A lightly edited transcript of a page 8 article from the 9 Oct 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer.


A very pleasing event occurred on 1 Oct 1919 at the Anglican Church in Nanticoke, when Nellie Frances, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Smith of Sunnyside Farm, became the bride of W. Harold Smith of Port Ryerse.

Rev. Mr. Douglas of Hagersville was the officiating clergyman.

The bride was handsomely gowned in white silk crepe de chine and veil trimmed with seed pearls and orange blossoms. (The orange blossoms were the same that were worn by her aunt, Mrs. John Chadwick 30 years ago. Owing to careful preservation they still maintained their beauty.) The shower bouquet was of white roses.

The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Katie, who wore pink silk crepe de chine and carried pink roses. Mr. Smith was attended by his brother George of Port Ryerse.

After the marriage about 50 guests partook of a dainty lunch at Sunnyside Farm. The presents were numerous and handsome, including a substantial cheque from the groom's father.

The groom's present to the bridesmaid was a gold bar pin set with pearls, and to the groomsman, a gold stick pin set with pearls.

The bride's going-away gown was of navy blue with toque to match. They motored to Jarvis and took the train to Buffalo, going from there to Toronto and points east.
