    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, March 30, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Bound in Silken Fetters - Aird-Holmes - One of the merriest weddings celebrated in this village for a long time was that which made "of one flesh" Mr. Albert F. Aird and Miss Stella R. Holmes. The nuptials were consummated on Mill street at the handsome residence of Mr. Walter Holmes, a brother of the bride, Wednesday evening, March 29th, at about six o'clock. When all was in readiness, the bridal party entered the parlor, preceded by Rev. S. Call, pastor of the First M. E. Church, Utica, and by the gentlemanly ushers, Messrs. Charles Parsons and George Bentley. The groom's best man was Mr. Charles Aird, and the bridesmaid was Miss Jessie Becker, of this village. The scene as the party stood before the reverend gentleman, and as viewed by the many relatives and guests, was one long to be pleasantly remembered. In the background was a profusion of flowers and plants arranged in exquisite taste, while directly overhead, in the midst of wreaths and floral arches, hung suspended a horseshoe of white flowers. In a few well-chosen words, Rev. Call, after responses from the contracting parties, pronounce the words which made the two, husband and wife. The congratulations which followed thick and fast were most hearty, and evinced the high regard in which the newly made Mr. and Mrs. Aird, was held. The wedding repast was served to the very large number present, in excellent style by the pleasant and hospitable Mr. and Mrs. Holmes, and truly "all went merry as a marriage bell." Among the guests present from out-of-town were the following: Dr. C. F. Wright, Syracuse; Misses Hertes and Sarah Gorsline, Scriba; Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Lewis, New Haven; Lizzie Peck, Sandy Creek; Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Wright, Richland; Mr. and Mrs. Elvin Potter, Orwell; Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Warner, Sandy Creek; Mrs. George Porter, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Mr. and Mrs. O. H. White, South Richland; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Willis, South Richland; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Aird, Union Square; Mrs. Lora Box Smith, Norway, New York. As we also give herewith a list of the presents received: Set gold band china; set moss rose china; silver and crystal fruit dish; pickle pastor, ebony clock; large six bottle castor, revolving butter dish; spoon holder; silver and crystal toilet bottled; pair solid napkin rings; solid butter knife and sugar spoon; jelly spoon; crumb knife; 2 berry spoons, gold lined; cream spoon; sugar spoon; set of crystal; pair self-salts; Willow rocker; 3 sets damask napkins; silk lace tie; damask tablecloth; velvet rug; fine elbow; book, Ten Years in Washington; book, Home, Sweet Home; pair, gold bracelets; gold necklace; cash, $5; and also one fine silver tea set and ice picture and cup resented by the Cortland Wagon Company, and one silver and crystal jell knife and holder from the former pupils of the bride, which are very much prized. Although the groom and bride left in the early evening on the eastward bound train for a tour to Albany and other points east, many of the guests remained until a much later hour, passing the time in merry glee and pleasant conversation. Mr. Aird is well-known throughout this County as a heavy dealer, both wholesale and retail, and wagons of every description, and in every variety of agricultural implements. He began business when but a boy for himself, and now does perhaps the largest business of the kind of any similar dealer in this portion of the state. The bride was several terms, a teacher in our high school, and the handsome presents given her by her recent pupils, was but a slight indication of the high place she held in their regard. We are sure the union of these well-known and highly respected young people, begun so auspiciously, will be but the beginning of a long and happy life of usefulness and tender regard, the one for the other.
