Clara Wolff Wears All Grey Outfit at Her Marriage [heading] Miss Clara Elizabeth Wolff wore a complete grey outfit when she was wed last Saturday evening to W. Meade Reeves. Her wool suit was trimmed on the sleeves with grey fox and her turban, with tiny grey forget-me-nots a shade darker than the hat. The only other color was a shoulder bouquet of red roses and red and white sweet peas. The marriage service was read at 8:30 o'clock by the Rev. Herman W. Meyer at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred C. Wolff, 801 Park avenue, Wilmette. The matron of honor, Mrs. A. W. Plants, of Evanston wore a pale blue crepe gown, a grey turban and grey accessories. The bridesmaid, Miss Caroline Herr of Wilmette, was in pink and grey. They both wore shoulder bouquets of pink sweet peas and white roses. The ceremony took place in the living room in front of the fireplace, which was banked with palms and ferns. It was a double ring ceremony. A reception was held afterwards for forty guests. Francis Howard of Chicago served Mr. Reeves as best man, and the bride's brother, Robert Wolff, ushered. Among the out-of-town guests were the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Reeves of Wisconsin Rapids. The bride and groom will postpone their honeymoon until next summer and are now at home at 4111 Belplaine avenue, Chicago, on the northwest side.
