Conrad, Lorena (1 MAY 1928)

In cheerful obedience to that command of holy writ which says it is not good for man to be alone, gallant and devoted lovers, for ages and ages have been told the old old story to their fair sweethearts. Their words have not been spoken in vain but have fallen upon sympathetic ears, and from time immemorial blushing damsels have whispered that word of words, "Yes" which has brought so much joy and happiness in the world. Years may come and years may go but Cupid with his dart goes on forever. The same sweet story will continue to be told and the same happy words whispered in reply until time shall be no more. "Wherefore that God hath joined together let no man put asunder." Again the merry chimes of the wedding bells have announced the union og two confiding hearts in life’s most sacred compact.

One of the most beautiful weddings of the season occurred Tuesday, May 1st, at nine o’clock at St. John’s Catholic Church at Marshfield, when Miss Lorena Conrad of Veefkind was given in marriage to Mr. George Schmidt of Heintown.

At the appointed hour the bride and groom, attended by Misses Adella Conrad, Frances Annen and Messrs. Roman Goetz and Andrew Schmidt, marched into the church to the music of a popular wedding march. The choir rendered a beautiful anthem. In fine it was a pretty as well as impressive marriage. Father A. J. Dorrenbach, pastor of the congregation following a fitting address.

The bride’s gown was of white satin and lace, trimmed with pearls and rhinestones and she wore a veil held in place with a coronet attractively beaded with pearls and set off with many glittering rhinestones. Her shower bouquet was of pink and white carnations and sweet peas. The groom was dressed in a favorable navy blue suit. The grooms attendants, the Messrs. Roman Goetz and Andrew Schmidt also wore navy suits. Miss Conrad was dressed in meadow rose silk frock, lace trimmed and wore a large hat to match. Miss Annen wore a peach taffeta frock with a hat to match. Both had corsage bouquets of sweet peas and carnations.

The bride, a very handsome, charming and vivacious lady, is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Conrad. She is one of our most worthy young ladies and has no superior for excellent and womanly qualities; she is a general favorite in a wide extended circle and numbers her friends by the score. The groom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Schmidt and is a type of the best manhood and has many noble qualities; it may truly be said of him that he is worthy of the fair bride he has won.

At the close of the marriage ceremony in the church the bridal party was conveyed to the home of the brides parents where an elegant wedding dinner was served to many guests.

The afternoon was socially spent. Ice cream was served and a smoke of fragrant cigars was enjoyed. In the late hours of the afternoon a bountiful supper was served to the guests by the following waitresses: Linda Schroeder, Adeline Woodruff, Hulda, Fisher, Margaret Goetz, Anna and Bertha Kurz and Anna Conrad. After the supper repast the guests left for Pischer’s Hall where a wedding dance was given foe all.

A large list of presents which the happy couple received, testify to the esteem in which they are held. May their pathway through life be strewn with fragrant roses and all their cares be "little ones" is the wish of their many friends.
