A small company of relatives and friends assembled Sunday evening in Trinity Episcopal Church to witness the marriage of Miss Mayotte Dickinson and Colonel Coffee.

The bride is the daughter of Medical Director and Mrs. Dwight Dickinson of washington, DC and came to California to marry Colonel Coffee who comes from Carthage, Mo. and is assigned to duty on the Boston at Mare Island.

The church was decorated in pink and green and the pretty ceremony was solemnized by Rev John Bakewell.

The bride wore a gown of ivory silk trimmed with old point lace and a long tulle veil reaching almost the the hem of her gown.

Miss Mary Le Conte was the maid of honor gowned in white net and carrying an armful of pink blossoms.

Ensign CC Soule acted as best man and the ushers were Paymaster EF Stalmaher, Lieutenant WT Hoadley, Spencer C Brown Jr., and Spencer E Dickinson.

The bride is a grand-daughter of the late J. Ross Browne, a well known pioneer. After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Charles Hoffmann of this city.
