The Ottawa Citizen, Thursday, July 1st - A wedding of interest to many friends in musical and church circles was solemnized yesterday afternoon at the home of the bride's mother, where Irene Kyle Miller, daughter of Mrs. Miller and the late John E. Miller, became the bride of Rev. F.S. Milliken, minister of Stewarton United Church. Miss Miller is well known in musical circles in Ottawa. Dr. Milliken is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Milliken of Strathroy, Ont.

Rev. Clarke Logan of Toronto officiated.

Given in marriage by her mother, the bride was attended by her sister, Mrs. James W. Kennedy of Toronto. Keith Milliken was best man for his father.

Wedding music was played by W. Allister Crandall, and during the signing of the register, Mrs. H.S. Britton sang "I'll Walk Beside You through the Coming Years".

White delphinium and fern formed the setting for the ceremony. For her marriage the bride wore a floor-length gown of powder blue lace designed with three-quarter length sleeves, a pointed neckline, draped waist and graceful skirt. She wore a close fitting flowered hat and carried an arm bouquet of pink roses, blue delphinium and bouvardia.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home. The toast to the bride was proposed by J.B. Phair.

Later Dr. and Mrs. Milliken left for a wedding trip to the Laurentians. Travelling, Mrs. Milliken wore a powder blue crepe dress, grey hat, topcoat and shoes.

Dr. and Mrs. Milliken will reside at 238 Argyle Avenue, Ottawa.

Dr. Milliken was the minister of St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, in 1925, when Church Union came into effect.
