Full Text

The Fifty United church Wednesday afternoon was the scene of a very pretty wedding, when Merle Eileen, only daughter of the late John and Mrs. Downs, Winona, became the bride of Courtland LeRoy Meyers, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Meyers, of Hamilton, Rev. J.W. Hunt performing the ceremony. The bride, charmingly gowned in powder blue canton crepe, with hat to match, and carrying a bouquet of bride's roses, was given in marriage by her mother, who wore black satin-faced canton crepe, trimmed with fur. Miss Marjory McKenzie, as bridesmaid, wore a becoming frock of sand-colored French georgette, with hat to match. Frank Downs, brother of the bride, assisted the groom. Mrs. J.W. Hunt, at the organ, played Mendelssohn's Wedding March. The ushers were George Hogan and Thomas Eccles.

Following the ceremony, a buffet luncheon was served at the bride's home, where the guests numbered about 60. The toast to the bride was proposed by Rev. Mr. Vipond, of Hamilton, and among the speakers were Rev. J.W. Hunt and Amos Vipond. The groom's gift to the bride was a platinum ring, to the bridesmaid a gold vanity case, to the groomsman a gold watch chain, and to Mrs. Hunt, organist, a gold bar pin. Mr. and Mrs. Meyers left by motor on an extended honeymoon, after which they will reside in Hamilton.
