At the home of Mrs. Richard McInerny at 696 F street, the marriage of Miss Maureen Eileen McInerny and David Rorick of Nevada and Oceanside, was impressively solemnized Monday afternoon at four o’clock, by the Rev. Father Patrick Dunne of St. Bernardine Catholic church.
The company present numbered only immediate members of the families of the principals and intimate friends. The date for the ceremony was July fourth, the birthday of the bride’s father, the late Richard McInerny, well-known early merchant of the city. The bride is a native daughter of San Bernardino and Mr. Rorick is of Oceanside, where both families have had summer homes for a number of years.
The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Margaret Clare McInerny and given in marriage by her brother, Richard McInerny. The friend standing with Mr. Rorick was Harry Hargraves of Bakersfield.
The setting for the bridal group was a lovely arrangement of white gladioli and the glorified Shasta daisies, the bride wearing an exquisitely dainty gown of white embroidered batiste, without ornament, and carrying a shower bouquet of bouvardia.
The bride’s sister, her only attendant, wore marquisette In pale gray over pink and for flowers held a nosegay of pink blooms. Mrs. McInerny, the bride’s mother, wore a navy blue sheer with white flowers in a corsage.
Following the ceremony a buffet supper was served, with the bride cutting the traditional decorated cake, her special privilege.
With felicitations from all filling the air, Mr. and Mrs. Rorick left on a wedding trip, declining to announce the destination, the lovely bride donning a suit of heavy crepe in Tapestry pink, with white accessories, and hat and top coat, for the motor journey.
