    • "Miss Bumgarner Is Bride Of Mr. Bryan Gilreath: Ceremony Is Performed At The Home of Bride's Parents; Out Of Town Guests:
      A wedding of much interest to a wide circle of friends, and coming as a complete surprise, was solemnized Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents in Wilkesboro, when Miss Gail Bumgarner became the bride of Jennings Bryan Gilreath, of this city. Rev. S. S. Jennings officiated, using the impressive ring ritual.
      The home was artistically decorated for the ceremony in a nuptial setting of green and white. In the living room, where the vows were spoken, an altar was improvised of white Chrysanthemums, candles, ferns and other greenery.
      The bride and bridegroom entered together unattended while the wedding march was played by Mrs. R. O. Poplin, a sister of the bride. The bride was becomingly attired in a brown crepe travelling suit, with accessories to match. She wore a corsage of talisman roses.
      Mr. and Mrs. Gilreath left immediately after the ceremony for a motor trip to Washington, New york, Niagra Falls and other points of interest and upon their return will be at home in North Wilesboro after December the first.
      Mrs. Gilreath is an accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Linville Bumgarner and has been assistant register of deeds of Wilkes county for a number of years. She is also a justice of the peace and has made a record for herself in officiating at nearly five hundred marriages.
      Mr. Gilreath, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Gilreath, of this city, holds a responsible position as agent for the Southern Express company at North Wilkesboro.
