Heath-Hambrick Vows Spoken In Lovely Setting

Rev. W. J. Gordon, rector of St. I Luke's church, Spray, officiated.
Miss Cuma Odell, soloist, sang "O Perfect Love". During the impressive ring ceremony came soft strains of "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden", with Miss Bettie Gordon as pianist. Tall candelabra and baskets of gladiola, hydrangeas, lilies and English ivy flanked an improvised altar, before which the vows were spoken. The bride was a picture of loveliness in her going away costume-suit of powder-blue crepe, with hat, shoes and purse of navy and gloves of white kid. She wore a corsage of white gardenias.
