- from a scrapbook at the Linesville Historical Society:
The home of Mr. and Mrs. F.E. Bunday was the scene of a beautiful and joyous wedding last Thursday night. The occasion was the marriage of their only daughter, Miss Harriet, to Prof. J.H. Grandey, the principal of the Linesville schools. No more beautiful wedding was ever celebrated in Linesville than this. Dame Rumor has been applying her trade for a considerable time, as is her custom of all weddings in the higher walks of life.
The home was beautifully decorated. Flowers and Art and Skill were brought to a generous use and the result was all that the sense of the beautiful could expect. We don't know who to give credit for the decorations, but the many expressions of appreciation bore testimony that they were enjoyed.
(hard to read) little after 8 o'clock when the bridal party descended the stairs and took their places under an arch of (unreadable) work hung with many flower bells, which spoke messages of love and happiness. The bride was led to the altar by her father, and Mrs. Bunday leaned upon the arm of the groom. The maid of honor was Miss Blanche Stratton and the groom's best man, his brother, Robert. Master Harold Gehr acted as the page and ring bearer. As the party took their places under the arch, the rich tone of Mendelsshon's wedding march was modulated into the sweet and plaintive strains of the Flower Song, which continued softly through the entire ceremony. The bride was given away by the father and mother, the groom received her and after the marriage vow was taken he placed the ring on her finger. The ceremony was a beautiful and elaborate one. Miss Hattie never looked better than on this her wedding eve. She was dressed in a rich cream moire silk, with mousselline de soie and pearl trimmings, carrying bridal roses. Her attendant was gowned in white organdy over pink, and carried sweet peas. There was a blending and harmonizing of the elements of this occasion that made it especially enjoyable. Mrs. Clara Gehr presided at the piano and blended the music to the ceremony in an admirable way. Rev. WM Curry was the officating clergyman.
After an enjoyable supper a musical and literary program was rendered which was much enjoyable by the (rest unreadable).
.....were Miss Stratton, Mrs. Cora Gehr, Mr. and Mrs. Cory, Mrs. Curry, Miss Babcock, Mr. and Mrs. Cram, Mr. and Mrs. C.S. Gehr and Mr. George Stratton. Mr. R.P. Miller was at the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bunday, at Oxford, Ohio, 22 years ago and in a happy reminiscence he compared the Now and the Then. It was not a large wedding, but it was a happy and an elegant one. About thirty couples sat down to the supper. Prof. Grandey has won one of Linesville's best girls and we congratulate him and wish them a long and happy wedding life
