Meyer, Hilda (Marriage - 26 Aug. 1925)

Mr. John Thoma and Miss Hilda Meyer were united in marriage at 2:30 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, August 26, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Neillsville, Rev. H. Brandt officiating. They were attended by Mr. August Meyer, twin brother of the bride and Miss Lillian Thoma, sister of the groom. The bride was dressed in white crepe de chine trimmed with narrow lace and carried a bridal bouquet of smilax, roses and ferns; the bridesmaid was dressed in light blue georgette crepe trimmed with cream colored lace and carried a bouquet of smilax and pink tea roses. The groom and the best man wore dark blue serge suits.

After the ceremony the bridal party drove to the grooms’ house in Weston where relatives and friends gathered for a bountiful wedding dinner, fully 100 guests being in attendance. The reception continued into the evening when dancing was engaged in, a fine four-piece orchestra furnishing the music. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. B. Thoma in Weston. He has lived all his life on the home farm, and is a steady industrious young man, who has the highest respect of all who know him. He is an enterprising and progressive farmer and a helpful young man in the community. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Meyer of Sydney in the town of Pine Valley. She came here with her parents when a small girl and has spent most of her life at home except one year when she was employed at Milwaukee. Her home training and natural aptitude fit her will for the duties of a home of her own. The young couple began housekeeping at once at the groom’s home farm.

The Press expresses the hopes of all who know this fine young couple that their life may be one of happiness.
