Charles T. McCabe of Lakeport last Sunday night claimed as his bride lovely Miss Evelyn Waage of Oakland, in a formal wedding ceremony in St. Benedict's church, Oakland.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ole Waage, Sr., of Oakland. She has been a frequent visitor to Lakeport. The groom, who is a well known Lakeport contractor, is the son of Charles J. McCabe and the late Mrs. McCabe of Santa Rosa. For the young couple, the wedding climaxed a romance that began at last New Year's Eve dance atthe Scotts Valley Club House.

The couple took their vows before an altar decked with gladioli. The bride wore an ivory satin gown, over which she wore the traditional lace veil. She carried her favorite prayer book, and a bouquet of orchids.

Attending the bride as matron of honor was her sister-in-law, Mrs. Ole Waage, Jr., of Oakland, formerly Miss Iris Voreis of Scotts Valley. In addition to the matron of honor, the bride was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Nellie Muller and Mrs. Robert Cook, both of Oakland. The bride's attendants wore blue net gowns, coronets of carnations, and carried bouquets of stock and pink carnations. The bride's mother wore a blue lace formal, with a purple orchid corsage at her shoulder.

Attendants for the groom were Kenneth Waage, best man, from Oakland, and Charles Hall from Santa Rosa and Ole Waage, Jr., of Oakland, ushers.

Following the wedding ceremony, a wedding dinner was held at Hotel Lakehurst in Oakland. Soft cand-light illuminated a table that was beautifully decorated with gardenias and fern.

After the dinner, a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents.

Out of town guests included Mrs. Arthur Voreis and Mr. Richard Voreis of Scotts Valley, Chas. J. McCabe, Mr. and Mrs. McLain, and Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hall of Santa Rosa, and Mr. and Mrs. Ross Voreis of San Pablo, formerly of Lakeport.

Upon their return from their honeymoon, the happy couple will make their home in Lakeport.
