Full Text

A pretty autumn wedding took place at St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, on Saturday, October 18, when Marjorie Doris Dorety, eldest daughter of Mrs. John Mecker, of Preston, Ont., was married to Robert Frank Hitchman of Hamilton, by Rev. F.S. Milliken. The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her grandfather, Mr. J.L. Snyder, looked charming in a gown of cocoa pin-tucked georgette, with lace trimming, black velvet hat and carried a shower bouquet of Butterfly roses and lily of the valley. The bridesmaid, Miss Florence Norton, wore a gown of blue cut velvet, and black velvet hat, and carried a bouquet of Columbia roses. Mr. William Baisley, of Winona, acted as best man.

Just before the wedding ceremony the choir sang "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden", and during the signing of the register Miss Olive Kitchen sang "Because".

The groom's gift to the bride was a string of pearls, to the bridesmaid a silver mesh bag, and to the best man gold cuff links.

After the ceremony the happy couple left on a motor trip to Albian, Rochester and other eastern points. The bride's travelling costume was navy blue tricotine, black velvet hat and brown fox fur. Upon their return they will reside in Grimsby.
