The marriage of Miss Lula E. Johnson to Mr. Richard Edgar Griffin, at Kingston, Thursday, Dec. 27th, at the home of the bride, was one of the social events of the holidays in that thriving little city.  Rev. C. A. Jamison performed the ceremony.  It was solemn and impressive and witnessed by a number of friends of the bride and groom.

The home was tastefully decorated with holly mistletoe and ferns.

The bridal party entered promptly at 8:30 o’clock to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march, beautifully rendered by Miss Ethel Griffin, a sister of the groom.  “Call Me Thine Own,” was softly played throughout the ceremony.

Delicious refreshments were served during the evening.  The bride wore an exquisite gown of gray cloth, trimmed with white, a shower bouquet of brides’ roses.

A number of costly gifts were received by the young couple among them a handsome silver tea service.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Griffin are very popular and number their friends by the score.  The bride is a young woman of refined, sweet nature and possesses a charming dignity. The groom is a member of the firm of Griffin Bros. & Co., and is a well known young business man.
