The Gospel Tabernacle, Winona, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock when Rev. I.C. Wickware united in marriage Winnifred, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Cook, and Mr. Carl E. Mayer, son of Mrs. Mayer and the late Mr. L.H. Mayer, all of Winona.
Potted plants and autumn flowers decorated the church. Prior to the ceremony, Miss E. Shurley, aunt of the groom, who presided at the organ, and Mr. Neil Miller, violinist, rendered several selections and during the signing of the register the musical selection, "O Promise Me", was played.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was lovely in a gown of white satin, with lace jacket. Her veil of silk net was arranged from a coronet of bridal wreath and she carried a bouquet of Killarney Roses.
Miss Muriel Cook, sister of the bride, was gowned in pink chiffon, with matching accessories and she carried a bouquet of Briarcliff roses.
Assisting the groom was Mr. George Cook of Winona, and the ushers were Messrs. Allan Miller and Charles Gardner.
Following the ceremony, a reception for 40 guests was held at the Corner House, Hamilton, when the bride's mother, wearing black sheer crepe trimmed with cut velvet and the groom's mother also in black, received with the young couple.
Mr. and Mrs. Mayer left later on a wedding trip to Peterboro, the bride travelling in a blue frock, blue velvet hat and black fur coat.
On their return they will reside in Winona.
