A PLEASING CEREMONY AT THE BRIDE’S HOME.
Music, Flowers and Friends Lend Attractiveness to the Occasion.
Mr. David Rorick and Miss Mina I. Smith were united in marriage at the residence of the bride’s mother in north San Bernardino Tuesday.
The house had been tastefully decorated for the occasion, and when at 2 o’clock Rev. David Walk took his place in the parlor and the air was filed [sic] with the Lohengrin march, to the friends present the scene was an impressive one. The bridegroom was accompanied by Geo. L. Smith of Colton as “best man” and the bride by Miss Zelma Smith, also of Colton as bridesmaid.
After the ceremony a wedding dinner was served and the newly wedded couple took the evening train for San Diego, where they will remain a week, returning to San Bernardino, where they will reside in the future. Both of the contracting parties are well known in this city. For some time Miss Smith has been the popular agent of Arrowhead station, and Mr. Rorick is an old time Santa Fe railroad employee.
The music was one of the most enjoyable features of the ceremony, being furnished by Mrs. Killifer of Los Angeles and Professor Erbe. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. Cook, Mr. and Mrs. Killifer, Miss Mary Allison, Miss Zelma Smith, Mr. C.L. Allison, Mr. George Smith and visiting relatives.
