Rev. Edward Morris, Rector of St. Matthias Church, officiated at the marriage, at a quarter past two o’clock this afternoon, in St. Matthias Church, of two estimable and popular young people. Hilda Florence, daughter of Mrs. Ada and the late Willoughby Dooks, 231 North Street, and Angus Kirby, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Crawford, Lunenburg.

The church was thronged with friends to witness the tying of the nuptial knot, the organist and choir being in attendance, and the church being beautifully decorated, the choir and Chancel Guild having undertaken this work as a labor of affection. As the bridal party entered the hymn, ” The Voice that Breathed O’er Eden” was sung, the bride being given in marriage by her brother, Lester Dooks. She was a most charming young figure in a gown of beige georgette worn with model hat of the same color, her bouquet being a shower bouquet of Ophelia roses, sweet peas and snapdragon. Her sole attendant was her little sister, Miss Helen Dooks, the child being a bonnie figure in a frock of pale pink crepe de chine, worn with pink poke bonnet from which her sweet face emerged with a flowerlike freshness.

Immediately after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Crawford left for Lunenburg, where the honeymoon will be spent, and the best wishes of all who know them follow them thither. On their return to the city they will make their home at 21 Church street.

The collection of wedding gifts was a large one, including a chest of flat silver presented by the National Fish Comapny and the members of its office staff, the bride also having been tendered two showers by her associates of the staff, of which she was a highly valued member.

Vintage Mary Martin Florida Dress – Very Golden Girls’ Blanche Devereaux!
So colorful and pretty! Perfect for a Luau or Tiki Party or whenever you want to feel fresh and beautiful! 😉
The size tag has been removed but there are some numbers handwritten on the back of the tag which leads me to believe this was considered a size 14. I would say it is a modern medium.
