Carolyn Cole, George Seely
Marry During Home Double-Ring Ceremony

Miss Carolyn Cole, daughter of Buel Cole of Fort Worth and Mrs. Ural McReynold Terry of Ponder, and George Truman Seely, son of Mrs. Roy Edward Seely of Justin, exchanged their wedding vows Saturday at 8 p.m. during a double ring ceremony performed at the home of the bride’s mother by Claude E. Holcomb, minister of the Welch Street Church of Christ.

The improvised altar was decorated with palms, white pom pom asters and candelabra. Mrs. Joseph Allen Sexton of Justin rendered the vocal selections, “Because” and “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Live.”

James Monroe Cole gave his granddaughter in marriage. The bride was attired in a street-length gown of white silk designed with a portrait neckline. Her only jewelry was a single strand of pearls. A Chantilly lace tiara caught her shoulder-length veil of imported illusion and held it in place. She carried a cascade arrangement of gardenias, carnations and stephanotis tied with white silk streamers over a white bible.

The bride’s only attendant was her sister, Miss Wanda Catherine Cole, who wore a dress of green printed silk and a shoulder corsage of white carnations. James Tom Seely of Justin served as best man.

A reception was held in the dinning room of the home immediately following the ceremony. Mrs. Ernest B. Webb presided at the punch service and Miss Wanda Cole cut the double-ring cake which was topped by a bride and bridegroom figurine.

For traveling the bride chose a white linen suit with navy accessories. After a short wedding trip to Oklahoma, the couple will make their home in Roanoke.

Mrs. Seely is a graduate of Ponder High School and Mr. Seely was graduated from Justin High School.
