The bride looked charming in a gown of white silk with satin ribbon trimmings. She wore the conventional veil with wreath of orange blossoms and carried a bouquet of orange blossoms and ferns.

Miss Minnie Stetler, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid, wearing silver gray silk with dress of pale pink ninon and carrying a bouquet of pink roses. Mr. Gordon Stetler supported the groom.

The bridal party entered the drawing room to the wedding march played by Miss Myrtle Boyle and took their places before a bank of ferns and roses. During the signing of the register, Miss Boyle sang sweetly 
"I Love You Truly."

After the ceremony the guests retired to the dining room were a dainty wedding breakfast was served. The bride was the recipient of a number of beautiful and useful gifts.

The happy couple left in the afternoon for Guelph and other points west, the bride travelling in a suite of reindeer serge with large picture hat.
