Margaret E. Harlowe & Harold C. Kale 1931 Wedding


A charming simplicity marked the nuptial ceremony at which Miss Margaret E. Harlowe, daughter of Mrs. Bess Harlowe, matron of the Ruth C. Sabin home, became the bride of Harold C. Kale of this city, son of Mr. & Mrs. M.C. Kale of Minneapolis, Minn., on Saturday. The service was solemnized at the home of the bride's grandfather, George Albright, and Mrs. Lena Albright, 1710 Michigan Avenue at 4 o'clock with the Rev. F. G. Kenny, pastor of the First Baptist Church, officiating.

Autumn flowers were tastefully arranged throughout the rooms, and in a corner of the living room, palms, chrysanthemums and tall candelabra formed a bower for the service. Miss Martha Tallant and Forrest Line, each of this city, were the only attendants. Mrs. Winton G. Harlowe of Schenectady, NY, sister in law of the bride, played Wagner's "Bridal Chorus" from "Lohengrin" as the bride and her attendant descended the stairs in to the living room where the small group of members of the immediate families were gathered.

The bride was lovely in ivory satin. An over-blouse of lace was fashioned with cowl neckline and long tight sleeves, and was attached to the skirt at the fitted waistline with scallops. The skirt was long and full. Her veil was white tulle caught about her head, cap-shape, with orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of white rose-buds and valley lilies intermingled with greenery. Miss Tallant wore flesh-pink chiffon with the new fall color combination of golden brown accessories. She carried long-stemmed chrysanthemums.

At the close of the service, a buffet wedding supper was served to the 17 present. Immediately afterward the bride and bridegroom left on a motor trip north. The bride's going-away costume was a smart wool crepe frock of the new Paradise green with brown astrakhan trim and brown accessories.

Upon their return Mr. & Mrs. Kale will make their home at 1530 Weller Ave.

The bride and bridegroom were graduates of the LaPorte High school. Mr. Kale is employed with the Buick Agency and Mrs. Kale has been employed as a stenographer at the US Slicing Machine company. Mrs. Kale is a member of the local chapter of Delta Theta Tau.

The only out of town guests at the wedding were Mr. & Mrs. Melvin Kale and daughter, Miss Janet Kale of Minneapolis, and Mr. & Mrs. Winton Harlowe of Schnectady. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
