Chislett-Stoffel

A very pleasant event took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Stoffel at Bloomsburg on Wednesday, 14 Sep 1910, when their eldest daughter, Nellie May, was united in marriage to Mr. George Chislett of Boston.

Promptly at noon, to the strains of the wedding march, beautifully rendered by Miss Clara Collver, the bridal party took their places on the porch, under an arch of evergreens and white asters.

The bride was given away by her father and looked handsome in a white princess gown trimmed with valenciennes lace and insertion. She carried a bouquet of bridal roses and maiden-hair ferns.

The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Elliott of Waterford, in the presence of about 60 relatives and friends.

After congratulations had been extended to the happy couple, a sumptuous repast was served on the lawn. This was followed by the photographing of the whole company by J. H. Butler of Simcoe.

During the afternoon several musical selections was rendered by Miss Elma Hobson of Hamilton, cousin of the groom.

The bride was the recipient of many beautiful and useful presents, showing the high esteem in which the young couple are held. 

The groom's gift to the bride was a gold sunburst set with pearls and to the pianist, a gold broach set with brilliants.

The going-away gown was green cloth, with a white picture-hat. Mr. and Mrs. Chislett, amid showers of rice and confetti, left on the 4.50 train for London and points west to spend a short pleasure trip.
