In a double ring ceremony at the United Church, Winchester, Saturday July 17, Miss Marjorie Joyce Levere, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold G. Levere, became the bride of Mr. Alfred Willard Felhaber, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Felhaber, of Pembroke.

Rev. Norman J. Thomas officiated, and the altar was decorated with baskets of Summer flowers and ferns. The organ music was plated by Mrs. Howard Fetterly, and Miss June Rowat sang "The Voice that Breathed O'er Eden" and "Through the Years"

Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attended by her twin sister, Mrs. Joy Miller, as matron of honor, and by Miss Hazel Felhaber, sister of the bridegroom, as bridesmaid. Mr. Clare Miller was best man and Mr. Duncan Levere and Mr. Lorne Byers were ushers.

The bride's white satin gown had an off-the-shoulder neckline and a nylon yoke edged with Chantilly lace and caught with seed pearls. The bodice was fitted, and the full skirt was caught up with three satin bows over a lace-edged petticoat. Her veil fell from a tiara of Lily-of-the-valley, and she carried a bouquet of Bettertime roses. She wore a six-strand pearl necklace and matching earrings, the gift of the bridegroom.

After a reception held at the home of the bride's parents, the couple left on a trip to Toronto and the Muskoka district. The bride's travelling costume was a powder blue crepe dress with black accessories and white topcoat, and she wore a corsage bouquet of red roses. Mr. and Mrs. Felhaber will live in Ottawa.
