>From its mountain heights, the handsome home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Woodall,
near Woodland, looked down upon a goodly company of expectant friends,
assembling on Wednesday, to witness the wedding of the lovely daughter of the
household, Miss Sallie Cornelia to Mr. Charles Matthews.

The entire place in its fragrance of roses and great trees hanging with
luscious fruit seemed to herald the gladsome occasion. Bowls and vases of
choicest roses breathed sweetest incense. Miss Mattie Woodall, a cousin of the
bride played softly, tenderly throughout the ceremony, as the strains of
Mendelsohn’s triumphant Wedding March chimed upon the glorious morning
stillness, the bridal party entered, Mr. John Woodall and Miss Berta Mae
Matthews then came the bride and groom. They stood within an arch of smilax,
above which was suspended the letter “M” and behind them was a bank of palms
and ferns. While Rev. J.G. Harrison was reading the impressive ceremony, Miss
Woodall played “Hearts and Flowers”. The bride is the lovely young daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Woodall and is a young lady of rare personal chasms and
superior business ability. She was exquisitely dainty and charming in a gown
of cream net and carried a large bouquet of Bride’s roses. Mr. Matthews, the
handsome young groom is an excellent young man, whose record has always been
noble and true. He can wear “without abuse the grand old name of Gentleman.”
He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Matthews.

The bride’s going-away gown was an elegant coat suit of blue cloth.

The maid of honor Miss Berta Mae Matthews wore a blue crepe de chine and
carried a bouquet of American Beauty roses.

The remembrances were costly and varied.

The attractive home nest already prepared, will be furnished throughout with
every convenience and luxury. Besides furniture and dining room fixtures there
will be every ornament in cut-glass, silver and china with which to adorn.
Their home will be a place with outward beauty grand, but with such a queen of
hear and home, it will be where

”A home of peace and love,
God showers His blessings from above.”

The happy couple left over the AB&A for Brunswick and St. Simons. After the
middle of September they will at “at home” to their friends at Woodland.
