A double ring ceremony took place in Delta United Church, Hamilton, on Saturday afternoon, September 27th, at 3 o'clock, when Mary Evelyn, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew S. Bain, Grimsby, became the bride of Ralph Lewis Hillgartner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Hillgartner, Binbrook. The Rev. C.F. Gilbury officiated.

Given away by her father, the bride was gowned in white tulle over satin, worn with a veil, and her flowers were a cascade of miniature white chrysanthemums with stephanotis.

Her attendants wore bouffant frocks of net over taffeta, and carried cascades of yellow and bronze chrysanthemums. Miss Sheila Bain, twin sister of the bride, was maid of honor, and was in coral net over taffeta, as was Mrs. Strathearn Lipsitt; Miss Jean Shaw, and Mrs. John Brady (Dorothy Bain) were in apple green net.

Mr. John Laidman was best man, while the ushers were Messrs. Douglas and William Bain and Harry Hillgartner, brothers of the bride and groom.

White gladioli formed the floral setting for the ceremony. Mrs. Florence Bissex was organist and Mr. Wilfred Reed the soloist.

The bridal party was piped from the church by two sisters of the bride, Mrs. Robert Button (Esther) and Miss Catherine Bain, wearing kilts of Royal Stewart plaid.

Eighty-five guests attended the reception at the Ottawa Street Y.W.C.A. The mother of the bride received in rose and blue with grey hat and a corsage of pink roses. The groom's mother as in dove grey with a rose corsage.

For the honeymoon trip to Ottawa and Montreal the bride travelled in a knitted suit of dawn blue with black accessories and small blue feather hat.

On their return they will reside in Hamilton.
