Welsh, Dorothy (17 JUN 1925)

On Wednesday, June 17th, 1925, a very pretty wedding occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Burton Welsh, when their daughter, Miss Dorothy, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. M. C. Calvert, the Rev. G. M. Baergen, Pastor of the local Congregational Church performing the ceremony.

The bride wore a beautiful white dress of Spanish lace over satin and carried a bridal bouquet of tea roses and ferns, while Miss Jessie Zenor, her former classmate, who acted as bridesmaid, was dressed in a pale blue silk and carried a bouquet of roses. The groom wore the conventional black and was attended by Roy Amunrud.

The wedding was solemnized under a bower of foliage and flowers, and was very impressive, the double ring ceremony being used.

To the strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. J. D. Cullen, the bride marched tot he arch on the arm of her father, and there was given in marriage.

After the wedding, all sat down to partake of the sumptuous wedding dinner prepared by the bride's mother. The tables were prettily decorated with cut flowers.

Out of town relatives at the wedding were: Albert Welsh, grandfather from Elmira, Wash., Mrs. Annie Mingel, a grandmother of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Wassink and son of Baker, Mont.

Late in the afternoon the young couple left for Beach where they boarded the train for Miles City, (amid the shower of rice and old shoes), where they will attend Summer School.

Mr. Calvert came from Ottumwa, Iowa, where he graduated and taught school for four years. He has a sister and brother at Miles City. Since Closing his school this spring, he has been working on the Burton Welsh farm. Mr. Calvert is a very genial young man, and after teaching a few years, intends to go to the University. He has made many friends during his short stay in this vicinity.

Miss Welsh is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Burton Welsh, well known and highly respected citizens who resided about six miles east of Wibaux. She graduated from the Wibaux County High School a few years ago and has been teaching in the Co. for the past four years. She is very popular among the young set of this county.

Both these young people have a host of friends who join the Gazette in wishing them a very successful journey through life. (Wibaux Pioneer Gazette)
