Full Text

St. Mary's Church, Grimsby, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock, when Father Hlatkie, of Welland, united in marriage Katherine Smeryk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. Smeryk of Grimsby, to Gordon M. Palmer of Quil Lake, Saskatchewan.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was attractive in a bridal gown of white satin, with lace trim, over which fell her veil of matching lace, and she carried a bouquet of white roses and baby's breath.

Miss Doris Andreychuk and Miss Anne Smeryk, of Grimsby, as bridesmaids, were both dressed in pink organdy, and each carried a bouquet of pink carnations. Victoria Palmer and Vera Nikolishin, her flower girls, carried baskets of sweet peas and lilies of the valley. The groomsmen were Mr. Michael Leskov of St. Catharines and Mr. Walter Krajeski, of Grimsby.

A reception for many friends was held at St. Mary's Hall following the ceremony, after which the couple left by motor for a trip through Northern Ontario.

On their return they will spend some time in Grimsby before leaving to take up residence at his home at Quil Lake, Sask. Guests were present from Toronto, Oshawa and Hamilton.
