Poem for the day- wedding celebrations

My poem for the day is a verse from The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow(1807 - 1882). It is a tribute to two couples I know who are having their marriage blessed today.

She had sent through all the village
Messengers with wands of willow,
As a sign of invitation,
As a token of the feasting;
And the wedding-guests  assembled,
Clad in all their richest raiment,
Robes of fur and belts of wampum,
Splendid with their paint and plumage,
Beautiful with beads and tassels..

He was dressed in shirt of doeskin,
White and soft and fringed with ermine,
All inwrought with beads of wampum,..
