A Double Wedding.

Delhi Vindicator -- The home of Mr. and Mrs. Eli VanLoon was the scene of an unusually interesting event, Thursday afternoon, 26 Sep 1901, the occasion being a double wedding.

Their daughter, Miss Thera Lewella, was united in marriage to Mr. George Burns Haviland of Windham, and Miss Glennie Pearl Haviland was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. Aaron Lorenzo Saul of Atherton.

The wedding ceremonies were performed by Elder Haviland of Waterford (uncle of two of the contracting parties) in the presence of about 50 relatives and friends.

The brides looked very pretty in dainty gowns of white India dimity, trimmed with Valenciennes lace, insertion and ribbon, and carried white roses.

The bridesmaid, Miss Edith VanLoon of Buffalo, made a handsome appearance in a gown of white tucked lawn and insertion, with trimmings of pink ribbons, and carried pink carnations.

Mr. Glandford Haviland of Michigan ably assisted the groomsmen. Mr. E. L. Wilson of Vittoria played the wedding march.

The brides' travelling dresses were grey caistor cloth and steel blue ladies cloth with silk trimmings, respectively, and they wore grey velvet hats.

After the ceremony the guests adjourned to the dining room which was profusely decorated with flowers, where a sumptuous wedding dinner was served.

The brides were the recipients of many beautiful presents.

The bridal party left on the 7.20 Wabash for London, Detroit and other western points. 

Mr. and Mrs. Haviland and Mr. and Mrs. Saul are held in high esteem by the people of Delhi and vicinity, and we join their many friends in wishing them happiness and prosperity.
