Full Text

On Saturday, September 1st, at 3 o'clock, a pretty wedding was solemnized at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Stevens, when their youngest daughter, Dolly, became the bride of Mr. Harvey Shafer, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Con. Shafer, Grimsby, Rev. Mr. Cooper, of Beamsville, officiating. The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was very charming in a gown of ivory canton crepe, trimmed with pearls, and tulle veil with bandeau. She carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses, lilies of the valley and maidenhair fern. Miss Margaret Stevens, in orange georgette, and carrying Ophelia roses, attended her cousin as maid of honor; and Mr. William Shafer, brother of the groom, was best man. Miss Arnetta Shafer, sister of the groom, played the wedding music. The living room was tastefully decorated in asters, ferns and roses. Following the ceremony, a wedding supper was served to about 50 guests. The groom's gift to the bride was a pair of gold and pearl earrings and a cutglass flower basket; to the maid of honor, a bracelet; to the best man, a pair of gold cuff links, and to the pianist, a pendant. The bride went away in a navy suit, hat to match, and a sable choker. On their return from the east the couple will reside on Nelles Blvd., Grimsby.
