Reyer, Emma (OCT 1923)

(The micro-film containing this marriage announcement was cut off on the left side, so some of the article is paraphrased)

The marriage of Miss Emma Reyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Reyer of Colby, to Fred Distelhorst, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Distelhorst, of this village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), took place at the home of the bride's parents at Colby on ?sday evening at 6:00 p.m., Rev. Lucas officiating.

The bride was beautifully attired in white charmeuse satin trimmed with chantilly lace and carried a bouquet of pink roses. The young couple was unattended except for little Ruth Distelhorst of Sheboygan, who acted as flower girl.

The rooms were tastily decorated in yellow and white, bouquets of chrysanthemums adding to the beauty of the scene.

The wedding march was played by A. Nelson and vocal selections tendered by Messrs. Harry Bender and Herbert Schmutzler.

After the ceremony dinner was served to the guests and then Mr. and Mrs. Distelhorst left for a wedding trip through the east, including New York, Washington and other points.

Fred was a Dorchester boy and has ? good always. He finished the grade school here and then Colby high school, and after that the University at Madison, and he didn't slide under the beds of ease, either, he provided his own money with hard work and as usual made good. He secured a fine position in Cincinnati and then the war came, and as a true patriot Fred responded, again ? good and returned from overseas as Capt. Distelhorst. We're sure that again Fred has done well for though we don't know his young lady we have heard she is an outstanding young teacher who has been very successful at her work.

They will return about the 20th and make their home temporarily with the bride's parents.

The Clarion joins their many Dorchester friends in offering hearty congratulations.
