Wedding Bells

A happy union of Christmas and wedding bells made glad music at the residence of T. P. Dickson on the 25th inst. when Miss Anna Dickson and Ashley R. Tabor were made one. The affair was a quiet but tasteful one with but few guests, outside the families of the contracting parties, being present. The house was redolent with Christmas cheer, being appropriately decked with fern, holly, and mistletoe. At high noon the wedding march was played by the skillful fingers of Miss Carrie Craig, and the happy couple came into the room and stood beneath a green arch from the center of which was suspended a large horseshoe of holly berries. The friends then gathered around, and the short but impressive ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Burgess. The bride was beautiful in a robe of white figured silk with trimmings of pearl passementerie, lace, and bows of satin, and carried in her hand a large bouquet of white carnations. The groom was attired in the conventional costume. After a short interval for congratulations, the party was invited to the dining room, there to partake of a bountiful Christmas dinner. The table was laid for 20 and was beautifully decorated with ferns and violets in profusion. From a centerpiece of violets, long feathery sprays of fern alternating with loops of lavender ribbon extended in all directions. Boutonnieres of violets and maiden-hair fern tied with lavender ribbon were laid for each guest. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Dickson, Miss Estelle B. Dickson, Mr. Fred W. Dickson, Master Cyrus R. Dickson, Master David T. Dickson, Mr. and Mrs. Ben P. Tabor, Miss Hope Tabor, Miss Faith Tabor, Mr. and Mrs. M. T. Lawrence, Miss Jennie Riggs of Oakland; Miss Miriam Robinson of San Jose; Misses Craig, Skinner, and Sander of Auburn; Mr. A. B. Webster of Oakland; Mr. W. L. Webster of San Jose; Mr. E. B. Gaylord and Rev. Mr. Burgess of Auburn. After the dinner the newly wedded couple, in a shower of rice, old shoes, and good wishes, took the afternoon train for Napa Valley where they will spend the first days of their honeymoon. The bride is the elder daughter of T. P. Dickson and wife, and is one of Auburn's popular teachers. The groom is the youngest son of the late Dr. Isaac Tabor and member of the well-known law firm of Tabor & Tabor. Their many friends join in the words of Longfellow in singing: "O fortunate, O happy day! When a new household finds its place Among the myriad homes of earth, Like a new star just sprung to birth; And rolled on its harmonious way Into the boundless regime of space."
