The ceremony was beautifully performed under a large floral horse hose, by the
Rev. Peter McIntyre, in a most impressive manner. The decorations were profuse,
lovely and artistic, being blended in exquisite taste, and so arranged as to lend
grace, beauty and elegance to the brilliant scene.
The wedding march was grandly rendered by Professor Cameron(?) Seartin, and
rang sweetly out from the organ, while the handsome ushers, Mr. B.B. Witherinton
and Mr. Shaw Hines, followed by Mr. Robert Hill and Mr. Sion(?) Baney(?), marched
down the aisle, bearing the ribbons.
The attendants then came in as follows: Mr. Walker Taylor and Miss Eliza Pittman;
Mr. Archie McBryde and Miss Frankie Pass; Mr. John K. Williams and Miss Anna
Lewis; Mr. Willie Hill and Miss Dale Shaw; Mr. H_(?). J. Faison and Miss Annie

Hicks; Mr. W. M. Faison and Miss Bessie Isler; Mr. Frank Faison and Miss Kate
Then entered the groom with his best man, Mr. A. M. Fairley, followed by the bride,
leaning on the arm of her sister, Miss Annie Hicks, the dress was of pure white satin,
with lace, demi-train veil and natural orange blossoms. She carried in her hand a
beautiful bouquet of White Camellias, Azaleas and Lillies of the Valley. After the
solemn words had been spoken that under them man and wife, the bridal party passed
from the church to the inspiring strains of the beautiful march.
An elegant reception such as Duplin folks know how to give, was held at the home of the
bride, Capt. L. T. Hicks, and after much feasting, merry-making and well-wishing, the
happy pair took the 11:30 train for a tour North. Miss Hicks is one of North Carolina’s
bells and is much admired.
She has numerous friends to whom she has endeared herself by her many charms and
Mr. Williams is too well and favorably known to need any words of commendation.
The best wishes of a host of friends go with them, upon this, their voyage of love.
