Shortly before the hour Miss Hedwig Herrmann prettily sang Cadman's "At Dawning" and "Calm as the Night" with Miss Evelyn Hayhurst of Lowell, a cousin of the bride, accompanying her at the piano. The bride and her attendant entered the living room to the strains of the bridal march, also played by Miss Hayhurst.
Miss Louise Findley, of Chicago, who served Miss Belshaw as a maid of honor, was attractive in a beige crepe frock with accessories to correspond. To complete her costume she had a prettily fashioned bouquet. The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was lovely in a becoming cream colored georgette frock, made attractively. Her bride's bouquet, which added a lovely touch to her gown, was fashioned of colorful sultanas and white sweet peas. The groom was served as best man by his brother, Russell J. Turner.
A delightful wedding reception was held following the wedding for the guests. Attractive refreshments, with wedding delicacies prevailing, were served by young ladies from the Roosevelt high school where the bride has taught. All of the girls were members of the Masqueraders, the dramatic club with which Mrs. Turner was associated.
Mr. and Mrs. Turner will be home to their friends in Hammond at 51 Elizabeth street. The groom, who is a splendid young man, has made [sic] interested friends among the friends of the Belshaw family both in Hammond and in Lowell. He is engaged in the building and construction business in Chicago. Mrs. Turner, who was graduated from Beloit college with a B.A. degree and is a member of the Delta Gamma sorority, is a delightful young woman. She has many friends in Lowell and Hammond and among the students of the Roosevelt high school in East Chicago where she has been teaching. Both she and Mr. Turner have the best wishes of their enthusiastic friends for much happiness.
Many of the cut flowers for the decorations in the Belshaw home were from the garden of Mrs. Ed. Wheeler of Lowell.
