JUNE KERN NOW MRS. JENNINGS
New Year’s Night Wedding Solemnized
A very pretty wedding was solemnized New Year’s night at 8 o’clock at the First Baptist Church when Miss June Kern became the bride of George Jennings. Rev. T. P. Potter, pastor of the church, performed the single ring ceremony.
The church was beautifully decorated with evergreen and lighted by tall tapers.
Preceding the ceremony Ashton Coppock, cousin of the groom, sang “O Promise Me,” and “I Love Your Truly.” He was accompanied at the piano by Miss Lois Kern, sister of the bride.
To the strains of Handel’s Largo and Lohengrin’s Wedding March, the bridal party entered the church. The bride wore an ankle length gown of white satin, her veil in cap effect and other accessories were also in white. She carried a bridal bouquet of yellow chrysanthemums and maiden hair fern. She was attended by her sister, Miss Helen Kern, who wore a pale yellow ankle length dress with yellow and white accessories. Her bouquet was also of chrysanthemums and ferns. The groom and his best man, his cousin, Clyde Coppock, wore dark suits.
John Jennings and William Jennings, brothers of the groom, acted as ushers.
Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held in the church parlors for relatives of the bride and groom. The tables were attractively decorated in yellow and green, the bride’s chosen colors.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Kern. She graduated from the LeMars high school and for the last year and a half has been employed at the Plymouth County Credit Bureau. The groom is the nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Jennings and has been engaged with his uncle in farming.
LET’S GET MARRIED.
George James Jennings, 21, LeMars, and Mary June Kern, 20, LeMars.
