On Saturday, July 7th, Margery May Pullen, only daughter of Mrs. Flossie Pullen, Woodstock. Ont., was united in marriage to John Edward Brubaker, Beamsville, formerly of Woodstock. Chalmers United Church, Woodstock, was the scene of the wedding, with Rev. Sterling J. Kitchen officiating.

The bride was given in marriage by her cousin, Gerald Campbell, of Hickson. She wore a floor-length gown of white velvaray, embossed with lily of the valley and orchids, over taffeta, bouffant skirt, short puff sleeves and Peter Pan collar. She wore a veil of illusion net with headdress of starlite roses, and carried a bouquet of Pink Delight roses, stephanotis and adiantum fern.

Miss Marion Crewson, of Brantford, as maid of honour, wore a floor-length gown of blue marquisette over orchid taffeta with matching headdress and gloves. She carried a nosegay of mauve sweet peas, yellow Gloria roses and adiantum fern in a yellow malline frill.

The bridesmaid, Miss Eleanor Jackson, Willow Lake Park, wore orchid marquisette over blue taffeta. Her flowers matched those of the maid of honour. The flower girl, wee Joyce Campbell, of Hickson, cousin of the bride, wore a dainty long frock of yellow frosted organdy and matching headdress. Her flowers were pink and mauve sweet peas and Briarcliffe roses.

The groom was attended by his brother, Ross Brubaker, of Toronto, and the ushers were Ward Brubaker, Beamsville, and William Fellows, Guelph.

The church was effectively decorated for the occasion with palms, ferns, and tall standards of white gladioli and carnations. Lighted tapers gave a finishing touch. The wedding music was by Mr. Clarence Oerton, organist of the church, and Mr. Harry Brown, of Tavistock, sang.

A reception was held in Chalmers Church Hall for about 65 guests. The bride's mother received in a blue sheer gown with pale yellow accessories and corsage of Talisman roses. The groom's mother wore figured nylon with white accessories. Her corsage was of red roses. Out-of-town guest were from Akron, Ohio, Toronto, Ottawa, London, Guelph, Kitchener, Brantford, Stratford, Embro, Hickson, Swenburg and Tavistock.

For the wedding trip the bride wore a turquoise sheer dress, white coat and white accessories, with corsage of Better Times roses. Mr. and Mrs. Brubaker will reside at the groom's farm, R.R.1, Beamsville.
