Full Text

The marriage of Dorothy Eleanor Eickmeier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Eickmeier, Grimsby Beach, and Gilbert Adams Ryerson, son of Mr. and Mrs. E.L. Ryerson, of Boston, Mass., took place on Saturday, September 25th, at 4 o'clock. Rev. Taylor-Munro officiated at the double-ring ceremony, which was held at the home of the bride's parents on Park Road. The house was suitable decorated for the occasion, the mantelpiece being banked with palms, ferns and baskets of gladioli, delphiniums and chrysanthemums. Mrs. Alexander Scott, Grimsby, provided the wedding music, preceding the ceremony, and during the signing of the register. The bride, given in marriage by her father, was charming in a floor length gown of ice blue chiffon, cut on gracious lines, and having crystal beading at neck and wrists. The shoulder length veil of blue net was held in place by a bridal wreath of delicate blue flowers. She carried a bouquet of Talisman and Johanna Hill roses and bouvardia. Mrs. Harold Dawe, sister of the bride, acted as matron-of-honour, and was becomingly dressed in floor length gown of dusty rose sheer crepe with matching head-dress. She carried a bouquet of Briarcliffe roses, delphinium and gladioli. The groom was attended by Mr. Orval Eickmeier, brother of the bride. Following the ceremony a reception was held for the guests at Taylor's Auto-Tel, the bride's mother receiving in a pansy crepe dress, and wearing corsage bouquet of Talisman roses. The groom's mother was becomingly gowned in black crepe, with corsage of Premier roses. The happy couple left for a wedding trip to New York City, the bride travelling in a tan and green ensemble, with tan accessories, and pin-stripe top-coat. Mr. and Mrs. Ryerson will reside in Boston.
