What do you think the last name is for the bride?

Good evening! I've been trying to break down a brick wall in my family tree (profile Green-37098, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Green-37098) I have a theory that her name on this document is not Green, but Greer. Would anyone mind taking a look at the marriage record (see link below) and offering an opinion?

First could be either, halfway down it looks like Greene to me, with an extra e, unless that is an excited flourish

I thought it was Green for quite a while, but (and maybe I'm wrong on this) at the top of the document, the letter at the end of her last name looks similar to the "r" in her first name, Hester/Ester.....which is why I'm questioning it.

The 'n' in Green looks like the 'n's in Seventeenth to me.

I cut and pasted it over the "n" in the word and.   Fit almost perfectly.  The "r" in Hester looks completely different.  I would say it is an "n"
