A pretty church wedding took place Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock in the Lutheran Church, when Miss Evie E. Lewis became the bride of John G. L. Bouchet. Rev. C. Robert Dunlap, pastor of the church, officiated, in the presence of immediate relatives and a few intimate friends of the bride and groom.

Beautiful nuptial music was rendered, Miss Frances Bouchet, sister of the groom, singing “I Love You Truly,” preceding the ceremony. Her accompaniment was played by Miss Sophia Serbian, who also rendered Mendelsshon’s Wedding March as the bridal party entered the church.

The bride who is a charming and attractive young woman, looked exceptionally pretty in a spring suit of navy tricotine, with which she wore a becoming spring hat. She carried a bouquet of bride’s roses. Her maid of honor, Miss Roselyn Bouchet, as a sister of the groom, wore a frock of black charmeuse combined with green and with bead trimming. She carried pink sweet peas. Miss Frances Bouchet was similarly clad in a frock of black and green.

The bride was given in marriage b y her uncle, J.T. Nichols. Morris Walder serves as the best man for Mr. Bouchet.

After the wedding a reception was held at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Nichols on Park Ave., the guests being members of the bridal party, relatives of the bride and groom and members of a club to which the bride belongs. The rooms were prettily decorated for the occasion in pink and white and masses of greenery, with charming effect. A big wedding cake was used as the centerpiece for the table in the dining room where an ice course with cake, in which colors of pink and white were used, was served by the hostess. Mrs. G. C. Rhodes and Mrs. John R. Ford assisted in serving.

The bride’s bouquet was caught by Miss Gertrude Waldscmidt.
