The wedding of Karl Howard Behr and Miss Helen Newsom, a daughter of Mrs. Richard Leonard Beckwith by her first husband, took place at 3 P.M. yesterday in the Church of the Transfiguration, the Rev. Dr. Houghton officiating. The church was decorated in Easter lilies and palms.
The bride, who walked up the nave with her stepfather, Mr. Beckwith, who gave her in marriage, wore a gown of white satin charmeuse with a long veil of duches point that was draped in with the gown in pannier effect, the lace being carried down into a train. The gown was also trimmed with duchess lace. She carried lilies of the valley and white orchids.
The bridesmaids were Miss Gertrude Behr, a sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Beatrice Cook. They wore frocks of palest eau de nil chiffon over very pale pink and hats of white lace, having pink bows and all sorts of odd little Spring flowers caught in bunches here and there. They carried large bouquets of Spring flowers.
Mr. Behr's best man was Douglas Gibbons, and the ushers included Mr. Behr's three brothers, Herman Behr, Jr., and Max and Frederick Behr, also Bradford Benton, Frank Sullaway, George Carpenter, William Newsom, William H. Barnum, Howard Plummer, and Russell Peabody.
A reception at the Wendolyn, 100th Street and Riverside Drive, followed the ceremony, Mrs. Beckwith's apartment being decorated in daisies and other white flowers. Mr. and Mrs. Behr have gone on a long bridal trip. Next Autumn they will take an apartment in New York.
Both Mr. Behr and his bride are survivors of the Titanic disaster. Mr. Behr is a well-known amateur tennis player.
