She carried no flowers and had no attendants, save the two ribbon bearers, little Miss Eleanor Folson, cousin of the bride, and Miss Elizabeth Tanner.

Dayton Journal January 3, 1885, Page 2

The marriage of Mr. Jos. Wortman and Miss Cornelia Woodhull, only daughter of Mr. Lambert Woodhull, was duly solemnized New Year's night at Memorial Presbyterian church by Rev. J. R. Hughes, in the presence of a large congregation of relatives and friends of the bride and groom. The bride was attended by four bridesmaids, who preceded the bridal couple to the altar. During the impressive ceremony the organist with gentle touch whispered weird and mysterious sentiments highly appropriate, and at the conclusion of the ceremony the notes of the grand old Mendelssohn wedding march pealed forth in glorious melody, and graceful feet kept step with the inspired music.

The newly wedded couple repaired to the residence of the bride's parents where the reception was held, and received the congratulations of their many friends.

After the reception Mr. and Mrs. Wortman, dispending with the usual bridal tour, went directly to their new home on June street, which was built for and just completed and furnished throughout for their occupancy, and began the cheerful and happy duties of keeping house in a home of their own.

Mr. Wortman is a talented young attorney recently admitted to the bar, and has a bright future before him, with a host of friends who wish for him and his youthful bride the greatest happiness in their new position.
