An exceptionally pretty home wedding took place this morning at 11 o’clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jansen Bross, 6 Lyman street, when Miss Lillian Mae Garrabrant, daughter of Mrs. Maude Bross Garrabrant, was united in marriage to Stanley Thomas Boyce, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel C. Boyce, of Matamoras.
The event was of double interest, as it was the forty-eighth wedding anniversary of the bride’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jansen Bross.
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Charles M. Ackerman, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, in the presence of only the immediate families of the bride and groom.
The bride, who was charmingly attired in a gown of white mattelasse silk with pearl trimmings and a tulle veil fastened with pearls and carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses, was given away by her grandfather, Mr. Jansen Bross. Her maid of honor and only attendant was her sister, Miss Charlotte Maude Garrabrant, whose frock was of peach colored chiffon over satin, and who carried a shower bouquet of pink roses. Harold Kennedy Boyce, the groom’s brother, acted as best man.
An informal reception followed the ceremony, during which the bride’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jansen Bross, also received the congratulations of the guests and occupied seats of honor at the bride’s table, which was prettily decorated in pink and white, with a kewpie bride as a center piece and two large wedding cakes, which were cut respectively by the brides of 1875 and 1923. The wedding breakfast was served by Miss Maude Knight and Miss Gladys Bell, of this city, and Miss Gladys Cole of Matamoras.
Mr. and Mrs. Boyce, who are well known members of the younger set and who have many friends in this city, were the recipients of many gifts of cut glass, silver, china and linen. They left town on Train 4 for a trip East and on their return will reside at 24 Kingston avenue.
