A Pretty Marriage

From the 25 Mar 1898 Roanoke Beacon, pg. 3

The M.E. Church at Roper, with its decorations of evergreens and flowers was the scene of a pretty marriage on Wednesday evening last, the contracting parties being Mr. J.T. LEWIS and Miss Lelia SAVAGE.

At the appointed hour the bridal party entered the church in the following order: The groom, escorted by his best man, Mr. E. CHRISTIAN, entered the left aisle, being preceded by usher Mr. W. N. COOPER, of Plymouth, the bride, with the Maid of Honor, her sister, Miss Anna SAVAGE, entered the right aisle, preceded by usher — LEWIS. At the alter they were met by Rev. E. H. DAVIS, who performed the ceremony which made them man and wife.

After the ceremony the bridal party repaired to the residence of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.L. SAVAGE, where a magnificent reception was held. The bridal presents were numerous and costly. We join the many friends in extending congratulations.
