On Monday, 15 Sep 1919 at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Nelles of "Sunnyside," Simcoe, the 
marriage was solemnized of Georgina Celeste, daughter of the late Thomas Ransom Nelles, to Burcham Harding of New York City.

The bride was charmingly gowned in her travelling dress of navy blue meteor, heavily beaded, and carried orchids and Ophelia roses. When leaving she wore a hat of navy blue taffeta, with "old blue" feathers, and a handsome cape of taupe [duvetya].

She was given away by her brother, Dr. Howard Nelles of Toledo, Ohio., and attended by by two little nieces, Eleanor Georgina Innes of Simcoe and Marion G. Nelles of Toledo, while two small nephews, Ted Innes and Tom Nelles, were ribbon bearers. Mr. D. A. H. Nelles, youngest brother of the bride, was groomsman. Miss Kathleen King played the wedding march. Only near relatives anhd friends were present. The ceremony was performed by a cousin, Rev. Cameron Nelles Wilson of Woodbury Forest, Virginia.

The house was beautifully decorated with clematis, hydrangeas, gladioli, and ferns, a ban of these forming a beautious background for the wedding party.

After a buffet luncheon, Mr. and Mrs. Harding left for Lake Placid Club, in the Adirondacks, and on their return will live in New York City.
