When the last guests had arrived at 4:30 and the company were all arranged in the parlor to witness the ceremony, Miss Grace Snyder presiding at the organ began the wedding march. The wedding party were led by Rev. W. H. Seed followed by little Hazel Wyman dressed in blue silk, throwing flowers in the path of the bride who came on the arm of Milton Coon, the best man.
