Brilliant Wedding At Bakerton. The marriage of Mr. James M. Myers, a well-known resident of Shepherdstown, and Miss Martha Lee Flanagan, a greatly respected lady of Bakerton, was solemnized Tuesday night at the Southern Methodist Church in the latter place, and was a most interesting social event. The pretty village church was filled to overflowing with friends and neighbors who had gathered to witness the happy affair, many being present from Shepherdstown and vicinity. The church was handsomely decorated for the occasion, the color scheme being pink and white, with a tasteful arrangement of ferns and foliage and potted plants. At half-past eight o’clock the bridal party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march from Lohengrin, played upon the organ by Mrs. J. D. Billmyer, and the ceremony was performed by Rev. J. H. Haley as the bride and groom stood under a marriage bell suspended from an arch. Miss Anna M. Kopp, of Washington, was maid of honor, and the brides’ maids were Mrs. Walter Flanagan, of Strasburg, Va., and Miss Mary Coleman, of Summit Point. Dr. Hopkins Gibson, of Shepherdstown, was best man, and Messrs. Walter Flanagan and Walter Knott were the groomsmen. The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Alvey Flanagan. The ushers were Messrs. C. D. Carter, Carroll Moler and Russell Moler, Granville Carter and Luther Bowman were ribbon bearers, and Helen Lampe, of Washington was flower girl. The ladies of the bridal party were beautifully attired. The bride looked very attractive in a wedding gown of net over white silk with bridal veil caught with a wreath of forgetmenots, and she carried a shower bouquet of Bride roses. The maid of honor, Miss Kopp, was attired in a lovely dress of Georgette crepe over white silk, with pearl trimming, and carried Killarney roses. Mrs. Flanagan wore a handsome gown of embroidered net over pink satin. Miss Coleman had on a becoming dress of Georgette crepe over pink messaline. It was a handsome and stately bridal procession as it entered and left the church, and everybody observed it with the greatest interest and admiration. Immediately after the wedding the bridal party and the guests to the number of a couple of hundred proceeded to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. O. Bowman, where a reception was held. The happy bride and groom received the congratulations of their friends, and everybody enjoyed the delightful social event. Refreshments were served in entire disregard of the orders of Mr. Hoover, and the guests were all most hospitably entertained. The bride was the recipient of many handsome wedding gifts, including much silver and various useful articles. Mr. and Mrs. Myers will reside in Shepherdstown. We join with their friends in wishing for them great happiness and perfect connubial felicity.
