Steffen, Clara (10 JUL 1929)

The Zion Reformed Church in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., was the scene of a very pretty wedding Wednesday afternoon, July 10, 1929, when Mr. Walter Marg and Miss Clara Steffen were united in wedlock, Rev. E. H. Vornholt officiating.

The groom's brother, Kurth Marg, was groomsman, and the bride's cousin Miss Mildred Steffen of Elroy, was bridesmaid.

The bride was beautifully gowned in a dress of blue satin faced crepe trimmed with silver lace and rhinestones and wore a veil of white tulle and a wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of white and pink roses. The bridesmaid wore a dress of pink changeable taffeta and carried pink roses. The flower girl, Miss Florence Miller, was dressed in white crepe and wore a head band set with rhinestones. She scattered pink roses as the bride and groom marched down the aisle. The groom and groomsman wore suits of dark blue.

Florence Eberhardt played the "Bridal Chorus", Nancy and Beatrice Deutsch sang "Close to the Heart of thy Savior" and Rev. Vornholt sand a solo, "I Love You Truly."

After the ceremony a bountiful wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride's parents and in the evening a free wedding dance was given at H. Markwardt's. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Marg of North Pine Valley, Clark County. He grew to manhood on the home farm, attended Pine Valley Mound School and St. John's Lutheran School. During the past year he has worked at the condensery in Neillsville. He is a young man of steady habits, honest and upright and highly esteemed by all who know him.

The bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Steffen who live in Pine Valley south of the city. She attended Neillsville schools, completing the grades and a part of the high school course and has since then assisted with the household duties at home. She is a young lady of pleasing personality and has many friends.

The young people will live for the present at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Steffen, the groom continuing to work at the condensery.

The bridal pair will take a wedding trip to parts of southern Wisconsin.

They received many beautiful and valuable presents, for which they wish to express their sincere thanks.
