On Thursday morning at the cathedral Rev. Father McAuliffe united in marriage two favorite young people, Miss Cecelia Maxey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Maxey of Alameda street, and Atalus Niemeyer of Verdugo. Miss Eleanora Neimeyer (sic/Niemeyer), sister of the groom, was bridesmaid, and J. McGarry acted as best man. The bridal robe was cream cashmere trimmed with lace, with veil and wreath of orange blossoms. Instead of a bouquet she carried a prayer book. The bridesmaid was also attired in cream color. After the ceremony the bridal party and immediate friends were driven to the home of the bride's parents, where a wedding breakfast followed. The house was made beautiful by ferns and flowers, and the occasion was a joyful one.

At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the young couple, amid showers of rice, left for Coronado, and upon their return they will make their home at the bridegroom's ranch at Verdugo.
