    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, January 5, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Invitations are out for the marriage of Miss Dixson, only daughter of W. B. Dixson, Esq., and Mr. I G. Hubbs, a rising and prosperous attorney of Parish, in this County. Both the contracting parties are very popular in Pulaski society and the, nuptial event is discussed with great animation and kindly interested by our young people.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, January 12, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - The Hubbs-Dixson Wedding - A Memorable Society Event - Ever since the invitations were out, announcing the approaching nuptials of the parties referred to in the above heading, and possibly for a short time before, our society people have been very interestedly discussing the approaching event. And this was most natural, for the expectant groom, Irving G. Hubbs, and the bride-to-be, Miss Nannie Clark Dixson, were among our best known and most popular young people. The event occurred Thursday afternoon, January 5th, at the residence of the bride's father, W. B. Dixson, Esq., on Jefferson Avenue, in this village. One hundred and twenty-five invitations have been sent out, and our streets, for some time previous to the hour appointed, five p.m., were gay with handsome turnouts, conveying the invited guests to the place of interest. Here all was brilliantly illuminated and every apartment was handsomely decorated with flowers and palms in honor of the delightful occasion. The marriage ceremony, as performed by Rev. Mr. Emmons, was not only impressive but very appropriate and in perfect keeping with the glad surroundings. The groom was attired in a conventional suit of black and never appeared to better advantage. The best man was Mr. W. J. Hubbs, brother of the groom. His pleasant manner and thoughtful but unobtrusive attentions added greatly to the enjoyment of the occasion. The bride, by common consent, was declared never to have been more charmingly attractive and on this occasion. She wore a perfectly fitting gown of white bengaline silk, entraine, and carried a bridal bouquet of white roses. Miss Betts, the bride's maid, wore a magnificent lawnsdown, lemon colored silk, also entraine, and carried a beautiful bouquet of yellow roses. The compliments regarding the beauty of both bride and her attendants were universal and hearty. At the entrance of the bridal party and also during the ceremony, the soft notes of the wedding march were heard from the piano, presided over by Miss Minnie Wells, of Cortland. Very jolly and enthusiastic were the congratulations that followed the ceremony, each vying with the other as to wholesonled heartiness. The refreshments, that were soon after served, were elaborate as to provision and variety were an enjoyable feature of the happy event. The guests tarried most and longest at the display of wedding gifts. These were bright and beautiful indeed. The silver, of all modern design and finish, the china, the articles of embroidery and find needlework, the pictures and many other elegant and appropriate tokens of kindly esteem were certainly a "dream of beauty." Not the least among these was the gift from a fond and indulgent father to his beloved and only daughter, the bride, of a certified check for $1,000. A number of presents from abroad arrived too late to be seen at the wedding. Among these were elegant gifts from C. K. Clark and wife, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Mrs. C. C. Stoddard, Beloit, Wisconsin, H. W. Damon, Marshall, Minnesota, and W. W. Warner, New York City. Among those guests from out of town were Hon. D. E. Ainsworth and wife, of Sandy Creek, Miss Steele and Miss Rice, from Oswego, Charles Peck and wife, of Mexico, John Salisbury and wife and Miss Kittie Salisbury, of Pierrepont Manor, Mrs. Mollie Peckham, of Syracuse, Mr. Fred Rich, of South Richland, and Charles R. Coville, of Central Square. Amid the usual shower of rice, only rather intensified as to seventy, the happy pair departed on the 7:25 train for New York. A host of hearty good wishes went with them. Upon their return, the newly married will locate in Parish, where Mr. Hubbs is doing a thriving business at attorney at law. He graduated from Pulaski Academy with great credit and subsequently from Cornell University Law school. He is a fluent speaker and has already achieved success in his chosen profession. Mrs. Hubbs is likewise a graduate from Pulaski Academy and subsequently passed some time in Houghton Seminary, Clinton. She has passed her entire life in Pulaski, and is a young lady of kindly disposition and many friends. The Democrat wishes that prosperity and happiness may always attend them.
