BECOMES BRIDE OF MR.
BOYD M. WOODARD
MR. AND MRS. Charles Fitzenreiter announce the marriage of their daughter, Elizabeth Barbara, to Mr. Boyd Maurice Woodard, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joel Ernest Woodard of Rodessa, La.
The wedding was very quietly solemnized Friday afternoon in the First Methodist church, the Rev. H. L. Johns performing the double ring ceremony at five o'clock in the presence of the immediate family and a few close friends.
Pink gladioli arranged in tall standards about the altar against a background of palms and ferns gave a lovely setting for the service.
The bride, given in marriage by her father, had as her only attendant her sister, Miss Clara Fitzenreiter. Mr. Gus Stacy, Jr. served as best man to the bridegroom.
The bride wore a beautiful ensemble of mossy crepe in royal air force blue, the neckline of the tailored dress caught with rhinestone clips. She wore a corsage of white pom pom asters and maline on her smart short coat, black accessories and white gloves.
Miss Fitzenreiter was gowned in cinnamon brown printed crepe, a redingote model, with which she wore brown accessories and a corsage of yellow chrysanthemums.
The bride's mother was attired in rose beige shadow chiffon and a corsage of rubrum lilies.
The bride, a descendant of an old pioneer family of Lake Charles, is a great-granddaughter of the late Mr. Daniel Goos and a great-niece of the late Mrs. J. A. Bel. She is an attractive and accomplished young girl and has a wide circle of friends whose good wishes are centered in her marriage. She is a graduate of the Lake Charles High school and of Sophie Newcomb college in New Orleans. She is a member of the English Bayou High school faculty.
Mr. Woodard is a graduate of the Louisiana State Normal in Natchitoches. He is principal of the Westlake High school.
Following a wedding trip to New Orleans, Mr. and Mrs. Woodard will make their home in Westlake.
