The Baker—Slade Wedding
There has been no lovelier girl
in Columbus than Miss Penelope
Slade, the petite brunette daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wil
liams Slade, so Trinity Episcopal
church was thronged Tuesday
evening with friends to witness
her marriage to Mr. Robert
Weathersbee Baker, of Williams
ton. N. C., who is quite popular
and successful in the manufac
turing business of that city.
It seemed to be the concensus
of opinion that Trinity church
had never been more beautifully
or artistically decorated than on
this occasion. White crash cov
ered the floor from the door to
the-altar, where an aisle had been
formed of, palms, ferns and
white chrysanthemums. The
electric lights were shaded with
these handsome flowers and ferns
and the candles were burning,
making altogether an exquisite
setting for the bridal party and
the impressive ceremony which
was performed by Rev. S. A.
Wragg, the rector.
Mr. Bradley, the organist, de
lighted the assembled friends
with musical selections before
the arrival of the bridal party,
after which he played the wed
ding march, and the ushers,
Messrs. Richard and William
Slade, brothers of the bride, and
Messrs. Owen Edge and G. T.
Powers, came up the aisle and
stood in front of the chancel.
They were followed by the maid
of honor, Miss Slade, the sister
of the bride, wearing a beautiful
dress of white lace and a short
bride's maid veil, carrying pink
The groom with his brother,
Mr. C. B. Baker, as best man,
entered from the vestry room
and awaited the bride, who came
down the aisle with her father,
who gave her away.
After the ceremony, a recep
tion was held at the home of the
of the bride's 'parents on upper
Second avenue. This, too, was
beautifully decorated with a
wealth of palms, ferns and chry
santhemum, green and white, in
parlor and dining room, and yel
low in the other apartments.*
An elegant two-course supper
was served. The punch bowl,
which was in the hall, was pret
tily garnished with pink'and
green grapes.
The bride's gown was an ex
quisite creation of heavy white
satin, lace and seed pearls,* Her
bouquet was of bride's roses,
showered with valley lilies. Her
going-away gown was a tailored
suit of dark blue with touches
of green. Her hat was of the
same tone of green, and she wore
handsome mink furs.
The bridal pair left on the Sem
inole at 10 o'clock for a wedding
journey before going to their
future home in Williamstort, N.
C., which city, by the way, was
named in honor of the great
grandfather of the bride. Her
father's mother was a Miss Wil
Numerous and elegant pres
ents from friends were showered
upon the popular young couple.
There were many beautiful and
elegant toilets at the wedding.
Mrs. Slade wore black -lace
over white charmeuse, and car
ried white, roses and valley lilies.
Mrs. Hunter, the bride's grand
mother, wore black crepe de
chine and lace.
Mrs. Joseph Pou, the aunt of
the bride, was elegantly attired in
black and white striped chiffon
over green charmeuse trimmed
with while lace and jet.
