At the parsonage of Trinity United Church on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m., Iva, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Smith, Grimsby, became the bride of Alexander, son of Mrs. King and the late Hugh King of Hamilton.

The bride was charming in a blue suit with grey accessories, and wearing a corsage of sweet peas, forget-me-nots, and sweetheart roses. She was attended by her sister, Miss Fern Smith, dressed in a brown Harris tweed suit with green accessories, with a corsage of sweetheart roses and forget-me-nots. Mr. Samuel King of Hamilton was groomsman.

A reception for 30 guests was held at the home of the bride, which was beautifully decorated with sweet peas, carnations and daffodils. Mrs. Smith, mother of the bride, received at the door, wearing a dress of black and white crepe.

The young couple left Thursday morning for Sarnia and Strathroy, the bride choosing for travelling a suit of navy blue. They are expected back Sunday and upon returning will reside in Hamilton. They will be at home after May 10th.

Out-of-town guests at the wedding were the immediate family from Hamilton.
