Pretty Wedding

Mayflower street, East End, Thursday evening, October 1, by the Rev. Charles Cheesman, was solemnized the marriage of Miss Mary Catherine Leber, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Herman and Harry Wilton Bigley, son of Mrs. Kathryne Zell Bigley, of Broad street, East End. The bride, who was given away by her father, was beautifully gowned in white net over white silk and a white aigrette in her hair, and carried a cluster of bride's roses. Miss Garnett Bigley, sister of the groom, was bidesmaid and wore white mull over lavender and carried white gladioli and pink roses. Mr. Bigley was attended by his brother, Ralph L. Bigley. Covers were laid for six at the bride's table, which was decorated with white and pink carnations and roses. The guests were limited to friends of the immediate families. The out-of-town guests were Miss Pearl Bartholomew and Miss Blanche Irwin of Philadelphia, who are now being entertained by the parents of the bride. Mr. and Mrs. Bigley will be at home to their friends after October 10 at No. 14 Mayflower street.
