Lovely Wedding Solemnized Here

September 4, 1941

Miss Mary Agnes Shipley Bride of Levin S. Comley Monday Afternoon

The home of Mr. and Mrs. William S. Shipley was the scene of a lovely early Fall wedding on Monday, when their younger daughter, Mary Agnes, became the bride of Levin S. Comley of Chesterstown, Md.

The ceremony took place in the garden of the home before an improvised archway, banked with flowers, autumn leaves, candelabras and tall baskets of cut flowers. While the guests were gathering, a musical program was rendered by Mrs. Karl Justus, pianist, and Joseph Seivold, violinist. Frank Mellor, tenor, sang three numbers — “Because,” “Through the Years,” and Grieg’s “ich Liebe Dicht” (I love Thee).

At four o’clock, to the strains of the Lohengrin wedding march, the bridal party led the wedding procession, followed by six bridesmaids, walking in twos, the maid of honor and two flower girls.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Edward R. Brahm, pastor of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Sykesville.

Members of the Bridal Party

The bride, on the arm of her father, who gave her in marriage, wore a gown of white chiffon, in tailored styles, with an illusion veil of fingertip length, caught with a coronet of orange blossoms, and with a short train. She carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums, baby’s breath and other flowers.

All of the bride’s attendants were attired in chiffon gowns, make alike, of the Fall nasturium shades. Each wore a floral wreath in her hair and each carried a spray of chrysanthemums.

The maids were: Miss Mary Anna Comley, sister of the groom, of Wilmington, Del, and Miss Dorothy Mae Robinson, of Washington, dressed in flame color; Miss Edna Brooks, of Baltimore, and Miss Helen Durding of Rock Hall, in nectarine; and Miss Katherine Cooms, of Washington, and Miss Margaret Louise Bennett, of Sykesville, in rosewood.
