The Highway Pentecostal Holiness Church of Blaney was the scene of the Lovely wedding of Miss Marian Jeanette Monroe, daughter of Mrs. Gillyard Percival Monroe and the late Mr. Monroe of Blaney, and Charles Edwin Brown, son of Mrs. Margaret B. Brown and the late N. G. Brown of Columbia, at 6 p.m. Oct. 6. The Rev. Marvin O. Cannon officiated at the double-ring rites.
The wedding music was presented by Mrs. James B. Brady, organist, and Miss Linda Rawl, soloist.
The bride, given in marriage by her brother, Franklin Delano Monroe, was lovely in her wedding gown of bouquet taffeta and re-embroidered Alencon lace. The fitted bodice had a bateau neckline outlined in Alencon lace, and long sleeves ending in points over the hands. The semi-belle skirt featured self cording, re-embroidered Alencon lace motifs topped with a tiny self bow and detachable train topped with a bow. Her veil of imported bridal illusion fell from a crown of taffeta trimmed with pearls. The bride carried a white orchid showered with carnations. Her only ornament was a necklace belonging to her mother.
Miss Gladys Cannon of Laurinburg, North Carolina, maid of honor, wore a street-length dress of willow green peau satin. Her matching headpiece was a flowered disc featuring lily of the valley and a circular face veil. She carried a nosegay of yellow carnations and chrysanthemums.
Bridesmaids were Miss Christine Cannon of Laurinburg, North Carolina, Miss Beverly Bowen and Miss Glenda Bowen, nieces of the bride, both of Columbia. They wore dresses identical to that of the maid of honor.
Larry Douglas Amick served as best man. Groomsmen were Jimmy Langford, Jackie Eley, George Wilson, Randall Phillips, all of Columbia, and Johnny Monroe, brother of the bride, of Blaney.
After the ceremony, the bride’s mother entertained with a reception at the church.
Following the reception, the couple left for a wedding trip to Miami Beach, Fla. They will make their home on Duncan Street in Columbia.
