Lawrence, Della (Marriage - 14 June 1936)

In the presence of about 30 guests, Mr. Roy Chase and Miss Della Lawrence were united in marriage Sunday afternoon, June 14, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Lawrence in the town of York, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating. The double ring ceremony was used. The wedding march "Flower Song" was played by the bride’s cousin, Mrs. Herbert Borde.

Milo R. Mabie of Granton acted as best man and Miss Leona Chase, sister of the groom was maid of honor.

The bride was gowned in white satin-empire style, and wore a shoulder bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas, with also a pink rose in her hair. Miss Chase wore pale green taffeta, with a yellow rose in her hair.

The rooms were decorated with large basket of mixed flowers’ and the table color scheme was green and white with white candles.

A wedding dinner was served at the home at 5:30 at which all thirty guests were present.
