CLARKSON-THELIN. – A marriage of much interest which took place last evening was that of Miss Marie Bertin Thelin, daughter of Mrs. William T. Thelin, of Mount Washington, to Mr. Thomas B. Clarkson, of Prince William county, Va. The bride, through her father, the late William T. Thelin, of this city, is of old French Huguenot descent, while through her mother, a daughter of the late Judge Griswold, she is a representative of one of the most important colonial lines of Maryland. She is a very charming young girl, who only made her debut two seasons ago. The groom is a son of Dr. Clarkson, of Prince William county, and comes of an old South Carolina family.
The ceremony was performed at 8 p. m. at St. John's Protestant Episcopal church, Mount Washington, by the rector, Rev. Wilbur F. Watkins, Jr. The interior was beautifully decorated by the members of St. Mary's Guild with a profusion of sweet peas, roses, smilax and ferns. Over the chancel was erected a canopy of red and white roses, beneath which the young couple stood for the marriage service. Announcing the approach of the bridal party the hymn "Oh, Perfect Love" was sung by the choir of St. John's, the wedding chorus from "Lohengrin" being afterward rendered upon the organ by Miss Berth leary as the processional. The bride entered with her brother, Mr. Griswold Tehlin, by whom she was given away. She wore an exquisite gown of white liberty silk, trimmed with old lace, and a tulie veil, taught with orange blossoms. Her ornaments were pearls, and instead of a bouquet she carried a white prayer book. Two little girls – Misses Mary Kirk and Floy Van Den Burg – served as flower girls in dainty frocks of white embroidered mull, with pink ribbons, and carrying a basket of pink bridesmaid roses.
Mr. Walter Clarkson of Washington, brother of the groom, was best man. The ushers were Mr. Robert H. B. Beverly, Mr. Alexander M. Breckenridge, and Mr. Hugh T. Clarkson, all of Virginia; Mr. Carl Clarkson, of Alabama, Mr. Thomas B. Headley, of Philadelphia, and Mr. William T. Thelin, Jr. of Lewiston, Pa. After the ceremony the immediate members of the two families and the bridal party returned to the residence of Mrs. Thelin to drink the health of the bride and groom, who soon after left on their wedding trip. Upon their return they will reside in Washington, D.C.
On Tuesday afternoon the bridal party, with members of the two families, were entertained at luncheon at the Baltimore Country Club by Mrs. Charles E. Phelps, sister of the bride. On Monday evening, a dinner in honor of the groom and his attendants was given by Charles. E. Phelps, also at the Country Club.
