James Street Baptist Church, Hamilton, was the scene Saturday afternoon of a pretty wedding, when Miss Mabel Audrey Brown became the bride of Mr. William Arthur Hewson, Rev. W.W. McMaster officiating. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Brown, 148 Gage Avenue South, Hamilton, and the groom is the son of Reeve and Mrs. A. Hewson of Grimsby.
The church was attractively decorated with ferns and baskets of hawthorn and bridal wreath. The bride, who entered the church accompanied by her father, was gowned in a French frock of poudre bleu georgette, hand-embroidered in sunset shades. She wore a georgette hat of delicate pink and carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses, valley lilies and maidenhair ferns. Miss Elva Brown, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid, and wore a quaint form of rose-colored flat crepe, with apron and fischu of Brussels lace. Her hat was of grey georgette, and she carried a bouquet of mauve sweet peas. Mr. Charles Mullett, of Buffalo, was the best man. Mrs. Brown, mother of the bride, wore a handsome gown of black georgette, jade trimmed, with hat to match. Her corsage bouquet was of sweet peas and roses. The groom's mother wore a black and gold dress, with hat to match, and corsage bouquet of sweet peas. Mr. Cyril Rice, formerly of this city, but now of New York, sang very appropriately during the service. Miss Florence Clark played the wedding march. After the ceremony a reception was held at the bride's home, 148 Gage Avenue south. Mr. and Mrs. Hewson received the guests in the rooms, prettily decorated in marguerites and yellow iris. About 100 guests were present, and Miss Agnes Hewson, a sister of the groom; Miss Doris Allen, of Detroit, a cousin of the bride; Miss Cora McCrae and Miss Dorothy Carey assisted in serving the buffet luncheon.
