Seattle Star, September 10, 1908
Parties and Other Social Affairs of Note.

Beneath a bower of white and green Miss Cornelia Stevenson and Mr. Dalbert Earle Twitchell last evening were united in marriage.

The ceremony was performed at 8 o'clock by Rev. M. A. Matthews, D. D. of the First Presbyterian church.

Immediately preceding the ceremony, Miss Genevieve Chambers, of Oakland, Cal., an intimate friend of the bride, sang, "Oh, Fair, Oh, Sweet and Holy," As the first strains of the Lohengrin "Wedding March" sounded, the groom and his best man, Mr. James Urquhart, of Chehalis, appeared, followed by Miss Sarah Stevenson, as maid of honor.

The bride was brought in and given into the keeping of the groom by Mr. James Bushness, an old friend of the family.

After a very impressive ceremony, a dainty supper was servied in the pink decorated dining room.

The bride wore a simple gown of white satin and old rare lace, and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley

Miss Sarah Stevenson was gowned in pink chiffon and carried maiden hair ferns.

Miss Francis Stevenson, a younger sister of the bride, and Miss Olive Powells were ribbon bearers and were dressed in white.

Mrs. Twitchell is the oldest daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth Stevenson, of Capitol Hill, and Mr. Twitchell is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Twitchell, of Spokane.

After a short honeymoon, Mr. and Mrs. Twitchell will reside in Spokane, Wash.
