A pretty June wedding took place in St. John's Church, Winona, on Wednesday afternoon when Rev. H.A. West united in marriage Alma Kathleen, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.W.F. Carpenter, Grimsby, to Mr. Kenneth E. Whyte, son of Mr. and Mrs. George C. Whyte, of Grimsby. The church was artistically decorated by the choir members with pink and white peonies, the guest pews being tied with white satin ribbon and orange blossoms. Mr. Harry C. Campbell played the wedding march and during the signing of the register the choir sang "Oh, Perfect Love", the solo part being taken by Miss Florence Mackay.

The bride was given away by her father, and looked charming in a quaint costume of white silk net with graduated widths of satin ribbon. She carried a shower bouquet of Columbia roses with streamers of white tulle. She was attended by Mrs. R.A. Forbes, of Tilbury, as matron of honour, who wore a dainty costume of printed crepe de chine made in the same quaint Quaker style as was the bride's gown. She carried a shower of long-spurred white aquilegia, pink pyrethrum and white tulle. Mr. Hugh White was best man and Mr. George Nelles was usher. After the ceremony a reception was held at Pinehurst, where the spacious rooms were transformed into a bower of flowers. The bride and groom left on a motor trip. The bride's going-away costume was a three-piece suit of beige tricotine, combined with Paisley crepe de chine in lettuce tones. She wore a French hat in the same shade.
