Ruege, Nellie (Marriage - 26 JUN 1907)

Last Wednesday evening at the home of the bride?s parents, Mr. Herman Bratz and Miss Nellie Ruege were married by the Rev. D.H. Rohrabaugh in the presence of 175 invited friends. The ceremony was to have taken place in the parlor, which had been tastefully decorated for the purpose. When it was realized that only a small number would be able tot witness the ceremony, it was quickly decided to have it on the front porch. Flowers and rugs were placed and the people gathered on the lawn. The bride and groom, with their attendants, appeared and the beautiful service was read. The bride was beautifully attired in a rich light blue silk dress trimmed with lace over which was the flowing bridal veil and Smilax. The groom wore the conventional black.

Under a large tent a bountiful wedding supper was served to all. The couple received many beautiful and useful presents, among them a fine bedroom set, a present from the Ridge friends. These worthy young people have started under the most favorable auspices and all their friends unite in wishing them prosperity and happiness.
