Full Text

Two prominent Grimsby families were united with the marriage on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock in St. Andrew's Anglican Church of Mary Frances, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tennyson D. Jarvis, of Grimsby, to William Henderson Woolverton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank T. Woolverton of New York and Grimsby. The ceremony was performed against a setting of white gladioli with white candles arranged on the altar and a profusion of white gladioli and palms in the chancel, forming a pretty background. The rector, Rev. J. Allan Ballard, officiated. The wedding music was played by Mr. David Ouchterlong of Toronto.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, made a charming picture in her gown of ivory satin, cut on princess lines. Her heirloom veil of Venetian point was caught by a coronet of pearls and she wore ivory satin slippers. Her bouquet was a sheaf of Calla lilies and her only ornament was the gift of the bridegroom, a diamond and sapphire dinner ring.

Miss Dorothy Metcalfe, as maid of honour and Miss Isobel Wallbridge and Misses Mary and Nancy Newton as bridesmaids, were all gowned alike in period frocks of tafetta with slight trains in various tones of rose ranging in shades from blush pink to American beauty. They wore matching velvet bonnets and gloves and carried quaint nosegays to harmonize with their frocks. Miss Jean Jarvis, sister of the bride, made a charming flower girl in pale pink, a replica of the older attendants, and she also carried a nosegay to match her frock.

Mr. T. Herbert Jarvis of London was the best man and the ushers were Mr. Edward Cook, Ill., Mr. Charles Estill and Mr. William Hein, all of New York.

A reception for 150 guests was held at the residence of the bride's parents, Glenelm, where Mrs. Jarvis, wearing a becoming gown of Amethyst velvet with matching hat, and Mrs. Frank T. Woolverton, the groom's mother, in black crepe with touches of metallic beading and wearing a small black hat with tiny veil, received with the young couple. White and silver appointments were used at the bride's table, together with bowls of pink roses.

Mr. and Mrs. William Henderson Woolverton left later on a trip to New York, the bride travelling in a wool suit in spice shade with moleskin cape and brown and rust accessories.

They will reside at Waverley, New York.
