Gouverneur Free Press - Wednesday, June 17, 1908



A very pretty wedding occurred Wednesday noon at the house of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Wilson in the town of Macomb, when their daughter Miss Alice was united in marriage to Perry G. Sterling of that town.  Over 200 friends and relatives of the young couple were present at the ceremony.

Promptly at 12 o'clock the strains of the wedding march as rendered by Miss Lena LaFave, was the signal for the entrance of the bridal party.  The procession headed by Miss Ethel Russell, the bridesmaid and the groomsman, Benjamin Bresee proceeded from the sitting room to the parlor where under a beautiful arch of ferns and lace the ceremony was performed by Rev. Matoon, the former pastor of the young couple.

The bride was charmingly attired in a gown of white silk and carried a bouquet of white roses.  The bridesmaid was also gowned in white and carried a bouquet of yellow and white flowers. 

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the bridal party together with over 200 relatives and friends sat down to luncheon.

Mr. and Mrs. Sterling were the recipients of many beautiful and costly presents, showing the high esteem in which they are held by their many friends.

Amid showers of rice and the congratulations of their friends, the young couple left for an extended wedding journey in the central area of the state.
