12/29/1920 FORTUNE-SINCLAIR

The spacious home of James SINCLAIR, in which the fire in the open hearth
added a touch of warmth and brightness, was the scene of a happy event on
Wednesday afternoon of last week when his second daughter Jean Garrick
became the bride of George Stanley FORTUNE. At precisely four o'clock the
bride looking charming in a becoming gown of white silk crepe-de-chene
entered the drawing room on the arm of her father and took her place beside
the groom. The beautiful marriage ceremony was read by Rev. Wm. FERGUSON
and the vows were taken in the presence of their immediate relatives
including uncles and aunts. After congratulations had been extended and the
register signed the company sat down to a sumptuous wedding dinner. After a
few hours of social intercourse the young couple left amid a shoer of good
wishes and confetti for Edmonton and other points via G.T.P. On their
return from their honeymoon they will take up their abode on the farm owned
by Mr. FORTUNE near Cardale. The Post joins with its readers in wishing
them a long and happy life in their new relationship.

At seven-thirty Christmas Morning the home of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel CUSACK,
Arrow River, was the scene of a very quet but pretty wedding, when their
eldest daughter Alma Mildred was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to
Frederick J. WRIGHT of Winnipeg.
The bride entered the living room on the arm of her father in the strains
of the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin, played by Mrs. Wm. TENNANT, aunt of the
bride. Little Jean, sister of the bride, in a dress of baby blue
crepe-de-chene; acted as flower girl.
The bride looked charming in a dress of French blue tricotine with a hat of
Hatter-Plush trimmed with a spray of French esprey dropping over the left
shoulder. The groom's gift the bride was a necklace, to the flower girl a
ring and to the organist a brooch.
After the ceremony which was performed by Rev. J. HAMILL of Miniota the
happy party sat down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast.
A large number of friends and relatives accompanied the bridal party to
the Grand Trans station, the bride traveling in a Hudson ?? and hat to
match, where, amid showers of confetti and good wishes, the happy couple
left for their future home in Winnipeg.
