A lovely wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. P. Veale of Longley Ave., Toronto, on 31 Dec 1918, when their daughter Grace was married to Gordon LeRoy Lemon, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Lemon of Simcoe, Ont, the Rev. Dr. R. N. Burns officiating.

The charming bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown of ivory charmeuse, with chantilly lace and veil of Brussels net with orange blossoms and carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses and sweet peas.

She was attended by Miss Winnifred Cox, wearing cream Brussels lace, and by Miss Amy Gunn, who wore a govn of pink Georgetta over charmeuse; both bridesmaids were wearing charming black picture hats and carried boquets of sweetheart roses. Doris and Phyllis, the little twin daughters of Mrs. W. Hider, daintily dressed in white and carrying gorgeous baskets of palest pink roses, acted as flower girls to the bride.

Mr. A. E. O'Brien of Toronto was best man.

The ceremony was started punctually at 3 o'clock p.m. by Mrs. J. Booth singing N. Lyall Phillip's "All Mine Alone." Then as the first notes of Lihangrin's [sic] wedding march sounded, the bride entered the palm-decorated drawing room leaning on the arm of her father, Mrs. G. Roy Miller softly playing the wedding music throughout the ceremony. Following which a sumptuous buffet luncheon was given by the bride's mother.

The gifts to the bride were beautiful beyond description and well nigh countless.

The happy couple left mid showers of confetti and good wishes, the bride's travelling costume being a fawn jersey cloth dress and seal coat trimming with sable and muff to match.

After spending a honeymoon through points in New York State, Mr. and Mrs. Lemon will reside in Hamilton.

Mr. and Mrs. Lemon, Miss Jessie Lemon, Mr. and Mrs. Wim. Hewson, all of Simcoe;
Mr. Leighton Lemon of Brantford,
Mrs. D. Smith and Miss Christina Smith of [Duntroon];
