Burbank Evening Review
Monday, October 1, 1945
In a white lace wedding gown trimmed with seed pearls Miss Louise T. Flanders, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy C. Flanders of 1069 E. Santa Anita ave., became the bride Saturday at 8 p.m. of Mark M. Evans, son of Mrs. Mary B. Evans of 261 E. Tujunga ave.
The service was read in the First Presbyterian church by the Rev. Frederic G. Appleton. The bride was given in marriage by her father.
The bride dress was fashioned with full length sleeves, the skirt falling into a train. Her tiera was of lace and net with seed pearls and the veil was finger tip length. Her pearl necklace and ear rings were the gift of the groom and her flowers were white roses centered with two orchids.
Bridal attendants were Mrs. John Hendry, cousin of the bride; Mrs. Douglas R. Williams, another cousin and Mrs. Douglas Pinkerton, sister of the groom. Mrs. Hendry’s gown was of aqua marquisette, Mrs. Williams wore pink marquisette and Mr. Pinkerton also wore pink. All carried gladiolas and the three gowns were made alike.
The bridegroom’s attendants were Messrs, Paul M. Evans, Douglas R. Williams and Robert Robinson.
Flower girls were four-year-old Joan Hendry and six-year-old Carole Hendry, who wore white organdy with satin ribbon trim and organdy ruffles at neckline and bottom of the skirt.
The very small ring-bearer was Richard J. Williams, age two and a half who wore a tuxedo as did the groom’s attendants.
All the bride’s attendants, including the flower girls, wore heart-shaped lockets, gifts of the bride.
Mrs. Max Eckerman was soloist and Mrs. Ana Mojonier was organist. her selections were “Ave Maria,” and “The Lord’s Prayer”.
Following the service a reception was held in the church parlors, after which the newly wed pair left for a short trip to Santa Barbara. On their return they will live at 445 B. E. San Jose St., Burbank.
The bride’s mother is a graduate of the Willmar High School of Willmar, Minnesota and her husband was graduated from the Manuel Arts High School in Los Angeles and was with the U.S. Army nine years. He is a member of the Burbank fire department.
The new Mrs. Evans has been employed as a beauty shop operator.
