In a candlelight ceremony Saturday at 7 p.m. at the home of Mr. and Mrs. G.A. Seely of Sanger, their daughter, Miss Carolyn Joy Seely, became the bride of Bobby Joe Ready, son of Mr. J.R. Ready of Sanger.

The Rev. S.C. Greer, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Sanger, officiated at the ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her father.

Before an improvised mantle altar of white gladiolas and greenery, the couple were united in marriage. Tall white tapers burned in standards of candelabra.

A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and guests were greeted at the doors by the newlyweds and house party. Mrs. James Ready presided at the cake service and Mrs. S.C. Greer presided at the punch bowl. The three-tiered wedding cake was topped with the bride and groom figurines. The reception rooms were decorated with baskets of white gladioli.

The refreshment table was laid with an Irish linen handmade cloth. The centerpiece was of white candy-tuft and white chrysanthemums. Only the immediate families of the couple were present. Miss Peggy Ready presided at the bride’s guest register.
