Storyline

The dressmaker's pretty daughter meets the son of her mother's patron while on an errand to deliver a dress. The son is attracted by the girl and later proposes marriage, which she, greatly flattered, accepts. This seems to be a dream to her, but its realization is in marrying the young man. Although the mother of the boy strongly objects to the marriage, still she makes the best of it, and receives the girl in her home as her daughter-in-law. The girl, coming from her humble surroundings, is dazzled by her new experience and, being rather attractive, elicits the attentions of many of the male acquaintances of her husband's family. One in particular is rather more direct than the others and loses no opportunity to place himself in her way.

The audience was clearly pleased with it
10 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The plot of this film turns upon the sight of an orange blossom wreath and a bridal veil worn by a young woman at her wedding. The difficulty leading up to her attempted elopement, stayed by these remembrances, is one which might be common enough and could be easily understood by almost any audience. Misfortunes come, and there are certain differences which may arise in every home. Elopements do not always follow but sometimes the tempter is present. The Biograph company has depicted this phase of life with much discretion and with a appreciation of the requirements. The audience was clearly pleased with it and apparently it is of the type that will be understood and liked by almost any audience. - The Moving Picture World, February 11, 1911
