WHITE–HUFFMAN

The San Francisco Chronicle of Nov. 25th, says: The wedding of Miss Mary Huffman and Espic Alexander White was a home wedding and was solemnized Wednesday evening at 8:30 o'clock at the reside of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Huffman, 2100 Broadway. Rev. George Lyons, pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Hayward, the officiating clergyman, an old friend of the family, was assisted by Rev.  Robert Mackenzie. On account of a recent bereavement in the family the guests were limited to relatives and intimate friends, which made a wedding party of almost 100. A magnificent collection of ferns from Merced, where the Huffman family lived for many years, was effectively placed, and the rooms and halls looked like a grove of date and fan palms.  The wedding bower was wrought to hold as a canopy of delicate bridal veil which the great, great, great grandmother of the groom had worn over 200 years ago. It was a delicate mesh, beautifully applique.  Miss Caroline Huffman, sister of the bride, was her only attendant, and William Swain of Marysville was best man. The bride were a handsome gown of duchess satin trimmed with duchess point lace and tulle. A rulle [sic] veil fell in a cloud. Her bouquet was of white roses and tulle. Her maid of honor was also in white, an organdie over white silk. She carried a shower bouquet of Maidenhair ferns. Mr. and Mrs. White, after a honeymoon trip will go to Marysville, where they will reside. The groom is a member of the firm of White, Cooley & Cutts.
