Marriage Notice

A copy of this announcement is in the possession of Marie Smith May, Sept.

THE PULASKI CITIZEN, Thursday, 17 February 1910, as reprinted on Wed., May
11, 1966.


    The wedding of Miss Wilburn Dunnivant and Mr. Thurman Smith was
beautifully solemnized on the afternoon of February 17, at 3 o'clock at the
home of the bride's parents near Elkton.

    The impressive ceremony was performed by Rev. T. F. Kellum in the
presence of an interested company of friends and relatives. Miss Virginia
Puckette rendered the nuptial music. The floral decorations of the house were
artistic and effective, pink and green being the color scheme. The stairway
in the hall was especially pretty masked with magnolia foliage, and vines
studded with pink tea roses, but the climax was reached in the parlor where
the woodwork was entrained in ivy, the mantel banked in tea roses and foliage
and from the rose covered wedding bell lined in silver, garlands of ivy and
roses were suspended to the corners of the room. Numerous candles used for
illumination further emphasized the color note.

The bride who entered with the groom, was very attractive in a wisteria
traveling suit with hat to match and carried acliate-laine bouquet of bride's
roses, ferns and valley lilies. She is the pretty and accomplished daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Dunnivant. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. R. C.
Smith of Pisgah and bookkeeper of the Union Bank in Pulaski a promising,
able, and energitic young man. The many beautiful and useful presents
presented exemplified the high esteem and good wishes of their friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Dunnivant were assisted in receiving by Mrs. Edwin Ezell and
Miss Frances Park. Mrs. Ezell and Miss Park wore becoming gowns of pink and
black silk respectively. Mrs. Dunnivant wore black cloth.

After the ceremony and the extended good wishes and congratulations, Mr. and
Mrs. Smith left for the groom's home, where a reception was rendered them.
Mr. Tom Carter of Pulaski and Miss Elise Smith from Martin College
accompanied them. They will be at home in Pulaski after this week.
