PARKER - LINCOLN
Naples, N. Y. - As pretty a wedding as Naples has ever seen was
that on Thursday afternoon last, when A. Lindsley Parker, of
Detroit, was wedded to Mary C. Lincoln, at the home of her
father, Hon. C. S. Lincoln. Miss Clara Clark of Canandaigua, cousin of
the bride, is to be largely credited with the very beautiful
decorations and arrangements which made the occasion so delightful. A
novel feature was the singing by the eight attendants of the bride and
groom, as they ushered them from the distant part of the house, through
the rooms filled with guests, into the presence of the clergyman, with
the stirring melody of Lohengrin's Bridal Chorus, there encircling them
with silken cords during the ceremony of marriage. Never was a bride
here more handsomely remembered by way of wedding gifts, and none more
beloved. The groom is a young
man of noble Christian character, and of much promise. He is now
general secretary of the Detroit Y. M. C. A., a position of great
responsibility. A large number of his western friends and others from
abroad were present at the wedding.
