Wharton - Winstead

Miss Effie Wharton Becomes the Bride of Mr. Harry Winstead

Bethel Presbyterian church, about ten miles southeast of the city, was the scene of a pretty wedding yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, when Miss Effie Eugenia Wharton, of Whitsett, became the bride of Harry Wooding Winstead of Roxboro. There was a large attendance of relatives and friends of the young couple. The church presented an attractive appearance with its artistic decorations of evergreens and wild flowers.

Just before the ceremony Miss Leslie Lindsay, of Greensboro, rendered several numbers on the piano and Mr. Robert Roy delighted the audience with two violin solo's. Mendelssohm's wedding march was played for the processional. The bridegroom was attended by his best man, Mr. James A. Long, Jr., of Roxboro. The ushers were Messrs. Charles A. Hines, of Greensboro, Richard Wharton, brother of the bride. The groomsmen were Messrs. J.E. Winstead of Roxboro; and Lee Wharton, of Gibsonville. The bridesmaids were Misses Edna Wharton, of McLeansville, Joy Belle Kime, of Burlington, and Blanche Rankin, of Whitsett. The dame of honor was Mrs. Thomas E. Wharton, of Greensboro. The bride entered leaning on the arm of her father, by whom she was given away. The ceremony was performed by Rev. C.E. Hodgin, of Greensboro.

The bride was attired in white imported satin, with yoke and bertha of real lace, the veil being fastened with orange blossoms and a diamond and pearl brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. She carried a shower bouquet of brides roses. The dame of honor wore pink chiffon over silk and black hat with plumes and carried pink carnations. The bridesmaids were attired in white batiste with pink girdles and carried bouquets of sweet peas.

Following the wedding the bridal party were entertained at the home of the bride's parents. The happy couple came to Greensboro in an automobile and after taking supper here boarded a southbound train No. 24 for a wedding trip to Florida. They will visit Norfolk, Va., before going to Roxboro, where they will be at home after May 10th.

The bride is the charming daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.A. Wharton and has many admiring friends in Greensboro. The bridegroom is engaged in the tobacco business at Roxboro, and is a young man of sterling business ability.

[Note: another much longer article on this wedding appeared in another newspaper. It was much more detailed as far as the gifts that the couple received and other details. I did not include it because parts of it were just too difficult to read.]
