Miss Rhuby Jean Kline Wed to Leslie Seely, Jr., Saturday in First Baptist Church

Mr. and Mrs. Leslie B. Leslie B. Seely, Jr., whose marriage took place Saturday at 3 p.m. in the First Baptist church, are now en route to Wenonah, N.J., where they will make their home.

The Rev. L.B. Moseley and the Rev. George L. Collins officiated at the wedding of the former Miss Rhuby Jean Kline, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Stanley Kline, 4205 Bagley Parkway, and the son of the L.B. Seelys of Germantown, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia.

Miss Kline, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white satin gown with a round neckline, fitted bodice, long pointed sleeves, and a full skirt that swept into a court train. The net yoke of the bodice was edged in lace at the front and back. A coronet of seed pearls held the bride’s fingertip tulle veil. She carried a cascade bouquet of gardenias.

Cerise Velveteen

As her sister’s maid of honor, Miss Joan Kline wore a cerise velveteen gown with a wide, square neckline, long sleeves that ended in points over the hands, a fitted torso bodice, and a full skirt. Her velveteen calot matched her gown, and she carried a sheaf of white carnations. Identical velveteen gowns and caps in a rich shade of violet were worn by the bridesmaids, Miss Joan Waring, Oak Park, Ill., Miss Gladys Runyan, Des Plaines, Ill., and Miss Lucille Monroe, Madison. Their flowers were white carnations.

Owen Carter of Madison served as best man for Mr. Seely. The guests were ushered to their places by Philip Deming and Sam Naistad, Madison, and Jack Naffziger, Rockford, Ill., a cousin of the bride.

Mrs. Kline was attired in a royal purple crepe gown with a hat to match, while Mrs. Seely, the bridegroom’s mother, chose a fuchsia gown and hat. Both had corsages of purple-lipped orchids.

150 at Reception

Miss Jean Sachtjen and Miss Bette Burdick, Madison, poured at the reception for 150 guests held in the church parlors after the ceremony. A sic-tiered wedding cake formed the centerpiece on the table.

For her going-away ensemble, the bride wore a black and white dress with accessories to match and a beige wool coat with a wolf collar. Mr. and Mrs. Seely will make their home at 210 S. Princeton ave. in Wenonah.

The bride attended Cornell college, Mr. Vernon, Ia., and was graduated this month from the University of Wisconsin. Her husband received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Haverford college, Haverford, Pa., and received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin last July. He is now employed as a research chemist for the du Pont Co.
