The first, and perhaps the most brilliant marriage of the season, will be that of Miss Sara Parrott, of our city, to Dr. Robert Pillow, of Columbia, Tenn.  The invitations are out announcing the marriage at 9 o’clock a. m., on Oct. 7, at the Methodist Church.  The invitations are models of elegant simplicity, and are executed in the highest style of the printer’s art.

The Society Event.

The social sphere of our little city has not received lately the commotion that it did yesterday on the occasion of the marriage of Miss Sara Parrott, the belle and favorite of this community, to Dr. Wm. Pillow, of Columbia, Tenn., the ceremony being performed at the Methodist church by the Rev. Mr. J. B. Robbins, at 9 a. m.  To the sweet, melodious strains of a well executed wedding march, the wedding party, attended by the attendants and ushers entered the church, which, by the way, was crowded with friends and admirers of the fair bride.  The ceremony was very impressive and beautiful, and soon thereafter the couple boarded the cars for their future home in Columbia, Tenn.  They were attended as far as Calhoun by the attendants and some friends.  The bride was beautifully attired in a rich violet velvet, while the rest of the party were appropriately and elegantly dressed.

Attendants – Miss Julia Parrott and Col. Pillow, of Columbia, Tenn.
Miss Alice Trammell, of Dalton, and Mayor M. L. Johnson.
Miss Willie Howard, of Atlanta, and Douglas Wikle, Miss Mamie Wikle and Col. Witherspoon, of Columbia, Tenn.
Ushers – W. H. Howard, Jno. W. Akin, Harris Best and Theo. M. Smith.

The church was handsomely decorated for the occasion, Mrs. J. A. Baker being the artist.  Expensive and useful presents were profuse.

The bride, as we have said, was a general favorite with our people, and greatly beloved by all who knew her.  The groom is an intelligent and progressive gentleman, and very popular in the community in which he resides.
