Full Text

The marriage took place in St. Giles United Church, Hamilton, on Thursday evening, of Jessie, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Dawson, Houghton Avenue, Hamilton, to Mr. James Lawrence Foster, youngest son of Mrs. Foster and the late M.J. Foster, of Grimsby.

The bride entered the church with her father, as the Lohengrin wedding music was played by Mr. Egerton Boyce. A modish gown of imported crepe in Spanish rust shade, with long skirt forming a slight train, was worn by the bride. She wore a brown straw hat with becoming small brim, brown accessories and corsage of Talisman roses.

Miss Doris Dawson, bridesmaid for her sister, was gowned in French blue, wore accessories in harmonizing tones and a shoulder bouquet of pale pink roses. Mr. Harold Brierley was best man. Mrs. Dawson, mother of the bride, wore a gown of hunter's green, a French hat of black straw, black accessories and Sweetheart roses. Following the church ceremony an informal reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, the bridal pair leaving later to spend several days in Toronto, going on to the eastern provinces for a honeymoon. For travelling, the bride wore a three-piece ensemble of brown woolen cloth in swagger style. Mr. and Mrs. Foster will live in Hamilton.
