St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, beautiful with summer flowers, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Wednesday afternoon, at 4:00 o'clock when Louisa Viola, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Flett was united in marriage to Wilfrid C. Morrison of Grimsby, formerly of Winnipeg. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. H. S. Graham, assisted by the Rev. L.H. Currie, former pastor of St. John's Church.
The bride entered the church on the arm of her father to the strains of the Lohengrin Wedding march, played by Mr. C.H. Milligan, and looked charming in white French Georgette with Limerick lace trimmings. Her long veil of Brussels net, hand embroidered, was arranged Juliette fashion, falling in cascades from the sides, caught with cornet of pearls and orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses, valley lilies and baby's breath.
Miss Libbie Flett, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid, dressed in a period frock of sea-spray taffeta with silver trimmings, hat to match and silver slippers, carrying an arm bouquet of butterfly roses and baby's breath.
Mary Louise Flett of Seaforth, niece of the bride, made a charming flower girl in peach-blossom taffeta with hat to match and carried a basket of sweet heart roses and sweet peas.
The groom was attended by J. Currie Flett, of Buffalo, brother of the bride. The ushers were Henry B. Currie of Niagara Falls, and T.A. Flett of Grimsby, cousin and brother of the bride.
During the signing of the register, Miss Olive Russell of Hamilton sang very sweetly "It is not because your heart is mine".
The groom's gift to the bride was a necklace of amethysts, to the bridesmaid a bar pin set with emeralds, to the flower girl a ring set with sapphires, to the groomsman a silver cigarette case, to the ushers and pianist gold penknives and to the soloist a gold compact.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at "Braeside", the home of the bride's parents, about 60 guests being present.
The house was prettily decorated with pink gladioli, roses and sweet peas. Mr. and Mrs. Flett received the bride and groom, Mrs. Flett wearing a black and sand crepe Romaine dress with hat to match, and a corsage bouquet of mauve sweet peas, lily of the valley and maiden hair fern.
A dainty buffet luncheon was served by Miss Mary Currie, cousin of the bride, assisted by the Misses Edith Boyd, Mary Keating, May Crittenden and Gwendolyn Farrell.
Later in the evening Mr. and Mrs. Morrison left on an extended motor trip through the Eastern States, The bride travelled in a yellow spots suit, smart French felt hat and fox fur. On their return they will reside on Robinson Street, Grimsby.
