Interesting Notice of Coming Wedding in Atlanta News.

The marriage of Miss Lucy Wister Jones, of Cartersville, to Mr. John C. Simpson, of Darlington, S. C., which is to be solemnized at the First Methodist church in Cartersville on April 30th, will be one of universal interest throughout the state.

Miss Jones is the second daughter of Rev. J. J. Jones.  She is an attractive brunette and her popularity has become proverbial.  Miss Jones has visited in almost every town of the state, and wherever she has gone she has always been called a “visiting belle.”

The ceremony will take [place] at 5 o’clock in the afternoon and will be performed by the uncle of the bride, Rev. Sam P. Jones.   It is to be another of the green and white weddings which are so fashionable this season, and the arrangements are pretty and unique.

The attendants are to be Miss Frances Evelyn Jones, the bride’s sister, maid of honor; Miss Laura Jones, first bride’s maid; and the bridesmaids will be Miss Lucille Wright of Lawrence, S. C.; Miss Allie O’Neill, of Dalton, Ga.; Miss Rosa Aubrey, Miss Estelle Calhoun, Miss Ora Best, Miss Mayme Hudgins, Miss Ida Lu Milam and Miss Mary Lu Wikle, of Cartersville, Ga.  The groom’s brother, Mr. Richard W. Simpson, will be best man, and the ushers will be Messrs. Dock Cunyus, Albert Strickland, Benham Jones and Sam P. Jones, Jr.

Miss Jones will be married in a handsome going-away gown in one of the light shades of mauve, with touches of old rose, and her bouquet will be orange blossoms and lilies of the valley.  An old rose turban will complete this stylish costume.  The maid of honor will be lovelier than usual in white crepe de chine, lace trimmed; and carry a shower bouquet of bride’s roses and will wear a big black hat.  First bride’s maid will wear white point d’esprit over taffeta and a big black hat, trimmed in ostrich plumes, and carry a shower bouquet of white carnations.  The bridesmaids will wear white organdie over green taffeta, with black hats and carry bouquets of white carnations.

The bridal party will enter the church to the strains of Tannhauser’s wedding chorus, which will be sung by a quartet composed of Messrs. Joe and John Calhoun, Paul Akin and Tom Milner.

During the ceremony Mrs. A. B. Cunyus, sister of the bride, will sing “Oh Promise Me.”  Mrs. Geo. H. Aubrey will preside at the organ, and as the wedding party is passing out, will play Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.

Immediately after the ceremony the newly married couple, with the best wishes of the entire assemblage of friends, who will come from every part of the state, will leave for their future home in Darlington, S. C.

Mr. Simpson is master mechanic of the prosperous cotton mills of Darlington, S. C.  The bride is generally popular and greatly beloved and it is with regret that we see her leave us for another state.  A thousand good wishes go with her to her new home.
