At a double-ring ceremony in St. Paul's United Church, Hamilton, on Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the Rev. F.M. Ellis united in marriage Marilyn Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin G. Besse, and John Kapusty, Hamilton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Kapusty, Grimsby.
The bride, whose father gave her away, was attended by Mrs. Bert Goodwin, of Elmira, and Mrs. Norman Allen, of Dundas, cousin of the bride, and Miss Christena Aitchison, of Drayton, cousin of the bride, as flower girl, while Master Andrew Aitchison, another cousin, was ring-bearer. Mr. Geo. Kapusty, Grimsby, was his brother's best man, while Messrs. Norman Allen and Bert Goodwin were ushers.
Gowned in white satin with a basque bodice and long sleeves of lace, and the skirt falling in unpressed pleats into a cathedral train, the bride was wearing an apple blossom tiara and a finger-tip illusion veil. She carried red roses. Her matron of honour was in daffodil nylon net over taffeta with a bolero and carried bronze and gold chrysanthemums; Mrs. Allen was in turquoise taffeta with a matching headdress and carried a nosegay of autumn flowers, and the flower girl was dressed in mauve satin with matching bonnet and mittens trimmed with velvet, and she carried a basket of yellow chrysanthemums.
Autumn flowers brightened the church. Miss Bessie Ritchie was organist, and Mrs. Ethel Gauen sang.
The reception for 145 guests was held at the Winter Gardens, the bride's mother receiving in Kingfisher blue with touches of navy and a red rose corsage, while the groom's mother was wearing black and silver striped taffeta and her flowers were pink roses.
Leaving for their wedding trip, the bride was wearing a navy costume with winter white topcoat and red carnation corsage. On return from a trip to the United States, the couple will live at 775 Rennie Avenue, Hamilton.
