In St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, on Saturday afternoon, October 18th, at 3:30 o'clock, Rev'd E. Arnold Brooks officiated at the wedding of Luella Beverly, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Solon Burgess, to Mr. Gordon Strathearn Lipsit, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Lipsit, Grimsby.

Chrysanthemums and dahlias in the autumn shades made an effective setting for the occasion. Mr. Kenneth C. Baxter presided at the organ, and accompanied Mr. Harold Jarvis, who sang "The Lord's Prayer" and "O Perfect Love".

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of ivory satin fashioned with fitted bodice, high neckline with band of puffing in bertha effect, and long full skirt. A braided coronet of satin held her veil and she carried Talisman roses and stephanotis.

Attending the bride as maid of honour was Miss Esther Bain, gowned in Florida rose satin made with off-shoulder neckline, tight bodice and full skirt. With this she wore matching mittens and braided coronet, and carried bronze 'mums. Similarly attired, but in pine-bud green and carrying gold 'mums, were the bridesmaids, Miss Mary Bain and Miss Mary Jane Burgess, sister of the bride.

Mr. Ivan Merritt was groomsman, and the ushers were Mr. Kenneth Martin and Mr. Larry Burgess, the bride's brother.

Following the ceremony a reception was held in St. Andrew's Parish Hall, the bride's mother receiving in midnight blue with black and wine accessories, and corsage of roses, assisted by the groom's mother, wearing coral crepe with black accessories and corsage of cream roses.

For travelling the bride wore a green English gabardine suit with brown top-coat and accessories.

On their return they will reside in Grimsby.

Guests were present from Hamilton, Toronto, Sudbury, Vancouver, Rochester and Chicago.
