Charlotte Haskell Becomes Bride Of Mr. Hopper

On Fourth of July at the Swift Memorial Methodist Church In Sagamore, Miss Charlotte .Ann Haskell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Burton Haskell became the bride of Donnie Ray Hopper, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Hooper of Arbyrd, MO.

The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Gerald Milliken, pastor of that church. Mrs. Ernest Llen played traditional selections on the organ and accompanied Mrs. Edwin Trench who sang The Lord's Prayer and I Love You Truly. Arrangements of white gladioli centered the altar, which was flanked with palms.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of Chantilly lace and tulle with a fitted basque bodice, scalloped square neckline and long, fitted sleeves coming to a point over her hand. Her bouffant skirt was tulle with lace panels. Her elbow length veil was caught to a tiara of pearls, and she carried a hand arrangement of white roses with gypsophella.

Mrs. Clifton White of Gardiner, ME, sister of the bride, was matron of honor in a dress of aqua linen with a pale pink flowered headband and was carrying pink summer chrysanthemums. Miss Jane Philbrick of Sagamore, cousin of the bride, was bridesmaid in a similar dress of white with an orchid headband and carrying orchid summer chrysanthemums.

Susan White, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clifton White of Gardiner, ME, served as flower girl wearing a short pink dress with a headband of pink roses and carrying a basket of rose petals.

Best man was Thomas K. Parker of Otis. Ushers were Thomas Salsman and Denver Clark, both of Otis, and Richard Haskell of Sagamore brother of the bride.

Mrs. Curtis Ellis, a friend of the family who is summering at Ellisvllle Beach, received guests for the mother of the bridegroom who was unable to be present.

The bride was attired in a blue summer suit with white accessories and a corsage of red roses with white gypsophelia as the couple departed for their wedding trip through New Hampshire and Maine. On their return they will make their home in Sagamore.
