Thursday June 17 at 8 p.m. in the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church occurred the marriage of Mr. Charles M. Long and Miss Daisy M. Ellis. The church was well filled with invited guests when at the hour appointed for the ceremony the Ben-Hur orchestra began playing the Mendelssohn wedding march to which the bridal party came to the altar. The groom preceded by ushers Ingram Hills and Austin Long came down the east aisle, the bride coming down the west aisle preceded by ushers Roy Trout and Walter Coppage. The bride was attired in a pretty costume of white India mull, trimmed in ribbons and laces. She carried bride's roses. The officiating clergyman was the bride's uncle, Rev. Dr. Ogden of South Bend and he entering the auditorium by the west vestry met the bride and groom at the altar where the impressive marriage ceremony of the Methodist Episcopal Church was conducted. During the service the orchestra softly played Love's Old Sweet song and upon the benediction being pronounced struck up the bridal march from "Lohengrin" to which the bridal party passed from the church, taking carriages at the door for the hom eof the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. CK Ellis of W. Market Street. Here the bridal party and the immediate relatives of the bride and groom were handsomely entertained. A sumptuous wedding supper was served and the evening most enjoyably passed. The bride received large number of very elegant and costly presents, including an exquisite China set and silver from the fellow employees of the groom at the Citizens' National Bank. At midnight Mr. and Mrs. Long left for Detroit from which place they take a boat for the lake trip. Upon their return they will reside with the groom's parents for a few months before beginning housekeeping. Both Mr. and Mrs. Long are popular and excellent young people and they begin their wedded life, attended by the best wishes of a host of friends.
