    Text Stone / Byrne Wedding

    Surrounded by friends and relatives. Miss Gertrude Byrne and William F. Stone were married at a lovely noon wedding held Saturday at the home of the bride's mother Mrs. Helen Byrne at Laurel street and Cleveland avenue. Rev. Joseph Carpenter read the service.

    Preceding the ceremony Carleton Byrne was heard in Bohn's "Calm as the Night," and Immediately following came the joyous notes of Mendelsshon's wedding march as played by Mrs. Joseph Riordan. The couple, unattended, made their way through the garden between the home of the bride's mother and brother, across the greensward of lawn. They were met at the open doorway of the double French doors leading from the living room to the garden by the officiating clergyman. During the ceremony came the soft tones wafted through the window of the George Byrne home, of the old familiar songs, with their message, "Oh, Promise Me," "I Love You Truly" and "Love's Old Sweet Song," as played by Mrs. Riordan.

    The bride wore a gown of artichoke green crepe chiffon, and her slippers were of black satin. The bouquet was very lovely and consisted of sofe yellow Pernat roses, white sweet peas and delicate ferns, caught with flowing bows and white maline.

    Following the ceremony the wedding party was led to the home of George Byrne, brother of the bride, and Mrs. Byrne, mother, where a three course wedding breakfast was served. The tables were most attractive with the decorations of the yellow coreopsis, and columbines combined with hairbells and baby gladioli.

    Seated at the bridal table with the bride and groom were Mr. and Mrs. Earl Olmstead of Paso Robles, Miss Helen Byrne, Miss Helen Stone of San Diego, Miss Rose Stone and Miss Marian Stone of Berkeley, Miss Esther Smith of Los Angeles, George Byrne, Walter Byrne and Carleton Byrne.

    In the home of the mother the table decorations were in tones of yellow from natsturtiums. There were large clusters of fragrant wild azalea, and also arrangement of gladioli.

    The flowers were placed by Miss Anna Graves of Berkeley, an aunt of the bride. The guests were served by Mr and Mrs. W.C. Byrne, Mrs. E. Bemis, Mrs. Fd Bemis, Misses Anna Graves, Virginia Price, Mary Ellen Price, Barbara Byrne, Evelyn Graves, Beth Welch, Louise Byrne and Miriam Byrne.

    The going away gown worn by the bride was of brown tan silk with hat to match. Just before taking the auto to leave on the wedding trip to San Diego, the bride tossed the bouquet which was caught by Miss Mabel Fitzgerald.

    The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Helen Byrne of this city, and a graduate of the local high school. She also is a graduate of the University of California, and has been the school nurse at Gridley. She is a member of the State Nurses' association and of the Congregational church.

    Mr. Stone is a son of Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Stone of Berkeley and attended the university branch at Davis. He is a representative of the Earl Fruit company in the Sacramento valley. The couple will make their home at Walnut Grove.
