Married at Westville:
One of the prettiest home weddings of the season occurred Thursday evening, Sept. 14, 1899, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. PIFER, in Westville, when their daughter, Edith M., was united in marriage to Mr. Geo. H. WARNER, a well-to-do farmer of Berlin. The bride was tastefully dressed (in) white satin with pearl trimmings, carrying a bouquet of bridal roses, while the groom was dressed in the usual black. They were attended by the bride’s sister, Leona L. and Mr. Will ADGATE of Berlin. At eight o’clock sharp, the groom and bride marched to the beautiful strains of the wedding march played by Miss Edith ALLEN and stood under the wedding bell of white and gold trimmings, the ceremony being performed by Rev. F. E. STOWELL, the bride’s uncle. After the usual congratulations the large company of invited guests marched to the beautifully decorated dining room and partook of a bountiful supper. They received many beautiful and costly presents too numerous to mention. Mr. and Mrs. WARNER will be at home to their friends at their residence in Berlin after Oct. 6. – ONE WHO WAS THERE.
