The Wedding of Mr and Mrs Raymond Atwood Lockney was solemnized Saturday at 8 pm in the First Presbyterian church. Mrs Lockney is the former Miss Elizabeth Anne Dalbey, daughter of Mr and Mrs Carl S Dalbey, 2025 Northwest Twenty-sixth street, and Mr Lockney [Raymond Atwood Lockney] is the son of Mr and Mrs Joseph Lockney, Houstonia, Mo.
Candles, decked with fern, and smilax, were used across the choir loft in the church. Baskets of Easter lilies and six candelabra decorated the altar.
Preceding the bride down the aisle was Miss Eva Fairfax Boyd, Tulsa, maid of honor, who wore a gown of pink marquisette and lace. Her bouquet of pink rosebuds, sweet peas and Shasta daisies was arranged in colonial fashion. Three bridesmaids, Miss Betty Ruth Mager, Miss Anne Martha Peterson and Miss Jane Lilly, wore pale blue marquisette with long sleeves and Peter Pan collars edged with lace. Their bouquets also were colonial. Their heart-shaped hats of marquisette were tied under the chin. Mrs Charles Massall, Ada, was candlelighter. She wore pale green marquisette with short sleeves and a tiny, colonial-type hat made of fresh flowers.
The Bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white satin wedding gown, fashioned on princess lines, and a long tulle veil. Her headdress was of rose point lace with insets of the rose point also placed at the corners of the veil. The bride's bouquet was of callalilies and she wore a string of pearls, the gift of the bridegroom.
Mrs Dana Lewis Griffith played the organ, Miss Hope Housel the harp, and Mrs Jack Whitney sang Schubert's "Ave Maria" as well as several nuptial selections. HN Kenny Brookings was best man.
