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.
