    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, September 23, 1903 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - A Pretty Wedding - Mr. Fred Olmstead and Miss Lela Bambury, Orwell, United in Marriage - One of the prettiest of home weddings as well as the social event of the season occurred last Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Bambury at which time their daughter, Lela M. was united in marriage to Mr. Fred L. Olmstead. Promptly at 4 o'clock the Mendelssohn's wedding march, which was rendered in a very artistic manner by Miss Ruby Lyon, announced the approach of the wedding party. First came the Misses Cecil Weed and Anna Lattitner, both dressed in white and who acted as ribbon girls. Following them came Miss Anna Bambury, sister of the bride as maid of honor. She was very tastefully dressed in white. The bride wore a handsome gown of de soi trimmed with lace medallions and carried white roses. She was assisted by Mrs. Clara Bambury as matron of honor, who wore her recent wedding gown of white silk mull and carried sweet peas. The groom was attired in the conventional frock coat and was assisted by Mr. Elvin Bambury, the brother of the bride, who acted as best man. The bridal party proceeded to the spacious double parlors where a beautiful arch of evergreens and asters surmounted by a horseshoe of asters had been erected. The ceremony was performed by Rev. T. T. Davies, pastor of the Congregational churches of Sandy Creek and Orwell. After congratulations, a sumptuous wedding supper was served under the direction of Mrs. A. B. Woolever the well-known cateress of this village. The bride is the daughter of a highly respected and well-to-do family, who have successfully conducted one of the largest farms in this section. The groom is the son of Mr. A. E. Olmstead, the leading businessman in this locality. He has had charge of his father's large store in this village for some time. Both of the contracting parties are well and favorably known and have well wishes of the entire community, as was attested by the numerous and valuable wedding gifts, among which was a very substantial cash one from the father of the groom. Amid a shower of rice and best wishes from the nearly one hundred assembled relatives and friends, the happy couple left on the evening train for Youngstown, Ohio. They will make their home in this village. Among those present from out of town were Miss Libby and Thomas Male and Mr. Ernest Bambury, Schenectady; Mrs. John Parker, Albion, Michigan; Mr. and Mrs. David Clark, Ricard; Mrs. Ameia Butler, Richland; Mr. and Mrs. Harvey, Edward Dight, Mrs. John Williams, Mr. and Mrs. James Acker and Mrs. Lewis of Pulaski.
