Morenci, Mich., Sept. 17 – A most beautiful wedding occurred on Wednesday at noon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Cosper Rorick, when their daughter, Leila, was united in marriage to Mr. Albert Foster. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Trevor C. Jones in the presence of a large number of guests, all of whom, however, were immediate relatives or near friends of the contracting parties.
The color scheme of the decorations was green and white, and was carried out in white asters, white carnations, lilies, and smilax; while just back of the improvised altar was a massive bank of palms. The bride was dressed in cream crepe de chine and carried a shower bouquet of white rosebuds. She was attended by her cousins, Miss Irene Jewett, of Dayton, O., and Miss Bessie Bennett, of Detroit. These bridesmaids were becomingly gowned in white, and carried shower bouquets of pink roses. Mr. Shirley Foster, brother of the groom, acted as best man, while Dr. Ewart and Mr. Norman Horton did duty as ushers.
Following the ceremony an elegant four course dinner was served, Mrs. Miller, of Adrian, being the caterer, while Jackson’s orchestra, of the same city, discoursed sweet music.
The gifts were numerous and costly, consisting mainly of cut-glass, silver, china and linen. Among these were a set of solid silver all in the same pattern, of knives, forks, tea, dessert and table spoons, oyster forks, from the immediate family of the bride, and one hundred dollars in gold from Mr. Oscar Foster, the groom’s father.
Mr. and Mrs. Foster left on the afternoon car for Toledo, Detroit, and other points of interest. After their return they will reside in their new home on East street, which is already prepared for their occupancy. Mrs. Foster is a graduate of Adrian college, and was for the last two years a teacher in our public schools, where her work was of a very high order. Socially she is much admired and greatly esteemed for her many excellent qualities. Mr. Foster is cashier of the First National bank, which position he has held for four years. He is a young man of excellent business qualities and a great favorite in society.
The guests from out of town were Mr. Horton Rorick, wife and daughter; Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Spitzer, Toledo; Mrs. Rorick Bennett and daughters, Mrs. Willis Clark, Miss Bessie Bennett, Detroit; Mrs. Dr. Jewett and daughter, Irene, of Dayton, O.; Mr. George Horton and family, Fruit Ridge; Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Porter, Packard; Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Foster, Mr. and Mrs. Byron Foster, Mr. and Mrs. Will Foster, Shirley Foster, Orlin Rumsey, Mrs. and Miss Carmichael, Hudson.
