A pretty home wedding took place at six o'clock Tuesday, 15 Oct 1901 at Villa Nova, when Miss Jennie Walker, eldest daughter of Mr. Philip Walker, was united in marriage to Mr. Archie W. Moore of Villa Nova.

The Rev. D. D. Burtch performed the ceremony in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white organdie, trimmed with white satin ribbon and point lace and carried a shower boquet of white roses.

The bridesmaid, Miss Celia Walker, sister of the bride, wore white organdie over yellow with trimmings of ribbon and duchess lace and carried a handsome boquet of yellow roses.

Mr. Clayton S. Collver acted as groomsman. Miss Rhoda Kitchen played the wedding march as the bridal party entered the parlor.

After congratulations were received the guest to the number of 90 repaired to the dining room, where a sumptuous repast was awaiting them and to which all did ample justice.

Mr. and Mrs. Moore left for Buffalo to spend a few days at the Pan-American. The bride's travelling gown was of grey cheviot with hat to match.

The presents to the bride were both numerous and costly, showing the high esteem in which the bride was held by her many friends.

Among the guests present from a distance were relatives from Brantford, Tillsonburg, Hamilton and Burlington.
