The Briggs - Lohr Wedding

From the Livonia Gazette, 25 January 1950

Hemlock - A pretty wedding took place Friday, Jan. 20, at 3 p.m. in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Briggs of Hemlock, when the Rev. Frank Carlson, pastor of the Hemlock Baptist church, united in marriage Miss Dorothy E. Lohr, daughter of Adelbert Lohr of Webster, and Lawrence G. Briggs, son of Mr. and Mrs. Briggs. The vows were exchanged before an arch decorated in white, the double ring ceremony being used.

The bride was dressed in a floor length ivory satin gown, fashioned with tightly fitted bodice, long sleeves and matching accessories. Her finger tip veil was held in place with a pale pink tiara, and she carried a bouquet of red roses and snapdragons.

Miss Constance Melema of Rochester, maid of honor, wore a floor length gown of old rose satin and matching accessories. She carried a bouquet of yellow snapdragons.

Joseph Tice of Wayland acted as best man.

Following the ceremony, a wedding luncheon was served to 30 relatives and friends. The bride’s table was arranged to seat eight, with a three tiered wedding cake, gift of the maid of honor, the center of attraction.

After a short wedding trip, the couple will be at home in Wayland.
