Pair Repeat Vows in Friday Ceremony
The sanctuary of Grace Presbyterian Church was the setting for the 7:30 PM, Friday, September 5, 1969, wedding of Miss Margaret Lynn Kirkpatrick and Roger Mac Timberlake. Dr. David Uhl and the Rev. Edgar Hubbard officiated at the double ring ceremony.
Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Jack H. Kirkpatrick of Kingston and Mr. and Mrs. Alton M. Timberlake, 1311 Ro... Street.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a formal length white crepe gown accented with a wedding ring lace collar and long petal point sleeves. Her full detachable chapel train was attached to a lace overly at the shoulder line.
Her elbow-length four tiered illusion veil was held by a headpiece of white lace surrounded by seed pearls. She carried a traditional cascade of Mystery chrysanthemums centered by a white Cattleya orchid accented with ivy leaves.
Mrs. Jerry Dunn served her sister as matron of honor. She wore a pastel blue crepe floor length gown. The bridesmaids, Mrs. Jerry Standlee, Mrs. Ron Driggers, and Miss Thelma Hancock, wore similar gowns in a deeper shade of blue.
Katrina Horn, flower girl, wore a gown identical to those of the bridesmaids.
Fred Hale of Celeste was best man, while groomsmen were Jerry Dunn of Greenville, brother-in-law of the bride; Alton Timberlake, Jr., of Richardson, brother of the groom; and John Davis of Greenville. Ushers were Terry Money, cousin of the groom, Jeff Parrish and Mike Rackley of Greenville. David Wayne Gormandy, cousin of the groom, was ringbearer.
Brass fern stands filled with greenery and spiral candelabra holding white tapers formed the background for the ceremony.
Mrs. Kay Stuth, organist, played traditional wedding music for the ceremony.
The reception was held in the Fellowship Hall of the church. A white lace cloth over white satin covered the bride's table, centered with an arrangement of blue tipped white chrysanthemums. Silver appointments were used to serve the punch and the three-tiered cake.
Houseparty members were Mrs. Lloyd Lanier, Miss Kay Waddle, Mrs. James Daughtery, and Mrs. Mike Meglasson.
Following a short wedding trip to Arkansas, the couple will live in Greenville, where the groom, a student at East Texas State University, is employed by Lake Printing Company. The bride is a graduate of Celeste High School and is employed by Greenville Pant Manufacturing Company.
