Pretty May Wedding

On Wednesday evening, 21 May 1919, the home of Mrs. Margaret G. Woodward, Talbot Street, Simcoe, was artistically decorated with Darwin tulips and apple blossoms, the occasion being the marriage of her eldest daughter, at 7 o'clock.

Precisely at the hour appointed, to the strains of a wedding march played by Miss Lulu Leach, the bride, Miss Inez Mildred, leaning on the arm of her mother, who gave her away, entered the drawing room and was married by Rev. D. A. Moir, to Mr. Earl Mills of Chicago, in the presence of a few relatives and about 35 invited guests.

The bride was becomingly gowned in white with veil, and carried a shower bouquet of white and cream roses. The bridesmaid was Miss Evelyn Olds, sister of the bride, who wore a gown of Rose silk. Mr. Gordon Bell of Toronto, cousin of the groom, was the best man.

After the ceremony and congratulations, a wedding feast was served in the spacious dining room. The bride's travelling costume was a suit of navy blue. After honeymooning in Detroit, Mr. and Mrs. Mills will reside in Chicago.
