Wedding at the Lawrence Hotel

A large company of happy people convened in the parlor of the above house this afternoon to share in that ever freshly fascinating scene, that heavenly entrance to the domestic paradise - a wedding. The bride was Miss Jennie, daughter of Mr. James Floyd, proprietor of the house. The groom was Mr. Edward Hassig, a young man long and favorably known in this city. Miss Lucy Floyd, Miss Ellen Phillips, Mr. Charles Phillips and Mr. Charles Brown attended the bride and groom, and Rev. A. C. Smith performed the ceremony. The bride, who is very handsome, and just ripening into womanhood, was tastefully dressed in white mohair, with tulle veil and orange blossoms. Her maids wore white Swiss ruffled. A sumptuous dinner was served at 4 o'clock. The united twain will take their departure on the evening train going north, for a bridal trip.
