Miss Freeny and Lieut Burger Marry

An interesting wedding in St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, at College Park, Md., at 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon was that of Miss Frances  F. Freeny, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin E. Freeny of Delmar, Del., to  Lieut. Joseph Charles Burger, U. S. M. C., stationed in Washington. The decorations of evergreens and lilies laced about the altar made an effective back ground for the wedding party, the Rev. Ronald Taylor  performing the ceremony. The program of music given by Mr. Edwin Connor included the ‘Wedding March” from “Lohengrin,” and “O Promise Me” and “I Love You Truly," were sung by the sorority sisters of the bride, Miss Louise Townsend, Miss Katharine Affieman, Miss Eleanor Seal, Miss Louise Marlow, Miss Mary S. York, Miss Mary Jane McCurdy, Miss Minnie Hill, Miss Elizabeth Duvall, Miss Emily Herzog, Miss Margaret Wolfe, Miss Frances Wolfe, Miss Helen Beyerle, all classmates and graduates or under graduates of the  Maryland University.
The bride was given in marriage by her father, and wore a graceful gown of white satin with a long skirt, the trimming of tulle being caught with orange blossoms. The very long and full tulle veil almost enveloped the train and she carried a bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Eleanor Parker Freeny, sister of the bride, served her as maid of honor and wore a gown of orange-color georgette trimmed with net of the same hue, her hat being of gold net and her slippers further carrying out the color scheme. She carried butterfly roses.

Lieut. Burger had as best man Lieut.Caleb Thayer Bailey, U. S. M. C., and as ushers Lieut. J. Farrell, Quantico, Va.;  Lieut. Kenneth B. Chappell of Washington, Lieut. Edward Pugh, Quantico: Lieut. Thomas J. McQuade of Quantico, all officers in the Marine Corps.

A reception in the Sigma Delta Sorority House at College Park followed the ceremony. Miss Marie Mount, dean of home economics, and Miss Adell Stamp, dean of women of the University of Maryland, assisted at the table. Mrs. Freeny, mother of the bride, wore a gown of black transparent velvet, and she and Mrs. Burger, mother of the bridegroom, also assisted.  Later, when Lieut, and Mrs. Burger left for a wedding journey, she wore a costume of navy blue. They will make their home in Washington while he is stationed here.  Both Lieut. Burger, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence W. Burger of Cherrydale, Va., and Mrs. Burger are graduates of the University of Mary land, he in the class of 1925, and Mrs. Burger graduating two years later.
