|Miller-Snider Wedding was a Brilliant Social Event in Havana
Havana, July 2---Of wide social interest was the wedding of Miss Ruth Snider to Mr. F. D. Miller of Jacksonville, last Wednesday evening, uniting as it did two of the most prominent families in East Gadsden.
The ceremony was performed at the First Methodist church by Rev. D. J. Blackwell, using the ring ceremony of their faith, Presbyterian. Palms, ferns and southern smilax formed a background at the altar, while pedestal baskets of shastas, roses and white burning tapers in cathedral candelabras carried out an exquisite color tone of white and yellow.
Mrs. O. W. (Frances) Bell, gowned in pink voile, had charge of the nupital music and gave a most finished piano program. Miss Sarah Harris, in white georgette, sang "Because" and "At Dawning." Mrs. Marvin (Thelma) Miller, in pink crepe, sang the bridal chorus from Lohengrin as the processional and Mendelssohn's was used as the recessional.
Messrs. Pascall, Sapp and Alton Woodbery were ushers; Mr. Marvin Miller was his brother's best man, while Messrs. Clyde Gregory and D. W. Weatherly, of Quincy, and Ernest Shelfer served as groomsmen. Mrs. W. C. Little, of Rock Hill, S. C. the bride's only sister, matron of honor, was handsome in white crepe veiling, white satin and carrying an arm bouquet of American Beauties, as did the maid of honor, Miss Janie Gregory, of Quincy, class mate and cousin of the bride, whose gown of jade crepe was very becoming. Misses Ena Darsey in lavender georgette over yellow, Agnes Gregory, peach crepe, and Sallie Emmett Nicholson in yellow crepe, carrying arm bouquets of shastas were visions of beauty and grace. The tiny flower girls, nieces of the bride and bridegroom, Elizabeth Snider and Sadie Lee Boynton, were adorable in hand-made frocks of blue and pink organdie and they carried French baskets overflowing with white rose petals. William Boynton, small nephew of the bridegroom, handsome in a Fauntleroy suit of white satin, bore the ring in the heart of a white rose.
The bride was given in marriage by her father, J. S. Snider. Never did her dainty blonde beauty show to better advantage than in her trailing robes of flat crepe built over white satin, misty tulle veil, caught with sprays of orange blossoms worn coronet fashion and shower bouquet of roses and valley lillies. Her only ornaments were the bridegroom's gifts, a strand of lovely pearls and a diamond studded bar pin.
Mrs. Miller is the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Snider, sister of Mrs. W. C. Little, of South Carolina, and of Mr. Leon Snider, of this city. She is a graduate of Havana high school of the class of '20 and a B. S. graduate of the Woman's College, class '23. She has taught in the high school here most sucessfully and with her high mental ability she has a fund of practical sense that will make her a most successful help meet. With her own clever fingers she fashioned her trousseau.
Mr. Miller is the youngest son of Mr. D. W. (Daniel Webster) Miller, one of east Gadsden's most prosperous planters and property owners. Mesdames Claude (Leo Miller) Arrington, W. J. (Sadie Miller) Boynton, Murray (Edith Miller) Daniels and Clarence (Mamie Miller) Boynton are his sisters and Mr. Marvin Miller his only brother.
He was educated in the city school here, attended business college in Atlanta, serrved his country during the World War, is a ranking Shriner, Eastern Star, Stock holder in Arrington & Miller's department store and holds a most responsible position with the Atlantic National Bank in Jacksonville.
It is with sincere regret that they are given up, but congratulations and love follow them to their new life and home, where their friends are confident they will be useful citizens, and most helpful in religious, civic and social circles in Jacksonville, as they were here.
Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Snider entertained at a brilliant reception in honor of Mr. and Mrs. D. W. [should be F. D.] Miller immediately following the ceremony. The porch, living and dining rooms were decorated with quantites of fern, shastas and roses.
Mrs. Snider, the bride's mother, was stately in black crepe with touches of white; Mrs Leon Snider was lovely in pink georgette; Mrs. W. J. (Sadie) Boynton, jade voile lace trimmed; Mrs. Claude (Leo) Arrington, taupe crepe; Mrs. Murray (Edith) Daniels, white crepe; Mrs. Clarence (Mamie) Boynton, Harding blue crepe, were in the receiving line. Misses Elsie Gee, white crepe; Dorothy Rollo, lavander voile; Nellie Loyd, honey dew crepe; Eula Shelfer, white organdy; Lucy Gee Lynn, white voile; Janie Hendry, white voile and Edith Womack in white crepe, served cream and cake in the dining room.
Never has there been handsomer or more numerous gifts displayed of crystal, china, rugs, furniture, checks, linens and silver.
Later in the evening Mr. and Mrs. Miller left in their motor car for the seashore, Mrs. Miller traveling in a three-piece model of blue crepe with close fitting hat in same shade. A most attractive apartment awaits their arrival at Jacksonville.
