Poppe, Clara (12 JUN 1929)

At 1:30 o'clock, Wednesday afternoon, June 12, 1929, the Globe Lutheran Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding, when Mr. Leo Hemp and Miss Clara Poppe were united in holy wedlock, Rev. W. Motzkus, pastor of the Globe Church, officiating. The young couple were attended by John Hemp, the groom's brother, and Miss Sophia Poppe, the bride's sister.

The bride was dressed in white silk, wore a veil and carried a bouquet of white roses. The bridesmaid wore pink silk and carried pink roses. The groom wore a suit of blue serge and the groomsman wore a brown suit. After the ceremony the bridal party and relatives drove to the home of the bride's mother, where a bountiful dinner was served.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Hemp of the town of Weston, Clark County, Wis., attended rural school and helped on the home farm. He is considered one of the most reliable and industrious young farmers of his community. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Charles Poppe of the town of Weston. After completing rural school she entered Neillsville High School, graduating from the Teachers Training Course in the class of '25, and since graduating has taught successfully in the rural schools.

The bride and groom are taking a honeymoon trip by auto, visiting relatives at Sheboygan and other points, and on their return will begin housekeeping on the groom's farm in Weston.
