On Tuesday morning Edward S, Lee and Miss Carrie McDermott were joined together “for better or wusser” by the Rev. Father Murphy, at St. Michael’s Church. The occasion caused a considerate flutter among the fair sex and they turned out in large numbers besides which the members of the bar and jurymen attending the Circuit Court were present in a body, Court having adjourned to afford them all an opportunity to do so. The bride was attired in a blue silk dress, tastefully trimmed with ombre brocade, which looked simple yet beautiful. She also wore a fancy straw hat trimmed with lemon colored ribbon and flowers. Thomas J. Pierce, of Detroit, acted as groomsman and Miss Kittie Maher, of Detroit, as bridesmaid. The latter was dressed somewhat similar to the bride. During the ceremony Rev. Father Murphy delivered an excellent address on the institution of marriage, embodying some excellent advice to the happy couple as well as to those who had already been similarly united. At the conclusion of the ceremony, which, by the way, was very impressive, Mr. and Mrs. Lee started for Detroit and other points in this state, bearing with them, the good-will and best wishes of their many friends. The will remain away about a week. Among the many presents received was an elegant parlor clock from Mr. Lee’s brethren of the bar; a fine cooking stove from Judge Newton and W.R. Hubbard; horse and carriage from James McDermott, father of the bride; silver cake basket from Mrs. C. Cassell, of Colorado, aunt of the bride; silver pickle caster from Thos. J. Pierce, of Detroit; beautiful was cross from Miss Kittie Maher, of Detroit, and other ap0propriate gifts.
