She was assisted by her sister, Miss Sarah Potts, as first bridesmaid, and Miss Edna Potts, cousin of the bride, as second bridesmaid, while Miss Edith Potts acted as maid of honor.

The groom was supported by Fred Doan of Port Dover and Arthur Kelly. The wedding march was played by Miss May Carpenter.

Guests to the number of 125 were present from Glen Meyer, Kelvin, Simcoe, Bloomsburg, Cherry Valley, Tyrrell, Port Dover, Rockford, Old Windham, Woodhouse, Townsend, Waterford and Iowa.

The bride was the recipient of many beautiful and costly presents.
