Full Text

A quiet wedding was solemnized on Thursday, September 18, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. A.P. Norton, 6 Ontario street, Grimsby, when their eldest daughter, Frances Elma, was united in marriage to George Ransome Konkle, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Konkle, Beamsville.

To the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march played by Miss Grace Norton, sister of the bride, the bride entered the drawing room, accompanied by her father.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. Thomas Richards, pastor of Grimsby Baptist Church.

The bride was prettily gowned in pale green silk pebble crepe, with silver trimmings, and carried a shower bouquet.

Mrs. Glenn Harrod, cousin of the bride, was matron of honor and wore cocoa French crepe, while Mr. Glenn Harrod attended the groom.

The gifts were beautiful and numerous, showing the high esteem in which the young couple were held.

After a dainty luncheon the happy couple left amid showers of rice and confetti for Toronto and points east. Upon their return they will reside in Beamsville.
