Taylorsville Marriage.
Miss Bessie Harling and Mr. Robert Eberhardt Happily United.

On Wednesday evening, August the 14th at 8 o’clock the wedding of Miss Bessie Harling and Mr. Robert Eberhardt was solemnized at the Taylorsville Baptist church.  A great number of the friends of this happy bride and groom assembled to see this pretty and interesting wedding.

A sweet simplicity prevailed throughout the wedding which made it beautiful, yet, full of solemnity and sacredness.

The church was artistically decorated with great embankments of ferns, palms, rich garlands of vines and white cut flowers.  The soft clear lights lent grace and beauty to the whole.

When the stillness which permeated the church, was broken by the soft, sweet strains of Lohengrin’s wedding march played by Miss Ina Van Metre, the bridal party entered.

Mr. E. L. Harling and Mr. Birchmore, the ushers, were the first to enter.  They were followed by the bride and her maid of honor, Miss Lizzie Eberhardt, entering from the left, and the groom and his best man Mr. E. O. Davis, entering from the right.  They met at the altar where the beautiful ceremony, which made their hearts as one, was performed by Reverend A. J. Morgan, pastor of the church.

The bride was beautifully gowned in a white lingerie dress elaborately trimmed with lace.  The soft folds of the veil worn were prettily arranged and artistically caught to her soft, brown hair.  Her flowers were white carnations.  She made a lovely, graceful and attractive bride.

Miss Eberhardt was dressed in a daintily made white mull.  Her dress was admirably adapted to her tall stately figure.  She carried a lovely bunch of pink carnations.

Mendelssohn’s wedding march was played for them to march out.

Mr. and Mrs. Eberhardt left immediately for a wedding trip to Tallulah Falls.

The bride is an accomplished young lady and has many charming characteristics which have won for her many friends.  Mr. Eberhardt, formerly of Elberton, has for the last few years been here as the cashier of the Taylorsville bank and during that time, he has gained the friendship, esteem, and confidence of all with whom he came in contact.  He is a young man possessing fine business qualifications and a sterling character.

The popularity of the young couple was attested by the great number of gifts received.  There was a handsome collection of cut-glass, silverware, etc.

Among the out of town guests present at the wedding were Misses Mattie and Lizzie Eberhardt, Carlton, Ga., Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Harling, Atlanta, Ga., Mr. and Mrs. A. G. White, Cartersville, Miss Ina Van Metre, Kingston, Mr. Will Brisendine, Rome.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Eberhardt wish that peace and joy may attend them throughout their wedded life, and that nothing will mar their happiness.
