    A Novel Wedding - 1882

    A novel wedding took place at Point Arena last Sunday afternoon. Eugene W. Callnon, First Assistant Keeper of the Light, was married to Miss Florence W. Winfree, of Point Arena, in the lantern of the Point Arena Lighthouse. The occurrence was comical as well as novel. Those inside and outside were ridiculous, as they viewed each other through the magnifying prisms, and laughter could hardly be restrained, and, the officiating minister Rev. George Adams, could scarcely maintain sufficient gravity to complete the ceremony. After the knot was tied, the happy couple and their friends descended from their aerial altar and partook of a most bountiful repast.
