Full Text

In a pretty ceremony conducted at the rectory of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, Grimsby, last Friday evening, at 8 o'clock, Father B.I. Webster officiated at the wedding which united in marriage Christine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Reise, of Brantford, to Private Gordon W. Craig, of the R.C.A.S.C, now stationed at Camp Borden, son of Mrs. H. Schott, Niagara Falls, Ontario. The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of pink crepe, with which she wore white accessories. Her corsage was of pink roses. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hurst, Grimsby, attended the couple, the latter wearing an attractive frock of blue chiffon, with beige accessories and a corsage of Talisman roses. An after-reception for 20 guests was held at the home of the groom's grandmother, Mrs. Annie Phipps, Ontario Street. The bride's table was centered with the wedding cake, while tall tapers in silver holders were used in the table decoration. Bouquets of gladioli effectively decorated the rooms. Private and Mrs. Craig left later to spend their honeymoon in Niagara Falls.
