Pretty Home Wedding Wednesday Afternoon
The summer home of Mr. and Mrs. William Hillebrand, at Cross Lake,
was the scene of a very pretty home wedding Wednesday afternoon
when their eldest daughter, Louise Mae became the bride of Robert
The ceremony took place at four o'clock in the presence of over
one hundred relatives and friends of the contracting parties, and
was performed by Rev. A. B. Curtis of Dexter, Mich., who has been
a close friend of the Hillebrand family for a number of years, and
who formerly lived at Spear where he presided at the baptismal
services of the bride and her sisters at the time they united with
The home was beautifully decorated for the occasion and at exactly
four o'clock as the strains of the wedding march, played by Mrs.
Wm. Teckert, sounded through the rooms, the bridal party appeared
and took their place under a beautiful canopy of flowers and
bells, and as a hush decended upon the merry gathering the
impressive words were spoken.
The bride was attired in a gown of white georgette crepe and
carried a bouquet of white roses. She was given in marriage by
her father, and was attended by her sister Charity, who wore a
gown of pink georgette crepe and carried a bouquet of pink roses.
Donald, the only brother of the groom served as best man. Little
Louise Simons, neice of the groom acted as flower girl, while
Martha Hillebrand, youngest sister of the bride and Helen and
Irene Kettlehut served as ribbon girls.
After the ceremony and congratulations were over a sumptuous
luncheon served, after which the bride and groom made a hasty
getaway. Where they were going and how long they intend to be
away, is their secret, which they shared with no one, but suffice
to say their return will be closely watched by those who wish to
give them a hearty welcome home. Upon their return home they will
set up housekeeping at once in the new home which the groom has
built and furnished for the reception of his bride.
The groom, who is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. William Smart,
has lived at this place all his life, and the bride has been a
resident of this village for several years, and both have hosts of
friends who unite in wishing them a bright and happy future.
