One of the prettiest weddings of the season occurred Wednesday morning, January 16, when Miss Zita Griffin, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Marion Griffin, was united in marriage with Edward Sullivan, the ceremony taking place at St. Patrick's church in Sheffield.

Promptly at 9 o'clock to the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss Edna Maher, Mr. Sullivan, accompanied by his brother, Raymond Sullivan, advanced from the sacristy and were joined at the sanctuary rail by the bridal party. The father of the bride gave her hand in marriage. Rev. William M. Murtaugh performed the ceremony and celebrated nuptial mass.

The Bride was daintily attired in white messaline. She wore a lace veil and carried a bouquet of tea roses. Her path was showered with rose petals by her little cousin, Margaret Elliott. Miss Edith Condon acted as bridesmaid and wore a gown of pink crepe de chine with a white hat and carried pink and white carnations. During nuptial mass, Miss Edna Maher presided at the organ, ably assisted by Miss Genevieve McMahon, who rendered several solos in a touching and impressive manner.

A large number of relatives and friends attended the ceremony and offered congratulations to the happy couple. A reception followed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Griffin for the relatives, close friends, and the members of the St. Patrick's choir. The home was decorated in pink and white for the occasion.

Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan departed by way of Buda for their honeymoon, which will be spent in Fremont, Neb. They will live on the Griffin farm.
