Harry Pickney Miller - Lillian Hallwood
Dayton Daily Journal - January 9, 1904, Page 5

Quite an important wedding of the week was the marriage, Tuesday evening, of Miss Lillian Hallwood and Harry Pickney Miller of Dayton, which was solemnized at St. Pal's church at 7:30 o'clock according to the ritual of the Episcopal church, Rev. John Hewitt officiating.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry S. Hallwood and the groom is of an old southern family, being a member of the St. Cecelia patriotic order, which numbers among its members a select few of the southern aristocracy.

The Hallwoods have since their residence in Columbus been prominent in the best social circles, and as the bride is a very attractive girl, it was fitting that her wedding should be the initial one celebrated at St. Paul's, the beautiful new edifice on East Broad street.

It was in the presence of a distinguished audience that the bride and groom made their covenant, the bride wearing a beautiful gown of chiffon over messanine silk, with a deep yoke of real lace studded with pearls and lace trimmings on the skirt. She wore a tulle veil caught with orange blossoms, and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley. Her only ornament was a sunburst brooch of diamonds and pearls, the gift of the groom.

The bridesmaids wore pretty gowns of pink chiffon, all exactly alike, made in princess style, with shirred skirts and yokes. They carried large bouquets of pink roses, tied with tulle, and looked very graceful.

The matron of honor, Mrs. William Alexander Bargar, wore her wedding gown, and carried a bouquet like the bridesmaids.

The procession entered in this order: First, the ushers, James Daniels of Boston, Robert Kelly of Wisconsin, William Alexander Bargar of this city, Campbell Miller of South Carolina, Thomas Hallwood and David Taylor; then the two bridesmaids, Miss Louise Krauss and Miss Beatrix Hallwood, then the matron of honor, Mrs. Bargar; the maid of honor, Miss Helen Hallwood, alone, and last the bride, on the arm of her father.

They were met at the altar by Mr. Miller and his best man, George Miller, of South Carolina.

It was a pink and white wedding, this scheme being carried out at the church, where the altar was decorated with bouquets of carnations, and lighted candles.

At the Hallwood home on Franklin avenue, dozens of pink and white carnations were used to decorate the house, the dining room being especially pretty with the mantles banked with smilax, ferns and these pretty blossoms.

After September the first, Mr. and Mrs. Miller will be at home in Dayton.


Walter G. Mitchell - Charlotte Weidman
Dayton Journal - August 29, 1902, Page 5

The marriage of Miss Charlotte Weidman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Weidman of Nassau street to Mr. Walter G. Mitchell was celebrated Thursday afternoon, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. U. S. Davis of Linden avenue Baptist church at the home of the bride's parents. Only the immediate relatives were present and after a luncheon the happy pair amid showers of good wishes left for a ten days' trip to the lakes. Upon their return they will be at home at 71 Garfield street.

The bridal pair received many handsome presents from relatives and friends and were given an old fashioned tinpanning by some of their friends before their departure on their wedding trip.


Arthur K. Moehlman - Madeline Weismantle
Dayton Daily News - April 29, 1913, Page 5

Chas. W. Moehlman, father of the prospective groom, had to be appointed guardian of Miss Madeline Weismantle, 17, of 317 Sherman street, before the young woman was allowed to sign her name to an application blank at the marriage license bureau Tuesday morning. The application for a marriage license was made by Arthur K. Moehlman, 21, assembler, of 23 Negley Place, but Deputy Clerk Clarence Spring scowled when the young woman was found to be under age, and it was not until father-in-law graciously consented to act as guardian that the license was issued.


Alfred William Moore - Louise Marshall Keach
Dayton Daily News - April 29, 1913, Page 5

Announcements have been received in Dayton as follows: Rev. and Mrs. Edwin P. Keach announce the marriage of their daughter, Louise Marshall, and Rev. Alfred William Moore on Wednesday at the twenty-third of April, one thousand nine hundred and thirteen, Allahabab, India. At home after May the first, Etah, U.P. India. The groom has been doing missionary work in the far east for the past year and more and his marriage is a climax of a romance which had its beginning in that country, where the bride was also engaged in the mission fields. Just before this departure to foreign lands the groom was a guest in this city, and on two different occasions was a speaker at Memorial Presbyterian church, where he won distinct favor with his audiences.
