Multi-coloured chrysanthemums decorated Jordan Station United Church, Sat. afternoon at 4 p.m., November 12th, when Louise Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William I. Smith of Jordan Station was united in marriage to Mr. Gordon Cecil Maycock, son of Mrs. Maycock of Winona and the late W.G. Maycock. Officiating at the ceremony was Rev. Norman Kelly. Mr. A.C. Hannahson was at the organ, while the soloist was Mrs. Harry Watts.

Given in marriage by her father, the lovely bride wore a gown of blush pink, iridescent slipper satin, with fitted bodice, stand up collar, and full length pointed sleeves. A Dutch cap of chantilly lace over satin held her finger-tip veil of imported lace, the gift of her grandmother. She carried a cascade of white chrysanthemums and ivy.

Maid of honour was Miss Marie Stevens, of Vineland, the cousin of the bride, while her two attendants were Miss Joyce Maycock of Winona, and Miss Josephine Blake of Kingston. All were dressed in vintage wine velvet, similarly styled to the bride's gown. Their headdresses were matching bands of feathers, and they carried muffs of white and orchid pompoms. Flower girls were Miss Patricia Holmes, and Miss Beverly Blain, both cousins of the bride, wearing blue faille taffeta frocks with matching pleated halo headdresses, and carried small muffs of pink and white pompoms.

Groomsman was Mr. George Allison of Toronto, while ushers were Mr. William D. Smith and Mr. Ronald Beech of Detroit.

A reception followed the ceremony at the Village Inn, Grimsby, with the bride's mother receiving, wearing a dark brown dress with insets of satin, a small hat of cerise, and a corsage of cerise carnations and white mums. The mother of the groom was wearing hunter green, with a matching hat. Her corsage was of bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.

The couple left for a honeymoon in Montreal, the bride going away in a gray wool dress trimmed with black velvet, black accessories, a small black feathered hat, and a corsage of gardenias on her fur coat. On their return from the honeymoon they will love in Port Credit.
