Wednesday morning at the Dominican church Miss Mary A. Tobin, the attractive and accomplished daughter of Thomas Tobin, West Oak Street, and William F. Hoffman were married by Rev. Father Fowler with nuptial mass.  The wedding was a quiet one, the only attendants being Messrs.

Pretty and simple were the characteristics of the wedding of Miss Catherine Glynn and Will Mackin at the Dominican church Tuesday at noon.  James Duane and Sam Joyce were the ushers.  The bridal party entered the church to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march, played by Miss Aggie Richter, of St. Cecilia’s Church, and were met at the altar by Rev. Father Fowler, who performed the ceremony uniting their lives.  The bride wore an exquisite costume of Paris muslin and lace, with white veil, and carried a shower bouquet of white carnations, while the groom was attired in the conventional black.  After the ceremony the newly wedded young people were given an elegant wedding dinner and reception at the residence of the bride’s uncle, Patrick Glynn, West Oak Street, where large numbers called to tender congratulations and wishes for a life blessed with happiness and success.  They will return next week from their wedding trip.

Among the many marriages this season that which attracted the most attention in Italian and Catholic society circles was the forget-me-not wedding of Morgan J. Parlin and Miss Catherine A.
