A wedding of more than usual interest took place on Wednesday, 30 Jun 1920, in St. Mary's Church, LaSalette, when Leona, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Danaiel Schooley, was married to Almonte Murphy, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Murphy, the Rev. Father Mahony officiating.

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very bewitching in a gown of ivory satin with bodice and trimmings of silver lace. She wore a beautiful bridal veil, crowned with pearls and orange blossoms. Her bouquet was white carnations.

The bridesmaid, Miss Zita Pettit, who wore a pink organdy gown, white milan picture hat, with touches of embroidered pink organdy, carried pink carnations. The fair bride and her maid were typical June rosebuds.

Mrs. Pettit played the wedding march and accompanied the soloists, Mrs. Jos. Boll and Miss Kathryn Tyrrell.

A recption and buffet luncheon at the residence of the bride's parents followed the ceremony, and later the happy couple left by motor for their honeymoon across the border. The bride travelled in a navy blue tricotine suit with small French black velet hat to match.
