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.

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.

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

bride was a gold sunburst set with pearls and to the pianist, a
gold broach set with brilliants.
The going-away gown was

showers of rice and confetti, left on the 4.50 train for London
and points west to spend a short pleasure trip.
