The 1907 Naples Fair
At 1:30 p. m. on Thursday the marriage of Horace
Shepard and Miss Inez Remer, both of Naples, took place on the platform
in front of the grand stand, the ceremony being performed by Rev. W. H.
Haines, pastor of the Italy-Naples Baptist church. The bride was
becomingly attired in a blue dress, with hat to match, while the groom
wore the conventional black. At the close of the ceremony Secretary C.
L. Lewis claimed the first kiss from the blushing bride. After
congratulations, amid a shower of rice, the happy couple departed for
the home of the groom’s parents, W. G. Shepard and wife, and they are
spending their honeymoon in this village. Such an affair is not
complete without music, and the band rallied to the occasion and played
“Onward Christian Soldiers.” Mr. and Mrs. Shepard are well known and
popular young people and they have the best wishes of their many
friends for a happy and prosperous journey through life.
Rev. W. H. Haines says that more people were present
at the wedding than at any other at which he had ever had the pleasure
of being the officiating clergyman.
