Popular Young Couple
On Thursday evening last, 4 Sep
1919, the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Milton Porter, 92 Norfolk Street south, was tastefully decorated with asters, palms,
roses and ferns, the occasion being the marriage of their youngest
daughter, Myrtle Hawthorne, to Harvey George Evans, only son of Mr. and
Mrs. A. E. Evans of Tillsonburg.
Precisely at 7 o'clock the bride,
accompanied by her father, entered the drawing room to the strains of
Mendelssohn's wedding march, played by
Mrs. Bruce Cameron of Woodstock
(nee Mary Peachey).
The matron of honor was Mrs.
Harrison Stringer, cousin of the bride. The ribbon girls were Misses Olive
Madden, Gertrude Crysler, Clara Porter, Margaret Stalker, Eileen McNally,
Mary Baillie, Vina Lea and Margaret Hamilton.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Duncan E. Foster, M.A., of St. Paul's Church, and during the signing
of the register Miss Olive Porter of Jarvis sang
"O Promise Me."
The bride looked charming in a gown
of flesh charmeuse, embroidered in silver, angle sleeves, with court train
and cardinal cross lace veil. The matron of honor was gowned in mauve
organdie and the dress of the attendants were of rainbow colors. Attending
the groom was Bruce W. Whiteside of Simcoe.
After a buffet luncheon served in
the dining room, Mr. and Mrs. Evans left on a motor trip to New York, the
bride traveling in a costume of navy blue broadcloth with chin-cheu hat to
match and beaver fur. On their return the happy couple will take up their
residence on John Street, Simcoe.
The groom's gift to the bride was a
diamond bar pin;
to the matron of honor a gold lace pin; to Miss O. Porter and Mrs.
Cameron, each a pearl bar pin; to the groomsman a tie-pin.
Many beautiful and costly presents
were received by the popular young couple, among which were two
substantial cheques from the parents of both parties.
