A simple but pretty wedding
was solemnized in the
Old Windham Church on Wednesday afternoon at
two o'clock, when Louisa Lazelle, daughter of Mr. Harry Beemer of
Colborne, was united to James Robert Collver, only son of Mr. and
Mrs. Herbert C. Collver of Townsend.
As the strains of
Lohengrin's beautiful Wedding March were played by Miss Rena Slaght,
the bridal party took its place at the alter, where the Methodist
ceremony was impressively conducted by Rev. J. D. Snider, pastor of
The bride's simple gown of
crepe de chene, with pearl trimmings, was completed with a beautiful
tulle veil and orange blossoms, and a shower bouquet of white and
ophelia rosebuds, and the maid of honor, Miss Clara Porter of
Simcoe, was prettily dressed in pink silk creme de cheme and
georgette crepe, with black hat, and a bouquet of sunburst roses.
The groom was unattained.
After the ceremony the
guests repaired to Meadow Farm, the home of the bride's father,
where a reception was followed by a dainty luncheon. Later in the
afternoon the happy couple left for a motor trip.
Among the many beautiful
gifts was a fumed oak writing desk from "the Old Windham people
and other friends."
An interesting point in
connection with this event is the fact that in a few months the
church will celebrate its 50th anniversary, and this is the first
wedding that has taken place there since the edifice was erected.
