Notes for Clinton Barnum SEELEY/Florence TUTTLE

From the New York Times, 31 Dec 1896, pg. 5: A day's Weddings. Seeley-Tuttle. A very pretty Holiday wedding was that of Miss Florence Tuttle, daughter of Austin S. Tuttle, to Clinton Barnum Seeley, a grandson of P. T. Barnum, at Trinity Chapel, in West Twenty-fifth Street, yesterday afternoon. The Rev. Dr. William H. Vibbert, the vicar in charge, performed the ceremony.

The color scheme of the church decorations was green and red, and consisted of Yuletide evergreens and wild Southern smilax, intertwined with red roses. Miss Tuttle's gown was of white satin trimmed with old point lace. Her veil of point lace was confined to her coiffure with several jeweled pins, the gifts of the bridegroom. She was given away by her cousin, Sidney T. Clark. She carried a shower bouquet of white Bride roses and lilies of the valley.

Miss Austina Tuttle, the sister of the bride, was the maid of honor. She was costumed in a white silk gown, covered with chiffon and trimmed with collar and belt of red satin. She carried a shower bouquet of red carnations.

The bridesmaids were Miss Lydie Robie, Miss Angie Fleiss, Miss Anna Fleiss, and Miss Fannie Seeley, a cousin of the bridegroom. They were prettily attired in white silk, with collarettes and belts of red satin.

They carried bouquets of red carnations tied with long red ribbons. They wore large black velvet Gainsborough picture hats, dressed with black ostrich tips and trimmed with white silk. The best man was Herbert B. Seeley, brother of the bridegroom. The ushers were Clarence Hamilton of Orange, N. J., Wilson Marshall, Louis Ogden, Edwin Delnoy, Marshall Bishop, and H. A. Bergman.
