Wedded in Giles County.
Marriage of Dr. Miller and Miss Frances Easley.
Pearisburg, Va., July 25. – (Special.)
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Thrasher, near town, there occurred on Wednesday evening a very beautiful wedding. The contracting parties were Miss Frances Smoot Easley, daughter of Mrs. Minne C. Easley, and Dr. Walter Peck Miller, of Newport, Va. To the soft sweet strains of Medelssohn’s wedding march, played by Mrs. Mason, sister of the bride, the groom entered the parlor with his brother, Mr. William Miller, of Newport. Immediately following were the bride and her sister, Miss Mary Augusta Easley, as maid of honor.
The ceremony was performed in a very solemn and impressive manner by Rev. Dr. Clarke, of Bluefield.
The parlor had been tastefully decorated with ferns, Bride’s roses, and carnations, the color scheme white and green, being carried out in the dining-room as well as in the parlors.
The bride was most becomingly gowned in white Paris mousseline, with a long vail [sic] and orange blossoms.
Immediately after the ceremony the bridal party repaired to the dining room where a sumptuous luncheon awaited them. At 5:30 o’clock, the bridal party left for the home of the groom near Newport, where a reception was tendered them.
Out-of-town guests attending the wedding were Mrs. R. T. Ellett and daughter, Miss Sadie, of Christiansburg; Mrs. Glen Baylor and daughters, Misses Mary and Lillian, of Chilhowie; Misses Sallie Miller and Glenna Dunkle, of Newport; Mrs. James Mann, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Easley, Rev. P. C. Clarke, and Mr. Frank Easley, of Bluefield; Miss Minnie McComas, of St. Albans; Mrs. G. A. and Miss Minnie and Killey French, or Narrows; Mrs. C. A. and Miss Elene French, of Bluff City; Mr. Joe Miller, of White Gate; Mr. William and James Miller, and Charles Logan, of Newport.
Dr, Miller graduated the University College of Medicine, in Richmond, a few years ago, and located at Newport, where he has already acquired a lucrative practice. His fair bride is one of Pearisburg’s most charming young ladies and one only hears fond wishes for the happiness of the two young lives so auspiciously united.
