The Montgomery Alabama Advertiser
December 9, 1917

Peterman, Alabama, December 8 -
A pretty home wedding was enacted on December the 6th at Peterman, Alabama when Mr. Charles Floyd and Miss Bertha Buford plighted their troth in the presence of a few of their friends.  The home was made beautiful for this occasion with palms, ferns and southern smilax.  In the spacious hall where the ceremony was performed was an improvised arch draped with smilax and from which was suspended a large bell of white chrysanthemums.  The bride and groom with their attendants, Miss Sallie McKee and Mr. Marcus Buford entered the hall to the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, which was rendered by Miss Annie Kearley, of Tunnel Springs.
The bridal party was met under the arch by the Rev. Mr. Hunter, who impressively pronounced the ceremony which united the young couple.
During the ceremony the Flower Song was played softly by Miss Kearley.  The bride was handsomely attired in a suite of blue French serge with which she wore grey accessories and carried a bouquet of bride's roses.  Miss McKee looked very sweet and girlish in a suit of brown with white hat, shoes and gloves to harmonize and a corsage of brides roses.
The party left the hall while Lohengrin's march was being played.
Mrs. Floyd is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Eddins and on account of her lovable disposition and many accomplishments she has a host of friends who wish for her a long life of happiness.
Mr. Floyd is a popular employee of the Louisville and Nashville railroad.
Mr. and Mrs. Floyd left immediately after the ceremony for a visit to Florida, after which they will make their home with the bride's parents.
The out of town guests who were present, were Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Jones, of Marianna, Florida and Mrs. Castelaw, of Roy, Alabama, relatives of the bride
