The marriage of Miss Winifred Jane Campbell, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Campbell, of Orlando, Fla., formerly of Grimsby, to M-Sgt. Marion Paul Parsons, USA, son of Mrs. Mary P. Hughes of Ripley, W. Va., was solemnized Saturday, June 28th, at the First Baptist Church of Winter Park, with the Rev. James Haskins officiating.

The church was decorated with arrangements of white gladioli and lighted tapers, against a background of palms. The program of nuptial music was given by Mrs. Yvonne Weimer, organist.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a pale pink afternoon dress, with white accessories, and carried a bouquet of pink rosebuds and white carnations.

Mrs. R.M. Bell, sister of the bride, was matron of honour, and was attired in a turquoise afternoon dress and white accessories. The maid of honor, Miss Gloria Sims, wore a chartreuse dress, with black accessories. The honor attendants both had a corsage of yellow roses.

Best man for Sgt. Parsons was Sgt. Randolph Stuart, USA, of Tennessee. Ushers included William Carlson and Ted Newark, both of Winter Park.

The bride's mother chose a pastel blue dress, with which she wore white accessories and a corsage of white carnations.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the Winter Park Country Club, where the bride's table was centered with a large silver basket of white gladioli and fern, flanked by silver candlesticks. Assisting Mrs. Campbell were Misses Ann Greene, Gay Cubbedge and Otha Mae Warner. Mrs. Carter Bradford was in charge of the bride's book.

After the reception, the couple left on a wedding trip in the West, before going to Passaic, N.J., where Sgt. Parsons will be stationed.
