Despite the inclemency of the weather a large number of guests gathered at the suburban home of Mrs. Margaret Speir on the afternoon of January twenty fourth, to witness the marriage of her daughter, Malinda, to Mr. Scott L. Tarplee of Atlanta.  The home was beautifully decorated with bamboo, jonquils and handsome potted plants.

At 4:30 o’clock Mrs. John E. Barnard as matron of honor and Miss Ella Speir, maid of honor, entered to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march.  The bridesmaid Miss Alma Speir entered nest upon the arm of Mr. Will Galt Speir, the brother of the bride.  These were followed by the bride and groom.  The ceremony, performed by Rev. John E. Barnard, was simple and impressive.  The bride was beautiful in a going away gown of brown silk voile, over black and white plaid taffeta.  The blouse worn over this was of handsome Mexican lace over blue silk and she carried bride’s roses.  After the ceremony, the bride tossed this bouquet high and it fell among her attendants, Miss Galt making the lucky catch.

Dainty refreshments, consisting of Nunnally’s Neapolitan cream, and cakes were served.  One unique feature of this wedding was a cake baked in the star shaped pan used in baking some of the cakes at the marriage of Senator and Mrs. Joseph E. Brown.

Mrs. Tarplee was one of Cartersville’s most lovable young girls.  Mr. Tarplee is one of Atlanta’s most prominent business men.  They left immediately for the north, to be gone ten days

Among the out of town guests were Mr. Will Galt and two daughters, Misses Martha and Francis.  Miss Malinda Galt, Canton, Mrs. J. W. L. Brown and Miss Pauline Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Puckett, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Speir and daughter, Miss Alma, Dr. and Mrs. E. L. Connally. Atlanta; Mrs. J. J. Conner, Rev. A. J. Morgan, Acworth, Mr. Joel Galt, Marietta.
