The house was beautifully decorated with autumn leaves and flowers, the color scheme being yellow and white. As the clock struck the hour of twelve, "I Love You Truly" was played by Miss Merle Belshaw and when the strains of the wedding march were heard the groom, accompanied by Harry Hathaway, took his place beneath the arch. The bride, attended by her sister, Miss Grace, then came down the bridal pathway which led to the arch. The beautiful ring ceremony was used.
The bride wore a white dress of crepe meteor trimmed in Chantilly lace and carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses and lilies of the valley. The immediate families and intimate friends of the bride and groom, to the number of thirty, witnessed the ceremony. After congratulations had been received a dainty three course luncheon was served.
Later in the afternoon an auto took Mr. and Mrs. Wason to Grant Park. From there they went to Chicago, where they spent a few days. Both the young people are well known, the bride having been a successful teacher in the schools of West Creek township until last year, when she attended Northwestern University. The groom is the son of the late T.A. Wason and a graduate of Purdue University. They have a host of friends who wish them a happy and prosperous life.
