One of the prettiest pink-and-white weddings of the season was that of Miss Fannie Bertine Sackett to Arthur Jewett Harrison, which took place last evening in the Church of the Incarnation, Gates and Franklin avenues. The ceremony was performed in an imposing manner by the Rev. J. G. Bacchus, pastor of the church, at 8:30 o'clock. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Guernsey Sackett of 477 Greene avenue, and is prominent in Bedford district society, while the groom is a prosperous lawyer of this city. By the time set for the performance of the ceremony the church edifice was crowded with a fashionable assemblage of the relatives and friends of the contracting parties. Decorations on an elaborate scale added an indescribable beauty to the scene, the beautiful and fragrant groups of azaleas and other cut flowers being set off in artistic manner with stately palms and ferns. The bride, followed by her train, proceeded down the aisle, resting on the arm of her mother, she being attired in a white satin gown, with point lace trimmings and pearl ornaments, while her mother wore a black velvet dress with point lace trimmings. Miss Sackett's gown was surmounted by a tulle veil, caught up with a knot of orange blossoms and carried a large bouquet of white roses and lilies-of-the-valley. Miss Marie Josephine Delatour, the maid of honor, wore pink silk, and the bridesmaids, Miss Mae E. Lang and Sarah T. Kelley, organdy over silk. The ushers were Dr. James P. Warbasse, George R. Sheldon, Amos P. Haerley and Benjamin Haerley, and the best man Frederick Bagely, a lawyer from Buffalo. The bride was given away by her brother, John T. Sackett. After the ceremony the relatives and near friends repaired to the home of the bride, on Greene avenue, where a reception was held, and an abundant wedding breakfast was served. The many ornamental and useful presents received were displayed to good advantage in an upper room, and were admired by all. After the breakfast Mr. and Mrs. Harrison left the city on a ten days' trip to Washington, to reside on their return at the bride's home, where they will start housekeepiing. They have also decided to hold two receptions, May 3 and 10, for which extensive preparations will be made.

Arthur Jewett Harrison, who died at his residence, 477 Greene avenue, on December 8, after a lingering illness, was born in Brooklyn and resided here all his life. He was a lawyer of the firm of Warbasse & Harrison, Montague street, and had a large practice both in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Mr. Harrison was an athlete and was fond of all outdoor sports.
