Of interest locally, where the groom's family and his late grandfather, Mr. Robert Parker, were well-known summer residents, was the marriage in St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Toronto, which united in marriage Quevna Yvonne Williams, daughter of Mrs. P. MacMurchy, Toronto, to Donald Sutherland Parker, son of Mrs. C. Parker, also of Toronto. Rev. C.F. Pashler officiated. The bride, given in marriage by her grandfather, Mrs. [sic] J. Williams, wore a gown of pink point d'esprit over heavy white satin made with a small train. She wore a small cap of sweet peas from which fell a shoulder length pink veil and her bouquet was of roses and sweet peas. Mrs. Dougland Fyvie, the bride's only attendant, was gowned in heaven blue chiffon with which she wore a cap of pink sweet peas. Mr. Boris Kenyon was groomsman, and the ushers were Messrs. Stanley Pemberton and A. Hiscock, uncle of the bride. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at Gray Gables, where the bride's mother received wearing a gown of Queen's blue sheer with a corsage of roses. The groom's mother, who also received, was in a pink and gray ensemble and her corsage was of pink roses. The couple left later on a wedding trip to Ottawa and northern points. For travelling the bride donned a dusty rose crepe frock with matching heart shaped felt hat and gray accessories. They will reside in Toronto.
