Phillips and Edwards

A pretty wedding quietly took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Edwards, "Summer View" farm, Townsend, on 17 May 1921 at 12.30 p.m. The contracting parties were their daughter, Tiney Mabel, and David Phillips, son of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Phillips of Townsend.

The bride entered the drawing room on the arm of her father. She wore  a sky blue messaline dress, with bridal veil and carried a shower bouquet of roses. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. G. Shaw and took place under an arch of maple leaves and twin-sister flowers, while a twin brother, Arthur, supported the groom.

The attendant of the bride was her sister, Violet. The wedding march was played by Miss Margaret Phillips and little Lily Edwards acted as flower girl. An interesting feature of the occasion was the fact that the day was the 28th wedding anniversary of the bride's parents.

About two dozen guests sat down to a sumptuous repast. Many and valuable were the gifts from friends. The gift of the groom to the bridesmaid, pianist and flower girl were brooches set with sapphire stones, and that of the groomsman a maple leaf tie pin.

The happy couple with the best wishes of their friends manifested by confetti and merriment went to Hagersville to take the 5.30 train to Hamilton, Toronto and Rynal. May they have a happy life as that suggested by the smiling sun which graced the occasion.
