The district was Patti. That is correct. Also the occupation of borgese is also correct. I've also seen it written as borghese- member of the middle class.

Morrello's first name appears to be Rosaria and not Rosalia. The father of the bride was deceased.

However, if the one page you have with the document belongs to this record, then there is additional info handwritten there. For documents needed for the marriage (second image, bottom left), it lists the act of death of the parents of the groom, and it also lists the act of death of the grandfather, I believe of the bride. It also lists a death act for the first husband of the bride whose name was Carmelo di Perna.

Sabatina's last name was Salupo.

The parish name is not given-it says the parish of this town.

Just for your information, there are some more recent records online, available at familysearch.org, in case you should need these-

Thank you erudita74 for your help.

I have one question: do I have the ages correct? Is the wife of Santo 10 years older than he is?

Thank you for your assistance,
