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.
