A Happy Afternoon Wedding.  1890

It was a pretty home wedding - a wedding without ostentation and yet one that was full of interest on account of the prominence of the contracting parties.  Only immediate relative of Miss Lucy Mary Moore and Mr. Alverson Gates Thalimer were present at one o'clock today in the parlors of the bride's mother, Mrs. J.C. Moore, on North street when Rev. C.H. Dunlap conducted the ceremony which closed with the words "and I therefore declare you man and wife."

The bride looked very pretty in her traveling gown of dark green material very neatly trimmed with darker goods.

After the ceremony the guests partook of a wedding dinner that was very heartily enjoyed.  The presents were numerous and very pretty.  Mr. and Mrs. Thalimer left on the evening train for New York , Philadelphia and Washington .  On their return Mr. Thalimer will begin the erection of a handsome house on Lincoln avenue .  Those present from out of town were the father, mother, sister (paper has been torn away) and the brothers of the groom, from (further damage) and A.C. Moore, (the rest is torn away).
