The home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Todd, 98 Head Street, was the scene of a pretty wedding on 28 Jun 1920, at one o'clock, when their eldest daughter, Lillian May, became the wife of Gordon Ellis of New York City, only son of Mr. and Mrs. George Ellis of Toronto.

Roses and peonies of different shades, sweet peas and lilies of the valley decorated the draw room in which the event took place. The ceremony was performed by 
Rev. A. B. Farney, under an arch artistically arranged for the occasion.

The bride entered the drawing room leaning on the arm of her father, who gave her away. She wore a gown of delicate pink georgette, corsage of white roses.

The bridesmaid, Miss Vera Ellis of Toronto, sister of the groom, was dressed in white crepe de chine, corsage of pink roses. The groom was supported by Lawrence Todd of Grimsby, the bride's youngest brother.

After the ceremony and congratulations, the guests to the number of about 30, sat down to a wedding dinner.

Many beautiful and costly presents were received, showing that the bride was held in the highest esteem by her many  associates and relatives.

Mr. and Mrs. Ellis left later for Atlantic City, the bride travelling in a costume of navy blue tricotine with black picture hat. On the return from their honeymoon trip they will take up residence in New York City.

Among the guests from out of town were: 
Mr. & Mrs. D. Pettit of North Tonawanda, 
Mrs. R. Shannon of Grimsby, 
Mr. George Shannon of Dundas, 
Mr. & Mrs. M. Todd of Grimsby, 
Miss E. Renz of Buffalo, 
Miss L. Parkman of Buffalo, 
Mrs. G. Oakley of Grimsby, and 
others from nearby points.
