SEELY – TAYLOR VOWS EXCHANGED

Bride’s Brother Performs Double Ring Ceremony at M.E. Church

Miss Marian Taylor; daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor 2311 Fifth street and Jack F. Seely, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Seely of West Riverside were united in marriage Sunday afternoon at 4 o’clock. An impressive double ring ceremony was solemnized in the First Methodist Episcopal church by Rev. Norman W. Taylor of Gilbert, Ariz., brother of the bride, and Dr. B. Dudley Snudden, pastor. The church was beautifully decorated with spring blossoms, palms and ferns, Clifford Taylor, another brother of the bride, lighted the white tapers which were held in two tall candelabras at either side of the altar.

Just before the ceremony Miss Althea Wright of Los Angeles, a cousin, sang “I Love You Truly,” “O Promise Me” and “Because,” accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Manta Love North, who also played the Lohengrin and Mendelssohn wedding marches.

Miss Elsie Taylor, sister of the bride, attended her as maid of honor, wearing a gown of peach lace with which she carried a bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas, tied with a pink tulle bow. Little Patricia Ruth Blaylock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Blaylock of Los Angeles, wearing a dainty frock of pale blue organdy, carried a basket of pink rose petals which she scattered in the bride’s path.

Given in marriage by her father, the young bride was attractive in her wedding gown of ivory satin, made princess style with bell sleeves. Her veil of net was caught to her head in an off-the face cap and wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of bride’s rosebuds, lilies of the valley and white sweet peas.

James Seely served his brother as best man and the ushers were Neil Beymer and Dean Crispin.

The bride’s mother wore a green ensemble, with black accessories, and the bridegroom’s mother chose a gown of black crepe and lace with marching accessories. Both had corsages of gardenias.

The bride, who has been employed at the Riverside Title company for the past three years, attended the local high school and junior college. Mr. Seely attended the high school and at present is employed by the Highgrove Mutual Citrus association.
