Mary Alice Tennille

A charming wedding...

The Orange Chronicle
Saturday, June 9, 1900

A charming wedding took place Saturday afternoon, at 2.30 o'clock, at the residence of Mr. And Mrs. William A. Tennille, 77 Carnegie avenue, East Orange, when their daughter, Miss Mary Alice Tennille, was married to William Frederick Dix, editor of the Home Journal, of New York, and son of Mr. And Mrs. John E. Dix, of 132 Harrison street, East Orange, formerly of Newark. There were only the immediate families and a few intimate friends present at the ceremony, which was solemnized by the Rev. Dr. James M. Ludlow, pastor of the Munn Avenue Presbyterian church, assisted by the Rev. John R. Fisher, of Newark, a cousin of the bridegroom. The house was elaborately decorated with palms and roses by Massman. The maid of honor was Miss Edith Ludlow, daughter of the officiating clergyman, and the bridesmaids were Miss Caroline Briggs, of New York, and Miss Sallie Miller, of Waterbury, Conn. The best man was Professor Howard Crosby Warren, of Princeton University, and the ushers were Charles G. Titsworth, of Newark; George F. Tennille and William A. Tennille, Jr., brothers of the bride, and Alden Freeman, of East Orange. The bride wore a rich gown of white satin closed at the throat, made with a full court train and trimmed with rare old point lace. She carried a bouquet of white bridal roses and wore a diamond brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. The maid of honor and the bridesmaids wore white organdie and large white hats and carried bouquets of pink roses. A large reception followed the ceremony, from 4 to 6 o'clock, and later Mr. And Mrs. Dix left on their wedding tour. They will reside in a house now being built for them on Harrison street.
