Hannan, Florence (25 JUN 1924)

Wednesday morning at St. Balthasar's Church, Miss Florence Hanna, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Hannan, became the bride of Mr. Edward Bertz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bertz.

As the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss Calla Krause, sounded, tiny Dorothy Beaver as flower girl and Mike Aker as ring bearer, marched slowly down the aisle, followed by Miss Frances Bertz, sister of the groom, as bridesmaid and Miss Anna Kelly as maid of honor. The bride entered the church on the arm of her father, who gave her away. They were met at the Communion rail by the groom and his attendants. Rev. Stenz, assisted by Rev. Novak of Willard as deacon and Rev. Eisenmann of Abbotsford as sub-deacon, officiated. The bridesmaid wore a gown of orchid georgette made long waisted with a bouffant skirt beautifully embroidered to the pastel shades. She wore a hat to match. Miss Kelley wore corn color crepe, also made long waisted with full skirt trimmed with narrow bands of gold lace. She wore a dark brown hat. Miss Hannan was beautiful in a straight one piece gown of white crepe heavily beaded with crystal beads. She wore no ornaments. Her veil was embroidered tulle and was caught with orange blossoms and pearls. She carried a shower bouquet of brides roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Bertz wore a corsage of pink roses and Miss Kelley a corsage of sweetheart roses. The flower girl was dressed in pink organdie. The ring bearer was in white and carried the ring on a white satin pillow.

After the ceremony Miss Mary Davie sang "Because" by D'Hartolet. Mendelsohn's Wedding March was used as a recessional.

Mr. Bertz had as his groomsmen, Mr. Martin Griffin and Mr. Ray Hannan, brother of the bride.

A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, at which a large number of relatives and friends were present. Mr. and Mrs. Bertz left Wednesday afternoon for Yellowstone Park.

Both young people are well known here (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.), Mr. Bertz being connected with his father in the stock shipping business. After Aug. 1st they will be at home here.
