Rev. Duncan Mann Reads Service; Wedding in Detroit of Interest Here
Miss Rubie Geneva Nichol, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Nichol of South Bend, Ind., became the bride of Russell Fraser, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Fraser of 1009 Cornwell place, in a charming ceremony which was solemnized at 7:30 Tuesday evening in the chapel of the Michigan League building. Rev. Duncan E. Mann, assistant rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal church, read the service.
Garden flowers and ivory tapers in candelabra were attractive appointments for the service which was performed in the presence of about 50 guests. Miss Beatrice Beal of Ann Arbor sang, "Oh Promise Me", and "I love You Truly" preceding the ceremony and as the bridal party assembled, Miss Marie Pook of Fort Wayne, Ind., played the wedding march from Lohengrin.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose a frock of white organdie with a close fitting bodice and long full skirt. The large cape collar draped over the shoulders to form brief sleeves and the high waistline was marked with a sash of white taffeta. She wore a white organdie and straw hat, white satin slippers, and carried a bouquet of talisman roses and baby's-breath.
Miss Esther Fraser of Ann Arbor, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, wore a becoming beige chiffon frock ornamented with a lace cape collar and a sash of pale rose taffeta. Her slippers and mohair hat were of the same pale rose shade and her bouquet was of pink roses and delphinium.
Mrs. W. R. French of Dexter, sister of the bride, and her only other attendant, was gowned in a peach colored eyelet embroidered frock, with a green taffeta sash ending in a large bow. Her peach colored mohair hat and green slippers completed her ensemble, and her bouquet was similar to that of the maid of honor.
Earl Snyder of Ann Arbor served Mr. Fraser as bestman, and Edwin Haab of this city was an usher.
A reception at the home of the groom's parents on Cornwell place followed the service. Garden flowers graced the three tables from which refreshments were served.
