A pretty marriage ceremony was that in which Mr. Henry W. Johnson and Miss Lillie L. Woodbury were the contracting parties, at the Baptist church, in Adairsville, Thursday evening at 8 o’clock. The altar of the church was beautifully decorated for the occasion with a wealth of roses, mingled with rare flowers from the hot house, under the artistic touch of Mesdames J. M. and G. A. Veach. At the given time the organ sent forth the rich notes of Handel’s Wedding March, played by an artist, Miss Rosa Woodbury, when the attending escorts, Mr. Robt. Harbin with Miss Rosa Bowdoin, Mr. H. M. Veach with Miss Pinckey Cain, Mr. R. L. McCollum with Miss Minnie Branch, Mr. A. M. Capers with Miss Alexander, entered, the ladies single in each aisle, followed by the gentlemen, who met their escort and took their respective positions, while the handsome couple who were to be made one, came in lastly, and without delay the bridal party arranged themselves about the lovely floral altar, when Rev. Mr. Dyar, of Calhoun, came forward and delivered to the company a forcible and appropriate address upon the sanctity and importance of the occasion. He concluded his address by producing the ordinary’s license and soon had our young folk united for life with the most orthodox tie of his church. The large audience in attendance were much interested and pleased with this pretty ceremony. Many saw the bride and groom to the depot and sent well wishes after them as they took the north bound train for “over the hills and far away.”
