Full Text

St. Johns Church, Winona, was the scene of a charming wedding on Saturday afternoon, August 15, at 3 o'clock, when Verna Hazel, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Harper, became the bride of Gerald Reid Simpson, eldest son of the late Dr. Simpson, and of Mrs. Gray, of Grimsby. The bride, given in marriage by her father, was very attractive in a French gown of white georgette, and veil caught with orange blossoms. Her bouquet was of roses, lily of the valley and baby's breath. Miss Isabel Woolverton, of Grimsby, frocked in peach georgette, with picture hat to match, and bouquet of sweetheart roses and lily of the valley, attended the bride, and Ted Rae was best man. The ushers were Stuart Fielding, St. Catharines, and Wallace Pearson, Toronto. Miss Reta Thomas was at the organ. A reception at the home of the bride's parents followed the ceremony, Mrs. Harper receiving in a smart gown of black georgette, with corsage bouquet of mauve sweet peas. Mrs. Gray was becomingly gowned in green georgette, with fox fur. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson left later for a honeymoon trip by motor to Cleveland and Detroit, the bride travelling in a beige gown of crepe de chine, with coat of beige ottaman, fur-trimmed, and hat to match. The groom's gift to the bride was a handsome diamond ring. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson will reside in Grimsby.
