The guests, numbering about 65, who were invited to a surprise party last night in the Grand Rapids room of the Michigan League, in honor of Miss Ruth Arlene Pence of Lawrence St., found that the surprise had been arranged for them rather than for the hostess, and that the occasion was the marriage of Miss Pence and Glen E. Mills of Ann Arbor, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Mills of Madison, S. D.
At 9:30, at the conclusion of a half-hour musicale, the guests were bidden to the chapel of the League to find the bridal party assembled before the chancel rail, where baskets of white peonies stood against a background of palms and tall standards holding lighted white tapers.
Lemon Reads Service
Dr. William P. Lemon, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, read the service. Miss Pence, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Pence, 812 Lawrence St., chose for her wedding gown a princess model of coral Chantilly lace distinguished by a high, Queen Anne collar and the simple trimming of a row of tiny satin buttons extending down the front from the V-shaped neckline to the hem of the full skirt.
Her flowers were a corsage of orchids and lilies of the valley, and she carried her great great grandmother’s wedding hankerchief of hand-made hairpin lace. Her Cinderella sandals were of pastel shades.
Miss Betty Jean Pence was her sister’s bridesmaid and only attendant. She wore a triple sheer frock of powder blue, accented by a rhinestone and sapphire clip at the high, draped neckline, and a cluster of rosebuds in her hair.
Walter Jones of St. Clair, a former roommate of Mr. Mills, assisted him as best man.
For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Pence chose a flowered chiffon and her flowers were a corsage of gardenias.
Reception Follows
A reception in the Grand Rapids room followed the ceremony. The table was laid with an ivory lace cloth centered with the bride’s cake which was flanked by pink tapers in silver holders and by bowls of roses. Mrs. Marion Lowmaster of Ann Arbor and Mrs. H. M. Morris of Pontiac poured.
Mr. and Mrs. Mills left for a short motor trip, the latter wearing a turquoise blue knitted suit with navy blue accessories. They will be home after June 12 at 421 S. Division St.
The bride, who is affiliated with Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, is a graduate of the University in the class of 1931. Mr. Mills received a master’s degree from the University, and is a teacher of Spanish and English in the Ann Arbor High School.
