Extended marriage description: "At Barrie on Dec. 3rd, by Rev. D.D. McLeod, Miss Alvina Moss McAfee and Mr. Robert Faris, both of West Gwillimbury, were united in marriage. The bride was attired in a beautiful suit of drab broadcloth and blouse of white taffeta silk, the yoke being overlaid with embroidered white chiffon and draped with white chiffon and sequin trimming. She wore a black silk velvet hat with tam crown of white silk overlaid with black sequin, white mohair and black chenille, and trimmed with large black and white plumes. The bride was waited upon by her cousin, Miss. Myrtle Stewart, as bridesmaid, who wore a dark blue cheviot cloth suit and blouse of shell pink liberty silk, trimmed with cream chiffon and sequin applique. Mr. Edgar J. Evans acted very ably as best man for the groom. After a sumptuous wedding breakfast, the happy couple took the evening train south for Toronto and other places, accompanied by Miss Stewart and Mr. Evans as far as Bradford. The groom's gift to his bride was a beautiful crescent set with pearls and three stars of turquoise. The bridesmaid's and best man's gifts from the groom were a gold bracelet and necktie pin. After the honeymoon trip the young couple will reside on the farm formerly owned by Mr. Thos. Hamer, near Bradford, and purchased about a year ago by Mr. Faris. The correspondence wishes the newly-wedded pair lifelong happiness and success."
