Bright with yuletide decorations, St. Joseph's R.C. Church, Grimsby, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday morning at 9:30 when Rev. B.I. Webster united in marriage Josephine Florence, daughter of Mrs. Phipps and the late Mr. Walter Phipps, and Mr. Michael James Webb, Fort Erie,elder son of Mrs. Webb and the late Mr. William Webb, Beamsville. Mrs. C.M. Hourigan presided at the organ, and Miss Peggy O'Neil, as soloist, sang Panis Angelicus at the offertory, O Lord I am Not Worthy at the communion, and during the signing of the register, On This Day, O Beautiful Mother.

The bride wore a gracefully draped gown of romance blue silver crepe, burgundy felt hat and matching accessories. Her corsage bouquet of American Beauty roses completed the ensemble. Mrs. Frank Hurst, Grimsby, sister of the bride, was matron of honour, wearing a becoming tunic dress of honey beige crepe, and nigger brown accessories. Her corsage bouquet was of Talisman roses and bronze chrysanthemums.

Mr. Thomas Webb, Beamsville, was his brother's groomsman.

A reception for the immediate friends and relatives followed at the home of the bride's mother, 10 Ontario Street.

Mrs. Phipps received wearing grey sheer with black accessories, while the groom's mother was dressed in plum crepe with black accessories.

Mr. and Mrs. Michael James Webb are taking up residence in Fort Erie following a wedding trip to eastern Ontario. For travelling the bride donned a smart black Persian-trim coat over her wedding dress.
