English coverage of the Heen/Notley wedding, with better pictures, 1906.



An impressive ceremony at St. Andrew’s cathedral last evening united Miss Lily Notley and Mr. William H. Heen in marriage. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a large number of friends. The bride was attended by Mrs. Leslie, as matron of honor, and the groom was served by his brother, Mr. Afong Heen, as best man. Rev. F. Fitz officiated.

The church was simply decorated, a border of waxy white flowers mingled with fern leaves adorning the chancel rail. The bride was given away by her father, Mr. Charles Notley.

The ushers were H. A. Kaulukou, William Jordan and John Marcallino.

After the ceremony a wedding supper was served at the home of the bride’s parents to the intimate friends and relatives of the happy couple. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. Leslie, Capt. and Mrs. Parker, Miss Parker, Mrs. E. S. Boyd, H. A. Kaulukou, J. Marcallino.

The couple leave for their honeymoon on the steamship Manchuria of Wednesday for Shanghai, where the groom purposes locating for the practice of law. In leaving Honolulu, which has always been his home, he severs his connection with the law firm of Heen and Kaulukou. Mr. Heen is a University of California man.

[Interesting to compare the Hawaiian and English coverage.]
