Description This wedding was part of an elaborate July 4, 1912, celebration in Anacortes. Howell Morrison and Alice Naidene Lanterman were married on Saturday night, July 6th, by the Rev. W. A. Stevenson of Bellingham. "Public Wedding Attracts Many." "Wild cheers greeted the coming of the bridal party and the crowds who had waited patiently in the fine rain for over an hour lifted up a joyous yell that could be heard the other end of town when knot was tied. Attending the bridal party were Mrs. Morrison, mother of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. Lanterman, parents of the bride. The young happy pair settled down to housekeeping after a brief trip to Bellingham." Charlotte Morrison and Martin Pardis were witnesses. This public wedding may have supplied inspiration of the "Marineers' Pageant Mass Wedding" in 1938. The location of this 1912 wedding appears to have been near Guemes Channel and Ocean Dock at the foot of Commercial. Note warehouse of Anacortes Lumber & Box at 3rd and R Avenue visible in the rear.
