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 L. Smart.
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 his church.
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.
