Dayton Daily News - April 29, 1913, Page 5

Tuesday morning at 6:30 o'clock, Miss Corinne Ferneding, of 231 North St. Clair street, this city, and William L. O'Brien of Springfield, were united in marriage by the Rev. Father Charles Hickey at Sacred Heart Church. Joseph Murphy sang preceding the service while the organist continued in a program of happily selected numbers.

The bride wore a blue traveling suit with hat to correspond and she carried a prayer book. Her sister, Miss Kathleen Ferneding, was her only attendant and she wore a tan cloth tailored suit. Harry O'Brien, brother of the groom, was his best man.

A wedding breakfast was served to the immediate family and the bridal party at the Phillips house, and later the bridal pair left for a honeymoon trip.

They will make their home on North St. Clair street. The bride is a graduate of Notre Dame academy and her marriage to Mr. O'Brien is of interest not only to Dayton, but Springfield friends as well. The groom has been making his home in this city, being connected with the Delco labratories [sic].

A number of Springfield friends of the groom came over to the wedding.

She carried a bouquet of roses. The bridesmaid wore a pretty white dress, with tucking and insertion, and she wore a large hat.

Russel M. Oliver - Sarah E. Brunner
Dayton Journal - August 31, 1905, Page 5

One of the pretting weddings of the week was celebrated last evening at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Sarah E. Brunner, when her daughter, Miss Mabel, was given in marriage to Mr. Russel M. Oliver.

The pretty home had been converted into a bower of beauty by loving hands, and formed an attractive setting for the impressive service, which occurred at 5 o'clock, in the presence of relatives and a few invited guests, the ceremony being conducted by Rev. H. H. Fout. Pink and white were the characteristic colors used in the decoration, the color scheme being artistically carried out with quantities of China asters.

Miss Brunner is a sweet attractive girl, and her friends are legion, as was attested by the number of handsome gifts received. Miss Brunner has won many friends, not only because of her attractive personality, but owing to the possession of a sweet sympathetic voice, which has been well cultivated and has been generously used at many social and church affairs, much to the pleasure of her admiring friends.

Mr. Oliver is a rising young business man, in all respects worthy of his accomplished and lovely bride. Miss Brunner appeared more than usually attractive in her bridal gown of white hand embroidered Irish linen, combined with lace. After the ceremony a reception followed and the fair bride delighted all by singing several songs appropriate to the joyous occasion, among them being, "Ever True," and "The Vow," both of which were sung with much tenderness and feeling. Mr. and Mrs. Oliver later conducted the guests into the handsomely decorated dining room, where a delicious wedding supper was served, the table being a picture of beauty, decorated in ferns and China asters.

Seated at the bride's table were: Mr. and Mrs. Russel Oliver, Mr. and Mrs. John Oliver of Blanchester, Mr. Henry Oliver, Mrs. Sarah Brunner, Mr. and Mrs. W. Z. Schooley, Mr. Herschel Schooley, Mr. and Mrs. John E. Feight, and Mr. Horace Feight.

Mr. and Mrs. Oliver left on an extended bridal trip through Colorado, and will visit before their return, all points of interest in that picturesque region. The bride's going away gown was blue broadcloth, tailor-made, with hat to match. Upon their return a month hence, they will reside with the bride's mother on South Findlay street.
