Ceremony Held In St. Andrew’s Church 450 Attend Reception At Michigan Union Following Service Soft shades of rose pink with white gave a distinction and harmonious beauty, to the simple and formal appointments for the wedding last night of Miss Harriet Heath, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Homer L. Heath of Geddes Ave. and Philip McCallum, son of Sen. and Mrs. George P. McCallum of Woodlawn Ave. The ceremony was performed at 8:30 by Rev. Henry Lewis in St. Andrew’s Episcopal church. White flowers filled the altar vases and at the sides of the altar, tall sprays of huckleberry foliage made a rich background for the many lighted candles in tall candelabra. The foliage formed garlands for the chancel rail and the choir and was arranged in small clusters in the windows where lighted candles glowed. The bridal music was played by Prof. Palmer Christian, organist. The bride’s robe of white Alencon lace had a wide flaring skirt with a long train, and a bodice softly shirred at the high waistline. The long sleeves were slightly full at the top and the sweetheart neckline was caught at the corners by pearl clips, matching the double strand of pearls in the necklace. Miss Heath’s veil of white tulle extended over the train and was held by a coronet of old lace. Her bouquet was of a modified colonial type with white tulle frill and bows, and was made of cream Johanna Hill and shell pink roses, white sweet peas and miniature pink Roman hyacinths. Attendants Frocks Alike The chiffon frocks of the bride’s attendants were alike, and were made in simple lines. Her sister, Barbara, who was maid of honor, wore a Burgundy shade; the bridesmaids, Mrs. Alan S. Foust of Wallingford Rd., for whom Miss Heath was maid of honor, and Mrs. H. Gordon Wood of Geddes Ave., had watermelon pink; and the junior bridesmaid, Phyllis McCallum of Woodlawn Ave., niece of the bridegroom, wore shell pink. The bodices were shirred at the low square neckline and had short puffed sleeves, and softly shirred girdles held the waist above the full skirts. Phyllis, the junior bridesmaid, had a Juliet cap of white hyacinth flowers and carried a frilled nosegay of pink and blue blossoms. The other attendants wore on their heads smart little sprays of flowers that matched their colonial bouquets. The maid of honor carried deep pink roses with blue irises and the bridesmaids had paler flowers. Mrs. Heath wore for her daughter’s wedding a Chantilly lace dress in Delft blue with a short jacket and flaring skirt. Mrs. McCallum’s gown was of pearl gray Victorian lace and net over aquamarine taffeta. Both had pink camellia corsages. Classmate Is Best Man Assisting Mr. McCallum as best man was Thomas T. Oyler of Cincinnati O., a former classmate in the University literary school and a fraternity brother. Mr. Wood and Prof. Foust were ushers with two of Mr. McCallum’s law school classmates, Robert O. Thomas and James Tracy of Detroit. The church was filled with guests for the ceremony and about 450 attended the reception held afterward in the Michigan Union ballrooms. Palms and ferns made a background for the bridal party and parents in the receiving line, and a profusion of spring flowers in pastel shades filled two tall oil jars of soft gray pottery. Arrangements of similar blossoms were used on the two tables, and a garland of foliage and small flowers encircled the punch bowl. Presiding at the tables in turn through the evening were Mrs. Henry E. Riggs, Mrs. Alfred H. White, Mrs. Udo J. Wile, Mrs. R. Bishop Canfield, Mrs. Howard Holmes, Mrs. Earl B. McKinley, Mrs. Robert Angell, Mrs. Ezra Rust, Mrs. Lewis M. Gram, Mrs. A. C. Furstenberg, Mrs. Elmore S. Pettyjohn, Mrs. Thomas K. Burt, Mrs. Frederick A. Coller, Mrs. Waldo M. Abbot, Mrs. Charles L. Jamison, Mrs. Edwin J. Huntington and Mrs. Palmer Christian. Honeymoon In South After the reception, Mrs. McCallum put on for travelling a navy blue gabardine suit with a white lingerie blouse and navy turban with which she wore a short jacket of guanica dyed silver fox. Mr. and Mrs. McCallum will spend about a week in New Orleans and will have an apartment on Jefferson St. on their return. Both are graduates of the University literary college, Mr. McCallum receiving a degree also from the law school. He is employed in the legal department of General Motors Corporation in Detroit. His bride is a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority and of Mortar Board honor society, and Mr. McCallum belongs to Beta Theta fraternity. IMAGE TEXT: BRIDE AT CEREMONY IN ST.
