Promptly at eight the young couple made their appearance and the ceremony was performed in the front parlor by Rev. E. W. Lounsbury, in a most impressive manner. The bride was handsomely attired in light surah with lace trimmings, and carried an elegant bouquet of flowers. The groom wore conventional black.

Following the ceremony congratulations were extended by those present, and about ten the wedding supper was announced, to which full justice was done by all.

The presents received by the young couple were elegant and costly, among them being a silver butter dish from Mr. and Mrs. B. L.

Dayton Daily Journal - October 22, 1903, Pg 5

The wedding of Miss Mabel Elizabeth Jones and Mr. Edward Francis Fleming was solemnized yesterday morning at Sacred Heart church, Rev. Father Charles Hickey officiating in the nuptial high mass. White chrysanthemums and roses, with palms, were used in the decoration of the church, a similar arrangement in green and white also being used at the home of the bride's uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Cable of West Fifth street, where the breakfast and reception took place.

The music for the wedding was given by the regular choir of the church, with Miss Butz at the organ, Mr. William Bucher assisting on the violin.

The bridal party entered as the Lohengrin march was played, the users, Messrs. Albert Callahan, Hugh Wall, Michael Walsh and Edward Sweetman coming first, followed by the groom and his best man, Mr. Martin Costello, of Cincinnati.

The bride was gowned in white crepe mousseline over taffeta, made train length. The style was simple, groups of deep tucks being the only ornamentation of the skirt, the waist being richly garnished with Venetian point lace and a tulle veil caught up with a diamond sunburst. At her throat she wore the groom's gift, a sunburst of diamonds and pearls. She carried a handsome white prayer book.

Miss Wagner, maid of honor, wore a gown of white silk chiffon over taffeta, with white picture hat. She carried white chrysanthemums.

During the ceremony Mr. Bucher played "Oh, Promise Me," and the bridal procession retired to the joyous strains of Mendelson.

The breakfast and reception followed at the Gable home, those at the bride's table being, in addition to the bridal party, Miss Jeannette Sweetman and Miss Ella Myers and members of the immediate families of the bride and groom.

A fine assortment of silver, cut glass and china testified to the esteem of many friends, whose best wishes go with Mr. and Mrs. Fleming in the new life upon which they now enter.

After an eastern trip they will be at home after December 1 at 404 West Fifth Street.
