A quiet wedding

Two hearts that beat as one – The Montreal Gazette Dec. 17, 1879

A young couple from Burlington registered their names at the Ottawa Hotel yesterday morning, and in the afternoon the gallant swain requested the obliging manager to give him the address of a clergyman, as he and his fair companion wished to enter the hymeneal state. The request was complied with, and at four p.m. the Rev. Geo H. Wells performed the ceremony in the drawing-room of the hotel. There was none of the excitement which the usual accessories to the stereotyped wedding festival occasion, and the same afternoon the newly married couple left as quietly as they arrived. We wish them a journey though wedded life as unruffled as their entrance into it.
