Full Text

A very pretty wedding took place in the chapel of St. Columba's United Church, Toronto, on Saturday, April 23rd, when Anne McKay Donaldson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Paterson Donaldson, became the bride of Edward Douglas McAlonen, of Toronto, formerly of Grimsby. The ceremony was conducted by the Rev. D.J. Scoates.

The bride was attended by Miss Marjorie Walker. The groomsman was Clarke Miles, a lifelong friend of the groom. The ushers were Robert Donaldson and Robert Squires.

The bride wore a very pretty dress of pale blue, and carried white gardenias; the bridesmaid was gowned in pale pink, with white and pink roses.

The bride's mother wore grey with navy accessories, and the groom's mother wore grey with pale blue accessories.

The chapel was beautifully decorated with flowers and lighted candles.

A reception followed at Mr. and Mrs. Donaldson's home, 736 Balliol, with about 80 guests present.

The young couple left for Huntsville where they will spend the honeymoon, and on their return will live in Toronto.

Before the ceremony the bride's father, who is soloist in St. Columba's Church, sang "O Perfect Love", and during the signing of the register sang "Until".
