Full Text

Decorated with pink and white blossoms, Trinity United Church, Grimsby, was on Saturday, the 15th, the scene of a pretty Maytime wedding, when Esther Margaret, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew S. Bain, became the bride of Mr. Robert Lorne Button, son of Mr. and Mrs. Reginald J. Button, Hamilton. The officiating minister was Rev. A.L. Griffith.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin with overskirt of nylon falling into a train. The neckline and bodice were ornamented with beaded flowers, and the long veil held in place by a circlet of tiny flowers. She carried pink and rust Johnanna Hill roses.

Her attendants were his sister, Miss Dorothy Bain, as maid of honour, Mrs. Strathearn Lipsitt, Miss Phyllis Garland and Miss Audrey Button, the groom's sister, as bridesmaids. They were gowned similarly in pink and in blue sheer, with draped folds across bodice and long peplums at waistline, matching picture hats and carried blue and pink carnations.

The groom was supported by Mr. William Harris, while the ushers were his brother, Mr. John Button and Mr. Douglas Bain and Mr. William Bain, brothers of the bride.

During the signing of the register, Mr. Duncan Campbell sang "I'll Walk Beside You", accompanied by Mr. Donald Kennedy.

The bride's mother wore blue crepe with wide black hat and corsage of pink roses, while the groom's mother wore blue silk with small flowered hat, corsage of pink roses and furs.

After a reception at "Fairhaven", the young couple left for a trip to Detroit, Cleveland and other points, the bride wearing a blue gabardine suit, with black hat and accessories. Upon their return, they will live at "Fairhaven".
