Weddings and Engagements

A charming wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. William A. Tennille, of Carnegie avenue, on Saturday afternoon, when their daughter, Miss Mary Alice Tennille, was married to Mr. William Frederick Dix, also of East Orange. The ceremony was performed 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 tastefully decorated with palms and cut flowers, and presented a most attractive appearance. Miss Edith Ludlow was the maid of honor 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, and the ushers were Mr. Charles G. Titsworth, of Newark; Mr. George F. Tennille and Mr. William A. Tennille, Jr., brothers of the bride, and Mr. Alden Freeman, also of East Orange. The bride wore a dress of white satin, closed at the throat, made with full court train and trimmed with old lace. She also wore a diamond brooch, the gift of the bridegroom, and her bouquet was of white roses. The maid of honor and bridesmaids wore dresses of white organdie and white hats trimmed with pink roses. They also carried bouquets of pink roses. After a reception Mr. and Mrs. Dix left on a wedding trip on their return they will reside on Harrison street.
