By The Auto Route
Judge Parish officiated at a (wedding) that had more than the usual spice of romance in it, even for Gretna Green Affairs.

Coy C. McKinnon, a son of Hon. D. L. McKinnon, of Marianna, was the groom, and Miss Willie Lee Kilpatrick, of the same place was the bride. On their arrival here on the evening train an auto was secured, and with Judge Parish as a passenger a ride was taken around the lake, and during the trip the words were spoken that made them man and wife. That road is not a part of the official honeymoon route to the Gulf, but De Funiak is on the way.

Among the prettiest of the early June weddings was that of Miss Sadie Rowland Donalson to Mr. Henry v. d. Hart Roelofs, which occurred at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. S. E. Donalson, on Tuesday evening June seventh at Point Donalson, Parker, Florida, on St. Andrews Bay, in the presence of a few relatives and friends.

The large front parlor was beautifully decorated in green white and pink, and oleanders were never more beautifully blended making one glad that oleanders bloom for June brides. The large lower hall and dining room carried the color scheme in a charming way.

The bride wore an exquisite gown of soft white satin fashioned in draped effect with trimmings of spangled net with veil, her only ornament being a string of pearls the gift of the groom’s mother and carried a bouquet of roses and ferns.

She was attended by Miss Grace Spencer of Wewahitchka, Fla., as maid of honor, and Miss Katherine Martin of Parker, and Miss Katherine Gillis of DeFuniak Springs, Fla., as bridesmaids, the color scheme being carried out in their costumes and arm bouquets.

Many beautiful presents were received attesting to the popularity of the young couple.

Delicious refreshments were served after the ceremony, and following the reception amid showers of rice and good wishes the wedded pair left for St. Andrews, and Wednesday morning took the train for Marianna. There Mr. Roelofs is in charge of the survey for the Jarratt Lumber Company’s Railroad.

Their many friends wish them “Bon voyage” thru life.
