A September Wedding.

Invitations were issued last week by Mrs. Teccoa Elizabeth Collins to the wedding of her daughter, Ella Teccoa, to Mr. Joseph Eugene Wardlaw, of Rome.

The nuptials which will be celebrated at nine o’clock on the evening of the fifteenth at the residence of the bride’s mother will be characterized by simplicity and beauty in every detail.

Miss Collins, who is one of Cartersville’s prettiest girls, will be gowned in white organdie over a white satin slip and will carry an armful of bride roses. Arrayed in this appropriate gown she will appear what she really will be—a dainty, girlish bride. The parlor in which the ceremony is to be performed will be decorated in roses and smilax, and the bridal couple will stand immediately in front of the mantel draped in white and green, while the words which unite them for life are being spoken by Rev. B. P. Allen. The wedding march will be rendered by Mrs. O. L. Garwood, of Atlanta.

After the ceremony an informal reception will be held. The dining room will be in white and pink; the bride’s table is to have a center piece of La France roses with pink mulle suspended from the chandelier. The color will be carried out in the candles and ices and otherwise in the delicious menu.

The bride and groom will depart Friday for their future home, Rome. They will reside on Avenue A, 4th ward. Miss Collins is a graduate of West End Institute, having finished there only a year ago. Although quite young, she has been very popular socially in Cartersville and is considered one of our handsomest and most attractive girls. She will be greatly missed by hosts of friends. Mr. Wardlaw occupies the position of bookkeeper for the large dry goods firm of Bass Bros., in Rome, and is a young man of sterling business qualities.

A bright future is predicted for this young couple and congratulations are being showered upon them from all sides.
