    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, January 5, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland - Mr. Monroe Wright and Miss Ida Paris, of Watertown, were married in that city on Wednesday, December 28th. The happy couple started for New York. A number of relatives and friends from this place attended the wedding. We tender our hearty congratulations.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, January 12, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Marriage Bells - The following paragraphs are extracts from the Watertown Times, dated December 29th, 1881: Yesterday, at the State street M. E. church, Miss Ida R. Paris, eldest daughter of Charles M. Paris, Esq., of the city, was united in marriage to Mr. Monroe Wright, of Richland, Oswego County. The ceremony was performed by Rev. C. W. Parsons, of the church, assisted by Rev. I. S. Bingham. The bride, who is a handsome brunette, was attired in a dress of cream satin tulle, with trimmings of rich lace draped with rosebuds and smilax. The bridal veil fell in rich folds over her dark hair, and was fastened with orange blossoms, and in her hand she carried a bouquet of Marshall Neil roses. Miss Manie Paris, a younger and only sister of the bride, a bright and beautiful girl of fifteen, accompanied the bride to the altar, preceded by the mates of honor, the Misses Nellie and Addie Campbell, of Copenhagen, cousins of the bride, Miss Hattie Clemens, of Rutland, and Miss Sadie Clow, of this city. The groom, accompanied by Mr. Albert F. Aird, of Pulaski, as best man, and escorted by the ushers, Mr. John Gilbert, of Adams, Dr. W. G. Smith, of Copenhagen, Mr. F. P. Trench, and Mr. Alvin H. Dewey, of this city, moved down the opposite aisle, meeting the bride in front of the chancel, while the wedding march from Lohengrin was rendered by the organist, Miss Richey. After the ceremony was concluded and while the organ pealed forth the notes of Mendelssohn's grand wedding march, the bridal party retraced their steps to the carriages in waiting, and were conveyed to the residence of the bride's parents, where a reception was given to about one hundred guests. The canopy under which the newly wedded pair received the congratulations of their friends, was composed of trailing vines and flowers, suspended from which was a "Lovers Knot," formed of scarlet and white bouvardias and the choicest tea roses. On the opposite side of the room an upright piano was surmounted by a bank of rare plants and choice blossoms, and the indispensable horseshoe was of white everlasting's with scarlet nails. In the center of the bride's table was an epergne filled with camellias, roses and carnations, together with firms, smilax and other choice flowers. The bride was most liberally remembered by her friends, the presents being numerous, handsome, ornamental, and useful. At 5 p.m., Mr. and Mrs. Wright took their departure for a visit to New York and other eastern cities, followed by the kind wishes of their many friends for their future happiness, to ensure which the lucky slipper was sent after them as the carriage rolled from the door.
