The Southminister United Church, Ottawa, Ontario, was the sceen of a pretty wedding when Gerene Leger, daughter of Mrs. Gerard Leger and the late Mr. Leger, Moncton, became the bride of James Moore, son of Mrs. Lynn Moore and the late Mr. Moore of Ottawa. The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Lloyd Shorten. Baskets of large commercial 'mums adorned the alter and the guest pews were marked with white satin bows and streamers. Nuptial music was played by the organist of the church as well as appropriate selections during the signing of the register. The bride, given away by her brother, Terence, wore a floor length gown of white silk faced Chantilly lace. The sleeveless gown was fashioned on slim skimer lines featuring a high raffled neckline from which stemmed a row of tiny covered buttons between scalloped edgings of lace extending to the hem line. Her veil of matching lace was caught to a flat bow of peau de sole and floated to a chapel train. She carried a basket which contained a large Sensation rose and a profusion of Pinocchio 'mums, miniature carnations, Sweet William, Lilies of the Valley, shasta daisies and feverfews. Her bridesmaid, Miss Gail Warren of Moncton, chose a cage style, hot pink, floor length gown of lace over silk. The sleeves were elbow length with daisies appiqued around the edges. She wore a matching bow in her hair and carried a basket of flowers identical to the bride's. The best man was Douglas Pollock, brother-in-law of the groom. The ushers were Robert Richard of Moncton and Ottawa, and Jack Smyth of Ottawa. The reception, catered to by La maison Branchard, was held at the home of the groom's sister, Mrs. Douglas Pollock, Ottawa. Following the reception, the happy couple left on a three week honeymoon trip, touring Western Ontario and Eastern Michigan, U.S.A. For going away, the bride wore a two piece mint green suit with white hat, black patent shoes and purse and her corsage was of pale yellow roses.
