WEDDED AT THE RUSSIAN CHURCH
A Groom From St. Petersburg Who Will Be Ordained on Sunday Next.
Vladimir V. Allexandrof, a representative of the Holy Synod of St. Petersburg, and Miss Rose Tsikoores, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. Tsikoores, were married last evening at 8 oclock in the Russian Church, 1715 Powell street, the archbishop conducting the impressive Eastern orthodox ceremony. The bride was attended by Miss Mae Doyle, who officiated as maid of honor, and Miss Tillie Doyle and Miss Lulu Hoffman as bridesmaids. George P. Tsikoores, Paul S. Grepachevsky, George A. Dabovich and N. Sam Martinovich assisted as groomsmen. Miss Annie Angel officiated as a little flower girl, strewing flowers along the bridal path. The bride wore a magnificent cream white satin gown. The skirt was made en train, and the corsage was trimmed with rare and costly lace. The bridesmaids were attired alike in white organdie over white silk.
After the ceremony there was a reception for the bridal party and a limited number of guests at the residence of the brides parents, 1814 Taylor street. On Sunday next the groom, who has been doing missionary work at the Russian Church at Seattle, will, at the Russian Church in this city, be ordained, and will then proceed with his bride to Seattle, where he will take charge of the church.
