Brown, Beatrice R. (1 NOV 1929)

At the home of the brides parents Dr. and Mrs. Carl H. Brown, on Saturday, Nov. 1, 1929 the beautiful solemn marriage, rites read by the Rev. Paul Brown, pastor of the Methodist Church of Brewerton, united the lives of Miss Beatrice R. Brown and Mr. Edwin Harri Rycraft of Utica, N.Y. The only witnesses to the impressive ceremony besides the bride’s parents were her brother Hollis H. Brown and Mrs. Paul Brown, wife of the pastor.

The bride was charming in a beautiful autumn brown transparent velvet ensemble, the short velvet coat being worn over a sleeveless blouse of eggshell satin and lace from which the circular skirt of velvet hung in ripple, slightly longer at the sides with which was worn hose matching the blouse and dark brown pumps. Al large arm bouquet of Telomere roses and asparagus fern completed the picture. Leaving immediately after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Rycraft motored to Utica where a 6 o’clock wedding dinner was served at the home of the former’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Harris, the guests all being relatives of the bridegroom.

The marriage is the culmination of a romance begun four years ago, while both were students at the New York State College of Agriculture at Morrisville, graduating from courses in Horticulture and Home Economics respectively. Mr. Rycraft was honored as President of his class and also of his Fraternity, the Theta Gamma. He is a son of Mr. H L. Rycraft of Cincinnati, Ohio, a young man of sterling character and esteemed by all, well worthy of the lovely girl whom he has chosen. A number of pre-nuptial events have been held. Miss Ruth Knapp, president of the Lowman Girls Club of which the bride is a member, entertained at a kitchen shower. Mrs. H.L Wickham opened her home on Thursday for a delightful party at which a large number were entertained. The decorations were most attractive with baskets of large yellow chrysanthemums, yellow candles favors, and nut baskets. Amusing stunts, for which prizes were given the winner, provided entertainment and a dainty luncheon was served. The bridegroom was impersonated by a young woman, who, when the bride was ready, attired in a wedding veil improvised form a lace trimmed window curtain, presented her with two suit cases filled with beautiful gifts.

Mrs. Lucian Davison and Mrs. T. Scriber entertained a number of women on Tuesday at a post-nuptial shower, Mrs. Davison’s commodious home being opened for the occasion to which about twenty guests were invited. Among the gifts was a scene in water colors, the work of the host, Mr. L. A. Davison, whose pictures are well known. A delightful luncheon closed the afternoon.

After a short honeymoon, Mr. and Mrs. Rycraft will be at home in Rochester where they have a furnished apartment at 21 Tremont St. Mr. Rycraft has a position with the Hart green houses.
