A very pretty June wedding
took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Smith of Mount
Pleasant, on Tuesday, 4 Jun 1901, when their daughter, Lena, was
united in marriage to Mr. Fred Little of Chicago, only son of Mr. A.
M. Little of Waterford.
During the playing of the
wedding march by Professor Andrews of Brantford, the bride entered
leaning on the arm of her father. The contracting parties then took
their places under a beautiful arch of flowers and the wedding
ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Burtch of Villa Nova,
assisted by Rev. Mr. Gallup of Mount Pleasant.
Miss Winnifed Tobin of
Waterford and Miss May Tuttle of Brantford acted as maids of honor.
After the couple had been
pronounced man and wife the guests to the number of about 40 sat
down to an elaborate luncheon provided by the Gibson's of Brantford.
After the health of the
bride had been proposed and responded to in a neat and humorous
speech by Mr. Fred Little, the chairman, Mr. Gallup, then called
upon several of the guest for speeches and a very pleasant half hour
was spent after which the young couple were driven to the T. H.
& B. station, accompanied by a number of their young friends,
amidst showers of rice and their good wishes.
They took the four o'clock
train for Buffalo, where they will take in the Pan-American and
other attractions of eastern cities.
The newly married couple
were the recipients of many useful and costly presents showing the
high esteem in which they are held by their friends in the
Mrs. Fred Little will be at
home to her friends on Wednesday the 12th inst., at the residence of
Mrs. A. M. Little, Waterford, after which Fred and his young wife
