Anita Bruss acted as flower girl; she was dressed in white crepe de chine and carried a basket of sweet peas. The groom and groomsmen each wore suits of dark blue.

After the ceremony a fine reception and wedding dinner were given at the residence of the bride's uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Greeler, in the town of York, Clark County, Wis., where she has made her home for a number of years past.
