Tillsonburg Observer -- On Wednesday, July 17th, at 12.30 p.m., at the residence of the bride's parents, Chief and Mrs. Pow, Harvey St., the marriage of their daughter, Majory [sic], to Colon J. Cunningham, druggist, of Waterford, was solemnized.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. S. Cunningham, father of the groom, assisted by the Rev. F. C. Elliott, both of Waterford, those present being the immediate friends and relatives of the contracting parties.

The wedding party took their places under a beautiful horseshoe of marguerites, back of which was banked a profusion of luxuriant plants and ferns. The wedding march was played by Miss Nellie Pitt of Hamilton.

The bride wore a handsome gown of pink silk, trimmed with accordion plaiting, and an over dress of white tucked chiffon, and carried a boquet of white roses.

She was attended by her sister, Miss Belle Pow, who was attired in a gown of blue silk trimmed with accordion plaiting and Battenburg lace, and carried a boquet of pink roses.

The groom was supported by Dr. Jas. Gray of St. Catharines. Little Miss Tena Pitt was maid of honor and carried the ring in a basket of flowers.

After the ceremony a dainty wedding breakfast was served in the dining room. The dining room decorations were of white and green, the table being festooned with fine green vines mingled with marguerites.

The bride was the recipient of many rich presents, among them being valuable pieces of china and silverware.

Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham left on the M.C.R., at 3 o'clock for Niagara-on-the-Lake, and will take a trip down the St. Lawrence before their return to Waterford, whose a cosy home is in readiness for them.

The bride's going-away costume was a tailor-made gown of grey cloth with white silk waist and white felt hat trimmed with a Dresden scarf.

Among the guests from a distance who attended the wedding were:
Rev. S. and Mrs. Cunningham, parents of the groom, the Misses Cassie and Sabie Cunningham, Mr. Delos Cunningham and Rev. F. C. and Mrs. Elliott of Waterford; 
Mr. and Mrs. Pitt and Misses Nellie and Tena Pitt and F. C. Binkley of Hamilton; 
and Dr. Jas. Gray of St. Catharines.

The bride, who is one of Tillsonburg's most esteemed young ladies, had charge of the millinery department in M. H. Cook's store in Waterford the past year. She is well known in town and has many friends and acquaintances who will wish her and her husband much happiness and prosperity.
