WEDDED AMID GOLDEN ROD September 26, 1894 , Washington, D.C. WEDDED AMID GOLDEN ROD. Miss Edith M. Little, Daughter of the Pastor of Assembly's Church, United to Dr. Charles L. Bliss. One of the most exquisitely appointed weddings of the autumn season was that of Miss Edlth Mitchell Little, daughter of Rev. Dr George O. Little, pastor of Assembly's Presbyterian Church, and Dr. Charles Llncoln Bliss, of Beirut, Syrla, who were united in marriage at Assembly's Church last night at 8 o'clock, the bride's father performing the ceremony. Rev. Arthur M. Little, Ph.D., brother of the bride, played the wedding chorus from Lohengrin as the bridal party entered tho church, led by twelve young ladles singing the chorus. As they reached the front o the pulpit they formed on either side of the aisle, and with bunches of golden rod formed an arch, under which the rest of the party passed. First came the ushers, preceding the bride and her father, who were followed by the maid of honor. The groom and his attendant met the party at the altar, where Dr. Little took his place as officiating clergyman. Weber's grand march was played as a recessional. The bride was dressed in white satin, made en train, with a pearl bodice, wore Bride roses and carried a bunch of the same tied with white satin ribbon. The maid of honor, Miss Alice W. Griggs, of Ivoryton, Conn., wore golden crepe and carried a bouquet of white carnations, tied with orange ribbon. Sylvester S. Bliss, of New York City, brother of the groom, acted as groomsman. The twelve young ladles who sung the chorus were Misses Minnle and Flossie Keene, Ella Lyman, Vena Wells, Nellie Stetson, Blanche Campbell, Stella Tucker, Nellie Brown, Lou McElfresh, and Ella, Jennie, and Gertrude Davis. They were dressed in white with golden ribbons, and carried large bunches of golden rod. The ushers were Norton M. Little, of Duluth, Minn., brother of the bride; F. H. Schauffler, of Cleveland. Ohio; Dr R. W. Hastings, of Boston; Joseph G. Hastings, of Warren. Mass; J. C. Burcher, of Princeton University, and W. Irving Campbell, of Washington. The church was handsomely decorated with palms and golden rod, and the church parlors were almost banked in with the same brilliant flowers. After the ceremony the young couple received several hundreds of their friends in the rooms below, where congratulatlons and good wishes were showered upon them. Refreshments were served to all who wished, and shortly after 9 o'clock the bridal party, twenty-two in number, sat down to the weddlng supper. The room was lit with wax lights with golden shades, and the table decorations were all of yellow. Several hundred presents were received by Mr. and Mrs. Bliss, but they had all been packed up and shipped away, so were not on exhibition. Among them, however, was a solid sliver service, consisting of berry dish, cream pitcher, sugar bowl and tongs, presented by the officers of Assembly's Church.
