Miss Mary F. EVANS became the wife of Mr. Griffin COCHRAN of Cheyenne, Wyoming, at the home of the bride's brother, Mr. Ben EVANS. The house was attractively decorated with pink and white asters, asparagus and ferns. The plumosa was festooned about the balustrade and caught in ropes from the chandeliers to the corners of the rooms. Pink lighted tapers in silver sticks added to the effect.

Miss Nell COOK presided at the piano, playing Lohengrin to announce the bridal procession. First came the ribbon bearers, little Misses Frances FESSLER and Chlorinne KRING, niece of the bride, who formed an aisle of white ribbon from the head of the stairs into the parlor, where the marriage service took place. They were followed by dainty little Ruth JENKINS, who acted as flower bearer and carried a basket of pink and white blossoms. Next came the maid of honor, Miss Emma EVANS, sister of the bride, who preceded the groom, with his best man, Mr. Robert B. COCHRAN, of New York. The bride entered upon the arm of her uncle, Judge O. S. DEMING of Mount Olivet, who gave her away. Rev. B. F. MOORES, pastor of the Methodist Church, performed the ceremony in the presence of about thirty-five friends.

The bride looked lovely in a Parisian gown of white embroidered net over chiffon and silk, and a white chenille hat with white plumes. Around her neck she wore a diamond necklace, the gift of the groom. She carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses.

The maid wore pink silk organdy over taffeta and carried white roses.

Immediately after the ceremony the young couple left for an extensive trip throughout the East. After their honeymoon they will reside in Cheyenne, where Mr. Cochran has built a handsome home next to the Governor's mansion, for the coming of his bride, and has furnished it completely. The bride is a charming young girl, who has but recently moved here from the county, and the groom is the editor of The Tribune in Cheyenne.
