Miss Sara Montfort ~ Mr. Gilbert C. Robinson
Nov 20, 1917

What is declared to have been one of the most beautiful weddings that ever occurred in Butler took place Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock, when Miss Sara Montfort, the bright and cultured young daughter of Hon. and Mrs. O.T. Montfort, became the bride of Mr. Gilbert C. Robinson, of Montezuma. It was celebrated at the palatial home of the Clerk of the Superior Court, the bride’s father, the home being beautifully and tastefully decorated, pretty and fragrant fall blossoms being used in the decorations in profusion with quantities of carnations. The marriage ceremony was impressively read to them by Rev. J.H. Stanford, of Columbus.

The wedding was preceded by a delightful musical program, including two vocal numbers, “A Bowl of Roses” and “At Dawning”, which were charmingly rendered by Mrs. Julian Edwards. The bridal party entered to the strains of Lohengrin’s wedding march, the bride on the arm of her brother, Mr. L.F. Montfort, and the groom with his twin brother, Mr. Adams Robinson. During the ceremony Humoresque was softly played; after the ceremony Mendelsohn’s wedding march was rendered by Miss Atholene Childs.

Immediately after the ceremony the couple left for points of interest in Florida, where they will spend two weeks, boarding the train amid a perfect shower of rice and a chorus of goodwishes. Upon their return from the “Land of Flowers” they will reside in Montezuma, where the groom is a prominent attorney associated with his brother-in-law, Hon. Jule Felton.

It is the source of regret that the fortunate groom lives in another city, which will remove from our midst one of the most attractive and popular young women ever reared in our town, and who has always taken a leading part in the social and religious life of Butler.

As a pleasurable coincident to this wedding, it is of interest to state that the groom’s twin brother, Mr. Adam Robinson, a prominent druggist of Byromville, was happily married that same day at high noon to Miss Clara Adams, one of Byromville’s most charming young women, each brother acting as the best man at the wedding of the other. The latter joined the former couple here both departing together on the bridal journey to Florida.

Among those present at this elegant wedding was a very large group of friends and prominent citizens of Montezuma and other places.

An unusually large number of handsome and costly presents bore testimony to the popularity of the young couple.

The Herald joins many warm friends in extending hearty congratulations and the very best of good wishes for a long, useful and happy life.
