Full Text

The United Church Parsonage at Winona was the scene of a beautiful wedding last Saturday afternoon when Verna, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Jacobs of Fruitland, became the bride of Mr. Roy Lester, son of Mrs. Thomas Lester and the late Mr. Lester. Officiating at the ceremony was Rev. G.E. Morrow. The bride was gowned in powder blue crepe with lace insets, and wearing a headdress with shoulder length veil, also white accessories. A corsage of pink roses with white carnations formed her bridal bouquet. Mrs. W. Chappell was matron-of-honour, and was the sister of the bride. She was dressed in the palest pink crepe, with pink picture hat trimmed with mohair, and carried yellow roses. The groomsman was Mr. W. Chappell.

A reception was later held at the Pines Hotel for the immediate family. The bride's mother was gowned in pale blue flowered jersey with black accessories, with a corsage of white carnations. The groom's mother was in dark blue jersey with black accessories and wore a corsage of white carnations. Present also at the wedding was Mrs. B. Elliot, aunt of the groom, who wore a pink dress with black accessories, and a corsage of deep pink roses.

Immediately after the reception the young couple left on a honeymoon in London and points north.
