At a charming home wedding, Saturday afternoon, Miss Marian Dodge, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Dodge, became the bride of James Thomas Horn, of Cleveland, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Horn, of Calasaqua, Pa.

Rev. Eric M. Tasman, rector of St. Paul's, read the marriage service at 4:30, before an improvised altar in the drawing room, where cathedral candles shed their light over banked palms and ferns and American beauty roses in tall cornucopia baskets.

The bride chose for her wedding a lovely bouffant gown of white chiffon, with a five-year court train. Her chiffon veil was fastened to a cap of rosepointe lace which had belonged to her grandmother, the late Mrs. James Madison Turner. She carried a valley bouquet, arranged as a shower.

The bride's sister, Mrs. A. B. McLean, of Cleveland, was matron of honor, attired in pink chiffon. She carried pink roses and larkspur, and wore a large hat of blue horsehair braid and blue slippers of satin.

Miss Maryjo Armstrong, of Omaha, was the junior bridesmaid, wearing a corn color dress and carrying a Dutch bouquet. Roderick and Patty Ann McLean, nephew and niece of the bride, acted as ribbon bearers.

Newton Bugbee, of Trenton, N J., attended Mr. Horn as best man.

Mrs. Dodge wore a handsome gown of poudre blue Elizabeth crepe and carried a hand bouquet of sweetheart roses and valley lilies.

Following the ceremony, a wedding supper was served in the Wisteria room at the Hotel Olds. The large table, shaped like a horseshoe with guests seated on each side, was decorated with pink roses and larkspur. The Colonial trio played during the dinner.

Late Saturday evening Mr. and Mrs. Horn left for an extended trip in Canada. They will be at home in Cleveland later in the summer.

Out-of-town guests included Mrs. Charles R. Horn, mother of the bridegroom, and his two sisters, Miss Katherine and Miss Isabella Horn, of Carasaqia, Pa.; Mr. and Mrs. Newton B. Horn, of Trenton, N J.

From Cleveland, Gardner Dodge, Manley Brookman, Mrs. A. B. Miller, Mr. and Mrs. R. W Kentsmith, Charles Barr, Melvin Cole, Murray Vickers, Mrs. MacGregor Darling; Mr. and Mrs. L. M. VanNoppen were here from South Bend; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Woodruff, from Detroit; Mr. and Mrs. C. V.
