St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, was the scene of the wedding of Florence, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Sims, Grimsby, to Edmund L. Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Smith, Niagara Falls, Ont. The Rev. E.A. Brooks officiated. Soloist was Mr. H. Jarvis, Grimsby, and the choir sang during the service, with Mrs. Duncan McIntosh at the organ.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in white bridal satin, fashioned with tight bodice and nylon yoke, the skirt falling into a graceful train. Her floor-length veil was adorned by a coronet of orange blossoms. She carried Garnet rosettes and stephanotis.

Miss Jean Blackmore, maid of honour, wore apple-green nylon marquisette over silk. The tightly fitted bodice was accented by the fullness of the frilly bouffant skirt. She carried yellow roses.

The flower girls, Misses Anne and Beatrice Morley, nieces of the bride, wore yellow and mauve organdy over taffeta. They carried nosegays of Pinnochio roses. Bruce MacLeod, of Niagara Falls, was best man. Ushers were Weldon Shultz and James Robinson, both of Niagara Falls, Ont.

The flowers in the church were gladioli and delphiniums.

A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents for 75 guests, the bride's mother receiving in a copper-top crepe dress with black accessories. Her corsage was of pink carnations. The groom's mother was attired in black sheer with black and white accessories, her corsage being yellow roses.

For going away, the bride chose a yellow gabardine suit, yellow feather hat, and brown accessories. Talisman roses formed her corsage. After their wedding trip to Muskoka, the couple will reside at 199 William St., Beamsville.

Out-of-town guests were present from Hamilton, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and Beamsville.
