In Trinity United Church, Grimsby, on Saturday, May 27th, at 4 p.m., the marriage took place of Willa Gertrude Pettit, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Pettit, of Wilsonville, Ont., and Tracy McCall Haynie, of Ypsilanti, Michigan, son of Mrs. Carrie Haynie, Marshall, North Carolina. The Rev. R.K. Lemkay conducted the ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of ivory satin with Chinese neckline and epaulettes of ivory satin, made with a full skirt gathered to the fitted bodice and falling in a long train. Her fingertip veil of tulle was held in place by a coronet of slipper satin, trimmed with orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of Talisman roses and lilies of the valley.

Miss Alice Neale, R.N., as maid of honour, wore a pale yellow marquisette gown with matching picture hat and carried a nosegay of mauve sweet peas.

The two bridesmaids, Misses Erla Fleming, R.N., of Hamilton, and Jean Haist, R.N., of Honolulu, were gowned alike in pale blue marquisette with matching picture hats. Each carried a nosegay of pink sweet peas.

Brian Konkle, wearing grey flannels and navy jacket, was the ring bearer.

The best man was Mr. Donald Pettit, brother of the bride, of St. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec. Mr. Glenn Pettit, Hamilton and Mr. Lewis Puddicombe, Winona, served as ushers.

Mr. T.L. Dymond played the wedding music, and Miss Gwen McKay, R.N., Buffalo, N.Y., sang "I'll Walk Beside You" during the signing of the register. Apple blossoms, and white and mauve lilacs decorated the church for the occasion. Eighty-five guests attended the wedding.

The bride's mother wore a navy suit with pink accessories and corsage of pink camellias. Mrs. Reginald Haist, Niagara Falls, acting in the absence of the groom's mother, wore a grey dress with navy accessories. Her corsage was yellow rosebuds.

For the wedding trip down the Atlantic coastline and through the southern states, the bride wore a navy suit, with navy straw cloche hat, with white accessories and corsage of gardenias.

Mr. and Mrs. Haynie will make their home in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
