Bride And Her Husfeml See Each Oflfcr For First Time At Sunday Wedding In Florida Ormond Beach, Fla.-^-fh* 15-year-old bride was shy and tearful--after all, she had never a-ecn the bridegroom bcfore-^but she was faultlessly dressed for the big moment in her life. It was the royal Gypsy wedding of the- son of Mike Davis, "king" of Romany tribes In Florida. Hundreds of Sunday motorkls had · ringside seat as.the tribe turned on the music and wound up two days of celebration. After the brief ceremony, she retired to the semi-seclusion of a trailer awning while the bridegroom joined other teen-agers at a blaring j u k e box and apparently forgot about the whole thing. The marriage between J o h n Davis, 16, and pretty bespangled Katherine Johnson of Baltimore had been arranged by their fathers more than 10 years ago. Gypsy custom, said the bride's father; demands that the bargain be carried out. The couple met for the first time at the head of a feast table. A few words in dialect, a blessing followed by a burst of laughter, and the ceremony was over , "No ceremony like it in America," " said a tribesman. "Just an expression of good words from everybody, and they arrmarried.* 1 At th* end of the celebration thV newly weds,, would meet under the roof of the bridegroom's father- also by custom. Gaily attirea Gypsy notables came from all -over-Florida and other slates, bringing many gifts. The celebration began with the* roasting of half » dozen pigs in a giant barbecue pit; preparation of food on outdoor ovens * by the .women--and frequent sessions at- the outdoor bar by the men. King Davis, who calls Ormond Beach his home, holds sway over some 200 tribe members throughout Florida. He was elected by the tribe 10 years ago. Some of the bride'* relatives live in -Orlando. Her family is from Baltimore,' where her father is a coppersmith. Gypsies, says King Davis, ^believe "blind" marriages are best. In any case, there is no divorce. When a marriage fail:?, husband and wife return to the nes of their parents and cannot wed again within '.the* tribe.
