Peter-Lamar-DuPont Wedding

The wedding of Charles A. Peter (18) & Dorothy Davis Lamar (17) and Edward DuPont & Mary Francis Lamar.
July 15, 1929


From a Hawesville, KY paper:


A double wedding was performed at the local Catholic Church with High Solemn Nuptial Mass, Tuesday morning at eight o'clock, between Mary Francis Lamar and Mr. Edward Dupont, of Tell City, and Miss Dorothy Lamar and Mr. Chrles Peters of Tell City, Indiana.

Rev. J. J. Rieves, pastor, officiated at the marriage ceremony and was Celebrant at the Mass assisted by Revs. Sermmershein and Reeves of Tell City.

The bridal couples entered the church to the strains of Lohengrain's Wedding Ma[r]ch, played by Mr. Bernard Beavin of Cloverport. Luzzie's Ave Marie was rendered at the Offertory by Mrs. Paul Lewis, of Cloverport.

For the Recessional, Mendelssohn's Wedding March was played. The ushers were Messers. Will and Vick Walz.

The Church was decorated in a color scheme of pink and white with lighted tapers.

The brides were gowned in white georgette and lace dresses and white picture hats. They carried bouquets of white roses and smilax.

Following the church ceremony a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the brides' parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lamar.

There were a large number of out of town guests present.

Messrs. Peters and Dupont are strangers to us. We have been informed that they are young men of sterling qualities.

Their brides are the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lamar, of near this city. They are highly educated and accomplished, and each possess that individual charm that endears them to all. The young men who won their hearts and hands are to be congratulated.

After a wedding trip of ten days the young couples will be at home to their friends in Tell City, Indiana.
