Walsh - Armstrong
The residence of William Armstrong, Niagara Fruit Farm, was the scene of one of the prettiest weddings in this locality for many years, when his daughter, Miss Isabella Maude Armstrong, became the wife of William Herbert Walsh of Auburn, N. Y. The ceremony was very nicely performed by Rev. Mr. Laidman, pastor of the Methodist Church, St. Davids. The bride was given in marriage by her father. The bride was attired in a princess gown of Swiss muslin, and carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses, and was attended by Miss Ella Walsh of Hamilton, who wore a pretty gown of pale blue silk. The best man was Arthur Armstrong, brother of the bride. At precisely one o'clock, the guests formed an aisle for the approach of the wedding party, who entered the beautifully decorated parlor to the strains of Mendelssohn wedding march, played by Mrs. S. A. Laidman.
After the ceremony a reception to the 30 guests who were all relatives was followed by the wedding dinner, which was served by Mrs. A. Stringer and daughter, Miss Edith. The tables were nicely decorated with red and white carnations, red and white roses. A photo of the wedding table and guests was taken by Homan Armstrong. Toasts were given by W. H. Walsh to the bride, Arthur Armstrong to the bridesmaid, William Armstrong to our host.
The out of town guests were Mrs. E. Durham of Warren, Pa.; Mr. and Mrs. B. C. Fairfield and Miss Kathleen Jackson of St. Catharines. Mr. and Mrs. D. Coles, Mrs. Todruff, Mrs. Lindall, Mr. Bert Walsh, Mr. and Mrs. H. Walsh, of Hamilton.
The bride's going away gown was tailored suit of blue velvet, with hat to match.
Mr. and Mrs. Walsh left Lewiston by the 5:20 train for Buffalo and other points. After March 1st, the bridal couple will reside at the Burtis Building, No. 2 Greene St., Auburn, N. Y.
During the past two weeks showers were given for the bride by Mrs. Howard Fisher and Mrs. F. Brooker.
The Ladies' Aid Society of which the bride was Sec.-Treas. for a long time, presented her with a handsome cut glass cake dish. The bride was President of the Queenston branch of the Women's Institute. This branch gave the bride a most beautiful and useful gift—a large silver tray with inscription.
The presents of the bride were numerous and both beautiful and costly.
Exquisite gifts of silver, cut glass, china and pictures were evidences of the high regard in which the bride was held by her many friends who will extend the sincerest wishes for her happiness, while they as sincerely regret her departure from, the village where her whole life has been spent.
