    • O'Brien -- Smith

      Wearing frocks of lemon and pink triple georgette and large picture hats, the twin sisters of the bride were in attendance at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon for the marriage of Miss Ruby Smith (eldest daughter of Mrs. A. Smith Toogoolawah, and the late Mr. J. E. Smith) and Mr. E. J. O'Brien (third son of Mrs. E. O'Brien, Newmarket). The Rev. Norman Millar officiated. Given away by her brother, the bride was gowned in magnolia satin, featuring a fully flared skirt and a long train. Her tulle veil was held in place with a spray of orange blossom, and she carried a bouquet of pink and white flowers.

      The bridesmaids, Misses E. and D. Smith, carried bouquets to match their frocks.

      Mr. M. Fitzgerald was best man and Mr. J. Browne was groomsman.

      Later a reception was held at the home of the bride's sister at Nundah, and the bride's mother received the guests wearing a frock of nigger brown trimmed with rust. She added a hat to tone. The bridegroom's mother chose navy figured sheer and a beige hat. On leaving for the honeymoon, which will be spent in Sydney, the bride wore a traveling frock of electric blue cloque with navy accessories. [5]
