I found this in the archives of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution. It costs $6.00 but is well worth it since I have never seen this.

Since it is hard to read and if blown up more it goes off the page, here is the verbiage:

July 17, 1934 The Atlanta Constitution

The marriage of Miss Thelma Roxanna James and Howard Vincent Reed was solemnized July 14 at the Rock Spring Presbyterian church with the Rev. Richard T. Gillespie officiating. The church was decorated with palms and baskets of pink gladiolus, interspersed with seven-branched candelabra.

The wedding music was rendered by Mrs. Louise McCutcheon, who sang "O, Promise Me" and "I Love Thee." "I Love You Truly" was played during the ceremony.

The ushers were C.G. Mosley and Thomas Hill. Miss Leila James, sister of the bride, was maid of honor. She was becomingly gowned in a green mousseline de soie and wore a picture hat in natural shade. Her flowers were yellow roses and pink and white garden flowers.

The bride entered the church with her brother, H.W. James, by whom she was given in marriage. They were met at the altar by the bridegroom and the best man, John Hartken.

The bride's titian loveliness was enhanced by a flowing gown of mousseline de soie in peach shade and a brown picture (hat?) was made of horsehair. Brown accessories completed her costume, and her bouquet was of talisman roses and valley lilies.

The couple left on a two-week tour of the New England states and Canada. They will stop for a short visit with the bride's parents. Mr. and Mrs. Albert D. James, of Washington, D.C. and on the return from their wedding trip will make their home in Atlanta.

Mr. and Mrs. Reed will be at home at 203 Thirteenth Street, N.E. after August 1. Mr. Reed is connected with the Atlanta branch of Knight Brothers Paper Company.
