Wedding Wednesday - Lawrence H. Rogers & Eliza C. Thropp

Wedding of Miss Eliza Thropp and Dr. Lawrence Rogers Solemnized Yesterday at Summer Home of the Bride on 12 Aug 1922.

One of the most charming weddings of the mid-summer was solemnized yesterday afternoon at 5 o’clock when Miss Eliza C. Thropp, daughter of Mrs. William R. Thropp, of Greenwood Avenue, became the bride of Dr. Lawrence Harrison Rogers, of East Hanover Street.  The ceremony was performed at the Thropp summer home on the White Horse Road.  The Rev. Peter K. Emmons officiated.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her brother, John Exton Thropp, was attractively gowned in white canton crepe, fashioned with a court train.  Her veil of tulle was arranged with a headdress of Duchean lace and was caught with orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet o fillies-of-the-valley and bridal roses.

Miss Euphemia Exton, a cousin of the bride, was the maid-of-honor.  She wore a gown of orchid georgette crepe with touches of silver and lace.  Her flowers were an arm bouquet of pink roses and lavender sweet peas.  Norman T. Rogers was his brother’s best man and the ushers were John Exton and Henry Collin Minton.  The wedding march was played by Tomlinson’s orchestra which was screened  by palms on the plazza.

Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held.  Later, Dr. Rogers and his bride left for a motor trip through the New England States.  Upon their return, they will reside at 237 East Hanover Street.
