Fulton officiated. … The bride, who was given away by her father, was gowned in white crepe-de-chine and georgette. She wore a Juliette cap of crossed satin ribbon, and her embroidered tulle veil was held in place by a spray of orange buds. Her shower bouquet of roses and sweet peas was a gift of the bridegroom. The reception was held at the Royal Hotel. Arum lilies and Iceland poppies graced the tables which were laden with the choicest of wines, spirits, sandwiches, cakes and sweets, the whole spread being the dernier cri in the culinary art and reflects infinite credit on the hostess of the Royal – Mrs. R. N. Carden. The bridegroom’s present to the bride was a xylonite toilet set and that of the bride to the bridegroom a handsome gold albert.
