Marriages from

James L. Hodges
elzenie Halbert


     One of the prettiest social events for some years was the occasion of the wedding of Mr. James L. Hodges to Miss Elzenie Halbert; ceremony was performed by Rev. E. H. Foster at the Baptist church Wednesday Feb. 11th, at 7:30 p.m.
     The church was most beautifully and tastefully decorated and was filled with invited guests and friends of contracting parties. The wedding party filed into the church to the beautiful march, played by Miss Lizzie Campbell, and the ceremony with few words was beautifully solemnized, the bride being given away by her father, J. S. Halbert.
     The bride wore a toilet of white silk grenadine with trimmings of lace and carried a boquet of lilies of the valley. She was attended by her sister, Miss Eva Halbert, as maid of honor, and Misses Virginia Hogle and Roxie McCrea, of Salem, served as bridesmaids. The maid of honor wore white chiffon and carried American beauty roses. Bridesmaids were gowned in pink chiffon, made with French necks and both carried showers of white carnations and lilies of the valley. The costumes were very attractive and made a very beautiful picture.
     Immediately after the ceremony the bridal party with the large company of guests repared to the Collier House, where reception was given and supper served in the spacious dining room, which was appropriately decorated; the reception room was canopied with a pretty network of smilax and studded with a bewitching array of La France roses. Under this becoming bower the bride and groom received congratulations.
