Marriage announcement outside of the Vital Statistics Column, 1912.

BOUND WITH THE THREE-STRAND CORD OF TRUE LOVE

Within the Anglican Church of St. Andrew’s, on this past Saturday evening, the youths, Miss Annabel Low and Albert Ruddle were joined together by the Rev. Leopold Kroll. The bride was donned with a white dress and a sheer veil, and atop her head was a lei of orange blossoms. She held a bouquet of flowers in her hand as seen in all marriage ceremonies, and she held a book of prayers in her hand. It was her father, Eben Low, who gave her into the care of her new parent, her husband. Misses Glorinda and Laura Low were the bride’s maids, and they held in their hands, bouquets of lavender roses. The best man was Mr. Kinegal, and the gentlemen in charge of hospitality were Stillman and Percy Deverill.

Miss Annabel Low who married Ruddle is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Low of this town. She was a student who graduated from the College of Kapunahou [Punahou] three years ago, and after some time in the teachers’ school, she was appointed as a teacher at a school on Hawaii Island, where she first met this man whom she wed, Mr. Ruddle, who is employed in a high position at the volcano. They will be returning to the Kanilehua of Hilo on Wednesday’s Mauna Kea where they will make their permanent home from here forth.
