Baker – McGavin Wedding

Last Wednesday in Trinity church in San Francisco, Miss Helen Baker was united in marriage to Drummond MacGavin (sic) by Bishop Ford Nichols.

The bridal party included Miss Dorothy Baker, as maid of honor, Miss Alexandria Hamilton, Miss Ruth Richards, Miss Sarah Coffin, Miss Louise Boyd, Miss Louisiana Foster, Miss Dolly MacGavin, Miss Bessie Ashton and Miss Claire Nichols.

Carhon Curtiss acted as best man and the ushers were Leavitt Baker, Phillip Baker, Eyre Pinckard, Herbert Schmidt, Herbert Baker, Roy Sommers and Douglas Fry.

The bride is well known in this city having on many occasions been here for the summer society festivities.

Mae Gibson – Robert Foster

A charming home wedding, that of Miss Mae Gibson and Robert Foster, took place in the fifth avenue residence of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frederick h. Gibson, in this city at 8 o’clock last evening. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Lynn T. White of the Presbyterian church, in the presence of the families and intimate friends of the young couple.

Miss Gibson was a beautiful bride in her exquisite bridal robe of white satin and lace. Her only attendant was Miss Meline Lauselle, while Arthur Foster supported his brother during the ceremony.

A wedding supper followed the ceremony. The rooms were beautifully decorated with chrysanthemums and other decorations.

After a honeymoon, Mr. Foster will take his bride to Hopland to reside. Robert Foster is the third son of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Foster, of this city, and Hopland is one of their large land estates which is managed by the young bridegroom.

The marriage is the culmination of a pretty romance which had its beginning when Miss Mae Gibson was one of the daintiest and prettiest of the San Rafael school girls, and the happy bridegroom was carrying her books to school. Their engagement came later, bringing the happiest wishes from everyone – for they are more than a well liked pair, both in Marin county and in society on the other side of the bay.
