Miss Smith and Mr. Pittard Married Last Week at Cassville.

The social event of the season was the wedding of Mr. Henry Connor Pittard and Miss Mamie Dunlap Smith which was solemnized in the Baptist church, Cassville May, 28 at 8:30 o’clock p. m.

The church was tastefully decorated in ferns and magnolias.

The ushers, Messrs. M. O. Crawford, W. S. Chunn, Prof. J. W. Jackson and Dr. R. E. Wilson, entered singly to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march skillfully played by Miss Gertrude Chunn and stood under arches on either side.  Next came the attendants: Miss Gertrude Milhollin, Matrons, Mrs. J. W. Jackson, Mrs. W. R. Layton, Mrs. W. S. Chunn, Mrs. M. O. Crawford and Mrs. R. E. Wilson who were becomingly attired in cream net with touches of pink and carried pink carnations.

The attendants entered alone and stood in groups of three under a broad arch on either side of the bride and groom.  Following them came the bride daintily attired in a lovely gown of white mull elaborately trimmed with lace and ribbon.

She carried a shower bouquet of brides roses caught with tulle and was attended by her sister, Louise, as maid of honor, who wore a gown of white with touches of blue and carried white carnations.

The bride was met at the altar by the groom who came in with his best man, Mr. Max Pittard.  Standing under a central arch of ferns and magnolias the solemn vows were taken which united them for life.  The impressive ceremony was performed by Rev. A. J. Buford of Ala.

The bride is the third daughter of Mr. R. B. Smith and a young woman whose charming personality has endeared to her scores of friends wherever she is known.

The groom is a sterling young business man of Cartersville and greatly admired by all who knew him.

Mr. and Mrs. Pittard will make their home in Cartersville where their many friends will gladly welcome them.
