Heath, Carrie (Marriage – 4 June 1881)
The social event of the season was the solemnizing of the nuptials of our well known and popular fellow townsman, Mr. A. A. Damon, and the beautiful and accomplished Miss Carrie Heath, one of the fairest and best of the bright galaxy of Spencer’s gentler sex, at the residence of the bride’s parents, last Saturday evening, June 4th. The impressive ceremony was read by Rev. E. W. Stevens, and after the many warm friends of the beauteous bride and gallant groom had offered their congratulations in a manner which plainly showed that the newly made one will always occupy a sacred spot in the hearts of all who know them, refreshments were passed, and, amid sweet strains from the Spencer band, who could not let this occasion pass without showing their well wishes for the happy couple, ice cream, cake, lemonade, etc., were discussed by the many guests. After this an hour or two were passed in social converse, and then one and all bid the happy twain good night, convinced that “Gus,” is well worthy of the rich prize he has drawn in the lottery of life and love.
It would be useless for us, a man, to attempt a description of the bride’s costume. We will simply say that it was an elegantly fitting fawn colored silk, trimmed with gros grain silk to match, and her hair done in a very becoming style, and simply but beautifully adorned with pure white roses, and a lovely wreath of the conventional orange blossoms. A better looking couple ‘twould be hard to find.
The prominent position of bridesmaid and groomsman was very charmingly filled by Miss Carrie Sanford, and Dr. G. H. Haddy.
