MRS. ROY MERYL SCHAIRER A ceremony of simple appointments took place at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening in Bethlehem Evangelical church, at which the marriage vows were spoken by Miss Edith Maree Walz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Walz, 803 Dewey Ave., and Roy Meryl Schairer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schairer, 105 Revena Blvd. Palms and ferns banked the altar with white gladioli and other fall flowers in white, supplemented by floor candelabra holding white tapers alternating with clusters of white roses. Rev. Theodore R. Schmale, pastor of the church, read the ceremony. Arthur Jahnke, soloist, with Prof. T. H. Hildebrandt, organist, sang "Beloved, It Is Morn," by Florence Aylward, and "I Love You Truly," by Carrie Jacobs Bond. Miss Walz, who was given in marriage by her father, was a charming bride in her Empire gown of white satin, made in simple lines, with a cowl drapery close at the throat, dolman sleeves fitted below the elbow and continuing to a point over the hand. The straight lines of the skirt extended to a short train, over which the long veil of tulle fell, ending in scallops formed by deep bands of lace. Two bands of orange blossoms across her head, held the veil, which fell from a shirring and ruche across the back of her head. Her flowers were Johanna Hill roses and swansonia arranged in a shower bouquet. Her sister, Mrs. Fred A. Weber, the former Marguerite Walz at whose wedding last year the bride served as bridesmaid, attended as matron of honor. She wore a chiffon velvet model of heliotrope, made with a bodice draped from shirrings below the high yoke, draped sleeves, extending to just below the elbow and slit to the shoulder. Her close turban of black sequins had a stiff veil of tulle serving as a brim and other accessories were black, and her flowers Talisman roses and sweet peas. Harold Staebler, cousin of the bridegroom, was best man, and the ushers were Lawrence A. Walz and Fred A. Weber. Mrs. Walz chose for her daughter's wedding, a rust flat crepe with a rever faced with paisley, with which she wore brown accessories and shoulder gardenias. Mrs. Schairer, mother of the bridegroom, wore a crepe frock of French claret shade, with matching hat and gardenias as a shoulder corsage. Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the parish hall and refreshments were served, including a bride's cake with tall tapers at either side, and groom's cakes at the ends of the table. Assisting at the table were Miss Segried Ball and Miss Edna Zahn. For travelling, Mrs. Schairer wore a wrap-around rust crepe with matching collar and cuffs of velvet, and turban and other accessories in brown. After a short trip, Mr. and Mrs. Schairer will return here to be at home after Nov. 1 at 209 North Ingalls St. Among the parties at which the bride has been honored, was a bridge and shower given last Wednesday by Mrs. Harold Staebler, and a bridge and miscellaneous shower with presentation of a number of wedding gifts in addition, on Friday evening at the home of Miss Malloy on East Catherine St. Guests from out of the city attending the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Simon Schairer, Norman Schairer, Miss Mattie Schairer, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Coyne and Miss Frieda Soell of Detroit; Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Staebler of Melvindale; Mr. and Mrs. Harold Walz, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Walz, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Walz, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Walz, Mr. and Mrs. William Horning, Lowell Walz and Mr. and Mrs. John Horning, all of Grass Lake; Mrs. Catherine Walz, Mr. and Mrs. William Jacobs, Miss Wilma Walz, Mr. and Mrs. Harley Loveland and Mr. and Mrs. Ray Dunham of Jackson; Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Harvey of Royal Oak, Mr. and Mrs. George Mason of Brighton and Mr. and Mrs. James McIntosh of Saline.
