Courson + Gregory COURSON - GREGORY

Extreme simplicity marked the quiet wedding of Miss Mattie Courson, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Bryant Courson to Mr. Homer F. Gregory of Macon, which took place Thursday afternoon at 5:30 at the home of the bride in West Green.
The home was attractively decorated with green ferns and quantities of brides roses. Simple decorations marked the loveliness of the setting for the altar which was improvised in the parlor, the background was a number of ferns, at each side of the altar was placed floor vases filled with white and pink roses. Lighted tapers placed in candelabras shed their mellow glow over the bride and groom who entered the parlor together, and standing before the altar were united in holy wedlock by Jas. H. Green.
Only a few close friends and her immediate family witnessed the ceremony.
The bride was lovely in a china blue canton crepe dress with accessories of tan. She is from a very prominent and one of the oldest families in Coffee county and was entertained at prenuptial affairs by Mrs. Jas. H. Green, Mrs. L. Leston Denton, Mrs. J. Samuel Young and Mrs. N. S. Boyd.
They left on the night train for Macon where they will make their home.
