A lovely ceremony Saturday morning in the rectory of St. Joseph’s Church, Wayland, marked the marriage of Miss Betty Miller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Miller of Springwater, and John F. Goodell, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Goodell of Buffalo.

The bride wore a pearl gray flowered crepe street dress with white accessories and a shoulder corsage of gardenias and pink roses.

Miss Lorene Bomstad was the bridesmaid and wore a blue flowered silk jersey street dress with white accessories and a shoulder corsage of pink roses and yellow painted daisies. Walter Gerling of Dansville was best man.

A wedding breakfast was served at 11 o’clock at Hidden Inn, Wayland.

After the breakfast the bridal couple left for a trip to Arlington, Va., to visit the bride’s sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. C. V. Wambold.

Congratulations.
