The home of Mrs. B. Odom, North Clay Street, Ennis, was the scene of a quiet home wedding Wed. Nov. 28, 1908 when her daughter Bertie Mae, and Bryant Helton were joined in Holy Wedlock. The parlor and reception hall were tastefully decorated with palms, ferns and white chrysanthemums. At 7:30 the bridal party took their places under a beautiful wedding bell from which festooned tiny white ribbons and were united in marriage by Rev. H. R Ford. The ribbons on the wedding bell were then pulled and bride and groom were showered with rice. The bride wore a gown of sheer white silk with dainty lace trimmings and  the groom wore the conventional black. The bride was reared in Ennis and the groom is a successful young planter - both have many friends here.

Among relatives present were: Mr. W. W. Linville of Wichita Falls, Allen J. Owens of Ft. Worth, Mr. and Mrs. Bud Owens of Rankin and Mrs. J. H. Owens and children of Telico.

The happy couple were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents. They will be at home to their friends until January 1st at 612 N. Clay St. in Ennis.
