The home of Mr. and Mrs. John Dempster, 1013 Washington street, was the scene of a beautiful wedding Wednesday evening, December 29th, when their daughter, Mabel B., was united in marriage to Gregory Featherston, of Kingsley. Promptly at eight o'clock, Rev. E. E. Gilbert, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal church, took his place, followed by the little ring bearer, Irene Phyllis Payne, a niece of the groom, who carried a large white lily with ring inlaid. The bride and groom entered and stood under a beautiful bank of white and green, over which hung three large wedding bells. The bride carried a bouquet of roses and white lilies.
The impressive ring service was used, after which the young couple received hearty congratulations.
Immediately after the ceremony, the guests were ushered to the dining room and an elaborate two-course luncheon was served. The dining room was neatly decorated with the wedding colors, the table centerpiece being smilax, ferns and roses.
The dining room was in charge of the sisters of the bride. The table appointments were in keeping with the color scheme.
The bride's gown was of imported French white taffeta, whith lace and fish scale trimmings. She wore a white veil, a necklace of pearl beads and white satin slippers. The bride is a popular young lady, having been born in Plymouth county and has spent all her life here. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Featherston, and he also was born in Plymouth county. Both of the young people have a host of friends and are favorites in their neighborhood. They received many valuable gifts. They will make their home on the Featherston home farm in Union township.
The out-of-town guests were Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Payne, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Kitterman, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Featherston, Kingsley; Mrs. Wm. Dempster, Brunswick, Neb.; Mrs. and Mrs. John Smith, Henry Dempster, Fay (sic-Faye) Burrill, Union township. [Henry Dempster and Faye Burrill married less than a month later, on January 20, 1916.]
The young couple left Thursday for Neligh, Neb., for a visit at the home of the bride's brother, James Dempster, and expect to be at home by March 1st.
