Carpenter – Seely

Louis Roe Carpenter, president of the Monroe National Bank, and Miss Julia Youngs Seely, daughter of Mrs. Ruth Davis Seely, of Chester, were united in marriage Wednesday noon at the home of the bride, by Rev. George M. McAllister, pastor of the Chester Presbyterian Church, of which the bridge is a member. The ring service was used, but the couple were unattended.

The house was quite simply, but very effectively adorned with oak leaves and daisies.

The young couple met and conversed with their friends and greatly enjoyed the company of their guests until noon, when they stepped to one corner of the parlor, where they were made man and wife. There were some thirty-five friends present.

The bride wore a gown of embroidered white net and carried white roses. Her traveling suit was of old blue.

After the tendering of congratulations, a wedding breakfast was served and then, at 3 p.m., Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter left for Poughkeepsie, accompanied, in another car, by some of their friends to see them safely off. They will proceeded through the Great Lakes to Duluth, Minn., whence they will return east by way of the St. Lawrence river and lakes Champlain and George. The summer will be passes in Chester, whence they will remove to Monroe, where Mr. Carpenter has plans drawn for a new residence to be ready for occupancy by December.

This wedding unites two of the oldest and best known of Orange county families, and the many friends of both unite in congratulations and best wishes. There were many relatives present and they all bespoke future happiness and prosperity for the pair.

Among those present at the nuptials were Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Carpenter, Mr. and Mrs. Bayard Carpenter, Miss Mary Cocks and Harry Bull of Monroe, Mr. and Mrs. Fred B. Seely, Urbana, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert S. Carpenter and Miss Broadbent, of Scranton, Pa.; Mrs. Jennie G. Cross, Mt. Vernon; Miss Boyd and Miss Emma Boyd, Brooklyn; Miss Gertrude Sly, New York city; Miss Bella Graham, Pompton Plains, N.J.; Mr. and Mrs. Morris W. Williams, Frankfort; Miss Adelaide Grier, Goshen; Miss Leila Mills, Middletown.

The young folks have the best wishes of all who known them and those will follow them as they establish a home of their own.
