    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, November 20, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - A Double Wedding - It is seldom such an event as a double wedding takes place but such a one was celebrated in North Albion, last Wednesday, at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Z. T. Mattison, The autumnal weather seemed to shape toward a degree of perfection on that day and all that combines to make a day delightful appeared to be given. The contracting parties where Mr. Frank Brownell, of Orwell, and Miss Carrie Reese, of Albion; Mr. Lewis Nichols, of Hohnesville, and Miss Gertrude Reese, of Albion. The brides were daughters of Mr. and Mrs. George Reese and sisters of Mrs. Mattison, at whose home the wedding took place. Early in the afternoon guests commenced arriving and the number increased until one hundred and sixty five were present. In view of the event the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. Mattison was put in perfect order for so great an occasion. There was a great work done in the ceremonial room. The bay window was handsomely decorated and a long arch was built of evergreens and flowers across the window under which the bridal parties stood while the ceremony was performed. At four o'clock, the hour for the wedding, Miss Potter played a march while the wedding party descended the stairs and took places in the room designated for them, when, in an impressive ceremony, Rev. J. Gordon, of Altmar, pronounced the words which made the four, two, as is declared by matrimonial law. The brides wore twin gowns of cream Cashmere, trimmed with satin ribbons and point lace, and can-ied roses. The best men and bridesmaids were Clarence Reese and Miss Lela Brambeiy, Charles Reese and Miss Mina Dunlap. Messrs. Orla Potter and Layton Curtis acted as ushers while Misses Maude and Grace Potter, cousins of the bride, strung white ribbon from the stairs to the arch, which gave a very pretty effect. Following the congratulations came for supper, which was participated in with much delight. In the upper hall was displayed the great number of wedding gifts which bespoke the esteem of a great circle of friends who remembered both couples. The variety showed that both the useful and the ornamental had been bestowed, for there were decorated china sets, hand-painted water sets, chairs, silverware, lamps, linen, spreads, rugs, domestic utensils, books, pictures, newspapers for the year, and various other articles. Among the guests from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. O. P. Reese, of Evans Mills; Mr. Albert Rice, of Syracuse; and guests from Mexico, Pulaski, Williamstown, Orwell, Sandy Creek, Altmar and Hohnesville. The bridal tour included a visit to Syracuse, Fulton and Oswego.
