A Pretty Wedding Last Wednesday Night [February 15, 1911]
DeFuniak weddings are always pretty, and to say that one is prettier than an other, is hard to do and tell the truth, but that of Miss Gussie McCaskill and William Olin Campbell which was solemnized at the Presbyterian church last Wednesday night, was at least one of the prettiest, and handsome decorations, brilliant illuminations, the large crowd of relatives and guests altogether made it an occasion long to be remembered.
An organ prelude by Mrs. Ecker announced the coming of the bridal party, and this was followed by a solo by Miss Lucile Jordan, and the party entered to the strains of Mendelshon’s wedding march, led by the ushers, Walter McLeod, W. Ide Stinson, W. D. C. Campbell and Gillis Douglass, the groomsmen being H. L. Cawthon, Dudley McCaskill and J. L. McKinnon Jr., while the bridesmaids were Misses Annie Campbell, Mary Campbell, Erma Ecker, the maid of honor was Miss Marie Lewis and the best man J. H. Morrison.
The pretty little flower girls were Mary Hope Cawthon and Emma Belle McKinnon while little Angeline McCaskill bore the ring on a dainty satin cushion.
The charming bride attractively gowned in brocaded satin trimmed in lace and pearls, with veil caught with orange blossoms and carried a shower bouquet of white roses, entered on the arm of her father and was met at the altar where the ceremony was impressively performed by Rev. Lynn R. Walker, the pastor.
The happy pair left on the evening train for a trip to New Orleans and on their return will occupy a cozy cottage on the east side of the lake.
