Among the five or six hundred guests the intensest silence prevailed, and at the conclusion of the ceremony the parents of the bride stepped forward and saluted her with a kiss. Then followed the scenes of joyous congratulation incident to such an occasion, which promised to occupy the best portion of the night before finished.
