The home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Kelly at Glen Meyer was the scene of a quiet by pretty wedding when their eldest daughter, Carrie Ella, was united in marriage to Mr. Wilfrid H. Nethercott of Clear Creek, on Wednesday, 28 Jan 1920.

Promptly at 1 o'clock, to the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, played by Miss Alice Gale, the bride entered the parlor leaning upon the arm of her father, and stood beneath a beautiful arch of evergreens and roses, with pink and white trimmings.

The bride, was given away by her father, 
J. E. Kelly, was very becomingly attired in a dress of champagne silk and carried a bouquet of tea roses. 

Two little flower girls, Misses Arlie and Ena Kelly, accompanied the bride to the archway, and looked very charming in white viole dresses. Miss Ena Kelly also acted in the capacity of ring-bearer, otherwise the bride was unattended.

Rev. Mr. Rimington of Courtland performed the ceremony. During the signing of the register, Miss Alice Gale rendered the selection "O Perfect Day" on the piano, in a very capable manner.

After the signing of the register, the happy couple and guests who were immediate relatives of the contracting parties and friends adjourned to the dining room, where a very sumptuous wedding feast was partaken of. 

Immediately afterwards the bride and groom left for a honeymoon to points east. The bride looked very charming, being attired in a suit of navy blue serge with set of Manchurian furs, with hat to match suit. On their return the happy couple will make their home on the groom's farm at Clear Creek.

Numerous and valuable gifts, including a number of cheques, were received, which testified to the popular esteem in which the bride and groom are held.

The bride will be greatly missed from the social life of Glen Meyer, also in the church and Sunday School, of which she was a faithful member. However, Glen Meyer's loss will be Clear Creek's gain. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous wedded life are extended by friends of the happy couple.
