WILLIAMSTON, N. C.. FRIDAY, JUNE 20. 1913
The marriage of Miss Blanche
Gary second daughter of Chief
Justice Eugene B. Gary, and Mr.
Francis Sylvester Hassell, was
solemnized on Wednesday, June
4th, at high noon, at the home of
the bride's parents.
The house was beautifully de
corated for the occasion,—palms,
daises and sweet peas being most
effectively used, —while the lights
from many candles shed a soft
glow over all.
Miss Plevna Seal presided at
the piano, and promptly at noun,
to the strains of Lohengrin's
Wedding March, the groom and
his best man, Mr. .Charles P.
Hassell, came from the library,
and the bride, leaning on her
father's arm, entered from the
hall. They met before the im
provised altar, and Rev. Mr.
Sanders Guignard, rector of
Trinity Church, performed the
ceremony which made them man
After the ceremony, cake, wine
and punch were served, and a
most appropriate and pretty toast
to the bride was responded to by
Gov. John Gary Evans, a cousin
of the bride.
The bride was unusually lovely
in her wedding dress of ivory
messaline with its trimming of
real lace, her long veil, arranged
cap fashion, being held with or
ange blossoms. She carried a
large shower bouquet of bride's
The bride and groom were the
recipients of many beautiful and
The couple left on the west
bound train for their honeymoon,
and will be at home after June
21st in Wilson, N. C. The bride
traveled in a handsome tailored
sdit of new blue whip cord, with
hat and gloves to match.
The bride is one of the prettiest
as well as one of the most popular
of Abbeville's young ladies. She
is an accomplished pianist of rare
attainment, and unlike so many
good performers was always
ready to give pleasure to her
friends by her performances.
Her agreeable and pleasing per
sonality made her a favorite in
Abbeville, and it is with sincere
regret that her many friends see
her leave. Hers are true friends,
however, and since she is given
into such good hands, the loss is
in part compensated.
The groom is a prominent law
yer of Wilson, N. C. He has a
handsome, intelligent face, with
plenty of resolution written about
the lines of his chin. He already
enjoys a splendid practice, and if
appearances count for much it
may be safely predicted that he
has a bright career ahead of him.
The out-of-town guests were:
Gov. and Mrs. John Gary Evans,
Miss Victoria Evans, Spartanburg
S. C.; Col. John E. Woodard,
Wilson, N. C.; Mr. Charles S.
Hassell, Washington, D. C.; Mrs.
Marie Gary Eason, Charleston, S.
