The Baptist church was transformed into a bower of beauty last Wednesday night, with white and green in honor of the wedding of two of De Funiak’s most popular young people, Miss Florence, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Monroe Laird and Glen, the eldest son of Mayor A. L. Beach, who plighted their troth in the presence of a crowd that filled the church to to doors in spite of the showers that dropt nearly all the afternoon, Rev. D. P. Slaughter, of the Methodist church, performing the ceremony, assisted by Mr. Catts, the Baptist pastor.

The coming of the bridal party was heralded by the singing of  “O Fair, O Sweet, O Holy”  by Mrs. Harley Cawthon, Miss Annie Burke Landrum playing the accompaniment with violin obligato by Rosby Brown, and the strains of Mendelshon”s wedding march announced their entrance into the church, Miss Beaulah Morris being the bridesmaid, with Mrs. B. P. Morris as matron of honor, and the best man Lancelot  Hughes. The bride’s other attendants were Misses Jimmie Lou Burkes, Mary Vic Bole, Minni McCaskill, Ossie Berry and Ethel Chapman, while G. D. Campbell, Waverly Wadsworth, Ralph Campbell and Angus McKinnon were the groomsmen. Geo. Cawthon and C. A. Landrum were the ushers, little Walton Flournoy the page and Mark Burk and Gracie Flournoy the flower girls.

After the ceremony the immediate bridal party with a few of the more intimate friiends repaired to the Brown House where a luncheon was served before the arrival of the train on which the happy pair left for an extended tour to New Orleans and other points. On their return they will be at home in the Beach cottage on Live Oak avenue which was the gift of the groom’s father.

Resolutions of Respect

Whereas, the all-wise Creator has seen fit to remove from this vale of sorrow to her eternal home, the beloved wife of our brother A. L. Beach.

And, whereas, we knowing the christian character of Mrs. Beach, her kindly spirit, broad charity to all and her wifely devotion to her husband, we feel that our fraternal sympathy should be extended to those suffering this bereavement.

Therefore, be it resolved by Felton Lodge No. 63 Knights of Pythias that we extend to brother Beach and his children, our deepest sympathy, and commend them to the Supreme Chancellor of the universe, who alone can comfort them in their hour of unspeakable sorrow, and fill in their hearts the vacancy caused by the loss of the wife and mother.

Be further resolved, that a page in our minutes suitably inscribed, be dedicated to her memory, and that a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to brother Beach, and further, that these resolutions be printed in the local papers and the Florida Pythian.

R. W. Storrs, B. P. Morris, H. Thornber, Committee.
