Wedding Wednesday - Jones & Curtis

The Salt Lake Tribune, August 2, 1903

The most charming and pretty affair of
the week was a wedding party in honor of
the nuptials of Miss Lillie E. Jones, one of
the Garden City's most beautiful and
highly accomplished young ladies, and Mr.
Robert S. Curtis
, a young business man
of promising ability who came to Provo
from Grand Island, Neb., two years ago.
The reception was given at the home of
the bride's parents, Mrs. and Mr. J. V.
of the First ward.  The ceremony
was performed by the Rev. S. H. Good-
of the Congregational church, after
which the guests partook of a sumptuous
wedding supper, served by young ladies
amid a profusion of deliciously fragrant
and tastily arranged flowers, with which
the rooms were set on to excellent advan-
tage.  When the newly-wedded couple left
for their new home on Center street they
were escorted to the door by a m[e]rry crowd
who wished them a bright future and
much happiness, and signified these good
wishes with an abundance of rice, old
shoes, tin horns, and printed banners. The
guests present were Mr. and Mrs. J. V.
Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bee, Mr. and
Mrs. M. B. Whitney
of Salt Lake City,
Mr. and Mrs. Blumenthal, Mr. and Mrs. Wil-
liam Bassett
, Rev. and Mrs. S. H. Good-
Win, Misses Smith of Logan, May Alexan-
der Grace Meek
of Ogden, Jennie Jones,
Allie Bee, Mrs. Hyrum Cluff,
and Miss Lil-
lian Johnson: Messrs. Mertice Jones, Shir-
ley Bee, Fred Bee,  Mark E. Bezzant, John
W. Buchi.
