One of the prettiest weddings of the season was held at the Evanston hotel Saturday evening of last week when Dorothy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Adelbert Bushnell of the Westminster apartments, Evanston, became the bride of Mr. Julian C. Hess, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wiliam E. Hess of this village, one hundered guests being present. The bride was beautiful in white beaded georgette made with a full court train of white satin and a tulle veil held in place by orange blossoms. She carried a flower bouquet of lillies of the valley and brides' roses. The bridal party included Miss Jessie Hess, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, in a frock of green georgette over pink satin. Miss Marie Grosh of Ravenswood, in an attractive frock of pink taffeta, and little Jean Brashears, the bride's cousin, as flower girl, strewing rose petals in the path of the bride, who marched in supported by her father, to the strain of Lohengren, played by Miss Hazel Trager of La Grange. The groom was attended by Mr. William Norris of Wilmette as best man. Prior to the service the guests were delightfully entertained by several vocal selections rendered by Mrs. Fredericka Gerhardt-Downing of Oak Park. After the service which was read by the Rev. A. S. C. Clarke of the Second Presbyterian church of Evanston, the guests enjoyed dancing and refreshments and sent the bridal couple on their happy way amid showers of rice and confetti. Mr. and Mrs. Hess are spending the week touring the state of Wisconsin and making their headquarters at Delavan Lake. They will be at home after August first at 4816 Drake avenue, Chicago.
