A Brilliant Wedding Solemnized in Faith Lutheran Church Tuesday Evening.

A wedding of much interest to the friends of the contracting parties was solemnized in Faith Evangelical Lutheran church, on Tuesday afternoon, December the 23, when Miss Fannie Viola Agner became the bride of Mr. Derring Lee Ridenour.

Promptly at three o’clock the bridal party was announced by Miss Addie Cline of Mt. Pleasant singing “Until the End of Time.” Immediately after this the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march pealed forth, rendered by Miss Lola Brown of China Grove and the ushers Messrs. Luther Lee and H. Smith Petrea of Concord entered from the center aisle. The groom and his best man, Mr. David S. Lippard of Concord entered from the right and awaited the bride at the altar. Next came the maid of honor, Miss Lillian Cline of Mt. Pleasant, gowned in a beautiful tan costume and carrying pink and white carnations; followed by the bride, wearing an orange-peel coat suit with hat, gloves and shoes to match, leaving on the arm of her brother Mr. Edgar L. Agner. The pastor of the bride, Rev. C. P. Fisher stood waiting in the chancel where he made this happy couple husband and wife using the beautiful Lutheran ceremony while Schubert’s Serenade was softly played at the organ.

The church was simply but tastefully decorated with ferns, potted plants and white carnations.

A reception was given at the beautiful country home of the bride’s father, the hours being from 1? to 2:30 at which time a number of invited guests partook of a sumptuous dinner. The presents were numerous and useful which attest to the popularity of this couple.

The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. H. M. L. Agner of Faith, a graduate of Mont Amoena Seminary and is one of the most accomplished an popular young ladies of this vicinity.

The groom is the son of Mr. J. M. Ridenhour of St. John’s, a graduate of Newberry College and is at present engaged in school-work at Savage, S. C.

These young people have the hearty congratulations and best wishes of their many friends.
