REED - BEACH
A PRETTY HOME WEDDING -
The society event of the season at Richmond Mills was the occasion of
the marriage of two of our most popular young people, Mr. Robert F.
Reed and Miss Spedie M. Beach, Wednesday afternoon, at the
home of the mother of the bride. About ninety relatives and friends of
the happy couple from Massachusetts, Buffalo, Rochester,
Canadice and Richmond
were in attendance, who, by their presence and manner, attested their
keen interest in the occasion.
The house was prettily decorated with ferns and carnations. The day
opened a little foggy, but later the sky cleared and a perfect October
day lent its characteristic influence to grace the event. At the
appointed hour the bridal party made their appearance. The contracting
parties were escorted by Mr. Bernard R. Beach as best man and Miss
Florence Reed as maid of honor. The lovely bride was becomingly gowned
in a beautiful brocaded cream silk, trimmed with lace and chiffon, and
carried white roses. Miss Reed wore white organdie over blue, and
carried carnations. The gentlemen wore regulation suits. Miss Zelia
Reed of Livonia
presided at the organ.
It was very fitting that the ceremony could be performed by the Rev. S.
T. Westhafer of Richmond
avenue church, Buffalo, brother in-law of the groom.
It was an uncommon occasion for the reverend gentleman, which he fully
appreciated, and he performed his part very appropriately and
impressively. It was also fitting that he should be assisted by the
Rev. Mr. Day of Honeoye, the former pastor of the bride and groom, and
who married the parents of the bride twenty-three years ago, and had
also performed a like service for uncles and aunts, brothers and
sisters, of both.
After the ceremony refreshments of a high order were served. Miss Ida
Plimpton and Miss Edna Pemberton, both cousins of the bride, were in
charge, which insured an acceptable service. Congratulations being in
order, they were most heartily given and graciously received. The bride
and groom were handsomely remembered. Amid showers of rice and general
good will, they departed for a short wedding trip to Albany, New York,
Fall River and Taunton, until Nov. 2, after which
they will be at home. They will live in town at the ancestral home of
the groom. We welcome them to all the joys which may come to
them. R. C. B.
I don’t know if the “R. C. B.” is the author’s initials or the
paper’s. It is possible that it stands for Richmond Charles Beach, who
would have been the brides uncle.
