St. Clair Avenue United Church, Toronto, was the scene of the interesting wedding Saturday afternoon, at 4 o'clock, when Carolyn Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lionel Wilson, Toronto, was united in marriage to Mr. Andrew Wallace Smith, Hamilton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Smith, Grimsby. The double-ring ceremony was conducted by the Rev. A.E.Kewley, Toronto.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride was lovely in a white crepe gown, fashioned with fitted bodice, the yoke edged with a lace-trimmed fold of crepe, and the full skirt draped into a short train. The long sleeves were also edged with matching lace. A bandeau of flowers held in place her fingertip veil, and she carried a cascade bouquet in white and pastel tones.

The matron of honour was Mrs. H.E. Dorland, whose gown was of blue satin with net insertions at the neck and in the draped skirt tapering to a point at the back, and her tiara headdress was of flowers harmonizing with her bouquet of white with touches of blue and pink.

Mr. H.E. Dorland, Hamilton, was groomsman, while those ushering were Mr. Jack Culverwell, Weston, and Mr. W.D.L. Wheeler, Toronto.

Mr. George Marks, as soloist, rendered The Lord's Prayer and I'll Walk Beside You, with Mr. Myrl Koeffer at the organ. Mr. Koeffer also played Debussy's Reverie.

Sixty guests were received at the reception afterward. Coral crepe made with a tiered skirt, and black straw hat with matching accessories, and roses and bouvardia in her corsage, was worn by the bride's mother, while Mrs. Smith, mother of the groom, was in grey crepe, with touches of pink, her grey hat also trimmed with pink, and her flowers were pink roses and pink carnations.

After a honeymoon trip to Washington, D.C., the couple will reside in Hamilton. For travelling, the bride wore a Burgundy gabardine suit, with grey felt hat, and grey blouse and gloves, while her bag and shoes matched her suit. Her flowers were orchids.
